You'll Never Know If You Don't Ask

Ruff on the Road


on 2 Wheels + 4 Paws

It's Motorcycle Diaries + A Dog's Purpose. German Shepherd Moxie narrates her adventure travels and the lessons she learns along the way.

Traveling along the Pan-American Highway on their way to Lagos de Montebello, Mexico, the pack spots a beautiful grassy field beside a hillside farmhouse. The sled dogs are pulling the sun low to the horizon and the pack doesn’t know if the landlord will allow them to pitch their tent but, as Moxie soon learns, you’ll never know if you don’t ask.


When it’s time once again for the pack to visit Mexico, they leave Lake Atitlan accompanied by new friends and fellow moto travelers, David and Em of 2WheelsInMotion. The group makes a brief stop in mountains outside the village of Chichicastenango to place an order with Ruff on the Road’s tailor and then they continue together until their paths diverge that afternoon.


The pack sends the night in a field beside a farmhouse and the next morning Moxie discovers – and terrorizes – a herd of cows. From there they travel across the border and reach the stunning, pristine Lagos de Montebello in Chiapas, Mexico.


But, after enjoying a couple of days of blissful camping, on the last morning, the pack receives quite a start when the whole village turns out wielding machetes
