We started our trip on November 23rd 2017 Thanks Giving. Arriving at the Tecate border first thing to do was get some pesos, there are several casa de cambio's at the border. Next we needed to enter Mexico and get our FMM stamped. We had already received our paper work from Vagabundos and had receipt for payment. So it was just a stamp needed. Our riding group consists 3 of us total, I'm riding a 2012 990 ADV r, Scott is on a 2017 1290 Adventure r, and Joe is on a 2011 Triumph 800 XC. We all have the Sena headsets that are great, if you haven't tried them you should. This is the first time that i have laid out a complete route turn by turn for the whole trip, it was all done on Garmin Base Camp and E32 Cartografia a company in Mexico that has topo off road maps for the Garmin. So now on the road in Tecate following the track we leave town going East, It's easier to stay off of the toll road and just use the free road. Around 15 miles East you turn South on the Compadre trail, this is the begining of the dirt. It's just a wide graded dirt road that 2 cars can easily pass, the road is in good condition. The next waypoint will be Hacienda Veronicas where cocktails, dinner and our beds wait. Follow the track and it will take you right to the lobby where you pay and get the rooms. The cost was about $70 per person for a double occupancy room. We pulled the bikes right to the rooms, unloaded showered and headed for the bar. About the rooms, it seems that many of the hotels in Mexico are never quite perfect, our recurring problem was not enough hot water. Everything else is great. Also Veronica seems to be very secure. Since we were there on Thanksgiving there was the 3 of us and maybe 4 other people staying that night. So we were the only ones in the bar restaurant. Dinner was great and cocktails cold and strong. Around 10 pm I went to bed. Next morning I got up around sunrise and started checking the place out and taking pictures. Around 7am I got someone to open the restaurant so i could get some coffee. I think around 8am they were ready for us and had Huevos rancheros. After that it's time to load up and head out Ojos Negros. (one small note on the track, follow the track that brought you in to Veronica's, when you join with the main dirt road you'll turn right and head to Ojos Negros, dont follow the track as i laid it out leaving Veronica's) The Picture above we are just leaving Chatsworth Ca. for the ride to the border. Just arrived at Hacienda Veronica Main entrance to Veronica Joe at the bar.
