Ahh, the beauty of Palenque and the lovely Ester. A good place to be at the end of the world.
Wau...México de verdad es peligroso.
Watching "Once a Time in Mexico" for the upteenth time...I always feel better by the end of the movie....
Thanks as always gentlemen for the wit and wisdom.
I meant Villahermosa but you guys probably knew that. Thanks
SR, nice to see the pic of me riding through Xalapa with Craneguy turned out so well.
3rd in your sequence. 4th one was the next weekend, in Cardel.
Meanwhile, nothing says fun like being balls deep back in the sierra!
Somewhere out there, there is an ocean...Somewhere closer, there was an ocean
Hey Craneguy, I finally found out where this badboy lives. He was asking about you. He's getting a little skinny.
This is what crowd control looks like in the sierra to keep the lemmings and curious ADV riders away from the edge.
Nothing says fun like being tangled up in rusty alambre de puas before a few thousand foot drop! Hope I can get
a close up of that landslide on the mountain some time.
La casa del Padrino...se llama Marlon to you.
We used that in reference to "breaking wind"
Hello , Hello RMO !!!!! If you cannot make it on the motorbike and have to resort to kombi then
remember in Mexico city there exist 2 main bus stations ......... 1 services destinations north of Mexico city.
The other called " Tapo" services destinations to the south of Mexico City . HOWEVER, there is a new bus station at the airport terminal in Mexico city. (nice premier class buses with wifi and snacks) For sure you can leave there direct for Puebla without getting a cab all the way to Tapo bus station . Do your homework for whatever best suits your desires. "Capu" is Puebla's main bus station . http://www.capu.com.mx/capu/ .
I have been down in Mexico recently and it was a-ok. Enjoy!
Thanks. Keep spreading the word that Mexico is safe.
Here is more on the the topic about riding in Mexico from AnjinSan who stayed with us. (http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=810189&page=13) Read his ride report - very well done and a different perspective about North America.
"Tom: yeah, at the moment of this writing we are out of Mexico and even though I recognize that it might not be the same for everyone, for us Mexico was just very nice and full of nice people that left us a with a wonderful impression. Writing the ride reports for those parts of the trip makes me think that I would go there again, someday, somehow."
Psst! It was Sjoerd.
He's been everywhere:eek1
Take care Shawn! Hope that you have a safe and fun trip!
Will be in Laredo on business tomorrow and expect to cross the border and spend the afternoon in Nuevo Laredo. If anyone is there and wants to get together for an Indio or 8 then drop me a line.
I'll be riding in Hermosillo tomorrow at lunch time for a meeting. A chance to split lanes by following the pizza delivery guys. Hermosillo drivers remind of Boston drivers. Yeah, that bad.
How do you know when a Pueblano has moved into your neighborhood?
The Jarochos start buying car insurance.
This is a duplicate post from the CA route planning thread. I will be looking at the link there from the other guy this happen to but any information would be helpful.
Just copied and pasted since I assume I will be hearing from all the usual suspects

SB your comments are spot about the TC. I just got issues a 30 day one eventhough I said I was just touring Mex. It all works for me bc I flying out of PV back to AK for a few weeks. So on my return flight I will just get a new TC.
Had I been going straight though it would have been a major problem.
OH SHIT!!! I just checked my TVIP and it is only for 30 days!!!!
Any suggestions on getting this corrected???? Damn IT!!!! I thought TVIP was always for 6 months and the lady at the counter said they could only do TC for 30 days but like I said I didnt care.
I wished I had noticed this in Maz and I would have tried to correct at the ferry terminal.
Fire away with the bad or good new boys!!! What is my best plan to handle all this now?
The TVIP will always be for the same term as you visa/TC. I'm thinking you can head to the nearest Banjercito office and ask for mercy but I doubt they will be able to do anything and you are probably going to have to go to immigration and turn in the tourist visa and get a new one for 180 days (not free). Then do the same thing at the Banjercito. You will get your deposit back at the current exchange rate then pay it again. You will be out the initial fee you paid unless you find a sympathetic ear and someone who knows how to force the computer to cooperate.
How many days do you plan on being in Mexico?
Buenes suerte and report back to the rest of us with the outcome.
Where are you at the moment?
