Ive been to Pv 2 times wish I had had a bike at the time when I was down there to explore.Whos gonna develop the coast lines there as you were saying,the mexican government,the drug lourdes,Multi national companies that have to ruin everything w so called progress? When I 1st went to pv w friend in 07 we walked about 10 miles from in town to the Nuevo vallarta back towards the airport.I saw n Starbucks,home depot walmarts etc and friend was telling me years ago it was all mom and pop stuff and these stupid companies put alot of homegrown stuff out of business.All I could say was jesus christ for gawds sakes can I go anywhere there isnt a freaking starbucks or this other ilk.Isnt this one of the reasons we go on vacations to not only clear our heads but to spend time w friends and loved ones w out all the bs and glam. starbucks=.5 bucks for toilet water what a sham.I hope I can someday retire to a resort like that or get some kind of bungalow by the beach.NJs beach houses are 500.000 dollars to way into the millions like mc hammer says cant touch this.

We were four in a car. All of us exited the vehicle at the checkpoint while it was searched. My cousin showed her DL. That's it.

Tenacatita is roughly two hours south from Pto. Vallarta. No one knows who will win the battle over this beach but a major resort with full amenities is being planned. So get down there and see it before its gone. Take snorkeling gear. Don't take any alcohol.

Fun hobby: getting lookers to model for the camera

This episode here took about three minutes of the usual shtick, then bam, paparazzi time

Lost

Well I got plenty lost on the way to Tualancingo last night. Ended up having my first experience with a motel. Muy interesante. I have not had email for awhile now. Dona Sara was ecstatic. More later.

Say it ain't so, Joe!
My wife and I are travelling through Mexico at the moment with two motorcycles, both registered under my name. We obtained two separate TVIPs at Pichilingue by showing a copy of our marriage certificate (not even the original). As long as all the names match, you will have no problem.

Hey Bato and Andy, great to hear you made it to Soto La Marina as planned. I will pass along your regards to Raphael Lago at his shop Motopits.
Had a great ride up through the mountains with DCStorm on his Yamaha. Great fun, we found a stretch of road that maybe Andres and Arte will identify for you ha, ha. I will try to post a picture later of the waterfall with the goats. Long day, we got back around 4pm.
It was a pleasure to ride with you and Andy, give him my regards and Manolo too, over in Huatusco.
Come back soon and I'll show you the road we found today. It connects two of the sierras, I had to try it as the paving was finished and then we found the middle part paved with concrete and we got pretty far on it.
Ride safe tomorrow, watch out for that cold front moving in.
