I've rode through San Raphael once post Pancho. His place was locked up and no one was around. Pancho's passing has left such a large hole on that route that I now take the San Borja road out to the Pacific and continue south.

One day I hope his story will be put on paper (or online). He deserves a place in the historical record of Baja.

It was very cool that the producers if the film Devil's Road honored him in their movie.

I keep intending to write about my time with Pancho. Hopefully over summer.

Briefly, we first met in 1997 or so. I have so many fond memories of him. He celebrated my engagement, the birth of my two kids, and many other special moments. My daughter still sleeps with a stuffed animal that Pancho gave her.

We have a picture of him holding both our kids at our place in Bahia Asuncion. He'll always be a part of our family.

So let’s see the picture, that would be quite fitting.
