I really hope he makes it. Years ago I heard that traveling through Central America was dangerous due to wayside bandits. At that time not all of the Pan American Highway was paved through there. I personally wouldn't even ride through Mexico, but I guess I am chicken. Mexico has the second highest level of kidnappings for ransom in the world after Colombia. I suggest getting an arrangement with a "Coyote" to post bail for you in Mexico, and make friends with the Federales. Too bad you can't carry a full auto Uzi with you.
