Trice's excellent post has reminded me of my own process of arriving at the go/nogo decision to ride México and the role this thread and the RR's of several here played in that decision. Since that time over 2 years ago it's been my great privilege to travel with a number of different México riders of varying levels of experience and I have known no other travelers to posses a greater understanding of the issues involved in adventure travel.
I will miss Chango's many positive and entertaining posts and hope that his permaban will encourage all to avoid going toxic on this most excellent thread.
