Welcome Harder1 & r3r3r, thanks for the kind words. Kind of amazing, after 6 weeks together we didn't strangle each other, and we're still speaking.
One of the first serious discussions about our planning went along the lines of...Dad, I don't think I want to share a tent...That's good son, because I'm not sharing mine with you either!
We agreed on that pretty easily. We get along pretty well together, even though he loves to laugh at me when I do something clumsy or stupid...like tipping over on my fully loaded bike on a perfectly level and flat sand road while stopped...or go into the truck lane at a military checkpoint...or run a red light at our first intersection in Mexico...he seemed to be laughing a lot on this trip, now that I think about it.
Oh, and NSFW--I tried to warn you, this is Baja, the LONG way
No worries, the next installment we actually make it into Baja. Hope I didn't give away too much.
