Clarification: the security situation is more laid back than a boring movie, not the scenery

I dread entering Texas tomorrow (Colombia) and sharing the road with IPhone using drivers

West out of Monterrey?.........

Skip Saltillo guys

Run 1 more hour (mas o menos) out of Saltillo and stay at the El Farol in Parras

Again, only If you are going West (40), not south (57) out of Saltillo to DF or San Miguel

Plan on a weekend arrival? Call to reserve.

There are other options in Parras, but this is what you want

OK, time to play catchup on this trip's posts before it's over.

After Trice, SR, Miguel, Alejandro and all the other riders blitzed outta Durango Friday, and after my Sanborn's breakfast, it was on to Fresnillo and Zacatecas to fetch a couple of things I left behind last time. And connect with another Adv inmate and a footballer friend.

First Fresnillo. SR had told me about a little chapel (Capilla de Plateros) where for decades the faithful have left various artifacts and testimonials of miracles and blessings, giving thanks to the local saint, El Santo Niño de Atocha.

































Then on to La Quemada south of Zacatecas to see the ruins there. One of the larger minor sites and considered a satellite city to Teotihuacan.





















From Zacatecas you can do La Quemada and the museum (was closed when I got there) in less than a full day.

After the ruins I rolled in to Zacatecas El Centro to meet my footballer friend.

To be continued....

JD and I got back to the Casa Madero winery here in Parras de la Fuente early this afternoon, and now Brian's bottle of Casa Madero Chenin Blanc is safely stowed in my gear bag as I type this in Parras, Coahuila, and it will be my privaledge to ship it to him from San Antonio, Texas, in the next few days

.......

As far as the remark about 2 bottles.....Schizzman and I opened the other one this afternoon

. . .
Gracias, Trice
Lets call it a cultural exchange. I also have a bottle for you as promised. Only 10 cases of this 2007 vintage remain...sorry only 9 now
I hope to have a chance this winter to visit Casa Madero in person.

Not to interrupt the clique's male bonding, but I mentioned a few days ago that there was a protest on Highway 15 up there somewhere south of San Carlos that had the road blocked. Sounds like you dudes are riding back to Texas the direct way, but if anyone is heading from Mazatlan to Nogales you are going to run into this.

Anyway, an Indian group is protesting over the loss of their water rights and the road has been blocked. It was a 24 hour delay. Now folks are saying that they are opening the road for 30 minutes every 2 hours.

After Zacatecas

Soooo, hung around Zacatecas El Centro for awhile trying to connect with my friend and failing miserably when I heard from pilot815's dad, RW66. So I bailed on Zac and rode up to Fresnillo to meet Roy and his Triumph Tiger. Roy bought me dinner and put me up for the night then treated me to breakfast the next day. Good company and a solid rider, too. He's been working in Mexico for many years and is a good friend and resource for adv riders passing through so be sure to look him up when passing that way.

Roy and his Tiger



After breakfast with Roy Saturday I took off for Mazatlan bypassing Durango and mixing it up on the new cuota and the best sections of the Espinazo del Diablo before checking in at El Cid to wait for Trice, SR and the guys to get in.

This is always a shock to me when I cross back. It's like they are trying to kill me as soon as I cross the bridge. Is riding in the US safe?

The Plateros church is the 2nd or 3rd most visited church in Mexico. It is amazing to see all the tour busses there each weekend...it is very interesting for such a small nowhere pueblo that they get so many visitors to the church....the Santo Niño de Atocha is very well known and respected in the area.
+1 on the mine tour....the last 100 yards as you come out of the top of the mine will test your stamina.......worth a visit...however it is open only on Sat and Sun.
