Restless

Donnie,

You have been home for a few days aren't you getting restless yet?
When does the next trip start?
And Where?
Hope you come through Manitoba.

Adrian.

I started getting a cold the last day of the trip as I rode from Dallas, TX home and have felt like crap ever since I have been here!

Yes, I am ready to leave again, but it will be toward the end of June. June 15 will be the one year anniversary of Sheryl's death, with June 16 being her birthday. I feel a very strong need to be home during this time!

I think that I will probably be headed back down to Mexico for a bit. I will also return to Baja , MX with my cousin in November and some time during the late November to March time period, I will go to Belize, Costa Rica and Panama. I will probably get some other trips worked in between these, but have no firm plans at this time. I want to get to Newfoundland and Labrador when possible.

It's a no brainer for me. I'll take the DR650. Should I get the Safari tank?

I had one section at 185 miles without fuel. And other at 240 miles, but there was barrel gas.

I think my own return to Baja will be in November, Donnie, so maybe we will cross paths at that time.
I want to look at some of the Baja 1000 and then take the boat across to Mazatlan or Topolobampo.

I'm taking my cousin down for some of the better parts that I rode last year, plus some new stuff for me!

Donnie; It's 12:30 AM, and just finished your report. What an adventure! It took me a couple of days to finish it. I have forwarded your report to a couple of buddies and used it to entice one of them to venture out, to Baja.. I really enjoyed the photos and your narrative and specially the connection you made with the great people living their lives. You really exposed the true majesty of Old Mejico! Well done! and thank you for your the report. I shall follow in your footsteps.

Finally read through the last 7 pages of updates and pics and I can say that it looks amazing. You take adventure riding to another level by the way you travel and the many people you meet. Diving into a dirrent culture is something that maybe very few of us would even dare to do but you seem to take with stride. Nice travels my friend and keep on riding.
