Expenses to Date

It is not all fun and games.  I spent today doing taxes.  It gave me an opportunity to check how we were doing as far as expenses go.  We are a hair above our average monthly budget for the whole trip, but it has been dropping since we got into Mexico.  I expect it to Read More

(Sombrerete to Zacatecas)

*Authors note:  It has been brought to my attention that sometimes I make sweeping generalizations about large swaths of people and that this is often considered offensive.  This is going to be one of those posts.  I would like to point out that I make a conscious effort to indiscriminately insult people.  If you were Read More


1/10/19 – 1/16/19 *Note: After Baja Soph and I decided to pursue different routes for a couple of weeks.  We took the ferry back to Mazatlan and she caught the bus to Guadalajara while I decided to ride the Espinazo del Diablo to Durango.  I have submitted the posting for this section to another blog Read More


This is a post to say that I decided to take a week or two off from posting.  Tomorrow I will be leaving Mazatlan and heading for Espinazo del Diablo, AKA The Devils Spine.  Soph will be jumping the bus to Guadalajara to meet a friend and we will meet back up in 2 weeks Read More

La Paz to Todos Los Santos

12/18 – 12/23 “What is time?” “I don’t know Alex.” “Well it ends when you die.” “That’s great.” “Have you thought much about it?

12/11 – 12/16 Everyone tells you to stay out of Sinoloa. Supposedly, it is one of the major cartel havens. For various reasons we found ourselves in Mazatlan, the largest city in the state. There, on Saturday morning, I sat with a cold blade held up against my throat. The man in front of me Read More

Ya lo chupo el diablo

12/5 – 12/10 “A jijue…..” “A jijue……” “No.  Is more in your throat.  Ah jijue.” “Ah jijue.”  It sounded like I was coercing phlegm. “Ahhh mui bien, now try it all.  A jijue su chigada madre.” “A jijue su chigada madre.” “Mui bien, now you know Hermosillo slang.” “What does it mean?” “It’s kind of Read More

Highway 89….. Sonora

11/30 – 12/5 I stood in the little grocery store in Arizpe watching them try my debit card again and again.  I knew it wasn’t going to work.  I gave them my credit card, but I knew that wouldn’t work either.  We had seven hundred pesos, about $35, on us.  That was enough money for Read More

Sports drinks for gamers

11/25 – 11/29 I didn’t sleep much the night of the twenty fifth.  I like to think that it had something to do with Mexico on the horizon, but more likely it was that last glass of whiskey that I had forced down.  Still, I made the most of the rare bout of insomnia and Read More
