Nice write up, Andy. You've been able to provide some good ideas for visiting riders, good detail. I will have to try that seafood place, if Manolo says it's good, I know it'll be good!
Thanks for the tip on that one.

I think I posted about my jefe de obra's lineament - bacanora and marijuana. He swears by it It didn't seem to do much for my pain when applied topically and I wasn't about to drink it. It may have increased blood flow

Hey TC, my mother in law swears by that. For decades she has always had a bottle for aches and pains. Guess who always provided here with it?
A Mexican customs and immigration agent we know.
Those were the good old days.

Tom: did you have an MRI of that knee? What are you doing for therapy? Takes time. I still have some swelling and discomfort after 10 months. Trice did a lot of conditioning before his injury, is younger, and I expect that he will have a quick recovery unless Mrs Trice gets wind of his Cabo Capers. She can run faster pushing a stroller than he can through the bush. (Double entendre fully intentional.)

He is in serious harm's way in Cabo. Tall, handsome, fit, fifty something dude with confidence, a sense of humor, money and a limp...perfect target for the predatory females of land's end Baja. They have already gone as far as they can go and are looking for the next diversion. Situational awareness buddy.
David, no MRI. I'm certain that there is still significant bruising and there is not enough blood flow to take it away.

My therapy is running back and forth to my new straw bale house under construction across the street. We are under the gun to get it done because I have to feed 45 people over there the second week of March.

I will post fotos when I come up for air.

Consider a clinic here in Banamichi. We will have lots of room in the new digs

You can probably find some peyote ointment. It's readily available here in Jalisco. Works great on joints.

I don't think people call them joints anymore, do they?

The luxurious Hotel Los Arcos on the right.
The soon to be famous Bale House and Bacanora Clinic on the left.


I give them both 5 stars.

You're right, Mike, I write assuming most of the readers have never been to Mexico and I want to make it seem doable. I think you'll enjoy the restaurant. While you're there, take the opportunity to wander down to the river. Some good picture possibilities.

Speaking of AndyC, I went up for another ride on the eastern slopes of El Pico via Manuel Gonzalez, Huatusco, Coscomatepec (breakfast steak), and up through Tacoa.

Not the earliest of starts, but besides breaking the rule of "never ride Mexico in the dark" from time to time you have to break the rule of "let sleeping dogs lie"...good thing she didn't yawn, scared me enough the last time!



Sheep are up early, we'll continue with monochrome and animals...



Dropped by to see "Mama and the Turkettes" live in concert...



View from the little town wasn't too bad...



Got up a little closer...



I like the "bridge" or "telezoom" cameras, beats having to lug an 850mm lens around in the tank bag (are you happy to see me?)...



To get up to this place, you first head through the shadow and the valley...a river ran through it.



Sometimes you start the day, best intentions, you have already framed some shots in your mind, and then the fun starts. The light becomes harsher, you get talking at breakfast and lose track of time. You end up
trying an entire sequence of shots that really don't work out. And then you simply take a look through the viewfinder and click off the one that makes you happy...




Riding with a buddy is always interesting, makes taking a breakfast stop easier, puts another perspective on the day, generally adds some "colour" to all the goings on...



Anyway you cut it, and colours like "orange" aside, that new 2014 Adventure from KTM is just a damn good bike. Take away all the orange and you've got a solid bike for Mexico and high speed cuota work...



Then as you are heading down the mountain, you come to a little village where someone has done the laundry and you realize that this was the shot you were looking for all along...



So that's a "FrankenFriday"...wrinkles and all.

Since the first of the year I have been using a cannabis infused salve on my arthritic thumb joints. The stuff really is the best thing I have found for joint pain. I have been using it on my knee as well. It is in no way psychoactive.

Next time I am in Jal I will look for the peyote ointment. I want to find something that works a little magic. There a whole host of natural medicines from which we have been deprived because of big Pharma.

They seemed available enough when I was a younger man.

Talking about the medicinals that may become known and available after having been suppressed for so long.

Actually its Big Government doing the depriving.
