An alternate route part II : A wet and muddy affair

So here is a continuation of my plight to avoid the federali checkpoint. See if you can spot the melons. 


  1. What kind of tires were you running on the bike?

    Yeah, 800 pounds is going to be a bit rough in that mud, and I learned the same lesson myself a couple of times. I'm glad it worked out for you.

  2. I believe they were a set of off-road oriented Kenda's. I had them mounted just prior to crossing the border. The price was right, however, the wear characteristics left something to be desired, and I had to replace them in southern Ecuador.
