SF Bay Area to Cabo, its not the destination but the journey

Writing this from San Felipe. In some coffee shop across from Hotel Costa Azul.

Last summer I got a GSA with hopes of one day got to South America, Alaska and points beyond. So I figured Baja would be a good first trip. While I plan to make it Cabo, its only the final destination. Never been but not sure I'll like it. I have had my fill of "destinations" where people arrive in an aluminum tube for a week or two of whatever....

Final note. It took me 2 days to get to San Diego, mainly cause I stop to visit my younger daughter in San Luis Obispo, she's a sophmore at the college.

Saturday AM. OK so here I am ready to go


There I go:

Sunday evening I arrive in San Diego. I head twoard the Tecate crossing in hopes of finding a motel. Gets a bit dicey, so I go back to Pacific Beach and stay the night.

So here is the first day of travel:

I took crashmasters advice and did the compadre trail (?):

Somewhere between Tecate and Ojos Negros:

More later heading to Alfonsina.....
