Galeana

Wanting to ride Galeana area but noticed Tex/Mex stopped going there a few years ago. Problems I'm blissfully unaware of? March seems like a good time. All information is appreciated. Any takers? Thanks ahead of time.

Re: Galeana

Contact Richard via PM and try to talk to him on the phone. He/Milton/JT the usual gang went and returned not too long ago and all was well.

You're going to love Galeana

Re: Galeana

One day Tricepilot will lead a trip down there. Goodness knows I bribed him with enough beer at The Starlight.

More Galeana Travelers:

Trail Boss is Richard's handle

Yesterday I met with a couple heading to Galeana also. I gave them some general Mexico riding tips and we did some tentative route planning and destination selecting.

They're on the road until next April, riding Latin America

In the Galeana area they will be riding the mountain roads and fishing.



Here's their blog, check it out:

Re: Galeana

Here's another rider I talked to with prep info before his Mexico trip that included the Galeana area:



Another rider named John

Find his posts on ADV under jproaster (for coffee roaster ha ha)

He continued on to Chiapas and the coffee finca (farm) area near Guatemala

While in the Galeana area he found a nice place to stay in Santiago

I checked out their blog, looks like they missed out on a lot around galeana, their exploring around the Laguna reminds me of when I went solo looking for el pozo del Gavilán it took me awhile, you got plans for galeana bob?
