Jimmex, if we ever encounter one another on a commercial flight to Mexico we should just act like two Baptists in a package store. If you know what I mean (and I think you do).

For anyone in Mexico, just a heads up, tomorrow is a national holiday.
Benito Juarez Day.
Don't get me started...

Craneguy, calling me old will only get you a blank stare. Kind of like the one you were wearing during THAT part of your recent medical. LOL!

Normal? Falling maybe? Losing stuff, not so much... especially your glasses. You sure they aren't on your head? Was that picture taken at the Nuevo Rosita on the Malecon? My hotel choice in PV since 1975. An old classic, well located and affordable.

I wish I was on the Malecon in PV. Just about one of my favorite places to spend time.

Just finished up hosting the one week Spanish class yesterday. Last night we were full with mountain bikers here for the Rio Sonora MTB Classic. I'm tired. Maybe I'll get to ride a bit tomorrow and recharge

Great shot Schizz.

Trice I hope that none of my Oregon friends see this. You will have to take Oregon off of your "safe to ride" list. They take this stuff very seriously up there.

The source of that pic, the WTF Picture Thread here on ADV, is an open source library of the bizarre and the wacky.

It is fast catching Toxic Britney for #1 in popularity on the site
