Wow Alpiner , What a coincidence .I must read your rr on the ride , but this little installment is the kicker because two weeks ago I too did the transect of the Sierra M Occidental and spent a night in Jesus Maria. Quite !!!!!! the intersting road and only 22km of reasonable gravel left which should be history in a year or two or...? as the construction crews are staedily transforming theat last bit of gravel to new asphalt road. Should a great ride for anyone on any kind of bike.

By the looks of the electric wiring we might have used the same hotel room ha ha or ja jajajajaj=)

Funny timing for the story above and your own stay there. Great tacos in Jesus Maria, Nayarit! Hope you enjoyed your stay, too!

So a week ago Saturday I went from Maria del Oro (30 K East of Tepic) North around the lake and ended up at Frasnillo. Via Huejuquilla
Where is the road to the coast? further North? or did I cross it?

Not sure?

Wow, new to this board. Was sent here from "toytowngermany" and I must say this thread is really all over the place regarding Safety in Mexico.

A little history of me, I was born in Fl, lived in PA, GA, AL, OH and Germany. I have been through bad parts of the US and I have ALWAYS wanted to see Mexico. Would I go? NO.

It is a damn shame too... I would love to see it, but from all the reports that we see and hear about it is just plain madness there. Remember this is my opinion, forwhatever reasons I have.

I know that I could get killed at anytime doing anything. But, from all the reading I have done, it just doesn't seem like a safe place to go.

Now, there are members that are getting their fingers ready to "bombard" me with info or dislikes. No problem, The fact is the drug cartel in Mexico is crazy. 2 years ago or so, I really was intersted in going, started doing my research and looking at news articles, videos and probeing into the situations there. I even read one article where a mature mexican man lived in the states and called his mother and told her to pack her stuff and get out of there. I also read something about a business owner(native mexican) was given the option to "pay" the drug heads in the area or have her shop basically destroyed. That my friends doesn't sound safe even for the locals.

It is unfair that such a beautiful country would be run by drug cartels. The people in Mexico need to "Take back their country" if they want tourism to increase. It is hurting all the honest people in the country.

OK.. be nice boys!

Welcome to the forum.

The only thing I'm surprised about in your post is the fact that your inmate name hasn't been claimed before.
