    Glad too see all are both back safe and sound. I met you both in San Ignacio an old Irish guy on his own on a yellow 2006 R1200GS. We were on the same whale watching boat. Amazing to scratch a whale on the back. Watched you eating tripe tacos in the town square, just as amazing as the whales ! I also met the Irish guy Sean Dillion South of Mulage that you met riding a 50cc Honda Moped from Alaska to Argentinia I just got back yesterday, rode on down to La Paz caught a ferry to Mazatlan and rode to Los Angeles CA from there. Great trip 2500 miles not bad for an old guy 72 yrs old in April 2012.
    Good meeting you all !
    Keep the rubber side down !

    Hi Everyone!

    I finally took the time to sort through all my pictures and data and I put it all up at my personal website at:

    Link to 2012 Baja Trip


    There you will see I divided the trip into 7 sections. Each section contains pictures and descriptions of that leg of the trip.

    Using my Spot device I tracked GPS locations and fed it to SpotWalla.com to create a custom SpotWalla map you will see on the above page. I tried to make this more interesting to people planning a trip to the Baja, so on the SpotWalla GPS map you will see a few icons of a camera and if you click on them you will see a picture at that location. Especially nice when it shows what the road conditions look like. Sweet!

    In addition I made GPX tracks files from my Garmin 60CSx GPS and each of the 7 trip sections above will tell you which GPX tracks files apply to that section. To actually download the GPX tracks files go to
    GpsXchange.com under Baja (look for snooker), where they are numbered in order. Note: their policy is you must first signup and also upload 1 track log to be able to download others's tracks.

    So you can either just quickly look at the map and click on a few pictures, or for more detail go into each of the 7 sections for pictures and descriptions.

    Now, just to give you an idea, here are just a few pics of different sections of the trip:
