    Modesta likes to travel and enjoys experiencing new things, but seeing this sign when we return always makes her very happy! Guerrero is the state where we live part of the time and is where she was born and raised along with her family and children.

    A Modesta le gusta viajar y le gusta experimentar cosas nuevas, ¡pero ver este letrero cuando volvemos siempre la hace muy feliz! Guerrero es el estado donde vivimos parte del tiempo y es el lugar donde nació y se crió junto con su familia y sus hijos.

    We were gone 55 days on this trip. We were at family or friends house for 22 of the days and in hotels the other 32 days. According to the moto odometer we traveled 11,211 miles or 18,042 kilometers. We will make a quick trip to Mississippi/Texas in the car the first couple weeks of December. The next scheduled moto trip begins December 27. We will be touring Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama.

    A little information I left out of the report for last Ride. We visited 15 US states on this ride, which brings the states in which Modesta has traveled to 16. We also visited 5 Pueblo Magicos in Mexico, which brings our today visited to 55. There are currently approximately 112 Pueblo Magicos in Mexico.

    Un poco de información que dejé fuera del informe para el último viaje. Visitamos 15 estados de Estados Unidos en este viaje, que lleva a los estados en los que Modesta ha viajado a 16. También visitamos 5 Pueblo Mágicos en México, lo que lleva nuestro visitado hoy a 55. Actualmente hay aproximadamente 112 Pueblo Mágicos en México.

    We are on the road in the USA, but we are in the car, so I have not posted anything here. I have put a bit on my Facebook. We will return to Mexico the 15th or so and be headed toward Panama Dec 28. When are y'all returning to Iguala?

    I don’t think we will be back in Iguala for a couple of years. We are heading to MxCd on the 30th and we will be in the mission training center there on Jan 2 for a week or so then we’re headed to San Fernado Valley Cal. For a year and a half. So I think it will be close to 2 years before we are back. We will miss having lunch with you guys at the gira sol by the lake. I really like that place.

    Well the count down is getting down to give or take three week awesome. My better half took a heck of a setback so pretty much got me and bike in moth balls been I guess almost three weeks. So my friend and Mode I’m looking forward to following your next great adventure coming up soon. If I got it right your in the States in a car that’s good heck it snowed in Corpus here in south Texas. But just wanted to say hi to you two and have a good one. You’ll be in my thoughts and prayers for and on your next trip. Dile a Modesta Feliz Navidad y Feliz Año Nuevo. Dios los bendiga a los dos.

    We returned yesterday from an eighteen day, 4,500 mile trip to the USA. BUT IT WAS IN THE CAR, SO NO REPORT. Other than I want to add that we visited five more Pueblo Magicos during the trip. Included was Aculco, Mexico; Jalpa, León, Gto.; Linares, Nuevo Leon; Santiago, N/Leon; and Ciudad Mier, Tamp. We enjoyed Aculco the most, but did not stay the night. It is o our normal route traveling to the USA, so we will pan to stay over a night there in the future. We have now been to 60 of the Pueblo Magicos.

    We will be headed out on the moto for Panama Dec 28!
