I always enjoy a Baja ride report. Nice to see one go to the dogs. Thanks!

At the super mercado in Guerro Negro. It has many of the things you'll see in the city all the time: a dog with a litter stashed somewhere, a car for sale (all the cars are for sale), signs on palm trees, and nonsensical murals.

1,000 peso reward for finding a lost dog. Kind of cool to find after seeing so many dogs living on the streets.

Another one from the junkyard at the big intersection to Bay of LA, just south of where I met Cody after the Calamajue wash. We found out at the end of the day in Bay of LA that Cody's bike was shedding bolts. Instead of heading south out of BoLA, we went fishing for bolts in the junkyard- they were super helpful.

We met a couple Canucks in BoLA who happened to be ADVers. We met them again when the evening repairs on Cody's Husky failed in the morning at the junkyard. ADVer True.North and his brother in law were also needing a few bolts.


On the concrete where the dogs are standing, they stuck tools into the cement when they poured it. It was pretty cool.

From the campsite on the beach at BoLA. 50 pesos each right on the beach with all the dogs we could handle. The mercado around the corner from Guillermo's, near the road south, was pretty nice and I made breakfast burritos in the morning.

Mulege? No idea. Pretty dog that turned away when I rolled by.

Pretty sure Mulege. Nice town to walk around in, but do not agree to meet someone at the mission who may not be there for hours. Nothing is close to the mission. You can take a siesta on the tailgate of a truck, but you can't get a taco.

Yah. Sorry Dysco that it took me a bit to get to Mulege.

Saw a route the night before at the hotel that took me deep into the moutains and would take me to a deserted mission called Guadalupe.

The Uno was a distant memory when I say this.



Small villages with an extravagant cemetery.



The villages must have water. Nothing like the desert with palms and fresh water to splash on your face.



A little farming.



Once I left the oasis it quickly became the dry old rugged desert mountains again.

Nearing the old mission I saw this very cool root system.






The sign. I looked around and saw an old foundation. Knowing my sag wagon pilot was probably getting ready to come look for me i did't poke around here much. I guess I need to go back and search the area agian.



Swear these little guys wouldn't let me by. Cost me 10 minutes....



Decided to put the camera away and haul tail for Mulege at this point . One more as I was probably 30 miles west of the meeting point.



Alright. Back to the dogs!!!!!!!!!
