    After weaving through burros, cacti, and a few little creek crossings we broke for lunch before making our way out onto a super-highway type road <--this means the road was graded. Your version of "good road" gets recalibrated down here.

    Fish in foil packets is so good! Mmmmmmm. Sure beats spam :puke1

    On to Mimbres...

    There we stopped at the little Tienda for a few cokes. Suckers for eveybody.

    Scott gets a life lesson from an experienced local...

    The start of the dual-sport double dragon had Scott feeling a little tipsy. Perhaps it was the mmm-good cow poo water or the prickly pear. Notice Jim on the road in the back-ground...way down there.

    Only nOObs wear pants that match their jacket.

    Ricardo, I'll let you catch up before I continue the Titty Bar Tour.

    After the DS double dragon we turned uphill to Potosi. This is the bumpiest-friggin road I've ever been on. If Chuck Norris built roads they'd be as tough as this. Nice views though.

    This signs denotes the entrace to the road up Potosi. Apparently the park has lots of trees and atom bomb clouds.

    We came we saw, we looked at God's golf ball. It was cold as we were told, so we headed down to find some warmer ground and lost a crap-load of parts along the way.

    Jim's Dakar somehow ate the little plasticy thing that somehow kept his ass end clean and tailpipes immaculately shiny all week. My KLR spit out 2 bolts. One of which was in the sub-frame. Amazingly of the 7 spare bolts Jim and I had between the two of us we found perfect replacements on the first try. I had to give my KLR some immune system inhibitors so it wouldn't reject the bmw bolt, but I haven't noticed any swelling or redness develop yet. Time will tell.

    Around about 5K feet we pulled off on a little donkey trail and scored a flat little campsite well off the main road. Looks like hte little donkey trail was still well used.

    Scott cooked up some wicked red-beans-n-rice (hunger is the best seasoning) and I put up the tent and whipped us up a fire. After dinner Scott felt the need to slip into "something more comfortable" and so brought out the stylin white converse high-tops. The senoritas didn't have a chance...

    A slight diversion from the normal sequence of things...

    In the states we look for this piece of equipment to do x job or buy another useless piece of plastic to accomplish y task that we likely could have done with the business end of a broken bottle. In Mexico they don't have a lot, so they make do with what they got. So say for instance that you need to haul your crops from town. We saw semi's pilled high with the stuff. We saw spankin new dogdge duallies pullin up the dirt roads.

    We saw overloaded old trucks...

    [​IMG]

    and little bitty loads on hooves....work with what you got.

    Another beautiful winter day. This is the perfect time of year to visit.

    Scott rides off into the sunrise...wait.

    [​IMG]

    Passing through Galeana or guh-leen-us as Jim liked to call it, we headed south on blacktop to Real de Catorce or the Royal 14.

    Potosi loomed over us for much of the morning.

    [​IMG]

    Scott's XR does it's best herding imitation

    [​IMG]

    At last we turned off of 62 onto the road to the tunnel to Real de Catorce. After the ride up Potosi this thing seemed like it was paved. Pretty cool how consistent the stones were for 10+ miles.

    After a moderatly bumpy 30 minute ride we arrived at the tunnel entrace. Scott has the goods on the tunnel.

    Here is where I'm going to sidetrack.... See Richard pee. The only person I have ever seen pee more often was my wife when she was pregnant with our daughter

    These were the only ones that I photographed, but I could have done a whole ride report on "See Richard Pee" . Just change the pose and background.

    [​IMG]
    Richard mentioned the road to R14. Its best when hit at 50mph. 60mph seemed too squirrelly. 50 was good.

    Monkey? what Monkey?

    I went first. Richard Second. Jim last.

    A man's gotta stay hydrated. I emptied my 3 ltr camelback twice a day and then usually a little more in the evenings. I hit the hose pretty hard. Of course I didn't have any "headaches" from the altitude like some people :cry

    Scott and Jim were nice enough to wait while I exposed myself to half of Mexico. Luckily it was the half where no federales or angy senora-mamas were standing.

    Jim was excited about the iglesia.

    Despite what you think. Real de 14 is extremely flat. It really reminds me of Louisiana.


    Dinner time.

    These two, from Austin, didnt know what they were in for when they said to sit with them. No passports or tourist visas.

    Its OK, you hydrated an otherwise extremely arid region of the world. No worries. A guy has to go when a guy has go.


    I didnt have an altitude headache... I had a rough road induced headache that was merely amplified by the altitude. Plus I didnt take ONE sip from my camelback that day.:lol3
