Re: Crashing Our Way Through Mexico - The Furious Five Draw First Blood

After closely examining the 2017 calendar and my vacation balance I picked up the phone and called JT.

Me: Hey, let's go ride Mexico over the Labor Day weekend.
JT: Okay.

And with that brief conversation we began drafting plans for our ride. I wanted to experience some roads south of Galeana that I had always intended to ride but just hadn't gotten around to. JT was game, so we invited three others (Doug, Ken, and Zeke) and earnestly began our preparations.

I drew up some tracks and sent them to JT for review and discussion. After a few routing suggestions we reached agreement. We had a plan and a route - and my excitement level began to rise.

I love riding in Mexico. It's muy sabroso.



And even more, I love exploring new roads in Mexico. There are roads in those mountains I haven't ridden yet and they are calling to me...


Labor Day weekend couldn't arrive quick enough.

Due to the logistics of the situation, JT, Ken, and I travelled together from Austin to Mission on Thursday evening. I had to work half a day on Friday but am fortunate at times to be able to work from anywhere as long as I have a phone and an internet connection. We decided to preposition ourselves in Mission, TX on Thursday evening so that when I finished work mid-day on Friday we could immediately depart for Galeana and get in an extra half-day of riding.

Doug and Zeke would be leaving Texas on Saturday morning and joining us in Galeana that evening.

After our arrival in Mission on Thursday, we sought out a local establishment for nourishment and refreshing adult beverages. Luckily, this place had a special on beer. What a deal!


At about 1pm on Friday, the Tequila Three suited up and headed off on an adventure.

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Yeah, these guys are "Estupidos." I've heard that down south, you can get your arm chopped off, sliced, fried and made into "Taquitos Brazeros."
