Trice, I can't be the first to say that Steve McQueen looks like you, can I?

Second, what's the fascination with Selma...I mean she ain't all that, is she?

Jajajajajaaaa.....

Thanks for the report. I particularly enjoyed reading of your satisfaction at having tackled some off-road that challenged you, despite your "mature age". I'm a few years younger than you, not much...and, I'm improving...poco a poco...con mucha paciencia. Gracias mil, amigo.

Well, I'm a ripe 56, and determined to go out like Jimi Heselden.



Oooops! Not politically correct! Sorry!

Well - first of all, its Salma, not Selma. Selma is a town in Texas right next to my town! Salma is a Mexican woman of Lesbian, er, I mean, Lebanese descent who happens to be the hottest (IMHO) actor from Mexico who is also married to French Bajillionaire (15 Billion, to be close) François-Henri Pinault. That's 7.5 Billion per boob, if you do the math He dated supermodel Linda Evangelista before Hayek, but decided to "Go Big or Go Home", so to speak Sorry!

But for inquiring, you get the matcing Hayek bikini pic

So tough that she's worth 15 Billion

At today's exchange rate, that's a lot of pesos!

For the whole trip to Mexico, I had been planning a celebratory dinner at La Costa Marinera in Mazatlán

Grilled lobster
Grilled Shrimp in mojo de ajo

You can keep the other stuff on the plate



My dinner guests were SR, Schizzman, Miguel, Alex, and Jim (Going South)

Want to buy a mask after dinner? This guy will sell you one



Stuffed, like the lobsters!



A roadmap for the return trip to Durango, painted on a wall near the restaurant. Lot's of ADV trekkers have been to Daniel's in Copala.

Hey! What's this next to the El Cid in Mazatlán? An enduro track?

Must explore!







Only in Mexico - nobody cares you're out there, no admission fee, no supervision, no waivers to sign.

I would call that a motocross track.

I believe that "enduro" is a term referring more to tracks and trails that are more "natural" in their configurations than a motocross track that is a fixed loop groomed by a bulldozer. An enduro race is significantly different from a motocross race.

Think Erzberg when you think enduro....or, in this case, this Durango-Mazatlan route is an enduro ride.

Trice, welcome to the world of enduro....

Family Butt Cream

Neither Tricepilot nor I have calloused enough butts to endure 25 hours of bumpy riding, so by the end of the ride we both had cases of Monkey Butt requiring medical attention.

Now picture this, two Gringo dudes waddle into a farmacia in Mazatlan together on a Saturday morning. Tricepilot looks around and nervously goes up to the lady at the counter and asks for some "Crema de Nalgas" Ass Cream. No matter how good ones Spanish is, this will never sound cool and it did not sound right when it came out. So what does Tricepilot do next? He doubles down and tries to make it sound better by saying, Estilo Familiar. Family Style Ass Cream that is!

The lady handed him a tube of Disitin cream plus a jar of Vaseline for the future.

Well, the Vaseline part is not true, but that story kicked off a volley of tasteless adolecent macho jokes about butt cream to last the rest of the weekend! Good fun!
