Finally actually throwing my had in the ring with this one. I'm planning a trip from Nashville, TN to Santiago, Chile starting in early August of this year. The only really concrete parts of my route I have planned out are crossing into Mexico via Laredo, and taking the Stahlratte around the Darien Gap either the third week of August or second week of September. I'm hoping for a mix of light/moderate dirt and pavement. The big unknowns for me are the volatile areas in Mexico, as that seems to change on an almost daily basis, and places to avoid in Guatemala and Honduras. Doing the trip on my '17 Africa Twin, with a mix of camping and hostel-hopping, and I don't have any scheduling constraints, so I can definitely take my time and explore. That said, I'm budgeting around two months for the trip. I did have a travel partner lined up, but his side of things fell through due to work changes, so if anyone's thinking about making a trip through Latin America around that time, let's link up!
