OK, it is almost time for this trip to begin! The plan is "there is no plan". We have a list of possible places to visit and have not even decided on the exact route that will be used the first day into Mexico or where we will spend the night. I have ask for and received suggestions, they are included in this thread: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=534911 We will stop at my brother's on the way to Piedras Negras and spend two nights before heading further south. We welcome suggestions as we travel including places to see and good economical motel accommodations. We like the Mom & Pop type establishments. We will be in Mexico approximately 30 days, with a total trip length of 35 days, but this is flexible! We are retired, so there is no rigid time schedule. While we have submitted a number of Ride Reports in the last few years, this will be our first attempt at posting while on the road. Please don't expect much! At most, I plan on spending one hour per day on the RR and that it if we have Wifi. Hopefully what you miss in "volume" from some of our other RRs will be made up for by the "in the moment reporting". BTW, my wife's name is Sheryl and I am Donnie. We have traveled over most of USA & Canada and are now planning on slowly broadening our horizons further south.
