Taking advantage of our time off in Mulegé, and the decent Wi-Fi that we've found nearby, here is the long-awaited followup to our first Baja Divide video, Bikepacking Tecate to Vicente Guerrero. That video was published almost exactly 1 month ago, and this one picks up right where it left off. We included a bit of foggy footage that we shot as we made our way out of Vicente Guerrero, a selection from our last few days of riding, and a…

epic

It may be hard to imagine that the leg described as "the most challenging ride on the Baja Divide" would become our favorite, and I say that because it's surprising to me, but that's actually how we'd describe the route to Mulege. In spite of the two and a half day journey from San Juanico being extremely strenuous, everything about it was epic. There are a number of reasons why we enjoyed it so much, and none of them are…

Shoal Survivor

When our PDQ 32 was put up for sale, it was pretty easy for prospective purchasers to visualize what they'd be getting. I had, after all, blogged about every single facet of that boat since the day that we took possession of her. As it so happens, our friend Drew, another avid blogger (who I have linked to dozens of times), and regular contributor to Practical Sailor and other nautical magazines, has just listed his PDQ 32/34 for sale. I'm…

As sailors, we are well accustomed to making last-minute travel decisions based upon new or updated weather data. As we sat enjoying ourselves in the oasis of San Ignacio, thoughts of how the threat of rain (yes, we check the weather when we have internet) might affect our upcoming ride across some dry lake beds weighed our minds. Should we stick to our original plan and enjoy a day or 2 off at the Casa del Ciclista, or should we…

As a day of riding draws to a close, one where we're not planning on heading to a motel, we typically have our eyes peeled for a good, no, actually a great camping spot. Even though I wasn't previously aware of it before starting this trip, it turns out that I have a fairly specific set of criteria for what makes a spot great. Water nearby to bathe or swim in (no, not going to happen in Baja), shade (almost…

hotel

Vizcaino is, relatively speaking, a pretty big town. We took the bikes out for a ride this morning to explore, leaving most of the heavy bags in the hotel room. Wow, do the bikes seem light and maneuverable when they are unloaded. It's amazing, and so fun to just playfully ride around with no set agenda. I figured out how to make my camera case fit into my Rogue Panda seatbag harness. When not out exploring, we've been taking advantage…
