Gavin's comment: "Don't do that again."
WHEW!!! Im glad you came out of that in one piece. Scary shit.

Speaking of equipment. What kind of boots are you wearing?

After breaking my ankle in Flores my first goal was go get a good pair of boots before returning and getting my bike. I ended up with a pair of Alpinestars ( S-MX Plus Racing Boot). They certainly are a big improvement over what I had on when I went down.

Thanks for the great report on Zacatecas . If at all possible, Im going to try and spend a few days there on my way back.
