Help Me Plan My Trip

2 Gringo's and 3 Amigo's Saturday, September 27, 2014

Am starting trip from Yuma, Arizona where Tom has taken my bike in his trailer. We will leave on 30 September 2014 at first light and cross into Mexico at San Luis  Rio Colorado which is only 45 minutes away. Plan to get to Hermasillo by sunset and see if we can camp there. After Tom has had his coffee we will stay on Highway 16 to Maycoba and then head south to our destination, Creel. We have a hotel there for 4 nights, which is where the BMW meet is.
This is where we will meet up with Mario, (El Salvador) Ban Ban (Guatemala) and Nelson ( El Salvador ) who were the instigators of this ride. After the meet we will proceed to Costa Rica. Have no real travel plans from here except to get Ban Ban back to Guatemala and then on to El Salvador, from there Tom and I will head to Costa Rica. We are both on BMWs 650 GS with no GPS, have a road map though, how hard can it be to read a map ?
All the guys are exceptional and very experienced riders whereas I am the total opposite, so hopefully I don't slow them down. Have not had much time to prepare and am missing a few items but oh well, but have a 2 man tent ,chair, cot, sleeping bag and some tools in my panniers. My clothing weighs 17 lbs. which is in my dry bag and my 35mm camera and Go Pro are in my tank bag.
