    Thanks for all the hard work writing this adv up, it sure was fun. But it was mostly fun because of all the right people along with me:clap.
    Merry Xmas to all!

    Hi Klay, back at ya. :raabia


    Thank you.

    Hmmmmmmm I don't know what to think about that. :huh



    Thanks, the next one will be even better. :D


    Thanks


    Hopefully you will stay away from being sick for the next Jamboree and can make it. I think all five of us will be there.



    You're very welcome, I enjoyed sharing with everyone.

    I should get Rosetta Stone before I go again too so I can talk with the nice folks there. They are all so friendly.



    Yes, I suspect you do have a lot of riding years ahead of you. I'm not a night club type of person but it would be fun to see what they are like for a few minutes and hear the music from a distance.


    All the right people is for sure. It was the right sized group with the right people.

    Great Ride Report and your photography really is getting better. I really like the sunrise shots.

    Just caught this & had to read the whole thing. Very nice report--almost like being there with you. I've read lots of reports of Baja but have never been.

    It's even more fun riding with like-minded people. That and taking the time to really experience the area.

    Thanks for the ride....:clap

    Barry, Barry, Barry......... I'll look worse than that, anytime, just to get a hug from Becky. In fact, tomorrow I just might go see her and look even more "pathetic". I'll give her the lost puppy look. :D

    Put daughter on a plane and now catching up.

    That was wonderful LB. I enjoyed you candid wit and photography is catching to moments. Looks like you had a great group there. I think I met Lee and the HC last spring, Oldtimer I met way back.

    Lee... that TW is a great little mule; I had one 14 years and never ever gave me any grief.... :hmmmmmcome to think of it the stator went out and that's about it.

    You guys gave a good name to AARP for a change. I enjoyed the read.

    Next time you go, take in the hot springs at Puertocitos on the Sea of Cortez, in town, on the water's edge. They have a few concreted pools there and when the tide comes in the cold water mixes with the hot water and then there's usually a pool with the right water temps for soaking. The pools are too hot at low tide.

    I think they are charging 5 dollar now if you aren't a resident.

    Thanks, I like that. And now I need to find out about that Windows Live Photo Gallery with the 'retouch' function - since I have XP I'm guessing I must have it and just need to look for it and learn to use it.

    Hi Sam,

    Yes, you met Lee at Hells Canyon. Becky and I made sure she met all the important people. :D

    Looking forward to seeing you in a few weeks in Portland. :thumb


    Well, she was smiling when she returned. She's probably busy snowmobiling right now but my guess is she will pop back in here sooner or later.

    :rolleyes

    :photog You two are goof balls. Fun to have around but most certainly goof balls.


    Hey thanks. It's nice to know that we give AARP a good name :D

    Bruce would probably like those hot springs, he likes hot springs.

    Awesome write up Ladybug :clap Looks like you all had a great time :D Were you glad you rode your 200 versus your 650 on this adventure?

    Hi,

    Thanks for posting your first post on this thread and welcome to ADV. :clap

    There were times when the 650 would have been more comfy but the 200 is always easier for me to handle. I get a kick out of riding the 200 so I rarely wish I had the 650 over the 200.
