    So when's the return trip to Mex? Once you taste her awesomeness, you always want to get back that felling.

    Holy fffffkkkking epic ride report. Truly a magnificent group of individuals sharing their camp fire with mortals that lurk & dream. Hommer is a combination of Mark Twain and Carl Hiason, a well blended cocktail of an epic Baja adventure.










    I leave for Baja in 2 weeks.

    'tis the season that I wish I was getting ready for an amazing adventure with some amazing friends. :waysad

    We really need to get the old Colorado drinking crew back together in 2014. I don't care if it's just an overnight-er to Pueblo. Well maybe not Pueblo, but you get the idea. :lol3

    Awesome, epic RR. I went for a weekend in San Felipe before thanksgiving, the picture of the Mercado on the malecon has the place we stayed on the right side of the pic. Don't know why I found that interesting, but I did. :lol3

    Very entertaining read, you guys need to go again so I can tag along, or so we can all enjoy another epic RR.

    I just found this RR a few days ago. No idea why I never saw it before. Great trip all of you, and thanks so much for putting it all down for us to read! I like the format, contributions by all of you. It must make it kinda fun to tag team the report.

    I think I am going to need to get back down there again as soon as I heal up from my latest orthopaedic surgeon financial assistance effort, maybe about 6 weeks from now. I got a head start by making Baja tacos pescados for my son and I last night. Of course, this recipe uses the official cerveca del RR:

    Tacos Pescados del Baja California:
    Ingredients:
    Mahi Mahi, Tilapia or other boneless white fish 1/4 lb per person, or a little more
    Small corn tortillas (and/or flour if preferred)
    Cabbage
    Key Limes
    Hot pepper sauce
    Corn oil for frying
    Tomatoes for pico de gallo
    Cilantro for pico de gallo
    White onion for pico de gallo (and extra as well, if desired)
    Beer for drinking & batter (Cerveca Pacifico Ballena is best) - don't add too much!
    About 1/2 a cup of Flour for batter
    About a teaspoon of Paprika for batter
    Dash of salt in batter

    Preparation:
    Chop tomatoes, cilantro and onion and blend to taste with pepper sauce for pico de gallo
    Clean and chop cabbage
    Clean and slice key limes into quarters
    Cut fish into finger sized pieces for dipping and frying
    Mix flour, paprika, salt and beer until the batter is smooth and not quite as thick as pancake batter
    Heat oil until a drop of batter sizzles vigorously when added to oil.
    Do not overheat oil until it becomes (tastes) burnt!
    Dip and roll chunks of fish in batter
    Fry fish strips in up to one inch of vegetable oil
    Heat tortillas dry on flat griddle or in large pan - not too much! (not much at all)

    Serve fish in corn tortillas with cabbage and pico de gallo, a slice of lime on the side and your favorite hot sauces
    Serve with black beans & rice if desired
