No problem. My boss spoke to the "man" at La Esperanza and he's going to hook her with distribution quantities. Price is great, and we don't expect to have trouble moving the product to the users.

I may have to give up the engineering business if this works out.

There's nothing like providing local grown shit to the numerous addicts around here. We expect it to be especially popular with BMW riders.

Before any of you call the DEA, we're talking about Coffee!

Let me know about Oaxaca. Just uploaded a new fuel map and the black bomb is running sweeeet! Need to put on some miles baby!

La MesILLA is the Guatemalan side of the Cd Cuauhtemoc CHIS border crossing.

The windiest stretch of highway Mex 200 is the 22 km part between Niltepec and Santo Domingo Zanatepec -- and hoo boy can it blow ! But at least it will be dry , the clouds off the mountain evaporate before your eyes.If it is windy be prepared to lean at 45 degrees while riding straight down the road.

At Tapachula you can get the aduana paperwork done at the terminal at the village of Viva Mexico which is the intersection of the Libramiento to Puerto Madero and that border crossing.If that is all you need you do not have to go farther to the actual border crossing.The other crossing is NE of Tapachula about 15 km and is a crowded mess in the vally bottom.
If you have to spend a night you can just go into Tapachula, fine hotels ,very nice atmoshere around the plaza not a border town at all although there lots of migrants from CA, .You can overnight even without the Mexican papers , it is just like the US side frontier zone idea.

Sometimes it's better to be the student than the teacher.

Is "Jimmy Ride" evolving into a euphemism??

Thanks for so promptly finding a place where I could take a leak. someday you'll get old and need to pee alot
Glad to see you got the woodshed cleaned up

Making the push

Thanks for all the route input. Going to put some of it to paper and fire off some more questions when I have a minute to process it all.

I have changed my flight and decided to make the push from PV to the border. It has been a frustrating experience but lessons learned. I will land in PV the evening of the 25 and be ready to get on the road sunrise on the 26. My papers expire on the 29 so I am assuming as long as I process on the 29th I am good?

Thanks again for all the help and hope my mis-steps have helped others. All this is part of the experience and will make me more dilligent about my paper work in the future.

Throughout the entire process I maintained a positive atittude while dealing with everyone and saved my venting/ranting for here. I renewed my attitude and faith in Mexico after a great day of surfing and beer drinking in Sayulita with some transplants from Guad. Another offer for a free place to crash when I return and sympathetic ears for my oversight in the import process.

Just slow the hell down and smile. We do things differently here in the lower 48 than they do in Alaska. SP never got that and we gave her a good spankin'. Further south in NA they do things a lot differently. Get used to it and drop the attitude. DWJ Donnie is a shining example of how to get along with our neighbors... read his stuff and look at his pix. If you are going to Mex only because you want to get f***ed that is exactly what you will get. You can stand on the deck of an aircraft carrier (or the AIDS ward) with a smug look and your mission accomplished banner. We arrogant nortenos will never unravel Mexico... it had an advanced civilization before we "white" guys got here/there. Spend more time reading and less time bleeding.
