Dawn to dust, Baja 2014.

Well here we go again, 2014 the 3rd chapter of our Baja adventure, this year Charlie is joining us for the trip.
We met this morning in Sedona at Jerry's house for breakfast and relaxed planning of the next two weeks, things we wanted to see, routes wanted to hit and avoid. Reservations made for fishing, houses, dinners for special places. We have plans to make side trips to several Missions, fishing days, whale tour, ice cream stop, beach side trips, petroglyphs, yurts, old friends along the way.

Today is a road day from Sedona to Algodones, it was 32 f earlier and up to 55f now, super nice in the warm sun, expecting 80+ as we pass Phoenix later today. Dinner at the casino and plans to cross the border early on Tuesday morning, San Felipe for a snack and some gas, then on to Alfonsinas. Tomorrow is Jerry's 71st birthday and we will celebrate with him at the end of the day over a dinner of fresh sea food and cold Pacifico.

Let's ride!
Nels, Jerry, Charlie are looking forward to the next 10 days of dawn to dust as we ride, eat, laugh, fish, explore and enjoy our Baja adventure.

Day 2

Hey.......it's Jerry's birthday, 71 today and we are up before 4:00am!
After a relaxed morning in Sedona, my intro to Charlie, loading up and checking last min stuff, we made it to the casino at Algadones last night. Super dinner inside of beef ribs, mashed potatoes, asparagus and a bottle of red the share. Since it's a birthday we got desserts too.

Early to bed and early to rise, the border crossing doesn't open until 6:00am so we can take our time, and I have a wireless connection. Think I got the photo thing figured out?

After some coffee I will take some group shots and try to post when we stop later today or tonight if possible.

Dinner tonight at Alfonsinas.
Let's ride!

Yurts!

Hey,
We are in San Ignacio and having a blast. Judy and Marge made it down in the car to join us for a great dinner at Tootsies.
Charlie, jerry and I left Alfonsinas this morning headed to see Coco, Coco is well and full of character. Then out to the dry lake bed for a few hot laps and then south to San Ignacio for a hot shower and a nice dinner with the girls.

Tomorrow we are headed to see some whales.

BMW. = bike more work???

Had to do a bit of mechanic work along the way. Charlie's kick stand was about to abandon his bike, one bolt gone......the other about to be. Found a hardware shop and a replacement bolt for the missing one.

I enjoy giving them a tough time, as do they.

BMW. Is Bike More Work! [IMG][/IMG]

We are not in WI anymore.

Under the palms and enjoying sunny warm weather, glad we are not in a winter storm again of northern WI.
