Hi!

You may have seen that I am planning a trip from Toronto to Mexico City during summer 2020 in my most recent post. I am still in the intro part of my research and reading on Hitchhiking and all that I need to know. I'm going to be posting all around the forums to gain information and share experiences/information, but wanted to stay in contact with a few individuals that have been to Mexico before and not on a resort or whatnot. The purpose of this would be so I can prepare and learn from ya'll as it seems that many of you have had incredible experiences. I'd like to be able to stay in contact, share experiences, advice/tips, maybe learn some Spanish if possible, and of course create new friendships :)!

I am so intrigued by this community and am glad to have the chance to take part! Thanks again!

Omar

Para empezar, deberías leer Alvar Nuñez Cabeza de Vaca en el español original: fue el turista blanco original en México

I have taken 7 trips though Mexico over the years. Mostly by bicycle. And I love Mexico outside the resort areas. I have only been hitch hiking very little in Mexico, but you might be able to get a small impression about the roads running through Mexico if you take a look at some of the photos I have posted from my various cycling trips around this amazing country: Cycling on the roof of Mexico. - http://travellingclaus.com/cycling-roof-mexico/

Mexico is an awesome and vibrant country with so much to do. I've been twice in the past 2 years, Yucatan and Mexico City.

I'd be glad to help and maybe even join if you need a road buddy. I haven't hitchhiked there but the people are very friendly if you can speak enough spanish to get your point across. If all else fails you can always catch a bus outta town for pretty cheap.

I did get shaken down by the cops for having a beer in public in Mexico City but that was my own dumb fault for not paying attention and speaking spanish to them trying to get out of it. LOL

Would you say Hitchhiking from Toronto, Canada through the US to Mexico City is possible if I don't speak any Spanish at all?
Also, are you from around Mexico? It would be nice if I could meet individuals and build friendships along the way.

I'm also curious about this, however, I do speak Spanish.
Deaf people don't speak and they get by alright, you should be ok.
I'd do it myself, but my primary concern is strays attacking my dog.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $100.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

Beautiful day to be alive and listen to the birds chirp, remembering to be grateful for what we have and not worry about what we have not.
Healthy in PDX. Back here after years to keep track of those bugging out and to check in on those still on the road.
Just found out my neighbor died. One day I'm helping him change his starter, the next he's gone. Just walked around inside his house. That would be the first time I have smelled death. The eeriest though was that the UPS guy still left him a package. PS He was a big John Wayne fan!! RIP Rick!

Twin cities folks, anybody looking to go out, maintain a respectable distance, and explore something this Friday night?
Committed phone memory to two of these guys albums just last night, after not listening to them for years. Found out today that one of em died just two days prior.
They fathered ebm in 1981 -the same genre of industrial that NIN brought to the mainstream over 10 years later.

Dude thinks he's gonna "make a deal" with the virus.

It's like a virtual pact with *Satan*.👹 Maybe if he sacrifices all the helpless ones to the thing, the devil will just let him be? Let him keep his status, his presidency, his supporters?
