That's a favourite Australian saying...
He could make a fool of himself with gators, but all it took to kill him was a vengeful stingray.
I was reading the thread backwards (most recent post first) and saw his post come up out of context and was thinking the same thing. I have some Facebook friends that are cross dressers and do the evening show at a club called 801 Bourbon on Duval Street in Key West and my first reaction was that somehow they were over here on ADVRider keeping you characters entertained. :eek1
Nothing whatsoever against folks of an alternative lifestyle but not exactly my idea of a retirement plan
Heart attack while in the act en Mexico. Works for me! Clearly the kind of legacy that my family is expecting from me.
I have seen your friends on Duval at the Bourbon. They do a pretty good job cross dressing. I haven't seen their act though. That just seemed like a waste of my time. Not my kind of bar.
I have never seen the show at 801 Bourbon but I remember taking some photos outside one afternoon and night. To this day I have to wonder if the young man that was walking down the street and who posed with the ladies realized they were both cross dressers:
It pays to keep an open mind. We have at least two transgendered inmates here on ADVRider who are both my friends on Facebook, and I have probably accidentally walked into gay or transgendered bars about 4-5 times in my life and at least two of those times were in Mexico. :huh:eek1
I have absolutely no problem with the folks at 801 Bourbon. I just prefer drinking at Vino on Duval or at Joes Tap Room or if I want lousy service I go to the Green Parrot.
I thought you were getting your info from the Mayans . . . aren't they the ones who told you I have nothing to worry about?
Hey MikeMike or anyone else that knows!
What is the living conditions, Pros and Cons of Tampico, MX? Looking for a place with year round moderate temperatures, plus close to the border. Tampico looks pretty good by the Weather Channel info. Of course, what are all of the other conditions like. I have ridden through the town several years ago and remember a combination of good/orderly locations and some not so good and at times in close proximity to each other. I think that I also saw some Suzuki DL650s being used as police motos. Thanks!
Lousy service. Good music sometimes. That's always been my experience with the Green Parrot but that is indeed a popular place.
I used to really enjoy Maragaritaville Key West but that was years ago. Now it's overcrowded most of the time and much of their really good food has vanished from the menu. Now Margaritaville New Orleans is the only Margaritaville that goes back to the early days of being a small bar with good music and good food.
With almost 300 bars on an island 2 miles x 3 miles there is plenty of variety. I guess that the closest thing that I have found to a laid back watering hole is Capt. Tony's when the tourists have left.
I have been to Tampico a few times and really enjoyed it. All of my tour books said that the beaches were lousy but the dirty little secret is that in the last few years some nice resorts have been built there. Downtown has two vibrant walking shopping areas near each other, and several town squares. It's probably a little warmer there than just "moderate" - when you cross the river you are getting into the coffee and banana plantation areas and it's quite hot in the summer in Veracruz.
Hey, PJ, one of my relatives owns and/or operates a bar down in KW.
Could you please let me know the next time you head down there so I can forward them a mug shot and warn them appropriately?
I haven't decided whether I should warn them to stock up or lock the doors.
'Nuff said about that.
I like Tampico, but I like Veracruz better. However, since distance to the border is important to you, Tampico would be a better fit. I wouldn't really consider summer temps moderate, though.
I am positively ebullient over your appreciation of my use of "effusive"!
Never knew you Aussies actually spoke real English. Quite auspicious meeting you Trev. My knowledge of your culture has expanded.
Planning to sneak over to Santa Rosalia from Guaymas at the end of January then head north to AZ. I'll probably stay south of the border to return home to Banamichi. Keeping the fingers crossed for calm and clear weather for the crossing.
