Splatter fest!

Man... Its really been a sweet run. I don´t even know where to begin. Hence the splatter fest. theme! This posting is all over it self. Like a sesame street activity. I´ll let you match the picture to the blurbs.


In Oaxaca we met Wolf and Javier. Two other cyclists mobing about sothern mexico and Guatamala. Together we rode the fantasticly windy, potholed old road to Perto Escondito. The first cyclists we´ve ridden with in Mexico and I think its mutual that it was a damn good time! Cheers and Prost! Good riding with you guys! Take care!



In Zipolite we ran into our friends from the Huasteca (The ones we snuck into ¨the bridge of god¨with) and had some cold beers and loungy beach time.

Fresh water streams, road side mezcal stands, goarging feast, sweet camp spots, epic moutain climbs and breath vomiting vistas! FOMO fits prevail! Its all there all the time. Just going on. Makes me itch all over and feel faint yet twitchy





Tucked into A corner of Peurto Escondito you can find: Bicitodo/Bike Center. At first it doesent look any different than any other simple bike shop. But get inside and Meet Tello and every thing changes! He is an extremely friendly guy who has had a long career of bicycle mechanics and racing. He also leads tours into the surrounding mtns., speaks perfect english and is up on current and high end parts. If you are touring and need service, dont even go to the other shops and have them shrug at your problem while they wrench a tire off a rim with a claw hammer. Just go see Tello at the bike center!





Oh yea... We found the Ocean




We had been on the coast for about a week and still had not found ourselves the hidden beach cove we had been looking forward to. South of puerto Angel we took a random turn down a dirt road that plummeted us back shore side. Though it felt like it, we wern´t completly alone at this beautiful little paradise. There was a small ritzy hotel on the far side of the cove. Kelly went over to just let them know we would be camped on the other side. They said¨"There is No camping, sorry". Well, all beaches in Mexico are Federal propperty which means public. We stayed two nights telling each other "No camping".

















Were off now to see about helping out some baby sea turtles make it into the big salty.

  1. Great post thank you for sharing this I like it so much this post. Give me more information about Splatter fest DO chop fruits, vegetables, breads, or meats before guests arrive? Season and place raw meats, chicken, and food on separate plates to avoid cross contamination. Have bite-sized morsels cumulus on pretty platters so guests will begin cookery.Do not serve 3 courses of fondue. Target starter, main dish, or dessert. Fondue with cubed bread, sliced apples and steamed veggies makes a satisfying initial course or a light-weight meal. A meat and food fondue turns a normal meal into a festal celebration. And a fondue could be a decadent end to a special meal. Scroll down for party menus that feature fondue in one in every of the courses.
    DO skewer raw meats utterly through the fondue fork so the tines show through in doing thus; you will keep the meat from projected to rock bottom of the pot.Do not eat off the fondue fork. Not solely is it unhealthful; however you would possibly burn your mouth. Have dinner forks handy so folks will use the fondue forks primarily for cookery and transferring food to their plates. DO prepare cheese or fondue on your stovetop before transferring the pot to the burner. For meat fondues, heat oil or broth on the stove before setting the pot on the burner. (The fuel within the burner can maintain a homogenous temperature for cookery however isn't as effective because the stove prime for heating liquids and melting solids. Do not leave a pot of hot oil or broth unattended. Think about meat and food fondue for a leisurely, sit-down strike dinner.DO stir the fondue. Frequent stirring keeps the fondue sleek and prevents hot spots within the pan. thank you so much I’m waiting for your next blog...
