Dantesdame asked me to post up her public SPOT link so you can follow her Copper Canyon trip in real time!  


She's got a loop planned that should bring her back to California by this weekend.

Dante's more trusting than I am, letting the entire internet know exactly where she is. Lol  The SPOT zooms in pretty darn close (Peter could tell which specific campsite I was camped in on my cross country trip).

Don't worry...few in Mexico have teh intarwebs, and most Americans are too scared to go to Mexico just to bow down and worship Dante's greatness.   Bigsmile

I know what you mean Poof.  

Becky and her mom are headed for the U.K. in April and taking a Spot device with them.  The thinking is that that way I can follow their route.  It is intended to give me some peace of mind but in reality kind of creeps me out.  Too much information.  A bit too "Big Brotheresque."   EEK!

Colleen dropped by on Friday night and spent the night at the "House of K".  A great time was had by all!  More importantly, we sent her off via Palomar and Borrego Springs to see some flowers and had a grand ol' time.

Go Dante Go!

Hola mi amigos!!!

Much to my dismay, this trip will not be all that it should have been. Why? Because I am apparently a freakin´Rain God. I crossed the border into Mexico and before the day is out it´s raining and it hasn´t stopped since. That was Sunday and now it´s Tuesday. Dammitall! The road to Batopilos (where I ·really· wanted to go is half paved, half dirt. No problem, except that the dirt part is now all slimy mud. Sure, I could probably slide my way down, but how would I get back up???  Anyway, I´m here in Creel for the rest of the day. Tomorrow I head for the coast, maybe there´s some sunshine over there??



As for¨"Spot" and "trust" - anyone who´s fool enough to follow me in this deluge is more insane than I am.  Embarassment
