Thanks Everyone...

Thanks for the comments.

Here are some tracks and waypoints for the southern part of our trip. I somehow lost my tracks for everything north of Bay of LA ( I thought I saved them ), but all of that stuff was pretty straightforward anyway- MX5 to MX1.

I was really hoping to have tracks for the somewhat confusing route from Algodones border crossing. Sorry.

EDIT: Changed the attachment to add waypoints

This RR has had me hooked for the last month now and Charla's montage was the perfect ending!

Those that have been know that on every Baja trip we leave a little ourselves there but she gives back so much more in return.

I have to say that I'm honestly blown away by the response to this silly little RR that we threw together. It's always a struggle to decide whether to do a report or not especially given the number of Baja reports that have already been done.

I thought to myself "Who's going to want to read the story of a bunch of people who went to places a million riders have gone before?"

More than I thought I guess.

I'd like to express my sincere thanks to everyone who followed along with us and encouraged us to keep going and get this thing finished. I also very much appreciate the comments and folks letting us know that they enjoyed our story.

Until next time.

You are all far too modest...this is a great RR and one that I checked in on regularly so as not to miss anything.

Very nice job by all......and thanks for taking the time

Wonderful trip report! I felt like I was there with close friends tho I've never met any of youse except through your posts. Your routes covered some favorite territory and took me there one more time, new and better. Now I've got to get back there in the spring. And the late spring. And the early summer. And the fall...

Thank you!

Thanks for taking us along and sharing your ride with us. The friendships you all share and genuine affection for life shines through on this RR.

This is how a ride like this is done.

You guys and gals rock.


The end.

Amen.

I thought the same thing when I wrote my Moab report. I mean, it's Moab, c'mon everyone's been there.

You all have such a good writing flow that it was always the one I read when I only had a few minutes to read. Keep riding and writing.
