In any event, it would stink to have your ride give it up on any trip, but you have to have some idea of what you could do if it happened to you.

That was pretty much my plan, last January when the ignition module on my new Husky decided to take a dump in downtown Batopilas on a Saturday afternoon...I found a local on Sunday who took me and my wounded partner Teeds, back to Creel, where we hired another local to take us to Presidio...I'm still bummed about that...
