Headed for Baja!!!!

Well, Codys wrestling season is coming to an end in a couple of weeks and that will leave me with a month before we open our shop up.
So I see my riding buddy Pat (also a marine mechanice off for another month) a couple days ago and he ask me " What are you doing the end of this month?", well, that set the wheels in motion. We talked about Death Valley and a few other places.
I called my Dad up today in Yuma. They just got back from their trip, made it as far as Guatemala before turning around.
He said "Lets go to Baja". So, we have decided where we are going. We will trailer the bikes to Yuma, then ride from there to San Felipe. I have a friend that lives there. We'll stay a couple days there, then down to Puertecitos, Cocoa's corner and who knows after that.
If anyone is interested, let me know so we can hammer down some specific dates. Wa Hoo, I'm headed back to Baja!!! 0003 0006 0016 0049 0009 0012

The shortest distance between two points is a damn shame.......

I rode Broke Back mountain, and my a$$ is killing me.....

Thanks DJ,
I'm getting a little sick of the cold weather this year. It doesn't usually stay this cold for this long here, so I'm going south to find some warmer weather!!!

June 1 2007, that is our projected date for "chasing the 70-80's. anything above the 80's is too hot, and anything below 70 is too cold.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.

Good for you, Mr. Gunn! Although I must say I'm a bit envious! Have a smashing time and oh, take lots of pics!

Thanks Jamie,
I was going to take my KLR as we were going to be doing some off road stuff, but that has changed. We will go to San Felipe for a few days, then up towards Ensenada to Tecate and then Oceanside. From there we are heading east to Escondido, Julian then Borrego Springs. Then back to Yuma. So it looks like I will be taking the Strom now.
I had a little mishap in the garage last night and banged my shoulder up pretty bad. Hopefully it will be better by then. And speaking of injuries Jamie, hows your back? Better I hope..........

Thanks for asking! I'm on the mend, I think. My back really doesn't hurt, but I have some numbness and a muscle in my leg isn't working. But I'm working out every day and trying to keep a good attitude. No work yet, no riding yet, etc. I have been working on the bike, adding farkles and doing maintenance: that makes me feel good.
All that to say, I'm shooting for a March 1st return to duty date. That may be a bit optimistic, but here's hoping!

Well, the plan has changed a little again. My buddy Pat just called today. The issues he was working out had to do with his Mom. He was trying to get her in a assisted living home, but her condition has gotten worse and she is back in the hospital, so he is not going. Soooo, I am flying down to Yuma. I will ride my Dads RT BMW to Baja. When we are done, I'm going to ride it back up here for him so he doesn't have to haul it back. Hopefully the weather up north here will be warmer as I head back. I plan on following the coast up California and Oregon, then head inland from Portland to the Tri Cities and to Spokane. Looking for plane tickets right now, I am thinking next teusday is my departure date. Maybe I will even meet some of you along the way..........

That sounds like a fun trip, I want to do it in July or Aug, but going south.

While your looking for air fair you might consider a round trip ticket and let him haul the bike back. I have found round trip tickets are offten cheaper than one way.

And miss the ride back up, not an option. I could aways buy the round trip ticket and use only half. You rode the pacific hwy before, haven't you? I am really looking forward to this.
