Thumb Yea, it's on the list now.

Never been there yet but I'm going one day soon. You did a great job on the RR. This is the kind of place I would love to go. A lot of dirt and some great scenery and a fairly peaceful existance. What a concept.
Thanks for sharing.

Hey kobukan,

Thanks for sending me your GPS tracks a couple months ago...we followed 1 or 2 of them on our trip. We spend 17 days and got back earlier this month. We went to a lot of the same sights, like the cabin at Laguna Hansen but we paid $70 and they would not budge on the price (but there was 5 of us total):

Our trip didn't go as smooth as yours I wouldn't say! I didn't realize it until we were on the road but I tore the bead of my D606 and within a hour into the trip I was on the side of the road outside of Tecate. I can say from experience that it's very hard to find a 17" tire in Baja so feel good that you didn't have to deal with that!

Thanks for the kind words guys.

blacktruck: I sure hope you get your chance to go there one day soon. "A lot of dirt and some great scenery and a fairly peaceful existence" - I like that description.

skeelo221: Glad you were able to make use of some of the tracks. Sorry to hear about your tire problem, but 17 days in Baja must have been great. I read somewhere recently that $70 is the standard rate for a cabin at Laguna Hanson so I guess I was pretty lucky. But, didn't they tell you - your supposed to park the bike on the porch.

That Canyon de Guadalupe has intrigued me for years as a camping spot to park for about a week and relax. I'm trying to learn more about it. Internet? Food supply? Fire wood? I have to dig back into my links. My past research is a bit fussy.

All I wanted to do was lay in the hot spring for a while, enjoy the scenery and get some sleep - so I really don't know what else is available there, but it sure seems like a good place to relax for a while. I think you can find some more info easy enough if you Google it.

Coordinates for Canyon de Guadalupe: N32 09.233 W115 47.299 Check it out if you get a chance. I'd go back.
Thanks, I just added those Coordinates into my Garmin for an up coming trip.
How far from turn off to camp spot? Not planning on camping but a quick dip in some hot springs sounds good for a mid day break.

Thought you all would get a kick out this video in Quadalupe Canyon.
I call it the "Donkey Rodeo"
This was in January, 2013

Good story by the way------thanks for reminding me what was in Laguna Hanson---I've been there------but forgot about the cabins.

It's about 8 miles in after you turn off the Laguna Salada dirt road. 35 miles total on dirt from MEX-2 to Canyon de Guadalupe camping area.

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.
