    This was the drunk's bargain- smooth, cheap, and had a small bottle attached, so it was even cheaper.

    did you know that there are only 3 places in the world where whales go to give birth?

    all 3 are in BAJA! *

    (*so I'm told, didn't fact check...)

    He's around 10 miles of heavy construction detour road from any pavement either direction.

    Ymmv, there's more dirt there than anything we tackled the whole trip.

    Nopo has a bunch to load yet, but she's more responsible than anyone here, give her some time to get her business back to square after vacation.

    I'll start the dialog soon but I'm also getting back to the grind, and the shop is short handed so not much free time.
