We headed for Bahia Asuncion on the west coast just below Gerrero Negro. A rider associated with Rawhide adventures named Ken that we met at Gonzaga bay told
us if we went there to ask for a lady named Sheri & she would fix us up with good accomodation. (& hopefully they'll take credid cards).
We got to town found Sheri & got a nice beach house shared accomodation.

So it's the Pacific side now. Have I mentioned I just love Pelicans?


Great views, crashing water.

Suzi likes sand , she likes to bury herself in it . I had to stop her.


We had a bit of a fight over it!

Uh so, let me deal with this. I'll return with more soon.

So this was really cool. Mike & I rode down the coast to the next town down. It was lunch time and we had thought
this was where Sheri said her sister in law (Mexican) ran a restaurant. So we asked a local and he told us to go to
this Pink house just right in the middle of subdivision looking just like any of the other homes. No sign that it
is a restaurant. Anyways we go to the door and the lady cannot speak any English but it was "oh yes come on in". So
here we are in her Kitchen/dining/family room with her and her 3 cute kids. She makes us lunch. Hamburgers. The
Kids are quite intriged by us but can also not speak any English. Anway we all communicate as we can and we enjoy a nice lunch. It was really cool! So we pay & leave twice as much $ as she asked for. Then everybody comes out to bid
us adue. Here is the picture. (By the way it was not Sheri's sister in law & we were in the wrong town.)

Last nite, at the beach house. That is Shari on the right. Nice lady. She has various accomodations at Bahia
Asuncion. www.bahiaasuncion.com

These pics are right off her back deck. She has the nicest location in the whole area. It would be nice to stay
right there, which is possible if available.
Gorgeous!


Time to move on. I needed to call home & get a few things organised b4 I got going so Mike took off & we would meet
back up in Gerrero Negro.

I had a wee spill on the way. Was pretty tough to get the bike back up.

Cool2

Met back up with Mike in Gerro Negro. We rode right thru Catavena which is spectacular in nature. Mike needed to get home however & so we took no pics & rode thru to El Rosario just Before dark. I do have a lot of pictures of that area in my Baja2009 report below.
Mike left for home next morning. I stuck around for a bit to do some laundry, then rode north to Erindera & Coyote Cals Hostel, on the pacific coast once again. I had stayed here last year when I dirt biked Baja. Beautiful location on the Pacific.






Met Matthew & Barnaby here. Brothers, here from England. Here on a surfing adventure. Really nice guys. They had actually travelled across the US making a movie prior to this.
www.thisisalongshot.com So in fact they are actually movie producers. Cool!



Love that surf crashing in on the rocks.



First nite here was also my first nite getting sick/diarria in Mexico. Ended up being a good cleanout of my system but I didn't get much sleep that nite.
Next day headed out to San Pedro national park.

Elevation here was ~9000 feet & had snow & ice, & a sign NO MOTORCyCLES.



It was a great curvy road but suface condtions at time had light loose gravel which was hard to see. Coming back down the mountain I came around one corner & suddenly found myself in a 2 wheel drift. Keeping the bike upright put me off the road into gravel & rock leading to a cliff. I was able to hang on & slow the bike & turn back toward the road with a very limited amount of time before a big ditch opened up as the road started down. Went thru the upper part of the ditch & bounced back up onto the road just in time. Exciting! Whew!:

Best thing about staying at a hostel is the neat people you meet.
This is Mike & Sarah, Rock climbers from Zion.


This is Bob traveling solo on a Honda crf230, riding from home in Venice beach near LA. He was on quite an adventure, riding as much offroad as possible he had to camp out twice overnite trying to get thru particularly difficult trails. Lost his sleeping bag prior to the last overnite. I believe he had been as far south as Loreto. Amazing he was doing all this on a 230.
Prior to leaving home, getting his bike ready part of the challenge & sprocket combo was so he would be fast enough to outrun a dog . Well that would be good! Especially in Mexico. He was fairly well equiped for any emergencies. Sounded like he was having some good times. Always cool to meet people like this. Hey Bob!



Matthew & Barnaby


The ADVer Salute


It was really great time at Coyote Cals. The People, hey guys! & the location.
