Two of us planned a trek into Mexico. We just got home yesterday evening and I had over 12GB worth of photos and video to sort and edit. The video... jaja... not even started.

Two of us planned the trek. Three of us went on this adventure. Our stallions were six fifties. Nearly 150 combined horsepower.

We kicked ass on this ride because we are bad mother f*ckers. We did what they told us not to. We camped with coyotes howling outside our tents. We plucked cactus thorns from our boots and tires.

Here be Richard on his seisciento cincuenta caballo-




oh wait... thats just a friendly Mexican.

Here is Richard.

And Don Quixote himself. Clueless as ever. Slow and steady. He fought off killer cactus windmills with a hunting knife.

Night number one brought us to McAllen,Tx. 10 hours for Jim and I. Richard, although he lives in Houston, drove down from around Kansas City after visiting the in-laws for the holidays. 18 hours in the car for him.



Day two. We run all the way down to the border.




"You SOBs are slowing me down... don't you know your bank can get you the money before hand?!?"


Not too late...


But now it is. LOCK AND LOAD!


Bienvenidos a Mexico!

Back from a quick commercial break to go pay the 'lectricity bill.

I'll give some details on getting across the border. GO AS FAST AS POSSIBLE! Make an S-curve so the bullets miss your head.
Thats the bullshit for all the bullshitters sitting at home right now.

The truth for those who are wanting to get going south, do as follows.

I highly recommend getting your vehicle permit online. It only costs about $20 more to do it that way, but should save you a good amount of time.

On the flip side to that, you must still get your tourist permit (visa) which costs $230. That's pesos. But Jim reckoned it was $230 bucks. Poor Don Quixote.

This process may only hold true for the Hidalgo crossing.
1)Go to the Migration counter, give em your passport and they give you form.
2)Fill out paper.
3)Have copies made at next window.
4) Go to Banjercito window and pay your dues.
5) Go back to Migration window and have passport stamped. "Bye-Bye. Vaya con dios!"

Being cute obviously helps you with the process.

Welcome to Mehico.

Yes. Welcome to Mexico. The land of drug runners, angry Mexicans who hate Americans. The land of burros and goats on the road sides. Horse and ass drawn buggies holding up traffic. A place of crazy drivers. A place where you can pass cars in a curve, or a line of cars slowing for topes. You can just about do what you like with little restriction. Yes. This is Mexico.

T-I-M. This is Mexico.

Ok, well the first sentence can only possibly true. I have never met so many friendly people in my life. In this state, coming up on a car while blasting down a dirt road only gets you a dirty face and a bit of aggravation. In Mexico, everyone pulled over to let us pass. Most even gave a friendly honk and a definate wave. T-I-M.



Our first day in Mexico was great. The maps dont match the roads worth a crap... so our navigation was left up to richard and his E132 GPS mapset... he'll give you a speil on that later


Has your wife ever wondered where your winter time oranges come from? Give me her number and I will explain in great detail.





We even had a great lunch.




We had no clue exactly what the meat was, but who the hell cares? It was red meat, char broiled to perfection. Add a little lime and a tortilla and its bliss.





Oh yeah. Bring it on, Bitches.
