    We reached a stalemate when they saw me making up 5-7 sec fused Torvex, and tying them together with 10 ft cords. This made it extremely difficult to just pick up one and throw it away snicker. Typical sneaky Th'r
    I have never used Torvex but from what I hear, it is quite powerful - hoo boy a guy doesn't want to tick you off!

    Don Jose,

    I assume you are talking about Torpex. Have you ever used electrical fuses

    The only thing that could coax me back into Mexico, would be a trip to ancient ruins.

    Take care,

    Joe

    By gosh Joe you coninue to surprise me! I too am hoping to make a trip to see Teotihuacan (the pyramid of the Sun and of the Moon) and a whole list of other places, but for the time being it has to be on a back burner. I wonder if they would allow a guy to go metal detecting in the ruins of some ancient city?

    Re: El Naranjal

    Ladies & Gentlemen: first let me clarify, I frankly feel safer in Mexico in general, than in many parts of the US. For example, "IF" the occasion arises, I am able to defend myself, while in the US, I have to worry more about the legal complications than the actual crime itself. In the US, in many cases, it appears that the criminal has more rights than I do..

    I have slept in many places in Mexico, many times alongside of the road, or in a rest area, I would NEVER sleep in an untended rest area in the US.

    As for the brush, I understand that it is getting extremely dangerous in many US national parks, forests, etc due to the growers, and simple criminal assaults.

    Frankly, if one stays out of the contested drug areas, the possibility of being a victim is about the same as the US.

    Mexico not full of weird "Badges? Badges? We don need no stinkin badges" types.

    I personally, am not a masochist looking for someone to punish me by assaulting or killing me for supposed crimes in past or present lives,

    Corruption? Mordida? Oh yes, for certain, but not as sophisticated as in the US, nor as large. Here it is a form of paying your fine more directly and now, rather than after a lengthy court proceedings at the tax payers expense.

    Viva Mexico ! Land of far more freedom than the well controlled US. He he he

    Hmm - now if you had your 'Pooper' along, you still would not feel safe? With a good dog, you can sleep virtually anywhere, no one will approach you without you knowing it in plenty of time. Point taken however, those roadside rest areas here in the US are not the safest places to take a snooze. I would not sleep there without the dependable <and slightly vicious> dog keeping watch.

    Re: El Naranjal

    Ladies & Gentlemen: regarding trailbikes and motos, here are a few more pictures of the Tayopa / Naranjal country. Your choice of transportation heheheheh. It certainly isn't flat lander country.

    Remember, there is generally a valid reason why many of the lost mines etc are still lost, just waiting for you..

    Don Jose' - WOW!!!!!! Maybe the best choice for our modern treasure hunters (who don't like the idea of fooling with livestock) would be a PARACHUTE? I mean Holy COW!

    ORO: Hint, in one of those pictures is your potential target. However, you won't have to walk. just ride a helicopter, then a waiting mule.

    Arkhunter, you will need a bit more than new shoes, you will need a knapsack to carry a couple of gold bars. heheh.

    Hi Real,

    What kind ground cover/foliage is in that area? It's hard to see from the photos.

    Beautiful country though - a treasure in more ways than one I'm sure!

    Re: El Naranjal

    Good afternoon Cubfan my friend: the upper elevations have oak and pine, see atachments of helicopter at landing field. The lower ones have scrub Oak and brush, perhaps running from 3 - 15 ft. on the arroyo bottoms.

    Note particularly the altimeter reading -- 6000 ft. You can go from there.

    Pay attention to the bottoms of the barrancas runing north.

    Estimated depth from Helicopter to bottom is about 500+ ft, 1000 ft from the rim up above.
