Out of San Ignacio


I don't think this has been posted here yet. I stumbled across this amazing Patagonia to Alaska YouTube by a solo female motorcyclist. Here's part of her ride through Baja. She obviously enjoys adventure and Baja.

Wowsers... I watched this one and the next, all the way to San Felipe. So funny to hear her amazement with the cardóns and cirios (she had no idea what they were called). Interesting to see a little village at San Rafael built up by Pancho's former home, where she got a hot meal.

If You Think Baja is a Challenge? You Ain't Squat!


This is to add to the thread "Out of San Ignacio"

If you think you are a bike rider - you ain't squat if you haven't walked in her shoes!

If you think off road in Baja is a challenge- you ain't squat!

If you think you're tough and can handle adversity- YOU ain't squat compared to her!

She gets to Baja at 1:28:00 in this final video What comes before is incredible!!
There is a reason why she has 1.5 million subs

She doesn't pretend to be an expert off road rider. She rode a Honda 300 Rallye with luggage from the tip of South America to Prudhoe Bay solo taking as many back road routes as possible. Her spirit of adventure and optimistic outlook are very apparent. Also her photo skills are excellent. Prior to the Americas trip she rode an Enfield from India to Europe solo. No camera crew or support vehicle. While I have always admired riders with your level of dirt riding ability I also think that this style of long distance unsupported travel takes great skill and mental strength that few have.

Snagletooth,
She is overlanding. She is not doing little day trips on her local single track.
I suspect you could not begin to manage a mutli-country overlanding trip, earning money by youtubing your travels.




Woke!

I was impressed with the number of cameras she employs (three I think during her rides) plus a drone camera that follows her above!

I have to admit I have watched Itchy Boots (Noraly) for years on her adventures. Kinda got attached cause I had a 250 Rally for a couple of years. I couldn't and wouldn't do her adventures, Asia, Russia, South Africa. I'll stick to my day trips around here up the Easy Cape and some races every now and again.

If you get a chance watch her series, interesting progression as a rider and the trips were fascinating.
