The problem, as I've complained about many times, is that there is really no
trip planning forum at ADVrider. This type of info really has no place given
the current set up.

The Upcoming forum is all about group rides and events with endless crap about where everyone is going to meet up on the first day. Useless.

The regional forums don't even have a Mexico or S. America section.

Its not a Ride Report, cause it hasn't happened yet.

So tell me.. where does this type of important travel information belong?

I've bitched and moaned about this for a year or so. The Mods don't care
or don't get it.

We NEED a Trip Planning forum. A place were solid and proven advice like
yours can be dissiminated, shared and added to. A place where travel questions can be answered and specific current info can be exchanged.

HU is good for this but is little used and is mostly European. HU is helpful and
Grant's site is great, but I think ADVrider could do something just as good.

STICKY? HELL YES!!!

I propose this Thread be moved....into a New Forum.
Trip Planning.
Mr. Loco,
I have to agree 100% with you on this. I'm getting ready to ride from Matamoros to Manangua in January and it's really hard finding info from those who have made similar trips and made posts like this excellent one. Here's my vote for creating a Trip Planning forum and also for making this the first sticky in that forum.

STICKY? HELL YES!!!

TRIP PLANNING FORUM? DOUBLE HELL YES!!!
