Snowrider to Mexico

I'll come back to this thread and post stuff if/when I get a chance.

I'm packing right now, and I leave for Mexico in the morning. Morning for me being around noon or so.
I don't know why I'm going to Mexico now, I had all winter to enjoy it properly. My spanish is terrible. I just got a map of Mexico a couple days ago. I have no idea what I'm doing.
I know I'm crossing the border at El Paso, and I will spend 4 days in Juarez helping a group of volunteers build a house.
Then, south, probably to the bottom, I guess. A little further in than last year (http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=83480) anyway.

Oh yeah and I'm a lot poorer now so there'll be a lot more camping and peanut butter.


Later.

The only report I've ever read of yours was your trip to Alaska (the first thread I ever read here, btw.) After I read that report I bought my DR650. Can't wait to read this one.

Looking forwad to new pics of you playing your guitar with the cool custom amp in Mexico. You'll have to really pull the stops out to beat your awesome AK trip report.

I found your Alaska report, and this site, while researching my DR purchase. Top notch report!! You are an adventurer!
Good luck, be safe and keep us posted.

Sure, its right here:

Probably one of the top 10 ride reports on this site, although there are tons of great ones.

I'm sure he is responsible for at least a few people buying DR's. In fact, It sure helped me decide on my new bike!!!
