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.


Downhill Weather And Uphill Racing

Fall is definitely here now. Saturday fished in very warm temperatures and did so so. That is not a complaint. Sunday was different. Went to watch the last stage of Rally Colorado. The short video will explain both.

Here it's a very good idea even in the summer time to have a jacket or a vest with you at all times. I was not prepared today and got caught without proper attire. I did bring pants and a vest along but even at that it would not have been enough to endure.

The sun wasn't shining but my luck was when I came upon a friend who I had supper with two nights before. She fixed me up with a poncho and saved One Fly's sorry wet ass or else he wouldn't have gotten these video snippets. Eternally grateful Maurita - thank you so much!

FYI - the open class for these cars have around 350 HP.

A short way from here is the east fork of the Williams Fork River that goes for miles and is all private. For several years I was able to fish about a mile and a half of that which was pretty damn nice. What made it better this river holds for the most part only native cutthroats.


  1. How can a river be 'private'? I love auto racing of any kind btw. ;)

  2. That's the land on either side Dusty. You can go down them in a flotation device across private land but cannot touch the bottom or land anywhere. Lot's of hassles over this and there's not enough water in this particular river to do that.

    If I could afford it I would have several Chevy's from the 60's that would be capable of burning up a set of tires rather quickly.

    It was really shitty out there and if it would have been nice it was possible to get pretty close to these things. Racing-yea me too.
