El otro lado

All is well and we are in Creel Mexico! This last week since crossing the border really could not have been much better. Regular afternoon monsoons have helped to keep us cool and rinse the salt crust from our clothes. We've slogged through mud, been chased by dogs,and found ourselves awesomly lost in a maze of high Seirra Madre dirtroads. We have also made some enthusiastic new friends both two and four legged and had to repeatedly mash our goofy gringo grins back into our faces.
Were now preparing our attack on the Copper Canyon and wanting to go multiple directions at once. I'll let you know how it goes.

And then there was... um.. 3?

We have gained a new member to the party. Jez-bra has decided to come along for the ride! He flails a wild cadence and flaps some mad chops! This dude is traveling light! Just stashes all his food in that face hair! The best part is... decisions no longer will be solved with coin tosses or roshambo. We will just simply ask Jezra the answer. Like a true bro he'll stand guard while we sleep and guide our way on the back roads. Locking the bikes is no longer an issue and its real saftey in numbers now! I sure wouldn't mess with a guy with chops like those! All I got to do is share my coffee? No problem man, Thanx for coming along.

A year in the West

The first of many lined up and hacked down. Its been more than a year and here we are: one time zone and two states away. A big loop with lots of in-betweens and some time stayed put. Mandudebro, lots of good times! High mountains, low valleys, burning spans and frozen stints. Were now at 7,072 miles and holding a pungent bucket of memories, An open Tapas bar of mental images and fantastic predicaments. Though really just a good warm up! A scenic testing ground, A divergence loop! Like doing a long slow back flip before the plunge into the real unknown.
In just a few days here this crew goes inter-nashio-nall! We've been hovering at about 120 miles above the Mexico border. Tomorrow morning all systems should be check and this pod is set to leave the mothership! This is not our first galactic mud fight but were stoked and damn ready to run head long and screaming into this infinite arena! Giddy and excited to smash, mangle and nuggie the ever on coming future. The relative is relative, Why? Because. Because. Why?... Were going Pro.

As the first Leg of this ride peels off and we emerge green, incomprehensible and spinning on foreign roadways, I would like to thank a few folks who really helped make this a great year: Kelly, My sisters, Ma, Jack, Jericka, Jazmine, The new Kaden, Dale, Dennis, Chris, Emily, Hubert, Liza, Chris, Lily, Ciano, Samm, Adrian, Gentlemen Chris, Jakon, Craig, Ty and the Bent spoke crew, E.T., Renee Trish, Mike (extra thanx for providing the shop space so I could bring Samu to life) The D5000, Ben, Red Tim, MHT, Mitch, Jezra (a huge thanx for the tec geeky geekness) Adam and Daniel, Selina, 7, Opie, Andy, Kemosabe, Bob, Falon, A really a effin huge Thanx to Jeff, Atlas and the Papa Wheelies for the mad hook up in Durango! and really a lot more that I'll come back to add as my brain spits you out.

A few random pics from the year....

The newer of the 2 Mexicos

Kelly and I have been meandering about southishly on the continental divide. Beautiful forests, rolling brush lands and little towns with super nice folks as the back drop for this rambling love story. We'll soon have larger updates when we get more computer time here in Silver City.
