Just picked up a brand new 1992 Centurion jersey with the original Avenir tags on it here in Chihuahua. Wow! Will post the pic as soon as I get home. The bike shop, Gato Verde, specializes in fixies and do the critical mass rides here. Great lil shop to expore, Rocco is the owner and in usual Mexican fashion, a true gentleman.

Feliz Navida from Ciudad Chihuahua! Wish we still had our bikes, but hey they were given a good home on Isla Mujeres, Qunitana Roo.

Weather here is around 70 degress and sunnny. Nightime goes down to right at frezzing. Love the climate and the people.

Viva Chihuahua!

They should still be in the AFC and have to play against the Broncettes! Good luck with that possible schedule you mention...

 This pic is from our 2011 trip to La Grande and area. If you ever drive on Interstate 84, get off onto the side roads and drive the back way into La Grande, a much nicer way of seeing the Blue Mountains than at 70 mph on the freeway.

The inner workings of Tepic's shops. Here are old C30-7s sitting idle back in 2009 awaiting their fate.

This pic I took a few years back while visiting Chihuahua's western half.
 
Here's FXE 2017 bringing the eastbound Chepe Primera into Creel, Chihuahua in September 2009. Four units on this run, an obvious power move to get a four-axle to Cd. Chihuahhua

The third unit in our train. VIA's F40 units have their own specially modified section for HEP unlike their American siblings.

Christmas is winding down here at the BW MIrador in Chihuahua. One of the Mexican families three doors down from us has two daughters and a son who of course were giddy with joy over the presents they recieved.

The eldest hija got a brand new purple bike, the second oldest hija had a new skateboard, and the youngest, their son, a remote controlled Cat front end loader.

Well, by 2pm the handlebars were loose on the bike, and the daughter wanted nothing to do with it, and the batteries in the remote controlled Cat loader were close to dying.

Couldnt do anything about the batteries, but I promptly stopped the boy from riding the bike, grabbed my crescent wrench and proceeded to tighten the bars and give it a quick safety check. As soon as that was done, the elder sister immediately reclaimed her bike by kicking her little brother off of it, and she really started to pick up some speed! Nice to know my bike mechanic skills all still useful after all these years.

The tools were for reassembling the bikes once we got onto Isla Mujeres. Heck, we both understand the daily ferry routine since we both live on islands. But this was so much fun in a different sort of way, and now a full 1500 miles or more later even without the bikes they came in handy! Next stop, El Paso!

Why did Google have to go and screw up Youtube?! My "liked" videos are gone now with the new format. Thanks for nothing Google, you aren't as smart as you guys think you are.

I would rather shape the world, than be shaped by it... Just saying. :)

A pic I took in Cd. Zacatecas near the Teleferico. My first thought was that would be a halfway decent tatoo choice with the fourhands thing going on.

Here's what a front hub looks like after an errant forklift tried to take out my '89 Ibis TrialsComp a few years back.

Needless to say, the hub has now been recycled, and I'm working on building a new matching replacement fork as soon as I find the appropriate legs from a supplier.
