    Do it. I drove there in my pickup truck in 1998 and if I had the time I would ride there in a heartbeat.

    p59greene: When are you going? Hopefully, not until spring when they rebuild Yucatan

    Statdawg provided you with some excellent resources, the same data bases that I use for my trips to Mexico. For your information, Ruben Tenorio's e-mail address is rtenorio@prodigy.net.mx and he is a wonderful gentleman that will assist you.

    Burnszilla shares my sentiment that I'd ride there in a heartbeat, but I hope that you aren't planning on riding down until April. The storm ravaging the Yucatan has literally wiped out the Mexican State of Tabasco - it'll take 4 months to rebuild.

    The recent notice out of Villahermosa really caught my attention, the crocodiles have swum to the zocalo in ciudad centro and are attacking livestock and people.

    I just returned from Barrancas del Cobre in Chihuahua and forded the Rio Urique a number of times; only trucha in that stream, imagine a crocodile coming at you!

    No one said we can't eat the crocodiles! They're tasty. Really, and fried grasshoppers and street food (as long as it's piping hot).
