I'll differ to Nancy the photographer answer your question DC...
And thank you all for the kind words!



On the road again, dum dum dum da da da da daaa. On the road again....



It's harder departing on a journey solo these days, with Nancy unable to make it on this ride I will do my best to carry on and have some fun.
It was chilly this morning, but with plenty of sunshine already beaming by the time I took off.

Nancy saw me off, making me promise I would be safe. Of course darling.
Time to ride on a new adventure, I've never been in Baja during the race and am stoked to see what's going to happen in this uncharted for me territory.









Little traffic on the highway, 275 miles to the border.






Another I uneventful border crossing and I was in Mexicali heading south, after a stop at a bank ATM to pick up some pesos of course.
I was once again racing the sun by this time and didn't stop much, though I couldn't pass up the dunes for a quick stretch and couple of photos.
I rolled into San Philippe right at sunset, surprised to see hotels with rooms available. I figured it being Saturday night, the weekend before the big race with all the folks here prerunning it would be more of a madhouse. While I was indeed tired, having a slight hangover from yesterday, and was beat up from the strong winds most of the way here, I had figured I would eat, gas up and keep riding south following the track from the race until I decided to camp.
Getting soft in my old age, having turned 40 last week, I jumped at the hotel opportunity with no remorse.








































Ending up at the same hotel nancy and I had stayed at on the Winter Madness ride, I took my softness and laziness to the next level and didn't even unpack the bike.
I need tacos, not eating since early morning.









And of course the obligatory street photos from the first in Baja. Not too many folks around, some racers/riders milling about, with tales of whoops and silt filling the air. Families with souvenir stands all around try to make a sale, maybe on the way home, thank you.



























I had OB'd at dinner and sleep seemed very attractive.

That's Over Beefed.
Too many tacos and a few beers really slowed me down, but I wanted to get this started, not knowing when I'll have wifi again.

And that's really about it, a good start to what should be good times. Tomorrow I get on the trail and head south, not sure where I'll end up, but staying in motion with a smile is all I need.

-Finn

After all the beautiful, dramatic, colorful photos taken by Finn ,it was my turn to take a photo. I have to be honest it took me quite a few times to finally capture it and to be honest I believe Finn really didn't mind much repeating that jump.....

cool, you two have so many incredibly awesome pics but for some reason this one spoke to me, maybe it's the action and the frozen in time all at once, so I nominated it on the front page photos thread.

Thanks for the tarp info! I found 'em on eBay and just ordered one. Overstock (of all places) has some on there... the 14x12 model for $54.95 plus $2.95 shipping. The smaller 9'6x9'6 model is available from some other vendors for $55 shipped. I decided to get the larger one.

Have a good time in baja and be safe.. we look forward to the rest of the story!

Rob

BTW, love the photo of you guys at Engineer Pass (over 12,000 feet !!!). That was my first introduction to Colorado mountain dual sportin, with a couple of Big GS riders. Just about kicked my ass, but the most amazing ride I've done yet. Colorado is motorcycle heaven.

Thank you

Yes it is... but wait till you see Utah... Its pretty ridiculous!

You guy's are living life to the fullest, great reporting & picks. How do you like that rear tire? and how many miles do you expect to get out of it?

Ms. Annie to you YetiGS.



It was nice to meet Ms. Annie. I'm looking forward to her "playing" with my Little Orange Spinner for some girl-on-girl dirt time.


Looks like you're having fun, your last message was from some place without a name!

Lost/Chi,
I think we may have crossed paths back in Sept. Were you in Crecent Oregon ?
Gas station/store ?
We were guys on DR650, GSA, Super Enduro and WR250, NJ tags.

A picture is worth a thousand words, or so they say.
