Adam writes on 2013.12.28: We are sitting in the lounge of our hotel in Tapachula, Chiapas, Mexico closing up on our visit through Mexico and preparing to move on to Guatemala. This includes updating the GPS units with updated maps based on the Open Street Map (OSM) project. Jenn’s older GPS only accepts one auxiliary […]

Exit Puerto Escondido, onwards to Chiapa...
Adam writes on 2013-12-26: So here we are outside of Salina Cruz, Oaxaca (roughly pronounced Oh-a-ha-ca) in another love motel. This one is almost charming and seems quite small. Larger and more expensive ones in the area have a lot more flash with sort of an art deco theme, fancy walls, and illusive names. Ours […]

Jenn writes on 2013-12-24: Merry Christmas Eve from Puerto Escondido, MX! Although it is not what we are used to for celebrating the holidays (no snow, family, or massive amounts of Christmas goodies), Christmas on the beach seems to be a pretty good place to spend the holiday. I can’t say that I am missing […]
Ferrying from La Paz to the mainland, ev...
Adam writes on 2013-12-17: I am writing from La Manzanilla, Jalisco. Internet access has been sketchy for the last couple of days. We are camping under a palapa on the sand amongst coconut palms. While rustic, the campsite is quite nice with cool showers, and add your own water toilets. That said, we are right […]
Adam writes on 2013-12-05: We are presently in Ensenada, Baja California. And in the middle of a cold spell. Sounds like deja vu, doesn’t it? The last days at John’s in Vail, it started to cool off, especially in the evening, and after arriving in El Centro, California last night, by dusk we found ourselves […]
Adam writes on 2013-12-03: We are currently enjoying the warm, sunny weather in Vail, Arizona. We arrived here three days ago, having stayed one night in Fort Stockton, Texas and two nights in Los Cruces, New Mexico. Fort Stockton was simply a stop for us, and being a sort of transit location, hoteliers are able […]
A Kempner Kristmas
Adam writes on 2013-11-27: Sorry for the misleading post title but it did grab your attention, didn’t it? The good news is that “Xmas came early” and Millie, Jenn’s DR650, is fixed! We won’t need to decorate the trailer with tinsel after all! Patient readers, we are tired from a long day of riding through […]
Bacon Ranch Road, Red Paper Wasps and Ho...
Jenn writes on 2013-11-21: Today as I look out of the window of the “Villa” (read: toyhauler) upon clear blue and sunny skies, I can’t help but feel forever grateful to Erik and Kaye for offering us a place to stay while we wait for parts to arrive in order to repair my bike. Not […]
Kamped Out In Kempner
AT writes on 2013-11-12: With San Angelo behind us, we are currently safe and sound and staying with Erik and Kaye in Kempner, Texas. Our hosts generously offered up the comfort of their toyhauler camper/trailer for the duration of our stay. We arrived here last Monday with the help and good will of the Texas […]
Smack dab in the middle of Tejas.
Adam writes on 2013-11-02: Greetings! We are currently held up in San Angelo, Texas. This is fairly small town just over 200 miles from the Fort Worth/Dallas region, roughly 200 miles from Austin, and still quite far from El Paso. San Angelo is a little off the beaten path, or certainly the interstate. We ended […]
