    The next morning another great sunrise, but somebody parked their bike right in front of my tent.

    Gonzaga was an interesting little out of the way place, again you my not find gas or civilization but rest assured there is alway cold beer and coca-cola

    As you can see Sunshine an Al wasted no time on procuring a Cold Pacifico to wash down the dust
    [​IMG]

    ...and as the rest of the group filter in we all indulge in local barley pop flavors

    Hail, hail the gangs all here
    [​IMG]

    after a few cool ones we head over to our beach front domicles

    Sunshine was so happy she stood up on Pat's beemer to shout with joy which pretty much was how we all felt. Al has that picture.

    Judging from the number of bottles on the table not to mention the ones we had over at the tienda, mesmerized is an understatement!:evil :jkam :beer

    It was the ignorant part that didn't sit well with me. I like to call it naivety. And it has led to some great adventures. I stole the first quote from my climbing partners helmet. Its always a good reminder!

    I haven't seen a photo with Al flat on his back - his bike up-side down - the Mexican Riot Squad - a flat tire - an oil puddle - a hole in a casing - or an over night rushed wedding cermony at gun-point :lol3

    Did a different Al show up ? :D - Sharon fill us in on the details, and don't hold back, he can take it :D

    Great pix and text everyone - keep them coming.
