Goddamnit @ScotsFire, killin' me; workin my arse off the last few days and haven't had a chance to check the forum for updates. And I see your posts from Agua Verde to Mulege..wow. Want to say the hell with this damn rat race, cash in the 401k, figure out someplace cheap down there to call home and just start riding whenever the hell I want Killer updates man, thank you for taking the time to post 'em. WRT to Loreto - celebrated my 10th anniversary there in '16 and that's what made me fall in love with Baja. Have had a couple of changes since then, but I still have a soft spot in my heart for Loreto (my wife is taking my boy there in a couple days). I love Mulege too, likely will end up somewhere between the two in the next ~15 years. Anyway, great updates. Kicking myself for not going a bit further south to Agua Verde...next trip. Knobby side down, hope you're able to get the bash plate sorted in San Diego and continue the rock bashin'...without needing to replace it again.
