Hope you get a full house for those classes.
Thanks MikeMike. We are just the hosts for the class, not the sponsors. We did have some input into the no-class room stuff. There will be quite a few interactive class assignments involving the locals from going to the market to buy certain items, visiting the city hall and interacting with the local kids.

Insurance

In Presidio tonight. Need Mexican insurance for crossing border tomorrow into Mexico. Can't find a vender on USA. Is there a insurance office close to the Mexican imigration offices?

Depends where you are crossing into Mexico.
If it is from Texas, give yourself a month.
PM me if you want a general idea illustrated ride guide in PDF format to introduce you to my neck of the woods here (Central Veracruz and extreme eastern Puebla).
Whatever you do, stay off the Mex #180 coast highway as much as you can. You don't need it and you'll have way more fun.
Bring your camera, an appetite, and thirst.

Can't buy on line, no printer avaiable at this time. Prefer to buy in person anyway. Still need info.

Presidio is not exactly a metropolis and there sure won't be much open on Sunday.

Hah! Bots... Yes, in order. Mig on left and Jim on right in first photo, and Schizz in second photo. It was great to hook up, and put 2 of those names to faces myself today. Looks like a great crew to go with on a ride around Mexico.

IThe whole country is beautiful, so depending on your interests, (archaeology, museums, scenery, nightlife, chicas, cerveza?), you can pick your own route. BTW, you can find scenery, cervezas, and chicas just about anywhere in the country. I personally like the roads with lots of curves on the maps. I prefer the interior and the west coast mostly for its more reliable weather. My fav towns are Zacatecas, Alamos, (Sonora), Morelia, San Miguel de Allende, Oaxaca, Puebla, San Cristobal de las Casas, Puerto Escondido, Mulege, (BCS), Puerto Escondido, Tlacotalpan, Durango, and so many more. There are a couple of ride reports in my sig line you can check out for pics and info. I've never had any problem with safety, and Mexicans are generally very friendly and giving people. YMMV. Keep your wits about you as you should wherever you travel.

Our man Schizzman during our Pemex stop on the Grand Funk Railroad, aka Mex 57D.

Left Saltillo in a dense fog (nature kind, not mental kind).

Arrived here to find Rocky Mountain Oyster parked at Posada de las Monjas. amazing!
