Only half a mile different.... I'm sure it goes further, but I can't be sure.

Also the year before.

Between those trips the progressed about 5 miles.
At the Palapa Chair trip in Jan 2010, progress south was only slowing due to some big bridges to be constructed.

I predict they reach Gonzaga Bay by 2012.

Actualizacion

Pavement runs at 76.0 miles south of San Felipe.

Just 14.00 more and will reach Bahia de San Luis Gonzaga (Alfonsina's or Rancho Grande)

Really!? Only 14 miles of dirt left? So the trip is a lot shorter now? Dang... that's about 13 miles further than I anticipated...

They were only 25 miles from GB in March and the bridges were about done. something must be holding them up if they are 14 miles away now. Maybe they are starting from the other side at Mex 1 now for logistical reasons and will meet up with other pavement from there?

That road never was good riding anyway, just a wide gravel road, not a trail, so the pavement will be nice to get to the good stuff. The bummer is that its going to connect with Mex 1. Thats going to be the big rig road, which sucks. Lets hope it takes them a while to connect it.

Was thru there on Monday, and it seems like everything has stopped.
Taking a holiday break, or?

Measured 26 miles of pavement.

We were there 12/27 and I think our measurment was a tad less than 26 miles, but around that ball park. However, all the heavy equipment is just gone. NO evidence of any construction

Here are a couple of pics:



The other direction:



Still a nice ride from Bay of LA to San Franscito and then out to El ARCO.

So how long does it take to get to Gonzaga Bay from Puertecitos now? It seemed like 2.5 hours last year in my 4X4. I was taking it at a moderate pace.

A few years ago on a KTM 990 it took me 47 minutes. I had a couple of oh shit moments though.
