Mexiquillo was like a MASH unit for ATVs

Literally

So many wrenches and machines propped up, and even more on trailers



It seemed to me that suspensions were a common victim

Not sure how many readers of this ride report have ATVs and if they put them through stuff that derails them from time to time, but if owning one of these things means having to do this much to them to keep them going, I'll stick with motos, thanks

4077th MASH for ATVs

While SR and I fed our faces here in the mess tent of the Sierra Madre 4077th,



There were tons of soldiers hard at work on their jeeps:









oooops, how did she get in here?

Let's Talk Morning Coffee in Mexico

In the MASH tent, every rider, especially the Mexican riders, go for the HUGE POT of great coffee, and.....wait! There is no coffee pot!

There is a huge igloo dealio of very hot water, and........Néscafe

Not to worry - I've learned to love the stuff, I'm in it only for massive amounts of caffeine anyway

Not so our hero, SR - a coffee aficianado

He brought along **gasp**

Starbucks VIA instant coffee tube thingies



Very tasty if I may say so

I will hit a coffee pot in México like a woodpecker on crack hitting a tree, so I have 6 or 7 cups MINIMUM everyday down there

Fresh air, a new day, and a coffee buzz heard 'round the world. That's how I roll

This is our man Miguel, again - you met him earlier.

His vest is the "official" vest of the staff for the ride

As mentioned, Miguel was chase group guy (rides a moto, not an ATV), the guy who was out almost to midnight the night before this photo was taken. He looks pretty good, right?

Well, look again in the photo - see the blue Igloo cooler there on the right?

That's the "cooler" with the boiling water. Next to it are the jars of Néscafe and a cup with spoons in it. YOU choose how much Néscafe suits your taste

Having been up so late, Miguel fills a cup almost to the brim with Néscafe granules, and adds just a touch of hot water, and downs it

That's how he rolls in the Sierra Madre after long nights looking after others

Give It The Gas



There is a Pemex (Mexican gas station) in Mexiquillo, and some motos/ATVs went there, but also, just as many brought their own gas and filled/refilled various containers, in whatever shape and form they came in.



Even Coke bottles strapped to motorcycles will work!

Nescafe......ubiquitous in Mexico......several spoons of the stuff and it tastes like coffee.

Some outback places make coffee with a large cotton cone as a filter in a coffee pot like the cowboys of yore:



As the day goes on, more grounds and boiling water are added to the existing grounds... yumm !!

Best Americano I EVER had was at a street stall in Patzcuaro.....14 year-old barristo was a master.


Nescafe is a whole lot better than Squirt for desayunos

Walter Bishop on the 2013 Ruta:

4TA. ATV RUTA DURANGO-MAZATLÁN 2013.


Es impresionante la presencia de la Sierra Madre Occidental en Durango, sus magníficos bosques, montañas y quebradas son un verdadero tesoro que quizá no hemos valorado a plenitud y las oportunidades que ésta nos brinda aun no rinden resultados pero no tardarán mucho.

Hace cuatro años que ideamos e iniciamos con la Atv Ruta Durango Mazatlán, ya que es un deporte extremo muy popular que va en ascenso, en principio lo llevamos a cabo casi solo para que no se nos adelantara un grupo de otro estado y para poder tener el orgullo que la Ruta fuera de Durango por lo que hicimos la primera invitación en el 2010 a la cual acudieron 35 pilotos, en ese tiempo las cosas en el país no estaban particularmente claras y afectó en algo el desarrollo del evento, pero tuvimos saldo blanco.

Luego ya en el 2011 se tuvieron 40 pilotos, en el 2012 fueron el doble alcanzando una participación de 80 pilotos y este año del 2013 con un desdoblamiento increíble se reunieron más de 280 cuatrinautas entre motos enduro, cuatrimotos y racers. Ahora logramos juntar entre el Staff de apoyo en diferentes especialidades y los participantes a más de 320 personas en movimiento en las dos etapas de las cuales consta el evento.

El perfil de los participantes de esta travesía son un 98% hombres desde 15 a más de 60 años, en su mayoría empresarios y comerciantes con un nivel socioeconómico medio y alto por su gran capacidad de compra quienes son de gran interés para Durango, el estado anfitrión, ya que son personas importantes en sus comunidades donde su opinión tiene peso y la recomendación que pueden dar de Durango es primordial.

En esta ocasión vinieron pilotos de Chihuahua, Torreón, Monterrey, Guadalajara, Saltillo, Mazatlán, Culiacán, Gómez Palacio, Texas, Canadá y mismo Durango, lo cual demuestra el nivel de penetración en el mercado que la ruta está logrando donde ya se le conoce por ser la ruta más remota y extrema de México, en este tipo.

Es también importante señalar que este evento produce en tan solo 3 días una derrama económica considerable de arriba del 1.5mdp, en compra de gasolina, alimentos, hospedaje, transporte, traslados, y llega de manera directa a las comunidades de la sierra.

Este año al igual que el pasado se realizó la salida frente a la Catedral, nos acompañaron el Ing. Maximiliano Silerio Díaz del Comité Organizador de los Festejos de Aniversario de la Ciudad 450, la Lic. Elvira Silerio de la Secretaría de Turismo del Estado de Durango y otros distinguidos invitados que vivieron el increíble grado de agitación que se genera al llegarse la hora indicada en la que la aceleración de los vehículos y la expectación general del evento alcanzan su máximo al dar el banderazo inicial de la 4ta. Atv Ruta Durango Mazatlán 2013. Los esperamos para la "Quinta". Por ahí nos vemos.

Well, that's technically SR. He's from Colorado

But since he lives in Durango, I was claiming the "gringo that traveled to the Ruta" card

And then, I see Walter cite a Canadian

Are Canadians gringos?

You can be the first Gringo. I don't mind. I've been here so long I've turned into a Mexican or at least a Mexican American or an American Mexican?

I'll have to ask Walter about the Canadian. If there was one I'm certain we would have seen them. Maybe a Mexican who lives in Canada or a Canadian who signed up and didn't show up?

Canadians are Gringos IMO. My wife says that they are not?

If you accept the account of "Green Go Home" then the wife is correct.
