Mexico… dodge a bullet and keep going…

Posted: October 27, 2010 in Mexico

So we did it, we finally crossed into Mexico! After a few nights of dodging bullets and running from the cartel, I finally found a seat under a shed with some homeless guys and am able to write this. What they say on the news is nothing compared to what is really happening here. The second you cross the border, you hear gun shots from the left, some from the right and hopefully none from right in front of you. You step on the throttle and hope they miss you. You hear shots, ride the deserted streets from town to town and hope the helmet will be tough enough against a bullet.

If the above sounded horrifying to you, then chances are you are a media bag. What is a media bag? A person who takes what the media gives him\her and bags it all up in a big pile of shit! Seriously, you are what you believe in!

People here are really nice, the weather is somewhat warm and you have more chances of getting shot in LA, San Diego or any other part of the US than in Mexico. So yes, for all of you sitting in front of the “NEWS”, either on the internet, in front of the TV or any other brain washing piece of crap propaganda, I invented a new name for you, Media Bag!

So now for some pictures… the internet here is pretty slow as we are camping in the RV parking lot of a hotel for 6$ a person a night, so if I can get a couple of pix through, it will be great…

First campground:

KLR 650 Bike Trip Mexico 5

Chef Yosh and chef Evin cooking our feast:

Sea food cocktail, the best thing ever! About 5$ and it has tons of fresh raw seafood in it. Mexican sushi I guess:

Eating at a roadside place… while dodging bullets:

      lol, yes, we met at the San Diego hostel. Did you make it to San Fran yet? And how you liking it?

      • Adam says:

        Yeah spent 5 days there – very cool city. Arrived at Yosemite yesterday evening – loving the wilderness. Keep the pictures coming man.

        lol, we spent the past 5 days or so camping in the desert and mountains. Kinda feels nice to be in a city again. La Paz is pretty sweet. We’re gonna stay here till Tuesday.

    Ha!!! Those Mexican chicks don’t stand a chance!!!!
    Who rides which bike? That sea food cocktail looks sick 😉

    • pimptrix says:

      Yosh rides the DR650 and we call him the light weight. His bike all packed up weights about half of mine all packed up. The guy is crazy efficient! Evin rides the other KLR 650. He is also from AB. I’ll post up how we met.

    we got robbed, in the middle of the capitol of greece – by a mexican looking pakistany. and the news didnt warn us that was gonna happen!

    Why are mexicans and basketball players a like?

    they both run jump shoot and steal.

    as far as the “mamasitas” are concerned, stay away from the bean bags – we all know the negative results of that kind of meal….you’ll be shitting more than green cards!

    • pimptrix says:

      lol, hope the guy didn’t get away with too much?!

      Here, the Baja is super nice and safe. People are also really friendly. I wish I knew everything they say, but it will come in time. I hear on the main land things are a bit different, but still not as bad. All this media crap is sure hurting business here though, all the campgrounds and hotels are empty. When they see customers, their eyes light up. We stayed at 2 campground resorts up to now where we were the only campers. By resorts, I mean the camping sites had electricity and running water, hot showers, and about 100 or so campsites per campground…. pretty much everything is empty…

    Thanks for telling the reality of Mexico. I drove the Baja last Christmas, slept on the beaches and loved the entire trip. I always feel safe in Mexico. Those “Media bags” miss out on the world because they will drink the Kool Aid that is given to them. By the way We would love for you to share your stories and adventures while in Mexico at http://www.MexicoOnline.com we need people like you telling how it really is.

      Thanks Steve! I’m almost done with Mexico and really loved it here! If I didn’t have to be in San Salvador soon I’d stay in Mexico a couple more weeks. I’m already on many forums, but if you would like you can copy paste my post onto MexicoOnline. 🙂

      Cheers,
      Stefan
