Well said. Whilst the near do wells lower themselves on the rung of humanity; you sir have brought yourself a rung or more higher.

I"m enjoying your report. But man, do you have a lot of stuff! It's kind of like what would happen when someone from "Hoarding, Buried Alive" takes a trip.

Just kidding - have a great trip, but maybe you shouldn't have bought the parrot.

This site is loaded with info so enjoy exploring. Around the corner from Puerto Escondido is Zicitella Beach miles of motels and a campground Garden of Eden or Alba's. Breakfast at Carmen's, Rock Away for bar/pool, Teo's for dinner. Have fun ask Don Franko about his flavored mescal. Say hi to Gordey, white 250 dirt bike. Ask Rosco where the party is? Captain Tom

This is an awesome way to keep up with how things are going. It looks so warm there, rode to the Toy Run in Medford on Saturday, 28 degrees with ice forming on my knees and sleeves of my jacket, hmmmm that sun looks toasty good. Keep on keepin' on...

I too spent many winters in Escondido. Deadly waves, the point is excellent when breaking. Look up the Crow if you are there, he's probably a local fixture by now. Hell, I haven't been there since 1992, can't imagine what it is like now. My first visit was 1983, couldn't even find a surfboard back then, now it's an international surf destination.

]I meet up with some fellow adventure riders in Mazatlan. They marvel at what is the “overloaded KLR”. I deliver the extra set of brake pads that I picked up for them in Phoenix, and we talk about the direction we are going. They are going inland, and I am headed down the coast for the next few days. We are both heading toward mexico city and then to Belize. I’ll be a day or so behind them in Mexico City, but should catch up by Belize. [/FONT][/SIZE][/QUOTE]


Nice meeting you. Your blog is amazing. Nice pic of me :)

They actually did me a favor wish they had gotten me out sooner.

I'd like punctuation for $1. And a translator.

Enjoying your report bro, but reading about you hitting the tope or whatever the thing is called brought back some unpleasant memories of another adventurer who suffered a terrible mishap in Mexico.

So please be careful, and keep the shiny side up.

I don't think you can get a bachelor's degree with that writing style. Maybe not even a GED.

I dunno, my group turned in a couple lab reports that were fueled by caffeine and sugar, which usually made the professor cry. We knew we were in trouble if he called us over and told us to read a section out loud, because it meant it would make no sense the minute you heard yourself say it out loud. Unless we were hung over from celebrating wrapping up the report. I have never figured out how to use the English language hungover.

Bottom line, I gots meself a bachelors, but it were techy, so me no write gud from time to time. But the reading aloud trick is a good one I use every day at my real job (spent the last half of today going over another guy's plan, and still have an hour or so of looking it over to do tomorrow morning). Heck, I find myself using the same editing tactics here from time to time!

yes...i do have a lot of sh%t!! Remeber though, I have two small duffel bags extra with dress clothes and dress shoes, etc so I can go out dancing and on dates on this trip. I am also of the mindset that if you have room, you should bring it.

If i make it without breaking the KLRs rear subframe bolts, then all will be good.....
