East Coasters Unite

Haven't seen a thread yet for pontential East Coast participants, so I figured I would make one:sombrero:. I have not worked out the logistics of timing vs. leave accumulation for work, but I am pretty sure I am in for this rally along with my brother. The plan is to drive South from Maryland in my Tacoma with his KLR in the back or on a trailer until we're close to the border. He is on some of the KLR forums trying to see if there is interest to trailer multiple bikes and meeting in Texas to skip the long boring ride through the South. If there are any other East Coast moto guys interested in this option please let me know.

Are there any other East Coast folks thinking about doing the rally?

Hopefully for you guys the ferry concept will materialize, that will give you an easy way to return! I am sure there will be other teams from the East coast who will join.
And bring the KLR is a great idea!

We'll be driving down.

I'll probably stop for the night in Huntsville AL, Houston TX, and then on the US side of the border.
Cross border early in the AM, get out of border zone and stop in San Luis Potosi.
After that I'm not sure how fast/slow we'll move.

I know people all along the route, all the way down to Guatemala, so I'm catching up with friends on my stops.
You are welcome to join us.

Glad to see there is some interested east coasters on here. I'm staying tuned; we'd definitely be interested in getting a convoy together.

I'm planning on going as well. We were planning on doing a trip down there in January anyways and it seems like a good place to start.

We're coming from the New York area. Not sure how early / fast we'll go... would be happy to potentially go in a group, especially if there are any other families going with kids.

Hey Everyone,
My family(wife&twins)and I will be leaving from Charleston, WV. I would love to road trip down with a group. We don't have a set schedule yet, but our tentative plan is to make the kick off party and stay with the group from there.

I have not registered for the event yet, have been planning to attend to meet like minded folks and bring the family with for a change. I would be leaving pensacola Fl area around the 8th of december and mad dash it to the border area. Would be willing to meet up with any others intrested in convoying out of the border area.

Just updating post- We are officially registered for the event now and are intrested in convoying with anybody that wants to from the east coast.
