Helicopter booked for 8:30am tomorrow to get me off this frozen island, then heading your way.
Just went through Douglas a little over a month ago. Hardly even needed to slow down. No bridge, no tolls. About as easy as it gets. Of course I have Mexican plates so you will have to stop and do the paperwork. You could go over the night before and get it done.
I would would have needed to take off last night but didn't have all the pieces fall in place for this go around, will make the trip when I have more time to enjoy.
Drink a few for me and have fun
As we say here in Mexico, Bummer dude.
I guess a few more tamales for me this time.
Nobody back home yet and posting what went on? Work demands kept me away, I really wanted to attend. Next best thing is hearing about it.
I rolled in an hour ago. I'll post up some pix tomorrow. You missed good weather, really incredible food, and kick ass music.
PS: love your avatar!
Mitch and I left Banamichi on Sunday and rode over to Bahia Kino then today to Nogales, presently in Hotel San Carlos Sonoran side of the fence.
The meet up was excellent! two great guitar players and Tom plays a good harp. The food was fabulous and the hot springs were a highlight......the Bacanora tour was shall I say tasty with a traditional lunch of Tamales and about 10 other dishes...a real still in a remote location!!
Great to met all you guys!
Start with the street outside the hotel. More arrived after this pic.
I rode down with my buddy. Him on an Indian. Tom said it's the first Indian at the hotel.
Friday night eats.
Carne asada made with Sonoran beef. If you've never had Sonoran beef, you are missing out.
Some pix from the bacanora still tour.
This is the pit they roast the agave hearts in.
After roasting they get put out to cool.
Then, they're literally beat to a pulp.
The pulp is put into big containers to ferment.
After fermentation, into the still for distillation.
It's cooked in the kegger, then runs down to the 55gal drum that has a coil, and running water to cool the vapors.
And pure bacanora comes out the bottom.
400 pesos a bottle.
I need to post photos and videos that will be later as I'm sorry to report that participants Mark and Judy from Tucson had a getoff in San Carlos yesterday afternoon going to dinner. He was sun blinded turning out of their hotel and hit the median and went down. Judy is ambulatory, Mark is laid up with a broken collarbone and banged up knee and some other injuries that are keeping him horizontal. Nothing super scary, both will be fine but they are awaiting an ambulance ride to Nogales then a transfer to a US ambulance to Tucson.
We are working with the police in Guaymas about getting the multa paid and the bike released to the insurance company. Also rounding up their stuff to get to them.
Our Manager, Vicky, is amazing working to get things sorted out with the police, the hotel, the hospital and all.
I just arrived from sneaking away for a ride with CoolerKing and Chilejack to Sahuaripa last night. When things are set for Mark and Judy I'll write up and post

Hey Tom, I got a pickup truck if the bike needs hauling back to the old pueblo. I'm also retired. I got the time to do it.
I will pass that on Neil. I think the insurance company will handle the bike. It looks like they can get it fixed in the US. I think Vicky got all their stuff rounded up. They should be in Tucson by now or pretty soon.
Probably won't get any updates today
bummer about Mark and Judy I wish them well!
Very sorry to hear about Mark and Vicky, but glad to hear they will recover. Send them my best if you get a chance.
They also fed us at the bacanora tour.
3 kinds of tamales, carne, elote, and spinach. Nopalito salad, roasted pumpkin, (sweet as candy), and other stuff I can't remember.
And chiltipin salsa. Good stuff.
And did I mention, hand made Sonoran tortillas?
I'll lend a hand if needed, I've no schedule either (retired).
It was great to meet you Cal. Glad you made it.
