Will do satchmo! I will visit Baja again, if for nothing else to again thank the guys who bailed me out.

Good note about carrying electrolytes bilborides. Any thoughts about using normal Gatorade instead of pedialyte?

Ago there's definitely much truth in what you say! To an extent at least? As an imperfect analogy, I can ride faster because I wear a helmet -- I would definitely ride more slowly / deliberately / safely(?) if I didn't have a helmet. That doesn't mean I shouldn't wear a helmet, right? I tend to think a sat phone / SPOT / GPS as safety devices, like a helmet. But as you point out, all these things might extend our comfort zone maybe too much.

Thanks GB, but I'm afraid the rest of my ride through Baja isn't anywhere as "exciting".

Canada to Argentina (in progress)
