Read a press release where a banana runner ran into another on playa hermosa couple days ago.
You knew about this Audsley, you could of started your own thread and put it out as another warning, why did you chose not too? Don't blame me with a hijack. I'm still reeling over the Las Conchas burglary ring I posted and someone had the real facts.Panga crashes and armed convoys occupying Sonoyta - could this be a thread hijack? I'm certainly not complaining about this story being posted because it definitely needed to be, and I'm grateful to Playaperro for posting it, but doesn't it deserve its own thread? Some Rocky Point regulars who aren't interested in a panga crash might want to know what's happening along their standard route to Rocky Point.
We were ONCE dumb enough to go on a "cruise" on one of them. At the time our kids were 4, 5 and 8. When the guy came up to us we told him, "No!" because of the kids. He said it would just be a leisurely ride, nothing crazy. Finally after a price we couldn't refuse, we agreed. HUGE mistake!The way the banana boat operators run around, I'm surprised that there are not more accidents out there!
We also went through Sonoyta about 9:45AM and nothing seemed unusual at all. Just a 10 minute backup wait at the border and that was it.Interesting. We were down this weekend and had to get up and leave early Monday morning. Passed through Sonoyta around 9:30am and everything seemed normal. Didn't even see any military which is odd if there was this armed convoy of 20 vehicles seizing the city 12 hours earlier?
