beautiful mex 3


lunch stop in valle trinidad


larry waiting for his turn


the only real coke is in a bottle; i had a tripe taco....new to me but tasty


road leading to mike's sky ranch


going uphill and having the sun in our face


mike's is at about 4200 feet, we were constantly gaining altitude


we got the preferential parking


soon the steak dinner was served


on the far right is the other john (inte), he too joined the fun


for $70/night you get dinner, and of course it includes a heated room and breafast

thanks slog. inte had a russian camera - lomos? with regular film?, and took pics. i wonder where he's going to post them. meantime, i'll send him a link to this rr.

you gotta love this place




near the edge of the dry lake bed we stopped at jose's shack. he has food and fuel





though i don't need it, good i asked him if he sells gas. later i will need it (long story)

there were few vehicles and people there too


after the break, we rode towards san felipe.

this is the easy section. it wasn't as tough as last year and we made it far enough that what's left is the easy stuff



while waiting for the rest, i was told that eric broke one of his legs and that we have to turn around so we can get him safely back to the highway. the sandy section is the shorter route, but may not be suitable for an injured rider.


knowing i don't have the fuel range to go around and take the pavement to san felipe, i stopped at the shack to top off my tank. others didn't.

after 20 miles or so, larry ran out of gas and now dipping into mine....hahaha


45 minutes later, we made it to san felipe...wohooo


lunch at 3pm was super delicious

late lunch in san felipe


riding along the east coast


topped off at puertocitos. same gas attendant as last year. i'm sure his name his jose....hehe


keep note of this sign; never take for granted baja has gas everywhere




the hills robbing as the much needed daylight



the long dirt highway to gonzaga bay is almost gone now, only 5 miles of dirt is left....8(

made to alphonsinas in the dark just minutes before the big group of adventure riders showed up. yes, we took the preferred parking.




we are eating again....huh


shrimp and fish.....awesome

heading south to coco's corner. some high speed pursuit



once the gap gets too big, we regroup












we can still see the dust from the PPs






finally, we're at coco's



i wonder how long it will take the mex gov to pave the road to coco's????
