Moto-Fizz is so nice; I really like the way it works and saves the weight of hard bags/mounts.

Reminds me of a time when I got stopped by the Transitos in Reynosa. The one cop kept asking me about "whiskey?" and I could honestly respond "no!" to that one.

Thankfully his English was limited because if he had asked about my personal consumption of cerveza or tequila then I might have had a different answer ;)

Below, a vaquero amigo in the hinterland beyond Galeana.....met him while exploring the-then titled "unknown ride", which was only a trail on a map neither I nor any of the twtexans on Mextrek had explored until that day.

Funny how many back country vaqueros carry a little comida and/or supply in those little blue plastic bags.

I know the feeling very well. LOL!
And we can add "elevation" to the mix, more often than not.

I have a lot of respect for the Mexican Vaqueros. Eeking out a living on very tough land for ranching.

In remote areas it's a good idea to make a good first impression with the Vaqueros by waving stopping to chat. It is their job to know what is going on on the land they are interested to know what you are up to. Also, they know every inch of the land around and if you get broke down or injured they are likely the guys who could help.

About the plastic bags, I've noticed that the Vaquerros seem to be very practical. It is never a fashion show with these guys. The just seem to wear what they own. You rarely see cowboy boots, usually just worn out shoes and sometimes sandals.
Arriba Vaqueros Mexicanos!!

For Greater Glory (Cristiada). Saw this movie today with the wife. Good movie on the history of the Cristero War, 1926-1929 in which the Mexican government closed down the Catholic Church. True story. Well worth watching. Disregard the movie critics. Rare do I hear an audience applaud a movie. Many were in tears, and people stayed to watch all the credits roll at the end of the movie. It's only showing in select theaters.

Interesting. That movie opened in Mexico before the USA from what I can tell. It was very well received here, shows you the cess pool where the PRI came from.

One thing about Greater Glory that amazed me was that many Mexicans on both sides of the border know little if anything about this civil war. The roots of the conflict between the Catholic Church and the Mexican govt go far back, way more than 1920. Lot of good history to read here,

In violation of the truce of 1929, after the Cristeros laid down their weapons, Calles hunted them down, and murdered them and their families.
