Have a great trip John... We will be going in April this year..
Ride Report in exchange for buying a KLR?????
Ain't gonna happen. :ddog
Nice picture of larryboy and Kalle!
What's all that junk on that table?
It's been about ten years since I was at Canyon De Guadalupe. What a neat spot. I was just thinking yesterday how much I'd like to do a MC trip out there one of these days. I'm curious to hear how the place is these days.
Good luck! It sounds like a great trip.
I've started a thread looking for road intel through Central California for our impending long way to Baja trip...if any of you adventurers care to chime in I'd really appreciate it.
Cool, I'll bet April is beautiful ... we're looking forward to a long, cold hard ride to get south of the border ... brrrr! When you get back in April you can do a Death Valley Thanksgiving and Baja road report ... ha!
Brave words from an inmate with no bike ... there's a KLR in your future ... embrace the idea!
We were last there in 2009 ... how time flies! They had just had a huge fire on the north side of the canyon, but it was already making a nice come-back ... here's a couple of pics ... You can get some scale of the big warm pool from Cary on the left hand side ... and a pic of the water crossing coming out ...
And a pic of a Horsepower Tour of open wheel, Mazda engined buggies ... quite a scene ... you can see one of the valve covers of the flat-four engine in the rear of the buggies ...
I have a friend who's trying to make a reservation for after Christmas and has been told it's going to be crowded ... we're just going to roll in ... if we can't get one of the campsites with a private hot pool, I'm sure they will let us camp somewhere, and we'll just enjoy the big pool ...
see you around the campfire,
Man, Do I ever need this right now.
I can't wait!!!!!! Let's do this Paul! :)
I've found a set of wheels online that I'd love to buy, but the seller won't ship them. They're located in San Jose. Would anyone in the area be willing to pick them up and ship them to me? Of course I'll be happy to cover the cost of your time, gas money, packaging, etc., in addition to shipping charges.
if you don't mind waiting until after the first of the year (i'm currently out of town), i'd be happy to. sending you a PM.
The wheels were on ebay & the auction ended this evening. Unfortunately someone else wanted them a little more than I did. Thanks for the offers to help, I really appreciate it!
Looks like Monday morning we'll be starting the long way to Baja. Here's 2 links to follow our progress. If you check them now you'll either see a blank map or an error message because there's no tracks yet...
The first link is simple to remember: www.hardworkingdog.whereamiriding.com
The other link has annoying ads from Spot but the map has much better zooming capability in satellite mode: http://share.findmespot.com/shared/faces/viewspots.jsp?glId=0Ha6jneFTDaIyu0Z4gqf1Hj2EgMacWQOJ
Wish us luck
Good Luck on the adventure, HWD! Looking forward to following along.
Have a great time! So jealous! That's awesome!
Thanks Ramjet 'n 'jammer! This was a hard time to try and get ready for a trip like this, but we're there, finally. Got a headache from all the last minute details, and I'm still not sure whether to go full coverage or liability only gonna get up in the morning and make that decision, and wait for the frost to melt...
Have a great trip 'Dog!
Good luck! Sounds like a wonderful trip ...
I think Cary and I will miss you ... Getting ready to head home on New Years Day from Bahia de los Angeles ...
Gonzaga Bay ...
On the way to Coco's ...
see you around the campfire,
Bon Voyage, my friend!
