Virtually every time we go into Morelia we have to take the scariest hill, whether by bike or car/truck. We could go another way on bike, adding 30 min each way. By truck we could only avoid it by going off-road altogether, and perhaps get stuck.
But if we ever get stuck, if the transmission goes out (which is does), if a tire blows, on the scariest hill I think we’re done for. It’s a steep hill+sharp curve+cliffside+narrow road+potholes.
The other day someone had filled in some potholes and left behind dog food bags filled with rocks to protect the roadwork. So we got an obstacle course, too.
I want to communicate the terror through video, but this is the best I can do. (Hill starts around :41)

actually, that video is quite terrifying to me! feels fast with not much control, especially with the rain. i know it might feel less scary if i were in the vehicle….or maybe not!
