    Oh man, that sucks. We love riding through that area but yes, having your stuff getting ripped off is happening more and more there. And then there was that recent carjacking right on the highway near Gonzaga where they took 3 vehicles in one swoop!

    Coco warned us on our last trip through when we stopped to see him.

    Looks like Lester formed but is now pointing to the mainland,

    They are working by hand – the only way to get rid of that really fine, fiberglass debris left behind is by divers using an underwater vacuum device that is pumping it up to a boat above where it is filtered. Jacque Cousteau must be turning over in his grave.

    The long term fix to this is not just spending a lot of money to build the needed infrastructure but the long term commitment to maintain it and keep it working. We’ll see how that works out but I’m not holding my breath.

    Well, actually if I am in the IB area I will. ☹

    I wonder what the quality of their cars is like, how do they hold up? Baja is a very rough test for even the best made vehicles.

    I just met some people yesterday on a jobsite who had an aluminum hulled boat parked in their driveway with a big for sale sign. They are planning to buy an inflatable, saying they will save lots of money in monthly storage costs and love the idea of not having to pull a trailer anymore.

    You guys may be onto something.

    Really? That’s your solution? So nobody can pass through either way???

    Fulano’s blog was an ugly mess. He had some useful info sometimes but it was all shrouded in hate and anger with some real nut jobs posting on there.

    Your concern is something a lot of us think about. After this news of the murders of local police in addition to the recent highway carjackings and all the vehicle thefts in town that have plagued San Felipe in recent years, a percentage of dirt bike riders are beginning to think twice now about the area.

    It’s a catch-22, what many of us love about Baja is being able to explore and enjoy the wide open, remote areas and that’s the very thing that the cartels take advantage of to move drugs and hide. I guess each one of us has to decide how much we are willing to give up the one for safety from the other?

    Wow – sounds like an epic trip. I really want to be able to get to see China but have figured out that everything I want to see won’t fit in a 7 or 10 day vacation. I am fascinated with both their history as well as want to see for myself some of the dramatic social and economic changes that have taken place there over the last few decades. Maybe when I get older or hit the lottery! 😁😁😁

    Do you remember the brand by chance? Some of those Chinese motorcycles are making some headway in the US market.

    Wow, that’s very interesting to know. I knew these types of “weird” relationships happened sometimes but didn’t realize the practice was so wide spread across Mexico. It does help me to better understand the social framework in Mexico as I was having a hard time understanding how good people could down there could hang out with the bad guys sometimes? I have a close friend who was born in Tecate and I would see that sometimes when I hang out with him and his family and friends there. This explanation gives me a much better understanding of how colonias work and function down there – how people who didn’t even know how to read always knew exactly everything that was going on? This makes so much sense.
