Mazatlán to Guadalajara

After spending some more time in Mazatlan, I hit the road on my way to Mexico D.F.  I spent a few hours on the beach on the way in Teacapan, drinking some coconut water from one I picked up in the supermercado. The road to San Blas definitely reminded me that I am now in… Read More »


Leaving Baja was tough.  I told myself that I would have plenty of time to relax and enjoy myself during the trip.  No schedules, no need to look at a calendar, know what day it is, or even what time it is….. you get the picture…. none of the worries of a ‘normal’ life.  However,… Read More »

What if they built a tourist destination and nobody came?

Customs & Border Protection Goons

Earlier this afternoon, I entered into the Lukeville border crossing on the way into Mexico headed to Rocky Point. As I pulled up to the agent, he asked the basic questions that I’ve faced each time in the past. This time however, was much different–he asked me to pull over. They detained me and escorted… Read More »
