Floating the idea of a ride down to Batopilas, Chihuahua, Mexico. Looking to see if there's interest for once the C19 thing is at a significantly reduced level. So the dates and duration are estimates. I'm really trying to gauge if there is interest in such a ride. Likely the duration would be 16 days to account for a some high mileage days along with the ability to stop along the way and "smell the roses."
[masked] Update: When to go? As I mentioned, "once the C19 thing is at a significantly reduced level," and by that, for me that means a few things: a) I am fully vaccinated; b) everyone else that joins is fully vaccinated; c) daily confirmed infection rate is below some yet to be determined figure in the US; d) same as "c" for Mexico; and e) all of that coincides with the appropriate season as in both temperatures and rainfall.

I'd expect that once the above conditions have been met, that we'd have more conversation about what kind of preparation might be required. Additionally, I notice that many who have shown interest in the ride prefer "short & all day" rides.
