Catch up post...

Hi all, I am finally in Mexico and ensconced on the beach in San Felipe, Norte Baja. I had plenty of excitement with the old wing/sidecar and decided maybe I would do a bike trip to Mexico later and in warmer weather. I will have to see what develops. I am also scheming on a newer bike and sidecar....someday I have to let go of the idea I need to drive and ride ancient equipment even though I love the old beasties.

I did come in my little Astro Chinook van and while I find it hard to believe...I think Dina is a bit happier and more secure in the van...go figger!

I find some mechanical issues with the van as well and bought a pair of new shoes for it in Yuma....the mechanic who was to align the front end said it was too worn for alignment.

I will replace the parts myself when I return to TorC.

I may rethink how far I go but it sure is good to be here in SF at the moment.

It is overcast and a bit rainy but the good thing is that it moves through fairly fast.

I expect the next few days to be really pretty uneventful although full of fish tacos and lard cookies, but nothing to write about so will slow on the posting for now....

Thanks for reading and I will make an effort to do a more exciting bike trip the next time...

Peace and happiness for the season and new year...



  1. Well, I am glad to know you are in Mexico:).

  2. Glad to see you made it down even though it wasn't how you planned. Can't wait to read more!

  3. Thanks folks....I am happy too. I so love Mexico. Not many tourists here again this year so it is pretty empty and a lot quieter. Especially since the bar at the entry to my campground is closed. Can't say I am sorry to not have to wear earplugs to sleep.


  4. Glad to hear you made it, Bri! Have a relaxing time.

  5. Thanks Sue, Thanks again for you and Steve's hospitality! It was awesome. So were/are all the good words and thoughts.

    I am headed for a meeting right after I get off the internet....that will be a nice addition to the day.

    Hugs to you both..
