PONCHO'S BEACH TO MIKE'S SKY RANCH ( December 9, 2014)
As soon as the sun rose so did I from a long cold night on the cot. Poncho made me some hot coffee which was much appreciated and then I loaded the bike and left by 7 am. Was dirt road for an hour and a half to Bay of Los Angeles which was a good thing I was off that road cause the Coyotes were about to do a pre run of that road for the Baja 500.
It was asphalt for aways and then turned onto a real ugly, knarly, rocky road for 20 miles to the famous Coco's Corner. My timing was perfect cause a young couple there had just prepared breakfast for Coco and invited me to join them cause they had made too much, luckily for me. Got FKS sticker in Coco's book and had a coke and then departed , hoping to make Mike's Sky Ranch for the night. Was back on asphalt within 15 miles going through San Felipe and then turned west towards Ensenada. Continued on for about 30 miles and then exited on the dirt road for 31 km to Mike's.
On the way up I ran into two brothers who were on their way to Tierra del Fiuego and the one had a diesel bike made in Holland with the goofiest looking engine.
Was a nice road in on the bike and as I pulled in so did five other guys and then two more later on. Had 2 Australians, 2 Canadians, 1 African and 5 Americans. I was the only guy there without a GPS which they all could not believe and quizzed me for ages on how I find my way !!
After not showering for two days and almost smelling like Dingaan's crutch after a war dance, it felt real good to be clean again.
