We plan to leave the Harlingen Wal-Mart at 6:30 AM and cross the border at Los Indios. We will then continue through Valle Hermoso where we can use an ATM to get some Pesos and activate our Wide Band(Banda Ancha) USB Telcel stick. Last year we took MX-180/101 to Ciudad Victoria, the nice freeway MX-83 to MX-81 where the road gets winding to Gonzalez. This year we may turn off MX101 and take MX180 to Gonzalez. This way is not hilly but there is some construction south of Soto and it's a little longer. If things go well we should make it all the way to the Rios Micos west of Ciudad Valles, if not we will find a nice 24 hr Pemex to stay at overnight and then continue to a campsite along the Rios Micos in the morning. I hope to catch up with Tom McEwan and his Mexico kayak trips. Liquid Adventures Mexico Kayak Trips
