this tunnel you have to swim to, its right near the arch, right through this tunnel you can swim to the arch but i didnt dare.
the waves rip through it
on this beach in playa grande, its on the pacific tip, its about 1/2 mile from this arch. its not accessible just to walk to. its seperated by ocean and cliffs that jet out into the ocean so you must wait till may or take a water taxi out.
there are big red signs on this beach not to swim. people die here all the time from the under tows are the worst in the baja. the beach is so steep the waves are big and the ocean will take you under and there you are with the fish, dead.
so anyway we swam out in the dead zone to get this pic. some old people saw us come around the cliff and they almost passed out. they were yelling at me and said i was stupid.
i said ya i already know that thanks, but see it can be done. they thought it was crazy but they are old and dont know about sly and how i roll.
this is the rock on the pic below on the far left, the big seal rock, the kayakers can paddle out from the main beach, its about 1/2 mile out.
this is the last piece of rock on the baja, you cant see them but the sea lions are out on the that lower part sun bathing.
the big ass boat cant go close since its under 10 foot deep. come back in may and walk under the arch
there are condos within 1/2 mile up the beach where all the rich people live. were staying at a friends place with all the rich people and they want tips for everything. all the locals think if youre white and american, if youre here then you must be rich and they want to sell you everything and get tips for saying hola.
she crashed us, ship wrecked in mexico. good thing theres wifi
we took the buccaneer boat out to the arch

delta has direct flights to cabo from slc. thats pretty sweet. i have not been down here since dec 31st 2000, when me and bart rode down from san diego. we didnt ride the whole way but chippo didnt even make it 3 days. he went home cuz he couldnt hang with the kilojoules we were puttin out. back in 92, 93,94 i rode down here the whole way with a sag wagon. its around 1100 miles from san d to cabo. 1 road, old beat up paved road. lots of fish taco stands along the way. and lots of 100 mile sections with nothing.
its a good trip. you should try it.
but nowadays you have to skip riding through tj or you might get capped.
since i have long hair people randomly try to sell me drugs everywhere i go. i dont know if its for real or a joke. i cant believe how blatent drug dealers are. no wonder they get caught.
if you know alex rock hes in hawaii this week gettin hitched, wish him luck. seems he found a nice girl.
anyway his wifes parents hooked us up with this sweet condo on the beach of the pacific at the very tip of the baja. its way nice and they have wifi with cable.
what more can you ask for
wifi and cable, sun and blue skies with an option to head north on route 1 to la paz. i might get out and do some rides but im kind of busy workin on my tan, sleepin and gettin massages.
the whales are in view and we probably will take a tour boat out into the ocean tomorrow and spear some of them.
its been a tough day, i need to catch up on my beauty rest.
maybe i'll get some sweet pics tomorrow

it rained a bit down south, but you have to know where to go and where not to go.
if you dont want to ruin the trails or get muddy.
to the locals, i didnt ruin your trails. when i went on barrel, zen, green valley, jem, and VRRT. there was no mud. a few soft spots, a few small water holes. lots of open trail. i didnt pass one biker the whole 3 days.
i dont understand it, maybe i was going so fast i just float over the top.
who knows, it will probably be sunny tomorrow and the water will dry up by tuesday.
i had to head out to catch a plane so i pointed the man wagon north and floored it.

went to st george, stayin here til sat.

whoever went to st george last week should come back, its still sunny and warm.
if you want to see how dirty the air is in slc go change your car air filter and see what youre breathing.

i went outside in the valley for a minute without a gas mask and didnt make it back to the house before i passed out.
they had to call the medic
so before i die, i have a 3 step plan.
im goin to alta today
st george tomorrow
by the time im back it will be feb and i will have a sweet tan and the air will be clear.
on the news they say stay inside, but the question is why is that better
its the same air, you have an open door to the toxic sludge, so your furnace has a filter. big deal, it doesnt work right.
they say on the news dont drive or light a fire.
do you think anyone really does this
no they dont give a rats ass
thats why there is this problem to begin with.
dont blame the weather
year after year the same problem, but it gets worse. everyone waits for the wind to come and blow the problem away.
no snow till next tuesday.
im outtttta death breath
dv isnt deer valley, its darth vader

i chickened out on hard coin so we blazed thor, snake, crest and milly. then i had to go cuz i was blown
they opened up milly bowl today and i dont have the skills to rip that, so i watched them blaze the cork screw
this is moose, hes kind of fat and lazy.
he got this cable stuck on his mid section the other day. i had it rolled up and he crawled into it and then couldnt get it off so he just walked around with it on.
he was mad so he came and sat in front of me so i would help him.
