Mark
If you get south of town about 5 k stop in at Ranco Pacifico and I'll buy you a beer. I'd love to compare stories and hear more about that abandoned camp.

Have you seen this site?


fat-bike.com/‎



Howdy, fat-bike friends! Sven here. Gomez and I have been working on putting together Fat-Bike Radio to do audio shows and we did a test episode yesterday to work out some details. This was our first shot at making a show and Uncle Gomez and I took it easy to get a feel for what we want to do. We’ve got mad plans! But check it out and let us know what you think.

We’ve got a lot more ideas for content but would like to hear from you and what you’d like to hear.

We updated our Tire Weights Page - http://fat-bike.com/2012/01/tire-weights-for-fat-bikes/

Yes just decompressing now. Sorry Larry, I got a mangy little puppy from Guerrero Negro and she took up all my time, couldn't make it over. Next time.

We had a chance meeting with TW on the gravel south of Gonzaga. He recognized the bike!

Photos to come in a week or so, I got some good ones!

Hey good to see people still interested in this. Man I've been itching to get back there ever since. I'm all over Google Earth looking at the terrain in nearby canyons. I'd like to try a south to north trip, maybe go in the same way but then turn left at the junction with Asamblea and then you only need to go about 4 kilometers up and you can see it's pretty easy to go overland into the next canyons to the north, eventually coming out near Calamajue with the help of the packraft over certain sections. Also I'd like to go up Asamblea as far as I can, it looks like there are some neat oases up there. I'd bring a bigger desalinator next time, I wasted too much time pumping last trip. Maybe even hook it up to the bike so I can pedal it while stationary...

Also trying to put together a movie of the trip, but I'm so busy. Just gotta get my priorities straight... It's been a year now so I really need to get that together.

I went back to Baja again in October with Mark (DosMars) for a quick trip to Punta Final and across G Negro. Looked for another puppy but couldn't find one. P. Final was really nice snorkelling. Oh man I got the Baja itch...

Couldn't find a stray dog in Baja. That's a new one. Just camp on any beach and a dog will adopt you.

Just read the whole trip report. Thank you so much for taking the time to post such beautiful scenery and wildlife photos, and let us travel along with you. I can't wait until you take another trip--fantastic report. May be the best thing I've ever read on the board.

That is the same feeling I had while camping and exploring on Baranof Island, about 50 miles south of Sitka, AK., near the shoreline of Whale Bay.
