Probably better off in "Travel Destinations".. I'm sure a mod will come in and switch it for ya.

I don't know anything about Mexico, but welcome back to the forums. If you scroll down on this page you'll see posts related to yours- try reading some of them. They'll all be Mexico based. :)

wow, old posts. ive been in guadalajara for a week now but it is fucking expensive out here.

I have a couple questions:
are there safe places to sleep outside or for free in a city nice/safe like guadalajara? in the US ive always slept at skateparks if i needed to. i tried hinting at a couple local bmxers that i could use a place to stay but eventually i found out that mexican people are reluctant to invite strangers into their home

also i have a bmx bike and traveling via bus sucks.
item1: i have to remove my wheels,
item 2: i have my bike frame fork and bars as a big clunky shaped object that bumps into people and bothers them
item 3: big bulky framed backpack
getting on the bus is a huge hassle and getting off the bus sucks too, i have to throw my pack outside on the floor, then walk back into the bus and grab my bike and wheels and throw them out also. everyone is saying how gritty/grimey mexico city is and of course bus station terminals are always busy and sketchy, i am really worried about someone grabbing my pack while i am untangling my bike from the bus. any ideas? really the only thing i am concerned about in my bike is my biketools, tirepump, spare tubes and phone charger :0

any thoughts on keeping my shit from getting jacked at sketchy busy bus terminals?

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
