Yes, a big thank you to Elden, who was the wrong side of 70 but looked younger and was in better shape than all of us 30 somethings. Pretty awseome timing to run into him at the border. He delighted in telling us he'd been riding Baja since before we were born

He gave us great advice on the washed out dirt roads in the area close to the border. Within a few miles of the border we hit the soft stuff.

Tiny. This was one of those photos where I thought for a split second that I was toast

We were soon totally lost in a maze of roads, where Lone Star christened the trip with the first head plant (photo anyone!), but this nice ranchero unlocked his gate and let us back onto the main drag.
