I'm NOT a big fan of having to turn around and backtrack hoping that the guy behind you didn't make the same error and you meet him coming the other way.

That is exactly what happened to us in '06, backtracking out of a wrong turn and hit another 8-truck head on. When I got in a few hours later it had knocked out the hydraulics to the steering and power to the Parker pumper and intercom. If only they had been looking at the course notes.....

Not an actual Pemex but multiple places. The easiest & quickest is as soon as you drop into town on the right a few feet after the 1st speed bump next to the Tecate sign

I just finished tweaking the final GPS files. NORRA should get them posted tomorrow. The Garmin file has 19 tracks, with no more than 500 points per track. The "secret" section is not in the GPS file.

The roadbooks were completed Tuesday and have already gone to the printer. I don't know if they are printing them as one book per day, or one huge roadbook covering all 4 days. There are no rolls this year. Maybe next year. So, bring your tape again. There was talk of using slightly thinner paper, though I don't know what will ACTUALLY be used.

We were extra careful with the secret section roadbook. It has extra entries to help make sure nobody gets lost. I think most could follow it just fine even without an odometer. I threw in a few compass headings just for fun, so you might actually be able to use your GPS digital compass function (true North) if you want to play around, though you shouldn't really need it.
