Hola from the Yucatan Peninsula!

I live in Campeche. It is on the Western side of the Yucatan Peninsula. I have lived here for almost 4 years. My adventures in Mexico is pretty much limited to the pennisula. For those adventurous troopers I would be happy to share information regarding this area.

Ride safe and often.

Excellente, Matt. Take the first step...pick a date, 2010, 2011, etc. The rest will happen. But without the first step, it is only a dream.

Ride safe and often.

saludos,

Pako

Hola Pako; glad to see that you got the sub-forum up and running. Know little about the Yucatan peninsula so whatever you choose to share is welcome. If you get off-road down there curious about your choice of tires. Also how did Harmonicamoon come about? :-)

Hola Pako. Some friends and I were in your area a couple of summers ago on the way to Chichen Itza. What a wonderful area in which you live! We ended up taking the quota around your city because we spent too much time in Lake Catemaco.

Since crashbox is looking for pictures, here is one along the gulf coast near where you live. :mrgreen:

If they ever start up the Tampa, Florida to Yucatan Ferry again I'll come visit. Not adventurous enough to go the "long way round"


Been just about everywhere, and most places twice.....But not nearly as many places as pinkman

In a hundred years..... All new people

Well, I'm not adventurous enough to go it alone. Maybe we should head over together sometime!

I too wish they would bring the ferry back, but I'm not holding my breath.

Greg, at my advanced age, the only way I would take that ride, is with an industrial strength support caravan.

I will die before I tour in a car, but now my definition of adventure is riding through Waldo at 5 over and my definition of roughing it is suffering scratchy motel towels.

Ah youth... 36 years ago my wife and I spent 9 months on the road, two up, camping every night, in snow and desert heat and loved every minute. Now... not so much



Just strap on the pots and pans and we are good to go.

You know, I would love to see this photo side-by-side with one from this year, taken in a similar environment, posed roughly the same way. Wouldn't that be a testimony?
