Back to Phoenix
Knock on wood, we'll be back in Phoenix on March 2nd or 3rd . That'll give us a couple of days to service the bike and visit with my dad and then we fly home on the 5th. My son and I will be back on April 2nd though, to pick up the bikes and ride back to BC. He to Victoria and me to Summerland. Not sure what your plans are but if you're rding back at that time you're welcome to join us. We'll be making tracks, though. I'm now self-employed so I have a pretty loose schedule but Brad needs to get back because his time off is limited. We arrive late Thursday night, April 1st and our hope is to be on the road by the following afternoon - with a goal of making it back to BC in 3 1/2 days. (weather dependent of course)
Brad is our son and on this trip he's leaving a few days before us. He flys into Phoenix this coming Saturday and he hopes to be riding into Mexico by Sunday - with a loose plan that we'll hook up with him at the El Tajin ruins around Feb 20th.
On another note, we took your earlier advice and we're going to visit the El Cielo Biosphere Reserve. It'll be late in the afternoon when we arrive so we're staying two nights. We'll unwind, drink a little vino, get a good nights sleep and the next day take a 4X4 tour of the reserve.
Maybe our paths will cross
