Tampico will have to wait. Won't get closer than Cd. Vic.

Maybe a coast run later?

I'm dying to get out and do some riding. It just seems like every week has thrown a new challenge at me that has to be overcome.

But there will be some trips later this year, come hell or high water, unless we have a full-scale war going on around Tampico. And I don't expect that.

In fact, I was looking at today's Mission paper and things were relatively peaceful, although someone took a shot at a soldier's barracks near Tampico with a rifle-fired grenade. No serious injuries, they say.

You da man!

Now it's a simple matter of listening for the "noise" reports to determine if we are going to cross and sleep or sleep and cross.
With these waypoints though, our confidence is enhanced and chances are increased we cross first late on the 14th.

Thanks again buddy, I owe YOU a beer.
Question is, will you be there to collect?

If you are here on Friday, I expect to collect. For sure!

The only question is whether I ride north or south on Saturday. That's the same weekend as Bugscuffle, and I planned to ride up to near San Antonio that day.

This is the stuff that always comes up. Conflicting events.

I've re-encountered the siren call of Mexico as in the past but this time it's
cruelly amplified by the love of motorcycling. Almost toxic in that,
more and more, my mind journeys to that place in the Sierra Gorda - to
converting it into a hostel, waving goodbye to a society
that has never penetrated my heart as Mexico does. Returning to fitness
and Spanish language studies in earnest - with renewed purpose. From the
ashpile of a failed marriage rises a renewed life.

So, is Mexico safe? Hell, life ain't safe - not if you attempt to live it. And
that's all it'll ever be good for - living it. As the lady said,"Life is either a
daring adventure or nothing. Security does not exist in nature, nor do the
children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in
the long run than exposure." -Helen Keller


WOW! That's Fucking beautiful!
And a great inspiration for our impending ride south.

Kate del Castillo loves Mole Negro Oaxaqueño:

We'll tripe my guacamole baby just a one more time

Why don't we get drunk ... and screw?

-Jimmy Buffett-


Trivia: I've seen Little Feat open for Buffett once or twice, and not too long ago I saw a Buffett concert and was wondering who the new member of the Coral Reefer Band was until they started to play Dixie Chicken. It was Bill Payne - the keyboardist for Little Feat.

Obviously a desperate woman willing to do anything for money.

Be nice now. I will have to say that she was a real cutie.

And wearing a thong, too.

I'll have a heart attack just thinking about it.

We need to send 'em over to Boys Town. On a busy night you could find a Kate del Castillo look alike without too much trouble ... thong optional.

Yep, somebody's gonna be hittin' sumpin' every time that line's used! (or)

More Trivia: Bill wrote "Tripe Face Boogie" with Richie Hayward who is fighting liver cancer at this time.

Sorry 'bout that. Totally uncalled for.
