Face it dude, you've been ruined for Chicago.

rolling with an analog map now, and that just makes it more of an adventure )

Just got my daily SPOT email from Finn. He and Kevin are camped on the beach at Gonzaga Bay. All is well.

Great stuff as usual Joe, hardcore and all. Nice to see you've got a GS now.

Hold The Press!!!

I have made it down to La Paz. collecting parts of Kevin's 12GS along the way...
This is the first real internet I've had, and haven't uploaded any photo's yet.

While in a local pub last night in this warm paradise I met this talented madman named Sterling who has really impressed and inspired me...
He has been on a solo ride from Seattle for many weeks, though he says he's been lurking around here for a while he's not yet posted and I just have to share what he's up to...
So... I'll get to my Baja photo's soon, but in the mean time go to his nice site and check out the great video's of his Baja adventure.
Hopefully he will post his own thread as soon as he gets his "ADV account working right" - his words.

Hey Finn,

your report is amazing.

It makes me sick, to sit here in Grey-Rainy-Snowy-Küntrop. If I could....

Okay, I have my family+working-Job, I´m in charge for that but....

Okay, somtimes I can do a small "PAUSE" for leaving on my bike but...

The Baja is fantastic I, one day I.....

Nice regards

Martin

The vids of Vagabiker are great. Let him know that he has to set up his trip at the ADV...

How do you get your photos to be 3D? Outstanding!!! Great to see a new bike doing what it's made for

Deserts are cool...

So I pulled into Coco's Corner on my way to Alfonsina's last Sunday (2/15) and I saw this bike parked there with no license plate....


I saw this one, too...



After talking with Kevin for a few minutes, I realized I'd read the first few posts of this thread before taking my own Baja trip.

It's a small world, even if it doesn't feel like it down in Baja...
