I live about 60 miles from the Tecate border post between California and Baja. I ride mostly in northern Baja, and the rides are usually only one or two days. Because of this, I spend most of my time in the Day-Tripping area complaining about how I don't have enough time for longer rides.

Over Christmas the stars aligned, and I was able to somehow get 11 days off in a row by using my one remaining vacation day and a few credit-days that I had from working some Saturdays.

My daughter was with her mom, The cat and dog were being looked after by Wanda-the-pet-sitter, and my awesome wife Rollergirl was okay with missing family Christmas with her mom. I am a grinch, so only see the holidays as a potential time to go play.

We made some quick plans to head south. Left work early on Christmas Eve. Got on our bikes and headed for the border.

Leaving our house




Almost there




Mandatory stop at "Tacos Mis Tios". Best tacos in Tecate




Ran out of day light on the first an many occasions

Spent the night at Rancho Santa Veronica. Woke up to a merry effin Christmas day of cold and rainy








A rare picture of the Grinch on Christmas day




Happy Christmas Rollergirl







Need to come back here when the weather warms up




The lake part of Laguna Hanson was underwhelming





Slurp....





Rollergirl is starting to see a pattern developing




A long cold day in the saddle. Excellent Christmas day!
Rollergirl accuses me of being completely un-romantic and a lousy planner of restful vacations. I think it's just me trying to hide from Santa.

Cold and windy. Time to get going

I don't know how Roller Girl could accuse you of being "unromantic" when you take her to the best (and most romantic) cantina on ALL of Diablo Lakebed.

Hog, Tom, Mesa, Moto thanks for joining in.


Time to see if I can get the rack fixed




What do you mean we aren't supposed to look at the bright light?



Six dollars please.
I love Mexico!




Slab to Gonzaga. $85 for a room and $20 for garlic shrimp. Alfonsina's was packed and needs some competition. However, hot shower, decent bed, out of the all-night-long-cold-wind, and happy wife made it worth worth the money.
