One more stop or two for gas and we were in San Quintin before dark. We stayed at the Mission Santa Maria Hotel the old El Presidente. The people there are so nice and accommodating, great food, bar and sleeping rooms and did I say, GREAT SHOWERS!
Day Three, Sunday started out with a great breakfast at the hotel and then on to Camalu for our first gas stop.....or so we thought. About 15 miles into the ride one of us went down in the "Black Ice" by the salt farms. If you've been there you know what I'm talking about. Most of us had race radios so we were able to bring everyone back to assist with the injuries. Rich didn't believe he had broken anything but he only made it about 10 more miles down the beach before he was in some serious pain so from there we rode to the highway and onto Camalu to met up with the chase truck where Rich would spend the rest of the day.
Next we regrouped near "Shipwrecks"
It was another beautiful day in Baja.
We returned to Santo Tomas and met up with our chase truck and loaded the two quads. From there the remaining three bikes road to Uruapan and took the old Baja 500 course to Ojos Negros to the Pemix station for more fuel and then the El Compadre trail the same way back to the border.
We met up with our other riders and the chase truck about seven cars from the back of the line at the border. We stopped by to say hi and call them Suckers and then off we went to the front of the border line. We crossed in about 30 seconds and I was home in 30 minutes from there.
What a great weekend riding with good friends.
Viva Baja.....Scotty, It's still very unsafe in Baja.....so much beer and so little time.
