"Expired" and "closed" are two distinctly different things, Hermano. And according to my tax accountant I'll be working for the government until sometime in early June.

I thought you wanted your ashes shot out of a cannon.

You'll miss some good stuff in some of the towns. Not every town is Juarez

Well , well,. Come over for coffee and details So I left Monclova como a medio dia, and...

After all my place here is not that bad being for a month traveling now I appreciate it, just don't want to go back to the coach and icecream 24/7

The staff for Banejercito in Allende is more flexible than the kids at Acuna .,
Amen

In Monclova now at the Hotel Olympia. Very nice old hotel. I had never been to the centro of Monclova and assumed the whole town was like the calle principal. Wrong. The plaza is quite nice and I've fallen in love a few times already. Something about these Mexicanas is very appealing...
They are installing a super high tech weapons detection installation at Allende; its like a cat scan for an 18 wheeler. Not sure if I want to ride my moto through that thing; its enormous. Border crossing at Acuna was muy tranquilo although the Aduana guy looked inside all of Guero's maletas.
Tomorrow off to Sierra around Rayones and Galeana then over to R14. Saludos, Jim

Sounds like a great ride and a great time of year to do it.

Have fun and keep your feet up crossing back in to Tejas.

RW,

Looking forward to seeing you, pilot tells me you'll be here the following weekend. I'm a bit tempted to ride up to the Hillcountry and camp out this Saturday and Sunday, there seems to be a short window of opportunity at work. Weather is gorgeous.

Man, I've been working to set that up for some years now. I can do my job from anywhere in the world with adequate Internet conn. But there's so much corp espionage these days that companies are shutting that down. Oh well.

I like that ride from Acuna to the Allende checkpoint. It's more interesting than the ride from PN to the checkpoint.

If you are taking backroads from Monclova to Rayones/Galeana, I'd like to see your route. Also would like to see your route out of Galeana to Matehuala or R14, if also using backroads. Thanks!
