    Buddy of mine who I've been racing & chasing with in Baja for years had all of the best places to eat all the way down to Cabo on his GPS. :dukegirl

    Last time I stopped in Puerto Nuevo, the lobsters were so small I felt guilty about them being over fished.

    Well, who knew I’d put more miles on my truck than on my bike this weekend. Unfortunately my buddy on his first Baja trip had his ride end with 3 broken ribs and fractured humorous at the shoulder joint. A convoy of Ford Raptors went out of their way to transport him into Ojos Negros. I rode back to Tecate, got my truck and drove to Ojos and back.

    Paco, great meeting you and glad you and Tom were able to salvage the rest of the ride. Look forward to another Baja ride soon.

    Yeah, who would have thought on August 31st we would need to pull over several times to warm up because we were so cold from getting totally drenched from rain? Weird weather for sure.

    Great seeing toddlite and his wife in their bitchin adventure van in erindira.

    And I hope your neighbor heals up quickly, Todd.

    You never know when Baja will bite back - part of the challenge and adventure of the place. Hopes for your friend's speedy recovery Todd!

    Weather is getting weirder everywhere these days...

    No rain pics, we were busy trying to stay dry. There was no warning, no sprinkles first. The wind came in strong then rain dumped down very strong for about 5 minutes at a 45 degree angle. I probably would have been less wet if I jumped in a swimming pool.

    We had a plan to pick up one of the remaining geo-cache items that has gone uncollected now for almost 2 years. I hope what you left at the Caselli spot ages well.

    Me & a couple of friends are kicking around a ride to todos santos in the first part of November. Nothing for sure yet, once we sort things out I’ll post here about it. I hope I can talk a few more friends into going also.
