Terrapinneck is coming through town tonight and I will pass the video on to him for editing. We'll see what the Drift captured.

Well, yeah. It could be those, too. But those don't fit with the prevarication theme I've got going here.

Rich. You shoulda been here. It was an adventure for a old flatlander like me.

Many different plans taking shape for the next Raid on Mexico. More street to Mazatlan. More dirt and basing out of Jalpan for a few days, taking advantage of motosierragorda's DS routes.

Whatever the boys pick , it will fun to plan.

But no matter what we do, the actual riding groups will be no more than 4-5. Just no way to keep a larger group together through the towns and certainly not the cities. I will be proposing we use alternative routes to pre-selected nightly destinations. Then if somebody doesn't make it they can catch up the next night or by taking a more direct route at some point during the day. Pretty good TelCel coverage through AT&T for updating each other on progress (or the lack thereof).


I checked with AT&T yesterday. Of my 80 minutes I only used 49. Of my 120 mb of data I only used 32. Well worth $30 x 2 = $60. And did I mention that Rick's Verizon coverage sucked?

At about this point in the trip, it dawns on Aaron that he is a bit taller than the average indigenous person.

Telcel can continue billing on your account for a total of 90 days so all the charges may not be in yet.

I discussed that specific possibility with AT&T yesterday. Sanjay assured me the billing was complete. We shall see. I am prepared to fight. ;)

I told you I could probably go in February and never heard back from you.

Looks like it was a blast.

Well, reading this report kept me late at the office on a Friday...thats saying something. Amazing trip, great photos and I'm sure stories to last a lifetime. Good on you for doing what we're all dreaming about (and living to tell the tale). See ya in the dirt!

lol. Compared to most reports here, ours was a lap around the kiddie pool but thanks. We enjoyed ourselves. Immensely.

Rick is dropping by tonight to pick up the microsd of the videos. He will attempt to edit them into watchable form and then we'll post those as our finale. I know I captured the road down to El Camino Terminado so I know we got something.

I also know I left the camera on all through lunch at Presa Zimapan and got a nice vid of nephew2 peeing off the side of a mountain. We'll have to wait and see how Rick edits those. ;)
