Thanks for the hard work.
I found it funny when the few roads that did exist in the Garmin basemap would show the road I was on be a few miles east of where I really was

About the locals, I think they assume everyone on two wheels is Ryan Dungey when they give time estimates. I also learned that when the locals tell you it is possible to get a cell phone signal at the top of the canyon they must really be wondering if I'm dumb enough to believe them. Tury (who is from Chihuahua city) and I spent a day trying to get a signal stopping every 2 miles to check our phones... I see people walking around with cell phones so they must work, right?
