I've got a great idea for you. Instead of going west past Hawaii and through the Suez to get to get to Mexico and Central America, you could just heads south. It's true you'd have to go past California, but don't worry, it seems the people there don't pay any attention to what you say anyway.
Yeah that's what I was planning on. I think people are getting the wrong idea of what I was suggesting. I'm not planning a trans-pacific trip circumnavigating the earth to get to Mexico. It's directly due south of Oregon!
Thanks for the help!
