Baja March 2013

I just can't stay away from Baja, and it doesn't help that the weather this time of year is just about perfect! We had day time temps in the 80's, and the nights were in the 50's. We crossed over the border in Tecate, where we ran into a couple of friends of mine who were on a trip to the Pacific side to ride dirt bikes. They were going to stay at Mike's Sky Ranch nested up in the mountains, but we were heading to the beaches on the Sea of Cortez. I don't know about you, but I was ready for some warm weather. We stayed in San Felipe the first night in a beautiful custom home within a gated community,...

January 2013 Baja Adventure

Where do we start? Well, it all started with James when we were sitting around a camp fire in Anza Borrego for a weekend camping trip and he started asking me about Baja.

Saddleback

I sometime get caught up in this idea that I’m missing out on the “Great Adventure” that others are having. Adventure as defined in the dictionary is an exciting or unusual experience. You don’t need to be in a foreign land to have an adventure, sometimes you can find it in your own backyard. So Christina and I decided to make a run to the top of Saddleback and enjoy a picnic dinner at sunset. The road up to Saddleback isn’t the most challenging but with speed it can be a lot of fun. To get to the peak is about ten miles off-road and on the way back I let Christina drive. Letting her drive...
