Today's Epic Ride looks to be epically wet. It has been pouring since before dawn here in Parral. I'm hoping to make my way south to Durango and Posada San Agustin but I'm in no hurry to get soaked. Planning the route south, I read there was an alternative to Mex 24 the whole way where you exit toward Santa Maria Del Oro and end up on Mex 23, which is supposedly a new, empty road that loops west then back to Mex 24 north of Durango. Would any of you Mexico veterans take that alternate in pouring rain?
