Does that lead to one of El Chapo's mansions, or to a warehouse in Douglas AZ ?

Both !

The game plan is to meet up with inmate Rexbuck somewhere around Aquascalientes or Guadalajara and ride back north with him on his return from Jalisco. Roughly, Guadalajara (or Guanajuanto) to Huejuquila then backroads to Durango then Hwy 23 to Parral then up to Basachic then Banamichi likely with a stopover at Tom and Lynn's Hotel Los Arcos. From there back to Phoenix.

On the way down I am looking at riding 45 to 49D to Torreon onwards to 45 through Rio Grande. Anyone have any input on this routing down? Anyone have a better route or a "do not miss" section? I assume 4 to 5 days from Scottsdale and 7 days on the return.

I have been from Zacatecas to Phoenix several times and if you are trying to see a lot of country and make time you can make Phoenix to Nuevo Casa Grandes crossing at Douglas. I have done that a couple of time in one day...but I like to cross at Antelope Wells New Mexico.....however the mountains between Agua Prieta and Janos is a nice ride. Then go to San Buenaventura then 28 through Gomes Farias and on to Ciudad Cuahtemoc and on south to Hidalgo de Parral. That is another day and you spend a lot of time in the foot hills and it is cooler and nice ridding..... from Parral you can go south and then around Rodeo you can take 34 over to 49 and on into Zacatecas. From Zacatecas to Aguascalientes is only a couple of hours....I ran over there last weekend...but if you are going to meet up in Guadalajara I would recomend you take 23 south of Fresnillo to Guadalajara.
If your in the Fresnillo area give me a shout....maybe I could show you around a bit or ride with you a while.
Enjoy your ride!!!

Bob Loblaw....
That "el Chepo " stayed at the pricy Miramar Hotel in Mazatlan just proves what I have been telling folks all along:
A High priced hotel does not vouch for sterling quality of the clientele, it only winnows out the low - budget and attracts the big spenders doing the same things and if they are criminal their viciousness
gets expressed with more force down a longer chain of command.
There can be good and bad people anywhere.The appeal of fancy hotels is largely a question of stroking vanities and bragging rights and having a need to keep up appearances.

I will be sure to contact you if I get in your backyard. Would be my pleasure to make your acquaintance. At this moment I am on a flight to Phoenix so I will look closer at your route later tonight when I am in Arizona. I think you are on the money with the southerly portion but I'm undecided about the northern section. Not sure if I have had too much vino but i can't find highway 28 on my map. Your post and invitation is appreciated.

You go thinking like that and you'll end up somebody's watch list.

In Mexico the only people on the watch list are the politicians and they are watching each other. Like going on a fishing trip with two Baptists and a case of beer.

A guy I met in Tamaulipas who was taking photos with his camera and using a telescope for some add'l zoom.

Those pics turn out really cool, Kiko.
People do them even with an iPhone and adapters these days.
Drives the neighbors totalmente loco, aunque.

It has been mentioned on this thread many times that you are safer if you avoid illegal drugs in Mexico. Long story short, an American who hung out with the mala gente (wrong crowd) was murdered last week here. The perp has been 'captured' and is in jail. The police and the local cartel worked together on this since the perp tried to mask the crime as a cartel hit, hence the dicho:

Dime con quien andas y te dires quien eres.

And the people in the pueblo are pleased since the perp was a low life drug dealer, wife beater, and child abuser.
