7 (of 7): From Bahia de Los Angeles to Coco's and San Felipe:
GPS: You can download the GPX tracks files for this section, named "6-Bay de Los Angeles to Coco's Corner" and "1-San Felipe to Cocos Corner" at GpsXchange.com under Baja (look for snooker).
Day 12, back north to base camp and the truck in San Felipe. I left BdLA on a full tank, filled up again at the T junction on Hwy 1 for barrel gas.
I could have asked Coco's for gas but I figured I could get gas at the Rancho Grande mini mart Pemex (at Alfonsina's) like on the way south. But being Wednesday they were closed (kindof a mid-week siesta day or maybe a Fat Tuesday hangover from the night before?
In any event I was slowing down and really conserving to try to make it the Pemex at Puertocito and hoping it was open or I'd be going door to door there! But they were open.
At the Federali checkpoint a guy in an amazing looking 4WD van and trailer pulled up. Got a pic of his rig later in San Felipe. Seriously cool.
At Coco's the jeep party led by Kiki and the rest of the wacky Canadians was on the prowl south. Coco showed us some really old motorcycle club photos from SoCal he still has in storage there. A lot of his stuff like sign in registers was stolen when he was in the hospital recently for diabetic complications. Not cool.
Some Americans had just given him some new stickers that said Coco's Corner and I noticed later he stuck one on my bike. He can sneak around below the radar and nobody notices him! ha! It is the only sticker on my bike, I just left it. Makes me smile now that I'm back to the cubicle life. ugh.
