Life on a cliffs edge…

thought I’d do a quick check in with you guys…

As we live on the road as opposed to taking a trip for a few months or a year or so, once in a while we need to catch up on real life and ‘get things done’ – some in Arizona and some in Mexico but we are again finally moving.

We spent our last night in AZ sitting around the fire talking bullshit, telling lies, drinking beer and eating fruit that wouldn’t travel

A few hours later we were crossing at Tecate, which has to be one of the most chilled crossings there is

[​IMG]

So how do we let you know we really did cross that border and what would be specific to Mexico, perhaps?

In the first restaurant, we go in “the Donald” is in a painting wearing a sombrero, looking like he’s pinching one off, the last supper is eating tacos and empanadas and drinking coke and our bikes are parked securely inside our apartment!

We had a couple of weeks in Rosarito on a cliff top with a friend dealing with an amazing sunset every day

Running back and forth to TJ on a regular basis for two weeks, I could show bad photos of TJ but, how about this instead, TJ is looking better and better, money is coming in and it has cleaned up a lot since my last visit

…and meeting local bikers who show some real uniqueness!

parking in the city by day, keeping us secure underground

Once all the ‘real life’ stuff was completed we ran down the coast a little staying at Mamas

[​IMG]

Then went looking for whales who’d been spotted way off the coast of Rosarito, so we went to the #1 spot further south Guerrero Negro, the problem was we travelled south obviously too quick and the best we could do was this!

This was our southern point, we’d never planned to hit Cabo, I’d spent a bunch of time down there in 80’s and 90’s and wanted to keep it like that in my memory and Egle didn’t really care to go. After just crossing into Baja Sur by a few k’s then we turn back north, and our Mexican adventure will begin to happen.

[​IMG]

We headed north, made the turn, stopped in to say hi to Coco and drop him some chicken and grab a quick beer before continuing further north

Then a little sand

Just one more chore, we arranged a delivery in Yuma to make our lives easy, so I make a quick dash across the border for 90 minutes, and now our travels are back on track and can continue at the leisurely pace we like. Mainland here we come…

  1. What was the condition of Hwy 5 between Hwy 1 and Gonzaga, past CoCo’s? I know that they are working on paving it; have they made much progress? Detours?

    • from the turnoff from the 1 to Coco’s they are doing some major work, huge earth moving equipment is there right now but they still have a lot of work left to do. Currently, just massive rock base is being levelled, to start the Macadam process. After Cocos there is about 8km of varied surface dirt/ sand/ rock etc. with a few go-arounds then you hit perfect pavement headed to San Felipe. Around 40 minutes south of SF the road is rough, still paved but very rough, lots of potholes.
