Southward Bound

Hi everyone. My wife (Tricia) and I would like to introduce ourselves. We're an early retired couple, in our late 50's, just about to set out on our dream cruise. We've sailed about 20 or 30 thousand miles up and down the west coast of Canada and Southeast Alaska over the last three decades and are now ready to head out of the Juan de Fuca strait and turn left for the first time. We glady suffer from "horizon fever" and think maybe this will be a cure. We've sailed in Mexico with friends on their boat before, but have never taken our own boat down. We're planning a couple of seasons in the Sea of Cortez, then probably down to Central America and who knows where from there. Could be out for a couple of years, could be a decade or more...
We have a Kelly-Peterson 46 named Falcon VII on which we've lived for the past three years here in Victoria, B.C. Canada. We're into cruising slowly, poking about here and there and getting to know the locals, but that doesn't mean we don't like to get our boat sailing fast once in a while, especially if there's another boat in sight.
We'd love to hear from other cruisers who are planning to be down in Mexico or are already there.
