That'd be great. find em!

I've met a few people who rode to Panama either on bike or to surf during the 70s. Sounds like the road was pretty rough but quite passable.

I'm sure that the boys of 1947 do the same as us-- only show the worst 5 minutes of a trip ignoring the paved superhighway

We brought along two of my dad's brothers, "for protection," except I'm pretty sure their motivation was to get laid in each country- one uncle was 18 and had already joined the Marines, and the other uncle was 22 and just out of the Navy. We picked up my grandfather in Mexico City. He was 50- only a few years older than I am, now- and he was our guide, since he was a traveling salesman all through Central America, and knew the way.

Vehicle: all-wheel-drive International Travelall pulling a 20 foot trailer.
