If you are coming into San Juanico from the south it is paved all the way. There is a section of some pretty wicked pot holes, but fine other than that.
And a lot of livestock...

Was referring to coming in from the south. Looks like there is at least two times where you cross over some tidal creeks. I seem to be getting that its paved all the way in but still curious about the crossings.

Part of our team will have to travel that road late at night.
I did the south route early morning in the dark, no worries, all asphalt except for the pot holes mentioned AND COWS! But that's normal down there right?

No Ken Block with TT10 (Ampudia/Redline)????
Its updated now. Jax and I will do the first 500 miles. Then Ken Block will do 500 to 840. Then Alan Ampudia will bring it home.

I prerun 500 to 705 today so I can make notes for Ken. 500 to 630 super fast. 630 to 660 all good then sandy woops for 10 to 15 miles. No silt yet rocky getting into 700 but not bad doing it all again tomorrow.

Premium and diesel are roughly the same price, current diesel price is 21.71pesos per liter. I'd figure on about $4.25 to $4.75 a gallon. depending on location.

I did RM 500 705 3 times and sand woops will get big for sure. 500 to 650 is super fast and easy. Had a guy back out on me last minute. Anyone interested to come drive the canam for me next week ?. I will be doing first 500 miles. I cant drive and make my notes at the same time. Hit me up asap if your interested. Good way to prerun the course for free if your racing.

Anyone parking trailers at rice and beans during race week? Is that still a good spot for a day or 2 of storage?

Fred’s tractor trail is no joke. Went through there today if someone breaks in there (very likely) it is going to be a massive bottleneck
