No, not a place to bring the wife & kids but for a guy traveling solo it works out pretty good since it's cheap and you get all your dirty laundry washed and all folded up for you by some cute girls

Your wives are spoiled.
They probably get to eat indoors, too.






(that is a really good hot dog stand, though. Corner of Marquez de Leon and Colegio Militar )

Thanks, Scott!

Matt thinks I'm "high maintenance" because I like to sleep in a tent
(as opposed to just throwing a sleeping bag on the ground)

I'll tell him what you said!



Have a great time when you bring your family down - make sure they get some of those yummy hot dogs!
(and fish tacos in Miraflores)

Just got back, the dead cow is still there:



FYI, if you go through San Felipe again, you should stay at a place called "The Sweet Spot", the rooms are right on the Malecon and they're $50 a night, with secure bike parking.

Ha! That poor dead cow has seen his better days, not much left now.

The Sweetspot looks nice and secure bike parking is a must in SF. I'll check it out next time down, always looking for something new. If the "boom boom" is going all night, (not my thing) I'd rather be down at the El Cortez though.

It was nice and quiet, they close relatively early, plenty of time to get a good nights sleep. This is the house where he rents the rooms, he'll let you roll the bike thru both gates and into the hallway right outside your room. You'll have to get the bike up three steps, that's the only difficulty.





And it's right next door to the most amazing tacos I've ever had:


Oh and the dry lake bed wasn't so dry:





Sorry, hope I didn't hijack your thread!

Mmmmm, tacos el pastor...the saliva is pooling up just looking at the photo. Too bad I can't smell them. That lakebed will become a gooey mess with a little H2o, good thing I have a double secret bypass trail that is all sand .

Hey, thanks MonMan, glad you enjoyed it. Have a good trip in Feb., nice month to ride in the desert.

We rode past Piedras Blancas a couple weeks ago in the pouring rain heading into Bay of LA from San Ignacio. What did you think of the place? Worth it as an overnight destination, or just a stop if you run out of time?

I'm planning on staying a night there in an upcoming ride so will know more after. The husband and wife (Hiram & Talpa) are super nice and hard working folks. They have built a nice place that is worth checking out and I would like to give them a little business that they very much need.
I would e-mail them at least a day beforehand so they can prep some good food, etc.

We nicknamed him Peso Mike, I think his name is Mike? He busted tires with Marilyn Monroe for James Dean, designed the monkey wrench and many, many other escapades. Nice to see him still alive. Great, no not great, Fabulous RR,Thanks, Joe
