Landed in La Paz, Baja today on the ferry from Topolobampo, Sinaloa.

As far as the guy in the floor, I think they reburied him there well after he died. I did hear, though, that they plan to remove him and reseal the vault because everytime the water level rises, he gets kind of "musty"

Figured I'd throw in some fodder for the wanderlust/warmerlust. My trusty steed for the next couple days:

A Chinese-born Dominican 'Galaxy X4000 Moto taxi edition' 150cc of fury. Got it with 1200km on it and both mirrors cracked (just Google Dominican drivers) the little thing purrs along at 80kph. Very rarely do you see one person on a Moto here. Usually along the lines of 3-5.

Dominican Republic. In the past week, this is the only >200cc bike I've seen:

And what a bike it is...

Is that Rob's 990? heheh.. The DR eh? I bet you're having a good time down there! I've been thinking about a PR or Cuba trip for a while now, PR cause it's easy, Cuba because it's not.. But tropical areas don't work with me very well. I'm literally allergic. So despite my curiosity I tend to head to the mountains rather than the beaches. I'm sure the scenery is better at the beaches...

lets see more travel photos!

As evidenced by the pasty arm holding the piña colada, I tend to shy away from beaches as well. It's warm and I have a friend living here so it was an easy call. The scenery, by all definitions is fantastic. I don't know why Brazil gets all the attention, the figures here are...cartoonish. It seems to be every 14 year old's dream - improbably curvy women, tiny 2t motos zipping around with absolutely no rules, significant crime. You can't go out at night without being accosted by the... "professionals" here. Al, Cuba is 100% on my list for that very same reason. The allure of the unobtainable...

Hell, I'm an EU citizen and can go any time. We need to get cheesebot EU or go through CaNAYdia. Or I could ditch him and just go!

CNR Idea

Looks like the Roaming Rally and other such rides are beyond what I can do with my setup and/or ability...

I would be interested is a CnR type ride in NH, Vt, or Maine...
Something with a loop of 90 miles or so... (relaxed day ride..)
Say a Thurs up, Fri & Sat ride, and Sunday return...

So if there is such a thing... I may have missed it...

If not, I looked at doing something in the Mt Washington area,
(but would go somewhere else as well, just looking for dirt roads)

Here is a .gdb file of some routes, which I have not ridden and don't know how well they would work... so there would be an experimental aspect to the ride...

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...0CampNRide.gdb

Maybe May or June to get the summer off to a good start...
Just wondering if this would be of interest to anyone..?

Here's where I'll be. I may do a spring CnR before that though. If any of you other Nutmeggers or Clam Diggers want to make the trip, it'll be a good time. Harpoon Brewery makes for a good break on the way up. We camp quite close to Canukistan, so watch out for moose on the ride. I'm not kidding.
