I just returned from a trip to the Huasteca region of Hidalgo and Vera Cruz region of Mexico. This trip was hard on the car since there dosen't seem to be very many paved roads in the region.
After being stopped by bad roads in Zacualpan, V.Cruc I was force over the mountain and ended up in a small hotel on the main road to Huejutla.
The next morning I went to Tiangistengo and then followeded the central mountain range for 52 miles. The trip toook 8 hours. Durnig that trip I decided to raise my car up and inch and put a steel plate underneath. The car is lossing the battle with the back roads of Mexico.
There were two new villages on that day one is actuallay in the district of Tiangistengo and the other is in Vera Cruz, but there are no roads from Vare Cruz. The road ends there with a giant canyon in front of it.
