Eek Copper Canyon in November !

Due to popular demand, I feel thats its time to create the Ride Report of all Ride Reports...



I recommend that we take this thing slowly and methodically--adding pictures and exaggerations in an organized fashion...(we must of course, figure out how the hell to re-size our images; right LoneRider?)

Accordingly, I start at the beginning...

In this picture you will find a rather usual sight-- Antware looking dumbfounded and sh$t-faced, staring blankly into the camera...

oh wait, this isn't the beginning, its the end...I guess I should give the poor chap some credit -- he's just assisted Mack and others in dragging Fist's tattered, sorry-ass, water-logged GS half way across the country back to where we started this journey... at the Three Palms hotel in Presidio, TX... (but we'll get to that later)...

Introductions....

Now that we've met Antware, its time to continue our journey and meet two more of our players - hgulledge & hardy ....



Only hours after crossing the Mexican border through the towns of Presidio (US) & Ojinaga (MX), these two bad-ass muthas had just held up a road construction crew during which they beat up three union workers and as an act of total humiliation, stole their government issued reflector vests... Heartless bastards....

I shall call this place ... HardyWorld!

Having left three government workers crying and bleeding, Hardy decided to take a look around...

Apparently Hardy was unhappy with what he saw-- subsequently, he proceeded to inform "Mother Mexico" of his dissatisfaction by urinating all over her....

"Watch how far down I can piss," hardy explained....

Can I see some ID ?

The crew was now nearly complete....
Antware, IronDawg, hgulledge, Hardy, Mack, and Fist

We had all made it to Creel, MX -- before sunset...
The fact that we had gone this far in one day is uniquely important....

You see, much of our local information about Mexico and Copper Canyon had come from tourguides of the famous "Pancho Villa" outfit (forgive my spelling if its wrong..). These informed individuals told us that it would be impossible for us to leave Presidio, cross the border, and make it all the way to Creel in one day...

So,
Rule #1 - Never believe any Pancho Villa tourguide.

Here's a shot of Hal and Hardy interrogating GS Adven just hours after his late night arrival into the town of Creel...

Assembled in Creel

Having rested comfortably (despite the incessant noises of foot-powered airpumps and snoring bastards) and eaten breakfast, we assembled in the town square of Creel to make ATM withdrawls and gather route advice to Batopilas...

Sunday parade in Creel

Upon entering the town square, we were informed by the local police to make way for the parade...

I assume it occurs every Sunday, but nevertheless, this public prayer and town-walk was a very cool experience for us outsiders....

.....on the road to Creel, John prepares his on board camera (more on gear geeks later) while Will, Mack & Hardy play rock, paper, scissors, to see who gets to use the 'roid cream first

.....from the on going theme you might be led to believe that our man Hardy had a bladder problem.............



...........but that is not the case, this conquistador just didn't bring enough flags to claim his new kingdom so he marked it in the only way he knew how.

He later assured us that this is quite the norm in Texas......as long as your names not Ozzie Osborne, and the object your pissing on isn't The Alamo.

....here we see the trusty steeds corralled up outside the Chateau KOA in Creel, while the tight bastards are crammed inside like sardines.




One double bed, two sets of bunks, 6 macho ADVRiders.

"So IronDawg, would you like to share the double with Mack"?

".......eeeerrrrrr no, I'll sleep on the floor"

............and so another photo-op slipped through our fingers.

What? No mention of the fact, that the idiot that is me, got out of Austin so late that I had to drive all night, only arriving into Presidio at 4:30am! And that, no one was quite sure who this same idiot, sleeping in the front seat of his truck was, until they finally woke me up at 6:45am!

I did get lot's of sympathy, until GS Adventure arrived late into Creel, with stories of Kamikaze deer bouncing off his panniers in the dark, and of spending the rest of the night in a gas station, waiting for daylight, so as not to be D.O.A. on day one of the trip!

Fist, Since we had to endure her nightly, I think you should introduce the nocturnal, huffing, gasping, panting girl, known as Elvira!

IronDawg, Pics? Where are my pics?
