This is Bistek al la Mexicana a common dish found many places. There are several places I get this some better than others but all real decent! Kind of a tomato based sauce with generally pretty tender pieces of beef and a fair amount of it. The rice is pretty generic but the frijoles can be something else. This also includes as many fresh made in front of you tortillas you want and brought to you with a smile. Something like this costs around 50-60 pesos or $3. The squeezed as you watch orange juice is 20 and brings the price up a bit but worth it. Nothing in the States I've ever had compares to this not even close plus it'll cost 7-10 smacks. I don't know what I'm going to eat when I return. It will be an adjustment as I do this so much that is go into Puerto Vallarta on the south side and have me a excellent lunch with "real" Mexican food not the slop I get back there. I do not plan on eating out much at all only at maybe three select places. Pricey yes but worth it because it's so good. I threw away so much money last summer eating way overpriced shitty food. Several times the food got thrown away as well. The whole of Mexico is an eating machine I tell you. I'm gonna miss this.

I feel good and and think the higher temps and humidity contributes to that. It's the same every time. After a month or two you realize and say " Hey I feel pretty damn good!"

Just as important I believe the food made fresh with wholesome fresh ingredients as well contributes to that. Get off the bus in town the food smells everywhere make me hungry just like that.


One Fly Go For Ride

Yea-I hardly ever get to ride any distance with anybody but myself so this is a bit of a treat. A bud and I are going to Grand Junction where he is buying one of these. A 1946 model the 66th produced for the public.

Sit back- get loaded-look for pictures and watch the movie out the window on roads and places not seen for a number of years. Find a decent place to stay and have some decent chop for a change something that's been lacking around here. YES!!


  1. Excellent! Look forward to hearing about it. I hope your putting it on a trailer or something this time of year. If not dress warm and bring a bottle!

  2. Don't know how far the trip is, but if you're gonna ride on that thing you might want to find yourself a kidney belt.

  3. jeg beat me to it, get ya a pillow to put under yer ass.

    I do believe that awesome , rock crawling sonofabitch is why we now have shock absorbers and heated seats.
    Have fun
