Baja adventure, overview.

My Baja trip in a nutshell;
Total miles on the bike - 3541
Miles on a trailer - 140
Days/nights in country - 12
Breakfasts of huevo rancheros - 12
Nights in a haunted motel - 1
Times faced death - 1

The ride down;
A = Home, West Valley City, Utah
B = Lake Havasu City
C = Jesus Maria
D = Loreto
E = La Paz
F = San Jose del Cabo

 The ride home with a very few differences is just a reverse route.

Baja is a beautiful place with beautiful people. Nearly everyone I dealt with had a friendly smile; the cynic will say that is because of the money the gringos bring to Mexico, and in some cases I would agree.
However, too many times I was helped by someone who didn't directly benefit from our interaction to believe it's all about money.
I loved the country, the roads, the food and the people.

I think all of Baja is magical....I can't wait to go back!

Lots of art in Baja

The complete ride report is on the following posts - just keep scrolling down for 7 more posts....if you can stay awake that long.

Since this turned out to be my final ride;
My total miles for 2013 - 20,961
All in all a pretty good year! :)
