Owner of Rancho El Coyote passes (Familia Meling)

For those of you who ride Baja, I'm sorry to report that the owner of Rancho Coyote passed away yesterday.

Ayer fallecio la dueña del Rancho El Coyote.

As many Baja riders know, the Meling family are good people who've always welcomed riders.

There are differences between the Meling ranches. See the below map for the distances. Different owners/operators. Both are fantastic locations who warmly welcome guests.

Rancho Meling has a website: http://www.ranchomeling.com

Rancho El Coyote Meling no longer has a website but they're on Facebook.

Back in the 70's Rancho Meling was NOT off road friendly at all. Aida Meling (matriarch) hated Mike Leone (The real Mike of Mike's Sky Rancho) and SCORE. There was a Baja 500 where Aida had the gate wired solid so it couldn't be opened the night before the race!!! Nice surprise for the first bike eh? Of course, that all changed in around 2004 or 2005. Both El Coyote and Meling Rancho are special places and I would rather stay there than Mike's these days.

Ha. Yep, that is true. You understand why there's a rivalry, I suppose.

Good info, good memories.
