    You headed south from Sta Rosalillita in those rigs? This should be interesting...

    Only about a mile in order to find a camp spot. We opted to go North the next morning to get back to Santa Rosalillita and the pavement. That wash that we had to traverse was full of basketball sized rocks and it had its way with Dad's rig.

    Fantastic report - thanks for taking the time to do this.

    LOVE the XRR - I just cannot for the live of me figure out why Honda didn't stick a magic button on it and market it as a replacement for the XRL (which I have and which is decent enough but it's no XRR). The kicker-only thing would be the issue for me also - I can't kick bikes to save my life.

    Seasonal changeover from winter to summer at both the stores. Busy, busy, busy. Yes, I am planning to finish this story. You guys waited a few years for me to come out of hibernation, what's a few more weeks to finish a story? Sorry.

    He should put a link to his van build here for those who enjoy his writing.

    And now for my brilliant reply. That's new....

    Jerdog commented in my new thread over on ExPo and I figured it was worth swinging back in here to tell you where I am all at nowadays. I still have Hobbes and at this point probably will for many years into the future. I briefly contemplated selling him to finance the new project, but the conclusion was: WHY?! For the five grand I could get for Hobbes it wouldn't do that much good and I certainly couldn't replace him for that. Plus, there is all this history!

    In the end, I am onto new projects though. I am writing a new blog with the same style and detail I have written this one with. There are more stories to tell with Hobbes and I would not call this thread dead. But I make no promises as to when I will finish even the Baja story.

    Thank you all so much for all the support you have shown over the years. I immensely enjoyed writing this and even more, going on the adventures which are contained within these many pages.

    Check out my new thread at the link my brother provided in the post above.

    Gallivanter: An Ominous Beginning and an Optimistic Future.

    See y'all over on ExPo.
