I would do it all again in a heartbeat, but take two weeks along the way to learn Spanish. That was the most important thing I learned. I envied Chick with his ability to draw a crowd and tell the story of our ride along the way. He made my trip very easy, but I still think I missed out on a lot.
There are a million other things that I've forgotten to capture. I'm hoping those with their own riding experience in Central America will come forward and help build this into a worthwhile document. I've left out entire portions on Cuotas and Libre roads in Mexico, not to mention road-side vendors and beach resorts. There is just too much to try to capture in one document, so you'll have to go south and learn some of it on your own!
Hope this helps. I look forward to meeting many of you on the road. I'm going to try to make the Horizons Unlimited gathering in Creel this fall. Maybe I'll see you there.
