You won't make it through mexico with the current gas shortages
Have friends who are all over Mexico right now, gas shortages are a pain but you can still travel around... and can certainly get through MX

No gas shortage in Baja since we get our gas trucked in and not pipelined :tbow:

the ferry seems to be really sporadic with no real schedule. Various internet reports have it running as of 2017 but then not running after that, with no new updates. There are several roll on / roll off services that seem like they can do the trip, but again last updates don't seem to be that recent

at this point I kinda figure I'll say fuck it, drive down to Panama at my own pace (or try to ship from Guatamala since Nic and Honduras are pretty unsafe right now) and if all else fails just drive back up to Texas


Makes the most sense to me. That's why I was asking. I know you can get across it obviously but since you cant drive over rhat area, I was asking how he was planning on doing it. Lol. I'm sure I am overthinking it as well but I wouldn't want to ride through a few areas of the trip either.
