How is Francisco doing(Pueblo Viejo owner)? He lost his daughter(Yolanda) last year in an auto accident. I have been meaning to get down there again to visit with him and see if he recieved my care package.
He didn't happen to be listening to a Nat King Cole cd in spanish on a little cd player did he.

The plan right now is to be there again the end of October. I'll check on him and the family for you.

Thanks a lot, I am really curious to see if he recieved my package. You know how the mail can be in Mexico.
Are you going down for the Chabochis rally? I wished I could go, there is some of the best riding in the world in that area.
You guy's have fun and if you are ever in my area look me up.

Cheer!!!

I looked at the rally, but my plan is to slab west out of here to Tuscon to see friends, then join touring compadres and make the run into Mexico down along the Sea of Cortez to El Fuerte and Mazatlan. Then climb east up to Parral, through Creel and the roads around the canyon area, then N. Casas Grandes & out. About 11 days, with 2 days in Mazatlan listening to guitar on the beach.

I'll do another, hopefully better RR, but I don't think I'll ever be able to write as well as you do.

Next time you're through Dover, hit up Newick's for lobster for me. I grew up in Redding, Conn., went to UCONN and had a girlfriend at UNH.

If you are staying in Tucson for the night let me know. I can ride down and buy you a couple of ales. If not have fun and it sounds like a wonderful trip. I would go with you but I used up all my vacation time on a three week stroll through British Columbia in July. Check out my ride report if you get a chance.

I have nothing to report as exciting as hitting a black bear at 70 mph! I posted to your RR. Good job!

I think our meeting point is now Nogales but if its farther north I'll find you and buy YOU a couple of ales!.

Three times a week, like clockwork. To be honest, though, when I pass through at 0530 on the way to work, Newicks is probably just getting out on the water.

And on the way home, well, you know what I'm in a hurry to get home to...


Next time you're up this way, shoot me a note.


(And I know all about UNH girls. I married one. )

Bump, for some Mexico memories. That picture of GTO gives me that homesick feeling.
Here is another.

We sat outside at the little restaurant on the right and had a great meal. I need to go back there. Maybe in October after the Chabochis Rally.

In fact here is a pic of the resturant.



Great report Bob, I hope I get to meet you in Creel this year.

I'm onboard, Kenny. If you want to pass through San Antonio on the way in and/or out we can devise some routes you want to do. Whatever will get it done, I'm all for it. Mexico in October is fantastic, as you know!

Of course, that's me on the left and the legend on the right. I am a legend too, but only in my own mind. Anyone recognize who this is????

We've been asked not to post photos of the actual training sessions online, so there won't be any of those.

However, anyone who has been on the road from Creel to Batopilas knows what lurks, and thus the need for expert insights as provided by "The Man".



Or how about this one on the way to The Valley of the Monks:



As a result of all that our teacher threw at us, we were pretty zonked by the end of every day of off-road training.



Have you figured out who our "Professor" was??? Here is another shot, this time of him sitting on his Ural side-car rig (which he drove to Batopilas!):



Thats his Ural with a sidecar that he's had to ride since overcoming a serious accident. His determination and drive were as much an inspiration to us all as was the fantastic level of training he provided us all. We definitely came away far better off - and on - road riders that before we arrived in Creel.

Any guesses?
