Dec 20, 2010 - Monterrey, Mexico

I left my truck and trailer in McAllen, Texas and Laura and I took a bus to Monterrey, Mexico. Monterrey is the third largest city in Mexico after Mexico City and Guadalajara . There are more than one million people in the city and 3.7 million including the surrounding area. It was founded in 1596 as a trading outpost between Mexico City and the USA. It is the capital city of the state of Nuevo Leon. Monterrey is one of the hottest cities in Mexico with temperatures in the summer being at more than 35 degrees (95F) for three consecutive...

Jul 8, 2008 - Last night in Mexico

As you can see by the clouds, weather was threatening rain or drizzling most of the day. This motel is along the tollroad from Monterrey to the US border. The toll costs almost $20 but the "libre" (free) road is full of potholes, villages, and construction. Between the motel and the toll, I spent more money per mile here than on any other portion of the trip. But this hotel is up to US standards and at that point in time, was worth the money. In Mexico there is a definite choice in highways. The tollways are generally in good condition and...

Feb 10, 2008 - Our trip to Monterey Mexico

We began our trip by boarding a bus and traveling to Monterey. Our first stop was Horsetail falls. It is a very beautiful waterfall and it does look like a horsestail. We took a horse drawn buggy up to the falls and then climbed the steps up to the falls themselves. At the top and bottom there are stands where you can get drinks or food. It was a delightful way to start our trip. After Horsetail falls we returned to our hotel and had the evening to ourselves. Ray and I walked over to the shopping area and had supper in a small place on a...

Feb 11, 2007 - Saltillo Mexico

We were organized into groups of 8-9 rigs each, with a group leader, a tail gunner and a trip log. The trip log was very detailed and intended to make sure we all found our way. The first day we drove to Saltillo, about 200+ miles from the border. Our border crossing was smooth and we were on our way. 8 hours later (do the math: we were very slow - lots of slowing down to make sure we were all more or less together, stops to re-fill fuel tanks, have lunch or whatever, and no real issues with getting lost -- just slow.) we pulled into...

Sep 20, 2005 - A trip to MonterryMX

This is the story of the Monterrey trip with Carlie Stillman (Mom) and my other coworker on this trip, Johnny Chan. Sep 20 was Portland departure date. Imagine my horror when I popped open the back of my car at the airport and realized my luggage was still sitting on the back step at home! Round trip Hummingbird Hill to Airport is 2 hours. Needless to say, I missed my flight. During my 2 hour trip to retrieve my bag I called American Express Travel, American Airlines and the Airport. There was no point in calling work. Most people were not...

Mar 29, 2005 - Monterrey and the journey to . . .

Monterrey was a really cool city, though if we had to pre-judge the city by the trip there, it would have been a bubbling cesspool. The two hour trip to Ciudad Valles from Xilitla was actually pretty damn relaxing and easy. However, some of the really swass bus lines didn't run between Ciudad Valles and Monterrey, so we ended up taking a somewhat ghetto bus for the eight hour overnight trip. Sam's seat was downright broken, so if she put any weight on it, it fell backwards into a reclining position. They showed Spiderman 2 again, so both of...
