I need to be in the vicinity of Mexico City early March, so I'm hesitant to go too far south now (there well be plenty of time for that later). Plus somehow I want to take a week's "vacation" to SF mid-Feb for my birthday. Maybe Guanajuato is the right answer... or maybe it is a good place to hang out in March because in April a friend is planning to ride down to meet me for the Journey South. Eh, one day at a time I guess
