Baja Hooters Tour

hi everyone . ready for another Baja ride report? this ride started Dec 27 in mild rainy Ontario and ended this past sunday back in freezing cold, snowy, dull, gray Ontario. winter sucks!!!!
lets get started, but first I have to thank the ADVrider community for much advice and guidance. been planning this trip for over a year and without the wisdom from inmates, the ride would not have been as great as it turned out to be. thanks to all who have shared their Baja experiences and filed ride reports. honourable mentions go to "Crashmaster", "Sandmar" and "Springs" (from Snort'n Boar racing). thanks for the maps, advice and the hospitality.
I'm Dave ('06 12GS) and the other guy is my very cool 18 year old nephew Steven. last spring i mentioned to my riding friends that I was going to do a ride to Baja in Jan '09 and all were welcome. steven asked if he could come if he got a bike? sure why not! might want to get some gear and a license too as he has no prior riding experience. off he goes and buys an '08 KLR and signs up for a ridng course. Steven's dad, my brother Tim, is an ex expert class enduro rider and from very early in Steven's riding career it was clear he inherited the riding genes. Steven road as much as he could putting 12000 km on his bike in 6 months. that included a ride to Newfoundland last summer with his dad. having no doubts about Steven's ridng skill and the bikes prepped with some crash bars and big engine guards, Dec 27 we loaded up the trailer and attached it to the back of my poor little Saturn and headed for the warmer climes. specifically our jumpoff point near Atlanta, Ga. here, we graciously accepted a nights stay at fellow inmate Sandmars house. his family was incredible. took us out for dinner and let us spend the night in their motorhome. oh, and we learned a bunch about Llamas! what a great way to start our trip.
