Update on Coco in Baja: Christmas 2014

Coco’s corner is still there. Stopped by on Christmas 2014 to buy a couple cokes and give Coco a tip. He had one leg when I last saw him. Both legs are gone now, but he is still the same old Coco. I told him he is famoso en el internet con mis amigos de moto en ADV. He smiled. Like he cares. He is in good spirits and healthy which is all I was wondering. Sitting in the corner he looked like a Baja Budha (if you can imagine the ladies underwear still stapled to the ceiling are Tibetan prayer flags) :



Whenever life seems rough all I have to do is remember Coco hanging tough down in the desert and all my troubles seem insignificant. He is still the same irascible, can-do kind of guy with a twinkle in his eye.

Best to all for the New Year!
Tio Juanito

Exactly!

I had heard about him, which made meeting him a special experience. I rode through a couple of months ago, just before the Baja 1000.

With just stumps for legs, he was having a hard time getting up some steps down at... is it Gonzaga, where there's a restaurant and gas?

I stopped @ Coco's a couple of days before New Year's. Spent
the night in the "honeymoon suite camper" . Coco left me in charge
for a few hours the following day. He went to Alfonsitas on his modified 4 wheeler to celebrate a friends birthday and the anniversary of his setting roots at that Corner. I felt honored and am proud to say I was manager @ Coco's Corner for a few hours. Life doesn't get much better than that. Mucho's Gracias Tio Coco. Feliz Caraterras todos. ODC.

I think my wife and I are the reason he calls it the honeymoon suite camper.

Looking forward to seeing him in a few weeks!
