PJ,
The Boquillas crossing info is good. Of course they still don't have a real date and there is no info about any kind of boat. Being only one year behind schedule is probably a new speed record for the Feds.

Also thought this was interesting :

Snake Dance

I came to Mexico to ride my motorcycle and snake dance with Salma. You have given away my last snake dance so I guess I will just have to ride on

The DRZ is safe and sound back at Casa SR. She was right where I left her on Saturday evening.




I couldn't find a motorcycle battery on Sunday, so I bought the smallest car battery I could find. It was still pretty darn heavy in the backpack after a few kilometers! Of course, I could have pulled the battery out of the Motorcycle on Saturday and just brought it back home and charged it, and saved $700 pesos too, but that's advanced thinking. Carrying the car battery all morning definitely gave me ample opportunity to think of the cost/benefit equation of having a backup kick starter.

We weren't overly methodical about trouble shooting. We drained the carb and cleaned (not changed) the spark plug at the same time, connected the battery and it fired right up.


Hijole!, more of this!


Got her up out of that box canyon and out of the mountains. Thanks for the help Miguel and Alejandro!


Most of the land below in the foreground is the Ranch that used to belong to John Wayne, when he was making westerns in DGO.

Well Done SR! I was curious to see how this would turn out. How far were you required to travel?

Jick, it was about 6K each way with a steep incline/decline at each end. Despite carrying a car battery, it was not a bad way to spend a day. Today is a Mexican Holiday.
