Canuck heading into Baja Nov. 1
Hola y Shalom --
Thanks to this forum and its selfless contributors, I have a wee inkling of what I'm getting into. 1100RT and I depart interior BC October 21 to attend HU Traveller's Meeting Cambria Oct 25-28. Primed to meet some (if not all) of you savvy and cordial individuals there, and stoked to immerse myself in the collective spirit of adventure riding... far, far removed from the mediocrity of the ad biz and the orifice, er, office.
For the record, I quit my job to do this. Sold my old Ducati and bought an even older Beemer with a comfy seat and a fairing the size of Manitoba. Sold/gave away most every "collectible" and stick of furniture I owned, crammed all the rest into a 6' X 8' locker.
Strangely enough, NONE of my friends or family members thinks I'm crazy to do this. They know me too well.
Warmly welcoming intrepid company for the jaunt down Baja commencing November 6th-ish, likely crossing at Tecate. I'm bound for te La Paz ferry to Mazatlan and thence to Guatemala for several weeks of Spanish study and touring (minus parka) and mingling. Onward southward, no set agenda but a smile on board. Possibly parking awhile in Panama -- if not elsewhere sooner.
Any of my (loose) plans jive with yours? Suggestions? Admonition? Moral support? Drop me a line!
Yours in just getting the heck out there,
Seth in BC
