I have approximately ten individuals that are interested in the trip that I am planning on doing from Leon, Guanajuato to Panama. I know that the ten will probably end up only being one or two when all is said and done. My intent is to leave on Monday, February 15 from my city of Leon. I can also meet people on the way in Mexico City or wherever else on the way down. I am writing the email to solicit info, ideas and interest. I will also be posting it on my website that is currently being developed at LifeofAnAdventurer.com as well as the various motorcycle forums. If you are interested please send me your email address. All emails will be blocked so no one can see your address.
I am blocking out 4 weeks for this adventure and if I end up staying longer, I will do that as long as my manager doesn't burn down my restaurant, Gringo Teriyaki.
I would like to bring camping gear as well as sleep in places along the way. I think that by bringing the gear, we will be have a more rewarding trip when we find some beautiful off the beaten path location. That does not mean that I wont appreciate a warm shower and comfortable bed at the end of the day.
I think that at 47, I don't want to do punishing 500 mile days. I want to be able to smell the coffee and stop and do some sightseeing along the way. See some ruins, sit on a beach and drink a beer and eat some seafood. I would love to go fishing one day and maybe do some snorkeling.
A little about me. 47 year old male with extensive camping, boating, fishing, kayaking, diving, hunting and traveling experience. Have traveled the world and have spent lots of time in Baja whether it be in a 4x4 or motorcycle. Some of the best times of my life were there camping in desolate locations and catching fish off the beach. Grew up in Los Angeles and lived in Phoenix. I am also EMT certified and speak Spanish.
I would like to enter through Guatamala, then to El Salvador,through Honduaras then to Nicaragua then to Costa Rica and then to Panama. If I don't make it all the way to Panama, then so be it.
On the return trip I would like to go through all the return counties but also stop in Belize and exit into Mexico around Cancun. Then back to reality.
