Haha. Somebody is missing riding... Thursday night I have a "date" with a flakey girl so if she bails I could meet up. Baja, Mexico, Latin America. All good. Highly recommended. I think of it every day. No lie. Provided you don't need all the luxuries here, you can do it pretty darn cheap so don't let the money issue slow you down. The time off can be the bigger one. If I can start saving money I'm planning S.A for 6 months fall of 2014. Baja is a hoot and gives you a special taste of Mexico (and delicous margaretas and cervesas) I missed out on the last trip, but that would have been three times less than two years. A bit greedy. I highly recommend the Copper Canyon, but the locals are ... different. Baja locals are very, very friendly.
