NOT SO FAST, back to Baja.

Quote:
Matter of fact Baja was about to present the biggest challenge yet, and something that really made me regret not getting a full night sleep.
100+ miles of sandy whoops.
I feel your pain. Was this South of Constitution?

After hours and hours of bouncing around I finally made it to some small town on the Pacific coast, just in time before running out of fuel, both for the Husa and me. (does it really matter which town?)...
Yes, inquiring minds want to know. Is this the town and restaurant?







Ride report click here:
I hope you are enjoying the new boots you got at the NOOBS rally. Sorry for the short hijack, back to catching up on your report.

Talking

Read the first page yesterday and knew instantly I was obligated to finish...

Scratching the surface on page 13 at the moment...

Even though my son is nearly two now, I am going to tell him he was loosely named after Joe the Roadie because you are the f*ckin' MAN.

Hooked!

Started at page one last week...

I started reading at page 1 last week, saw the page count grow as I read, had no idea you would get (almost) up to date while I was reading.

The door to my house and to my kegerator are open if ever you're in the Northern part of Utah again. Like so many others, this thread has challenged me to evaluate my priorities and figure out what I can do better with my one chance.

Lost-
The title of this thread caught my eye, having spent many years in the entertainment industry myself, though I only worked one summer actually out on the road. Just had too hard a time being off two wheels for months at a time. lol

"Roadie in Motion"... the title reminded me of a favorite movie of mine and several of my crew buddies: "Roadie" it's 1980's flick staring Meatloaf. We often would quote one of the lines while working... "Why is your roadie inert?"
If you haven't seen it, about anyone who's worked in the industry seems to get a good laugh out of it.

Anyway,
I have just spent the last 3 days reading this thread, enthralled your posts, and your amazing photos!
I know it's been said many time by many people before, but Thank You so much for sharing them with all of us on here!

I've found many of your thoughts about life and your inner journey very insightful in a time where right now I am questioning where I am and what I'm doing with my own life. Your stories here have served to remind me how special life is and how I need to let go of my "destinations" and not be afraid to take a chance in the journey of life, as some of the most wonderful and beautiful experiences are those when your willing to explore the road less traveled, and just because your road ahead isn't smoothly paved, doesn't mean it won't be fun.
ADVenture riding can be such a zen metaphor for life...

I look forward to more photos, and reading more of your journeys!
Keep up the great work!

If you ever are in the Knoxville TN area hit me up! I'ld be glad to share some of my favorite dirt and gravel with ya, or share a drink and or a "monitor discussion" if your just passing thru on a working tour!

After reading a 4+ year long post it seems like anything I post on here wont matter.I have 2 pages of notes on cameras and camping gear.Best picture quality I have ever seen..I wish Joe and Nancy many happy years of ridng together.Hopefully I will meet them on the trail someday.Nothing like sitting around a camp fire with some new friends.Its time to stop being an online wanna-be and ride.I have a loose plan in my mind for a ride.My BRP is sitting with new tires on it right now.Thanks for the work on these posts Joe.

Update?

The word on the street is that Finn is riding a BMW Nine T. I think this thread could use some pictures of that new sweet bike!
