I added you, with what little info I had in my feeble brain. Mark W, aka Subcomm, with $2,000 for hookers and blow, LOL. If you want to click the link and put in a bit more info, here it is again, just make a new entry.

If you are thinking about the history of the region, why not take in Bogart's 1948 movie, filmed in the Sierra Madre region, and Tampico maybe. It's actually quite good. Here is a teaser:

Re: 2015 MexTrek, Oct 15 - 18th, Galeana, Mexico

One item I've had my eye on for a couple of years, since the last Mextrek actually, was a rotopax 1 gallon extra fuel container. Finally got around to researching, and while not cheap, an extra gallon;

securely mounted;

for around $100 seems like a deal compared to an oversize gas tank. The newer rotopax also have one of the spill proof spouts that hides in the can till you reverse it to pour. Nice touch, Mr. EPA.

Very much looking forward to this trip! I'll be coming down on a KLR from Fort Worth on Tuesday, with an overnight in the hill country (TBD where). Can easily meet up with people coming from DFW or the Austin area and ride to McAllen if anyone is interested.

So for the 21 confirmed, I am going to order 30 of Richard's guidebooks and start sending them your way.

You are our only chance at Espanol - without you, no party to crash.

I am slowly making headway. I know at least 12 verbs and 200 nouns. With 20 hours of hungover class under my belt I am primed and ready, haha.

1st point of order; due to extenuating circumstances (namely work & a rare visit from an old friend in ailing health) I will not be able to join this little jaunt. October is often a stretch for me so you old farts go on & have a great time and send pics so I can be consumed by jealousy.
