Home after long days on small bikes

Our short stay in Loreto was um, interesting…

When we arrived well after dark, after a hard day of long riding in strong winds we immediately found our way to the hotel restaurant pausing only long enough to swap our smelly motocross boots for more comfortable shoes.

The Southern Offroad Reaches

It feels good to be back onto the blog. A million thanks to everyone for all their well wishes. Now – let’s see how this ride wraps up!

Unexpected Ride Home

On February 6th we received word that Deby’s mom’s health took a downturn so we decided to cut the trip short and ride north. We made it home in time to spend a last few days with mom before she went home to be with the Lord on February 15th. Helen was 94 and lived with us for the past 18 months. Below is a picture of Arieta, her caregiver, Deby and Deby’s mom Helen. She will be missed.

I should have posted this sooner since I’ve received many e-mails wondering what happened to the posts and if we were ok. Yes we made it home safe and in record time. We arrived home yesterday from the funeral in Wisconsin and are settling into the changes in our household.

I’ve gone through all the pictures and am ready for the final ride post. We had some great riding and whale watching to report. Hopefully I’ll get that out soon.

I had contemplated doing this route on previous rides but decided against it on the bigger bikes. It turns out that was a good call…
