Aw, sorry about the crashes - glad no one got hurt.
Too bad you didn't get to explore Laguna Hanson a little more.
The big rocks are really cool.
Maybe next time (there's always a next time!)

The writing on his new t-shirt said: "To save time let’s just assume I’m never wrong". Oh yes, so Barry.

What a great birthday surprise! good job with the "77!"

On-the-trail birthdays are the best.

Good times! I hope I can mark my 77th birthday on a motorbike in Mexico. You all can carry an impressive amount of stuff on those little bikes.

Waiting for more...

I would like to spend a little time out at Laguna Hanson. Those rocks are really cool and there a are a few geocaches out there that need to be found. Thinking back on it we should have stopped there and camped for the night so we could explore some of it but we didn't even think about it.

You're right on-the trail birthdays are the best, I can't think of a better way to celebrate.

Yes, we do have a lot of stuff. Touring on small bikes is it's own challenge and packing light didn't happen for any of us. I don't know about the rest of the group but I used everything I took with me. After I got home I re-evaluated what I told to see if there was anything I could have left behind and I was glad I had it all.

For me the only way to pack lighter would be not to take camping gear but I like having it even if staying in motels because there is a lot of security knowing if the bike breaks down or I can't get to town I have what I need to be able to camp comfortably.

Thank you for the RR. I'm heading to Baja late Feb. so I'm finding this very informative. Inmate John Downs has a minimalist RR that has me thinking this may be the way to go. Take care.....dave

When I was waiting in Spring Valley,CA for the rest of the group to show up, a young fella came over and was asking me about my CRF 250. Then he asked, is this a "starter" bike? I said, at my age, this could possibly be an "ender" bike. He started laughing and gave me the fist to fist shake

Now that's funny right there. Nice that you were out on "the other" coast. Too cold now in Nova Scotia.
