Going to Honduras - Buy a bus?

Hey y'all. We're going to live at a farm outside of Tegulcigalpa, Honduras. We're going to be there for about 6 months (Oct to April), maybe longer, so we figured we'd bring our two beloved bullies (70 lbs each). It costs $1k for just one crate for a plane, so we're considering driving from Dubuque, IA. We would like to take our time and make this a little easier on ourselves since we have limited experience driving across country borders, so we're considering buying a bus. Anyone have experience with this type of thing?

Best Route Through Honduras

Short version: I suppose I'm asking for any advice on the best route through Honduras from Guatemala to Nicaragua. Any roads/towns/etc. to avoid? Any to seek out?

Long version: Hello everyone, my girlfriend and I have been overlanding south from Vancouver Island for just over 2 months. We're currently in the Yucatan, planning to cross into Belize in the next few days, and then into Guatemala about a week after that. After spending about two weeks in Guatemala, we want to book it through Hondruas to get to Nicaragua for Xmas.

Overlanding from Ft. Lauderdale,Fl to Nueva Gorgona,Panama

Hey DTA's! 2 USA retirees heading south and looking for some cool tent camping spots,explorations & people along the way. We anticipate crossing into Nueva Laredo early Feb.,2014 and have no agenda. Our10'x10' tent connects to the 2002 explorer sport we are driving so we can sleep off ground and still have a decent sized enclosed living area. I'm Sheila (54) & my partner is Ralph (61). If you are out there now or will be along our route, we would love to meet up and chill over some cerveza / mescal, convoy , whatever.

We Need Info On Honduras

Hi Travelers,

Due to all of the negative reports about crossing the lower border from El Salvador to Honduras, we are considering crossing the uper border at Copan. Does anyone have any information on this border crossing?

Do so would also require a lot more driving in Honduras, so we're also looking for information on driving that part of the country.

Thanks so much!
