Hey David,
Don't leave off the list the great Baja Vida DVD we sent you.
That will be a collector's item some day.

(I distinctly remember you saying you did not own a DVD player and I told you that this video was worth purchasing one just so you could see our great adventure)

Well, since you gave that to me, I got a DVD player... and watched you and your buds camp at La Gringa... the cooking scenes are a riot... I can see now why the wives stay at home! LOL

I also have Arvada George's helmet-cam videos of his rides all over the San Felipe desert and beaches from Nuevo Mazatlan and up Matomi Canyon.

Thanks for reminding me of yours...

Just so much Baja (to see), and never enough time!
