    Im headed to Panama.

    Leaving Progreso Yucatan Mexico ( https://maps.google.com/maps?q=progreso+yucatan+mexico&ll=21.279137,-89.664917&spn=2.779152,5.410767&hnear=Progreso,+Yucatan,+Mexico&gl=us&t=m&z=8 ) April 10th.. or maybe 12th


    Ill be on a 650cc . I enjoy dirt roads and tent camping. Difficult trails are a plus.

    I've got 2.5 weeks to get to Panama City. basically looking for some people to sit around the camp and shoot the shit with at the end of the day.

    i've got my route planned already... should be interesting :wink:
    but if something looks interesting ill definitely change it.

    Looking to have a good time on this trip.

    I do not snore, I do not speak spanish, I dont talk too much, This is not my first rodeo. I wake up early but sometimes late. If there's beer ill drink it, if pot ill smoke it, if paote ill eat it. if there is a strange trail im also likely to go down it until i get stuck in a tangled mess.

    general overview:
    Progreso mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, costa rica, panama

    give me a shout if you will be "down Central" April 10-May 1st
    i should have wifi capability on this trip.

    Yes, you are probably badass. But you are probably not Pete level badass.

    Sounds like the potential for a great ride ..... AND the potential for serious problems , verry , VERRY serious problems .
    Lay off the drugs, all three varieties you list plus any others you may have in mind. The ride itself should be plenty good enough.

    If you're raised in AL, you probably have enough smarts to stay out of the briars and tangled situations.

    Have a kick-ass time.

    I think I'll agree with SB on this one.

    yes thanks.

    im just looking for the people who will be in the area around the same time so that i can add them to my contacts or keep up with their ride reports. maybe meet up down there at some point, go for a ride out in the boonies, get stuck in the mud yadda yadda.

    surely there will be some people riding through central america around this time.

    Beer is not a drug, it is the life blood. :freaky
    Too bad I won't be down there until July, I'd show you some tangled trails.
