Took advantage of being up in Monterrey for an extended holiday visit to visit La Huasteca with the FJ. It's a world famous spot for mountain climbing due to its unique formations, and is also just a fun area to do some overlanding. We drove until the pavement ended, and I got to air down my new Geolanders for the first time. Very happy with their performance and glad to confirm that they'll be a great choice for the type of terrain we typically encounter. Drove for about an hour over rough rocky dirt roads and then found a dry creek bed to pull off and have a picnic.
Took a new route north of town today. Once again, thwarted by an unexpected closed gate blocking our path (via satellite imagery I was hoping to be able to explore a mountain pass further on). Still, found a nice hillside road on which to have a cookout. Everything tastes better when you're cooking in a remote spot thanks to your FJ!
