for those of you that are actually planning on reading this - I apologize.....I got hit with a cold and eating chicken soup and playing video games have been my priority for the past few days.



ANYWAYS....

We were in Rosarito Beach for two days on a Groupon that we had purchased online. It was $200 for two nights including two one hour massages, and a bunch of booze and food credits.... so basically free.

oh and FYI - getting a massage in Mexico is like being in a fight and you're not allowed to defend yourself....



SO. After two days we headed out. It was one of the three days on this trip that it was actually cold. Full gear - riding pants, balaclava etc...



Rosarito is right in the middle of fixing all the roads in town.... it was a pretty big mess





the new toll road near the old road



the toll road is awesome. very smooth and empty.











some of the views even here were incredible





we kind of skipped Ensenada..... it was busy and tons of traffic.... and kind of falling apart



and lots of pollution....



right away one could see how this could be dirt bike heaven!!



getting out onto the road - this truck was easily going 70-75+ and had zero interest in letting us pass. It was insane - he was in the middle of the lane, totally hammer down. I slowed way down because there could have been another truck doing the same coming the other way and I did not want to have anything to do with a cataclysm like that...




further on





gorgeous desert



heading into Valley de Trinidad



stoked to be a on real trip



our first road side lunch stop to practice our Spanish...

this place was cool. They were very friendly and nice.... food was good.... check it out!





further on....



down and through our first two military stops to the other side of the peninsula




heading into San Felipe
