    I don't know if motion GIFs are illegal to post in general fori here at ADV, but I think this one makes a point we all need to heed here at IS MEXICO SAFE?

    I will keep my eye out for the Google Earth car! Looks like its not the safest place to be a donkey.

    Lived in Colorado for the longest stretch of my military career. Colorado Springs.

    Something about that state calls me home. Reminds me of Durango (Mexico) and the Sierra. So many of my buds have Colorado connections.

    I still have family there.

    You, Tom, and SR, RMO, Jimmex, Bill, and tons more of my amigos have Colorado anchors.

    I'm hauling the KTM to Telluride and discussing all this with my favorite Hollywood mogul, RMO.

    I'm intent on riding the Colorado back country with Bill's map (fantastic). Our "Man From Sayulita" knows maps.

    Then jump the border to Utah. South to Arizona. East to New Mexico. Then home.

    Tricedaughter (2012 study abroad in Prague)

    She starts this summer at Colorado State in Fort Collins for grad school (Occupational Therapy). She's my #1 reason to make Colorado my "home away from home" (again).

    David in Telluride

    Jimmy in Rico

    And Bill, well, right there in Fort Collins! :freaky

    SR - our graduate of the Colorado School of Mines in Golden

    Probably a bunch more

    Don't underestimate the Colorado/Mexico connection :deal

    Fortunately, now they sell Coors Light at OXXO. So in Mexico we're never more than 2 blocks away from finding a traguito de nuestra tierra! It's very comforting!

    Viva Colorado!:clap

    And the map pinpointer is, just so you know, for "Arturo's Tacos", not a seismic event
