have you ever been to baja and seen the class 11's? i go every year, and while it's impressive what they do, it's not really entertaining.
The DE I took my checkride with in McAllen Tx had a business flying DC3s in and out of Mexico. Hauled car parts or so he said. This was back in 1998, don't know if he's still there.
i agree, they come in quite handy!
I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say you've never driven through mexico. i have, and i see plenty of good options. :beer:
just watched the arizona episode. so many facepalms, so little time! i know it's just dumb entertainment, but for someone from the area, it was painful to watch on so many levels. :thumbdown:
89a doesn't go to phoenix. besides, that's a horribly boring drive, i wouldn't bother. ;):P

welcome to 7 months ago! :P
oh, and after literally millions that have been donated to the families of the crew, a few of the widows are suing for more and more. freaking scumbags. :thumbdown:
i ride a kona unit, few years older with carbon bars/seatpost. it's still a rough ride depending on what terrain you're riding. i saw the most gains by going tubeless with 2.4's at about 25 psi. i'd...
yeah, i like to think so. :)
ugh glamping...i loathe the phrase 'expedition overland' :facepalm:
<-- has a landcruiser w/rtt. :o
uh...no. you can go from deep sand and silt, drive an hour or two north and find yourself in a couple feet of snow. 2wd is great for going to the mall i guess. :pumpkin:
so let's hear your firsthand experience with mexico. waiting.....
do NOT listen to this guy!!!:mad:
i've no advice on tour companies, but i'm down there multiple times a year on my wr or in the landcruiser. baja is a great place, safe, and lots of friendly...
