The new neighbors in the parking lot started to grow. Strobel Motorsports out of Nebraska have a big team with a trophy truck, here with a friend's buggy:
Our buddy George who does Hollywood chase scene films with a gyro car mounted steadycam system, he has a buggy:
The Big Dog team and crew Dave, John, Marc, Matteo, Ed and photo by Karol:
The little village of Heroes de la Independencia has no Pemex stations close by, so people have gas for the racers in jugs sitting on the ground in front of their homes, and also a little store:
Fast sections near Mike's Sky Ranch.
Here are good examples of typical terrain in mid speed sections near Mike's , and a look at the treacherous ruts.
A much longer section of dangerous ruts was after Uruapan around RM 370 to 390 (Day 2):
This is a major road connecting east to west for cars yet 2 bridges were completely washed out, probably in Jan. 2010 heavy rains:
Other interesting parts between RM 260 to 290:
Back on Hwy 1 at RM 289 waiting for Dave to come and switch with Ed, under olive trees next to a wine vineyard:
From Hwy 1 to the Pacific coast RM 291 to 324 at Erendira, beautiful section, a tiny bit of silt. Way fun overall:
No Dave didn't crash - just adjusting fork suspension - really!
You can see the steep rocky uphill at Erendira that we did on Day 2, the end of this days ride.
Good stuff! I love Baja!
