road to Batopilas
OK, I can give you more details........ I was trying to help, not be a sensationalist and that means warning people. calm down. I was stopped beside the road taking pictures about 2-3 miles off the asphalt on the road to Batopilas. These guys pulled over and walked up to me. I didn't say they were freaked out. You imagined that part. They were in Cadaliac escapades, or what ever they are. Two brand new SUV's. One ask me if I was alone, which was kind of obvious. yes, I was. The guys in the rear SUV got out and started shooting rifles into trees and valley. The older (60's) guy initiated conversation with me, while another stood in front of me taking his fountain pen apart, which had my attention. he poured himself a snort, then offered me one which I refused as nice as I could. they became upset, ask me if I was a cop, accused me of being a cop and said finally while Putting the pistol in my ear, "What the f--- are you doing in Mexico if you don't do drugs?" That's when I headed for my bike, about 20 feet away. yes, it rattled me to turn my back on this pistolero. I wondered where they were for the next 8 hours as they were headed for batopilas also. Like I said, I'll never go alone again, and i can't wait to go back. Anyone up for a trip about next April, let me know.
Also, if you have more questions, just ask.........I don't get on here but once a week, so be patient. ken d
