It feels pretty dangerous here. :)
I'm totally diggin these trees
our hotel was so close to the beach the lobby was under water
This place was cheaper than the motel 6 was last year in El Paso
Jail. Are original room had no ocean view. It was well worth 8 bucks to escape this place.
"Join us on the sunny side of the hotel"
View from the roof of hotel
The federal building was such an eye sour. It looked almost other worldly compared to Old Mazatlan
South Side of town
North Side of town
You see that church off in the distance? you'll see it again later
So this is Mexico
Yep that's me
Sitting around at dinner some dude strolls by wearing Luna sandals.
I should have photo shopped Shawn out

I feel right at home

On the boardwalk we'll be having some fun
Somethings wrong with this photo?
If I knew what It said I'd come up with some smart ass comment
Your smile is upside down dude. I might have to photo shop that one later

What's an IABLO?
Carnival ended the week before we arrived
If you sit in the thrown you get to stair into the lions butt all night.
Where are the Lunas?
I don't think we have any baby sandal stores in the states?
In case we ran into danger I thought buying this barrilitos would be a good idea? The bottle is much better shape for throwing your Molotov cocktail a long distance.
Shakesphere was wrong. A rose that wipes your butt would not smell as sweet.
There's that church again
I'll take one parrot, the disco ball and a banana.
The produce actually cost more than I pay for it in the states
These little piggies went to market.
This describes the prior pic
Old Mazatlan is pretty tiny

It almost looked as if you step right off on to the clouds. "Hey Scott you go first"
And he's climbing the Stairway to Hea-ven
I decided to hike up barefoot.
Stephs trying to put Scott's tiny head in the crusher
Does it get any better than this?
There's a Lighthouse over yonder.
This don't look anything like Utah
What kind of idiot would climb all those stairs?
Check how old school this dudes coconut mobile is.
I think Scott is pondering why it took him so many years to finally get his ass down to Mexico.
That beach looks nice, maybe we should investigate?
Can you guess which beer was mine?
After smashing are coconuts on the rocks we ate the meat using sea shells and used what remained of the husk as a bottle opener
Cheers to the Pacific with my Pacifico
He built that sand castle all by himself.
Beauty and the beast? Dork and the Dorktress? I just don't know
How can you not be happy in this place?
Best day ever?
The key to making a good tackle is too stay low.

I see a grapefruit.
Now I see 2 grapefruits
Now I see a fruity dude
Now I hold a grapefruit
Now I watch Steph eat a grapefruit

Arizona crew slumming it in the alley
Shawn was giving away pencils well into the night
Mamacita, donde esta Shawn wood?
Standing room only
It's time to go run Eli. "what"
Wake up dude
Race day. Cluadia was sitting on her Bed when all of sudden this Tarantula crawls up the wall about a foot from her head. He's about 5 inches long
I decided to try out a new product I offered to share my butt paste with everyone, only Barefoot Ted took me up on the offer.
Let's get ready to rumble.
Walking to town at about 6 a.m.
Shawn was self contious that we were looking at his bum in those lycra shorts.
Nothing to it but to do it!
Good luck Carlos
Is it over already. At the finish line you just go over and hug and high five whomever is closest to you.
Congrats on the beautiful smile
Well done compadres
These sweet girls were going around getting autographs from all the runners. They made everyone smile :)
Congrats to Erbalisto
Lori your a bad ass
Good job Olaf
Piece of cake

The runners kept coming in well after dark
Great Scott its Scott!
So proud of you Dude!!!

Maybe they really do love eachother?
Victory is ours
We seemed to have made a new friend?
Maybe I should'nt have motioned for him to show off his rack.
Trying to take it all in Shawn asking Scott "what the hell did we just do?"
Those stupid Curry brothers kicked ass in the race and looked like they were ready to do it again just a few hours later. Well done dudes.
Nacho tried to sell us his racing gear for around $450 U.S.
Nacho Baracho. One my favorite's anoung the Tarahumara. He made me sandals last year so I wanted to repay him with some Stone Ale.
Found in our room after the race.
