Take off Friday morning. And as every year the preparations are chaotic and last minute. The well organised and well prepared world traveler is a myth. Or at least I am not. Canada changed its entry requirements. Germans need an electronic visa now. Thank god it worked quite good. Received the approval yesterday. Still outstanding is the insurance for Canada and the US but I'm quite confident it will work.
Technical equipment check--done
Camping gear check--done
Riding gear check--ok it still fits
Also the bikes are ready as Craig in Vancouver told me. So...close to go.
We reach Vancouver Friday afternoon and the plan is to start immediately on Saturday. 9000 km to go, so no time to waste.
We changed the trip a bit due to the security issues in Mexico, especially in Guerrero. Normally I'm not to afraid about these things but as I could read in different forums it's unfortunately not a quite good idea to ride along the Mexican western coast at the moment. So we decided to cross Mexico north of Mexico City to ride along the Gulf of Mexico.
But before we have some km to go in the US. All along the coast. Great! I love deserts and tundras but it's good to have the sea again.
