I'll probably be heading down into the Sierra Fria on the Veracruz/Puebla border south of Cordoba/Orizaba this Sunday if the Mystery Rider decides to stop playing Bob Vila for a day or so. He's a complicated riding buddy, he gets back from a month in Africa and starts rebuilding the rebuilding. LOL!
I'll let you know if the tolls have come down. Absolutely nobody knew anything about it at the tolls I rode through with CraneGuy just last weekend.
Fingers crossed, this will be a big help in covering many more miles much faster to some very good riding locales in this part of Mexico.
Pay less, ride farther, eat more home wood fire cooking, breathe more mountain air, and then get farther off the map.
The answer to "Is Mexico Safe" is right there.
