    I think a lot of people will realize this in the next four years, some sooner than later. I think there will be many "surprises" from Obama. Time to jump off this soap box before I get too fired up.

    Nice RR LA, keep 'er comin'!:clap

    Definitely. I made the comment that I probably haven't seen as many stars throughout my lifetime as I did the first night we camped. If the moon wasn't out that night, the sight would have been better.:nod

    The images from your last set of photos remind me of the old western movies I love to watch, only the horse is of a different color. Have you had any problems getting quality water? How far between gas stations on average?

    This was taken directly downstream of a ranch. We used to water for cooking and cleaning... none of us got sick.

    As far as finding water? Bienvidas farmacias (Goodlife Pharmacy) has a nice selection of .5ltr to 1.5ltr bottles. Mexico isnt unlike the US, you can get purified bottled water at most gas stations. Remote locations... you're better off drinking cokes or beer... "No tenemos agua," was the common response.


    Gasolina. We filled up every 80 miles or so. 109 was the farthest we went without gas, but that was hwy... gas could be found though. Can be done as frequently as 50miles if you ask around a little.

    Pumps like the US. Pumps out of large barrels. Pumped into buckets and then gravity fed into your bike. We got it all.

    Thanks for the info. I am planning my own trip for the coming fall. I need to get away from Obama's America for a little while. I was planning on bringing a good purifier and maybe a good bottle of wine in case the cork is needed.

    I need to make another trip into the bayou country. Cajun food is my favorite and I met some really fine cajon girls when I last visited.

    We went to sleep with full bellies and stary skies and awoke to a beautiful sunrise and growling stomaches. Oatmeal cooked with filtered cow poo water.

    This morning we headout to Galeana to get gasahol and then head south to Real de Catorce. A lot of hwy today... I whined , bitched and moaned about it. Straight roads. Knobbies. Windshield strapped to the back.

    In Galeana, we stopped at a farmacia and we were promptly attacked by a pack of wild chihuahuas.

    Remember my experience with the prickley pear???

    I learned two new words this day. "Ferrateria" and "Guantes" . The gloves are reminiscent of Michael Jackson's stylin gloves. Or maybe I am really too young to remember?

    Head south out of Galeana.

    Take in the wildlife.

    South of town you can get a good view of Cerro Potosi. Look closely you can see God's golfball. Not Allah's golfball, we're in Mexico, and Mexicans are Catholic.

    We were instant celebrities. Never before had they seen this many gringos pass through their town on motos.
    The senor with the white hat... has worked in Arkansas and Minnesota.

    While on the hwy, I noticed the steeple of an iglesia.

    [​IMG]

    There was a big compound here. The church and several side buildings. I'm guessing a town was formed here. Maybe a nunastary or munkastary.

    Whatever it was, it is in ruins now.

    [​IMG]The silt was a few inches deep here.

    Replace our motorbikes and helmets with horses and hats... listen to the wind blowing through the trees... if only the surroundings could magically change to the old days. Then you realize you are on a motorcycle adventure in Mexico.

    Yah, im a bit of a survivalist.... unfortunately the tidbit of info on prickley pears didnt come the the surface of my mind until after I started pulling the spines out of my fingers. Of course I will always remember now. Oh and we dont have prickley pears in Louisiana.

    I'm adding a HID headlight to my bike. Be back later.

    Man! I have GOT to get me one of them little bitty legless Mexicans! But I'd turn him around so he could see where we're goin' instead of lookin' at my big old beer belly all day.
