Today's Perfect Red, however, comes from Napa Valley, not Oaxaca Valley

Bob, you're a veritable National Treasure of information.

He's an interesting guy. Accomplished photog with conversational Spanish, an intrepid rider fond of exploring remote trails, one must spend time with to even begin to encounter his vast knowledge of Mexico and her people. Very understated kinda guy. Hope you get the chance to know him. Would like to know him better myself. Missed the opportunity to ride with him recently as I was doing the Sol a Sol thing with you and MR.

PS

He is, in the words of Trail Boss, "The World's Foremost Adventure Dentist"

Yes, he still is a practicing dentist in Austin, Texas

Rich and I rode with Milton this past March on every mile of the 2014 "Uncle's Around the Bend" - Rich, Milton, and I did both days of the Big Bend Superman Challenge

That event only out done by our ride together in the boonies on the "Unknown Ride" somewhere lost in the hinterland around Galeana, N.L., which seems so long ago

Dined last night at Justine's Brasserie on E. 5th. Very good French restaurant with a most interesting website. Justine is an artist, you see. My dinner companion was Alex LeFur, recently arrived in Austin from Santiago, Chile, by KLR. Interesting guy, Alex. We'll be doing more dirt riding in the coming weekends.

Anyway, Alex confirmed last night that Banjercito at the relatively new Mex-Guate border crossing near El Ceibo now takes credit cards for the TVIP deposit.

I'll cross-post on the Border Crossing thread.

Based upon that link alone, I'd line up for dibs on the content of the restaurant's dumpster before it got hauled off

45 minute wait for a table for two 9pm Saturday. No telling about the dumpster.

Well, that wait (on both counts) beats the average wait (by a factor of X3) any day at this Austin classic:

Her /menus site is reminiscent of the film Reefer Madness.
