Panama Bound

Tonight we are in Texan Bay, Guatemala. The goal is to get checked out of Guatemala (obtain a Zarpe [international clearance] from the Port Captain and Immigration officer) tomorrow AM and head for the Honduras Bay Islands. Once in Honduras we are hoping for a weather window (opportunity) to head toward Nicaragua with the goal being 12 degrees North latitude. Points south of twelve degrees North represent the "safe zone" from tropical storms and hurricanes.

It's a tough time to make the trip as Hurricane season officially started in June and peaks in September. We only need two good days of weather so the odds are it will be safer than driving to work for most of our friends...

If the weather doesn't cooperate then we'll race back to the Rio Dulce for protection from any storms.
