Looking for company

I am planning a late living from NYC, after Thanksgiving Day, to South America.
Is there anyone else , from north east, that is going south about the same time ??
My plan is to take the fast Highway all the way south, to escape the cold then head west thru Louisiana and Texas.
I am not in the rush and unless is raining ?!?!, I plan to use a slipping bag most of the time.

Well don't slide out of that slipping bag

Would love to hear your plans thru Central and South America. Do you ever go to the Ear Inn on Tuesdays? Where are you in the city?

Ride safe...

Will try not to.
So far I have no specific plans. Just start the bike and go. I spent the last few weeks reading all the posts and I am more lost then ever.
I will play by ear.
I live in Clifton, out of the City. At list for another two weeks.
I have no idea where is Ear Inn and why Tuesday ???
Thanks

Thank you for the heads up. I camp all winter in the Adirondack. The heat is that I fear most. I am still waiting to close on a property. The moment is done , I will be on the road.
Thanks for the pics. I am looking forward.

Have a safe trip.
ps. nice bike and looks fully equipped.

Dam shmula, nice photo.
We stopped at the SAME spot on the valley of the gods road.
I use this as my wallpaper at work. Look familiar?
