I have a blurb in there too about lessons learned traveling in Mexico.

Roughly C.A. rainy season ends oct 16 and starts again june 15th.
Most all thru riders enter into mexico aprox nov 1 and head south.
That is the ideal method to stay drier north of the equator.
Thanks for all the advice. I'm currently reading the recommended book (amongst several others) and am learning a fair amount, dog-earing page after page, and getting more and more excited with every chapter. This seems to be (by far) the best book I've read on the subject thus far (in terms of planning/preparation).

Regarding Mexico, I was actually thinking of hoofing it due south, entering through Nuevo Laredo and making my way to Monterrey and then down the east coast. However, after some research I've decided against this as I don't particularly want to get chased down, robbed, shot and/or hung from a bridge. Am I being overreactive?
