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.so just a little bump. like always i keep on working on my truck. mostly upgrading old parts or cheap ones for better.
i have been doing some prep work on my truck and still not comfortable with cooling. I just installed a 175 thermal stat and a extra spa fan on the front of my cbr trans cooler and a new fan/fan clutch. also after reading some post in other threads, i cut and remounted my front skid plate. i moved it about a year ago to clearance some steering issues and it may have been blocking some air flow. will have to test that part out.
still making a new rack over the back that will hold my tent cots and other things better or if i get a rtt.
this year i am scheduling 2 big runs in baja.
1st run is a tag-a-long NORRA fun run. as posted in the trips thread. the plan is to have no plan and see baja all the way down and back while following the rally. would be a good time of year with weather and a large group of racers and chasers so we would not be traveling much alone.
i have thrown out a open invite for others to come along. no commitment. split off when you want, re-join later in the run. if you can only do the 1st day or so then thats fine. a few friends may only go to san felipe then head home.
2nd trip is the 50th baja 500. it falls on the weekend after monday memorial day holiday. so i took the other 3 days off (i work a 4-10) and am planing on spending 10 days in baja. I have a friend that goes with a group on the holiday weekend for a run every year. they all go home on monday so i and who ever is around will hang out on the beaches/prerun til thusday. then i have a room in town for all the race festivity.
