You know what is really strange? Is how quickly you become accustomed to stories like the one above.
A few years back I would have read it, nowadays it doesn't rate a second glance. Unless the numbers are a couple dozen or more, it just isn't news to anyone.
Sad, but true. Bet a few other people feel the same, right Steve?

Hehehh...dunno. If you saw my helmet hair you'd think Helen Keller styles my hair. The name isn't spam - I have nothing to do with them. It's an inside joke among some friends from a long time ago.

ObMexico: To be quite honest, I actually wussed out of a trip to MX a few weeks ago because I scared the crap out of myself reading borderlandbeat waiting for parts for my bike in a Tucson hotel room. Rode all the way out and then wet myself at the border and ran home. I'm back in Ohio trying to get my courage up and waiting for another warm-ish break in the weather to make a run for the border again.

This thread really helps me temper the BB fear mongering with some reality. I really shouldn't read it so damn much - makes the place sound like Somalia.

Google "shooting spree". No details, just the two words. Try it.

The results will have you wanting to flee the U.S. for Mexico

Don't read that stuff, you'll be able to actually enjoy Mexico.

Meanwhile, the lady that keeps you safe here, aka the Virgin, is celebrating her day!

The Way South

Gallup, NM well... Well, West Gallup... the place has really sprawled. I delayed my trip enough that it was snowy at home and hazardous in a 4x4, it was 19 degees F. in Mancos this AM when I started getting the bike ready. It is 28 in Gallup and 72 in Palenque with a high tomorrow of 90. 34 in Columbus, NM with a high of 64 manana. Can deal with that. Rain Friday with a high of 55 for the border crossing. Can deal with that too. When I get it all sorted out I will start a RR and will post that link here. Thanks for listening.

setting here in arkansas covered up with a blanket

I'm ready for a warmer climate...someplace where Santa uses dualsports instead of reindeer....listening to Kenny Chesney's "When the Sun Goes Down".....Like another song says.....God is great, beer (or another beverage) is good, and people are crazy..... I need to fix a PIAA light problem, do an oil change, evaluate my tires and then be ready to roll. Merry Christmas ADVriders.
