I'm a little late with this but, better late than never. I want to give a huge Attaboy and and and to this guy.



I had a little fall down about 300km south of Durango last winter and wasn't able to continue riding. Needed some help getting my bike to the border and SR offered to look after it. Had to arrange two haulers and even stored it in his warehouse for awhile. Fronted the money for the shippers. I know you guys know this but a great example of the quality of people in the ADV world.

Muchas gracias mi amigo.

Hi guys. Nice photo of Yours Truly in my natural habitat, at Tia Chonas with glass of vino tinto in hand and swapping ridiculous riding lies with a fellow ADV rider!

No big deal about the bike extraction. Just a few phone calls involved. In fact, sending F-800s to the border is getting to be a fairly routine procedure around here!.

RexBuck, I'm glad you got to see that the highway from Jesus Maria to Ruiz and that little hidden corner of Mexico. Hopefully next time it will be on bike!

Saludos Amigos!

Reporting from overcast Mazatlan, where we are seeing some weather from Hurricane Amanda.

Does anyone have any suggestions of a small beach town out on the Yucatan where I can get a cheap bungalow with wifi? The wifi is necessary as I work online.

I was going to camp out in Puerto Escondido for a good while longer, but there was a knifing down the street last night of a tourist and I'm not so interested in hanging around much longer. The dude had a 12 inch slash down his back, took 30 stitches to close it up.

The general consensus is that since it's low season here, money is tight so people are desperate. There's been two muggings in the last week as well.

So yeah, any suggestions of a neat little town to go hang out in for a couple months where I can get online to work would be fantastic. Thanks!

^ Give Mahahual a try

Subcomm, Termite, and I went there and hung out, scuba diving and checking out the local scene. It's way out of the way and, thankfully, way off the radar map that centers on Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Cozumel etc.

Looks fantastic! That may be the ticket, thank you! I'll start making my way to the Yucatan on Tuesday I expect. Any other suggestions (or things to see between here and there) are also most welcome.

Cheers!

edit: Oh and for reference as far as cost for 'cheap' - I've been staying in this bungalow for 250 pesos a night. Is that attainable on the Yucatan? Thanks!
