Trice I was actually thinking about maple trees, their glorious colors and the song "Moonlight in Vermont"

A pasty white boy...........

The narcos actually haven't been doing that much beheading at all lately. They seem to be on some kind of hearts and minds campaign all around Mexico. The Federal Police were in the Laguna region hammering the place for about a year and a half. They just left a couple of weeks ago. Who knows if that means it is safe now or if it is about to erupt into violence, but I wouldn't worry about it too much.

I know some guys who work in Torreon and wont go out past dark, but other guys will catch a Santos Soccer game and stay out partying all nigh until the next morning. So who knows, but they have been there for years and none of them have been killed, so you should be OK for one night. It is not a great tourist town, but I did think of one redeeming quality. There is a Dairy Queen on Independencia, one of the only I know of in Northern Mexico. We sometimes get off the highway and pop in there on a hot summer day.

Sounds like I will miss you in DGO. I wont be back from the Holidays until the 6th. The Hotel Casa Blanca almost next door to Hotel Roma has good breakfast and they open early in the morning if you are trying to get on the road. La tostada located 2 blocks west has even better breakfast but I don't they open until 9:30 or 10:00.

Saludos and maybe we will catch you on the way back through.

Thanks for the intel on the go-ins-on around Coah. The word "trouble", used earlier, was really meant in contrast to the peacefulness of Parras that I have read about. Looks like a great place to take a pretty lady but not these.guys. We will probably do a little Jaguar hunting, couple shots and call it an early evening in Torreon. What's on the menu at the Rincon del Bife? What they known for? Sorry to miss ya this time. Trekking back through Mazatlan, PV, Guad and Zaca.

Seasons Greetings from us to you!

'Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the sierra,
all the motos were purring, anticipating vistas they soon would be seeing...

There was a gunfight around Guadalupe y Calvo, (west of parral on rt.24), not long ago and the area is definitely under the influence of cartel(s). I've ridden around those parts in the past few years with no problem. YMMV. My guess, is that since this incident, there is more of a police presence in the area, and it would not be as dangerous to travel there at present, but I'm just guessing really. I would definitely not be riding around after dark here, or just about anywhere in Mexico if for no other reason than the surplus of livestock on the roads. If you had more time, I'd recommend coming down further south and exploring the Sierra Gorda.
yo buddy , Britt and I are planning to be in Creel about 1/4/12 for a week long tour , what to join us ?

You've been in my backyard and you've seen my collection of BBQ pits, and I still am convinced I can't out cook you.

Best I can do is trade your steaks and mole for pulled pork and brisket and call it even
