Our group is going down for memorial day weekend as well this year. Tentative route is Ensenada -> Ojos -> Valle De Trinidad -> Diablo lakebed -> SF -> Alfonsinas then back.
Any chance we cross your path?
I am sure our paths will cross. just talked to geoff and i will be taging along with his baja bash group for the 500.

I wish I had a job with paid vacation... I’d love to tag along.

What Dan said ^
If you're going to be down there around on memorial day weekend it would be rad to meet up in Mexico again, Chris!
hell yea. can i try out that hammock? would be great with a beer.

here is a picture of the rear rack. haven't figured out how to make the rear mount yet. making it so it flips up so looking for a quick release.

holly crap, it was brought to my attion that i brought my ranger home from the dealer 30 years ago. picked it up from offroader icon dealership fairway ford (dick landfield) the same day that Micky Thompson was murdered. april 16th 1988.
i still have the window sticker. paid 11K

been flogging it ever since.

its off to baja for another bad ass trip. NORRA bound. dick landfield will be racing, maybe get him to sign the truck somewhere.

back from baja. super bad ass trip but the boarder was super not going both ways. got pulled into secondary as usual because with a 4-link all loaded it sags a lot. but then they put me through the x=ray. then they let the others go. then the fed cop comes with his dog. they swore i had pot. dog jumped all over my truck. in the back on my fuel cell and roof. then inside behind the seats. left his slobber. the guy found my buddies diabetic stuff and was super excited to show his boss. boss laugh at him and said no, not illegal. he was pissed but let us go. while in baja things were great. did not take many pictures because my buddy brought his drone. flew a lot over tech, during the race, videos of my truck. last flying it over camp it deiced it had enough and dropped to the ground. busted up good. the sd card ejected. we looked for 2 hours. all gone. nothing.

boarder coming back was again 2+ hours like always. once again we found our selfs getting x=rayed in secondary.

cant wait to go back for the 500. scheduled 10 days off. 1st part i will hang with geoff and his baja mini tour. then on my own for tue-thur, then in town at hotel for tech start/finish.

whos coming??

I'll be down there in San Felipe with a group May 25-28. Will you be on that side of the peninsula? We're posting up in the same spot for a few days with no real agenda, so it should be easy to meet up if Geoff, you, and "tour" are in the area.

We just got back from the pacific side a couple weeks ago too. April is a BITCHIN time to be down there.
Sorry to hear about your issues with crossing. Next time tell them it's for a bachelor party trip and they let you go straight though (at least that's what they did for us this past time).

How hot is it normally for the 500?? I'm guessing you guys just stay on the Pacific side.
inland can get uncomfortable hot. I dont sleep well sweating. along the beach is great. up at mikes will be fine. come on down.
