In case of a water landing, use your seat cushion as a flotation device

The kind of rider with whom you don't want to go into the Sierra outback.

Anybody know the status of the 131 road from Oaxaca city to Puerto Escondido? I had heard it was closed due to the storm. I had planned to go that way on Monday, but if it's still closed will have to make other plans.
When the road's open, under normal conditions, how long does that trip take by bike?

It really depends on how you ride, if it is raining, traffic, phase of the moon, etc...The road, if it is still closed today, could be open by Monday. We have had a lot of rain here, and couple that with the teachers striking, the cane workers striking, and the usual landslides for this time of year and, as usual for Mexico, you take it as it comes.
The good news is that, when the toll boths are taken over by the strikers you either pay a small token amount or nothing at all. Yes, tolls are half price for bikes now anyways, but it all adds up to a tank of gas at the end of the day.
If you need a good link to rain forecasts, PM me.

Big news! Mexico City is going to smell better!

http://news.yahoo.com/p-u-mexico-cit...042243336.html

Here's a quote from the article:

"Anna Sloan, a 68-year-old tourist from California who arrived at the Mexico City airport one recent afternoon, noticed a foul odor while waiting to pick up her luggage.
"What's that smell? That's horrible!" she told a group of friends traveling with her. "That's no way to welcome visitors."


Can't wait until Anna walks into the restroom at the nearest Pemex.
Next time I visit a Pemex, I will remind them that is no way to welcome a customer. The response might expand my vocabulary with new and interesting nouns and verb combos. Anna don't do stink.


They could easily eliminate the stink in DF, just fumigate San Lazaro.

Mex 131 to Puerto Escondido was blocked for a while last week, as reported by DRRider, check hid RR Prairies T Penguins
However DRRider explained that he got to the south coast by backtracking north to Oaxaca
and next day going south via Mex 175 which runs to Pochutla and Puerto Angel and Zipolite farther east on the coast than PE on Mex 200

It is probable that the road flooding and landslides on 131 have by
now been addressed sufficiently and you ought to be able to get through.
Ask about road condition before starting the trek .
The 175 route is a great alternative , both routes cross the Sierra M
Del Sur , both are equally fantastic .

Visit Veracruz! The state where you can ride "off road" while "on road".
I think it will stop raining in March or so...

Se les parte el cerro!

Y RESCATAN A 150 MISANTLECOS

* Evacuan Liquidámbar en Misantla y Rincón de Negros en Alto Lucero

Poco más de 150 personas fueron evacuados de la comunidad Liquidámbar, en el municipio de Misantla, esto debido a que un cerro comenzaba a desgajarse ante las lluvias de los últimos días.

El alcalde de ese municipio, Javier Hernández Candanedo, dijo que las familias se encontraban en riesgo debido a un deslizamiento de tierra por lo que elementos de la Secretaría de Marina (Semar) acudieron al lugar para llevar a los afectados a un refugio temporal.

“Fue de manera preventiva, las lluvias reblandecieron el cerro y había riesgo de que cayera sobre las viviendas, lo que apreciamos es que el cerro se estaba partiendo y así ha sucedido en otras ocasiones que empiezan los deslaves, por esta razón se pidió ayuda, lo que se hizo fue llevar a las familias con ayuda de la Marina a un refugio temporal ubicado en la galera de la familia Ramírez, ubicada a tres kilómetros de la comunidad” explicó.

El edil puntualizó que actualmente en el albergue habilitado para tal fin permanecen 35 adultos y 35 menores, en tanto que otras 40 personas fueron trasladadas a la comunidad El Guayabal con familiares.

Explicó que personal de Protección Civil y otros cuerpos de auxilio acudieron al lugar para acordonar la zona y evitar percances por el hundimiento.

Por otro lado, las autoridades de PC estatales, informaron que habitantes de la comunidad Rincón de Negros, en el municipio de Alto Lucero, también fueron evacuados.

Las familias fueron llevadas a la comunidad de Vaquería y otras más decidieron acudir con sus familiares donde permanecen mientras pasa la contingencia.

El director de Atención a Emergencias de la dependencia, Ricardo Maza Limón, también expuso que dos familias decidieron mantenerse en sus casas, pese al llamado de las autoridades.

I could live there, or Puerto Escondido
