Spend several nights on the beach at San Carlos,
couple of nights in pemex stations which were convenient but not very scenic,
one night where the new road ends 30km north of Choix
and tonight we are in a pine forest with fantastic mountain views (no sunset this time though) as far away east from Mazatlan as we could get in a short afternoon.
We also stayed in a van park at Alamos to experience their music festival and two nights in a motel front yard at El Fuerte for no particular reason.
So far van parks are running a distant second and I hope we can keep it that way.
No bullet holes in the RV yet and no coke (the type in a can) taken by the army either.
