Pulled into Paamul after dark last night. Picked up a hitchhikker named Ricardo outside of El Zapata and he rode with us for hundreds of miles. He helped unload everything and works like crazy. Tomorrow he will start clearing the jungle back behind our palapa. We had a good night listening to the Wee Haas chirp on our grass roof, it makes you smile every time you hear it. Had a close encounter with bandidos about 20 miles south of Villa Hermosa, just across the border. There was thick black smoke coming across the highway which we later realized was intentionally set. Normal instinct, towing a trailer were to slow down. Three guys came running out forcefully pointing for us to stop right there. The one in the lead was really playing chicken with my truck, almost to the center line and not stopping. I did what any rational man would do, floored it and layed on the horn. The rest of the trip was great, can't wait to put the grill tomorrow tomorrow while Ricardo clears more room for our garden, will post before and after pictures.
