You certainly have a way with words, and can tell a story with the best of them! I read your trip report from start to stop this morning and couldn't wait for the next page. I rode Mexico top to bottom on my way to Ushuaia in 06, but never really experienced it. I will be heading back in May for two weeks and will do many less miles and more exploring. No hard plan, just smell the roses.
Thank you for one of the most enjoyable ride reports I have had the pleasure to read.
