    Not there yet, but will be soon. I am currently in Oaxaca, but am leaving on Saturday and going to be headed that way. I may be slow but I am sure I will be there while you are there. Always nice to meet up and swap stories.

    Hey Paul, good to meet you yesterday in Monterrico. I wish I had gone to Antigua to shoot the shit with you. Maybe on your way back around. Semana Santa is from the 23rd to the 30th of March. Guaterider SHOULD be back by then, or around then by my predictions....lol:evil

    I'm crossing into Mexico on November 20th and will be heading to Costa Rica, not sure when I'll be near you or others but I'll keep watching the posts; not sure time wise, as this is going to be my first trip of this sort, Robert.

    We will not be there until mid Dec ish but we are very interested in which language scholl you chose as we are going to do the same thing.

    Any info on that would be great, we will be in Creel tonight and the Copper Canyon.

    If you are coming north me may cross tracks as we are heading south

    Cheers Andi

    I should be there tomorrow if all the glue holding my bike together stays in place! Did a few too many back roads today comming down from the north, way beyond my skills. Going to try and stay off the dirt for a little now.:shog
