Hey Trice! An old friend dropped by and was asking about Los Tejanos earlier this afternoon...




I sent him up your way...



I knew him from when he worked in the music business, we were talking about this singer. We both knew her like this, before the implants...



She always had a way of putting the "Muse" in "Music"!

We seem to be dragging the inclement weather with us as we head south in search of the warm, sunny Mexico we know and love. Still, it beats working for a living.







Arrived in Durango at 5:30pm and checked into the Hotel Posada San Agustin. They were expecting us and had cleared all furniture from our path. ;)



Enjoyed the fine hospitality of Casa SR then turned in early for the big ride to San Blas, or Ruiz, or wherever we end up tomorrow. Plan to arrive MAZ Sunday afternoon.

The weird thing is that I have a pickup truck here as well and it is out of registration now for 6 years . My big worry was that I would not be able to run the camper here because of the illegal truck but no problem I plan on driving both out at the end of the trip.

He got around it because he's using an RV

Q&A From Baja Bound:

What happens if we want to tow a second vehicle behind our RV or motorhome? Do we need two different permits?

Motorhomes are allowed to tow a second vehicle. The second (towed) vehicle is eligible for a 6 month temporary import permit. One driver may now use their valid U.S. drivers license, credit card with Visa/AMEX/Mastercard logo and original citizenship documentation to bond both vehicles (RV and towed vehicle) at the same time.

Q&A From Baja Bound:

How long is the RV permit good for?

Unlike other vehicle import permits that are valid up to 6 months, RV and Motorhome permits are valid up to 10 years.


Bonus for the curious:

What kind of RV and motorhome type of vehicles are eligible to receive a Mexican temporary import permit good for 10 years?

RV temporary import permits are granted for motorhomes or fully converted vans. Pick-up trucks with slide in campers are not eligible for 10 year permits.

My reading is that your RV is good for the full 10 years. Not sure what you mean by "10 years of 6 months per visit".

But what do I know.

If John still has his RV, I'm going to borrow it and take it to Baja with the KTM.

I'll use it as a mobile HQ for the SCORE 1000

The weather broke today and provided for us another epic day of México riding. We left Durango after washing the previous days riding off the bikes







Then we bought barrel gas in Mezquital (none for the GSA, thank you)



Then onward through the Huichol mountains.









Stopped to check out a hotel in Jesus Maria.











Worthy of Sjoerd's Bakker's guidebook at 15USD por noche.

The La Señora SR secured rooms for us in San Blas (muchissimas gracias!)



Then onward to San Blas.

Yaaaay, Schizzman, now , did you actually sleep there ?
The hotel Buen Pastor is indeed recommendable, I have been including it in my book
since mid 2012 in an included insert . In the one photo of its " " atrium" you show the room I stayed in at the far right corner at the end of the clothesline.
Very relaxing night , made it possible todo next days ride to Tepic at very relaxed pace.
El Buen a Pastor 's listing has now been blended tidily into my new 2014 Third Edition
updated and slightly expanded book . In fact it is still sitting in boxes in my car after picking them up from the Staples printshop an hour ago.
Enjoy your ride.

Oh , this am on TV NEWS saw a really Unsafe condition in Mexico :
A big section of Mex 1 D , both lanes , south of Tijuana has collapsed into the Pacific
yesterday

Here's Sjoerd's "I've been there" map he showed me here at the Casona. He highlighted the routes he's been on. And they've only been added to since I scanned the map for this photo. And this is obviously only part of the map.



Kinda looks like spider veins on the legs of Martha Stewart Not that I would know.

If you've lurked the threads where riders have asked about route planning, invariably you will find his well thought out and incisive recommendations.
The family and I have had an amazing trip here in Mexico. We will be on our way home to Missouri soon. We would like to take a day trip from Leon to celaya or Morelia. Can you guys recommend a cool hotel with parking for a truck in either of those cities? Also interesting things to see. I know about the acueducto. Gracias por la ayuda...
