Name South America Tip to Tip

Not sure whether to drive or take buses. I am a female, that alone poses a lot of risks of being attacked. I am learning Spanish and martial arts, but don't want to take a gun. I really just want to live on the continent for a few months, enjoy simple local food and sleep in a tent or a car, or even in a cave. I am in good shape, did half the US and France, but need help with mountains that need climbing.
I am 33 yo, looking for any age group to join. In all pragmatism, having a male in a group will be great. Spanish speaking natives are treasure.

Olga Since I could not collect a group through here, I decided to alter my plans and go on my own. I am flying to Mexico on February 7th and will work my way South from there.

Olga Hi Guys, I am having hard time gathering a group here. I sent all the interested troopers a message with my private contact info. I am leaving the US regardless most likely first week of February. Or sooner. If I can't gather enough people for this trip, I will go to Mexico alone and work my way South while getting local jobs. So the trip will take longer. I might encounter some of you during that time for parts of my route. Keep me posted on what you all think!

Olga Well, the opportunity just presented itself to live rent free at my current location, so I will have to postpone the trip till at least the end of the year.

Olga Thank you all for replying. I am very close to my goal, but will know for sure at the end of October. I know, it's cutting very close to the travel time and it may have to be delayed a little. I lived in Costa Rica for 3 months in absolute poverty, so I know how to survive. I say we take buses and stay in hostels to save money. We buy local groceries and cook on fire. If anyone of you needs modern amenities, it is not in my personal budget, but we get reunited after you spend a night in a hotel to get back on the road.

Olga Thank you. I would love to see Central America too. I have not had any solid enough responses on here, so I am very flexible. Keep in touch, maybe our paths will cross.
