Just outside of Cabo
Everything is so green
It has not been this why in about 5 years
Usually it is brown and dead
Look close, all the yellow spots flying in the air are butterflies

Dunlop 606 rear and I am not sure about the front. It is something new from Dunlop. But they work well and last long

And like I said all along, as long as I have the means and desire, I am doing this!
Right now, I am home getting things ready for my trip south. I have one more Baja trip next week. They really are not part of my RTW trip but I figured others might find the stories interesting and enjoy my pictures along the way.
So stay tuned. I will be heading down in to Latin America soon. And for me, that is when the true adventure begins.....................and I can't wait!
Definitely staying tuned to this RR. Looking forward to the next "official" leg of your journey. Thanks for adding all the Baja pics. Convinced me that is a trip I need to do.

Since you are so close to Baja already (So Caloif) you have to go
I got hooked 20+ years ago and spend a lot of my time down there
I am going to travel the world to find somewhere I like better now
