I'm jumping in here to the IPA on the Portal in year 2 of my trip,currently in the U.S.
This week sees my departure from Prescott Valley,where I spent a few days with friends and took care of some needed repairs on the bike.Prior to that I had been in the CO area,and prior to that my travels around the U.S. and Canada are on my blog.
I also stopped by the OJ office and spoke with Scott and got some needed pointers on Baja from him,as this will be my first time to visit there.
My journey started out in December of 2009 as a newly purchased (to me) BMW 1150 GS Adventure with 9,500 miles on it(it now has 44k) and was supposed to be just a two or three month "Get the Hell out Florida" exploratory trip.
Well,i'm still on the road and at this point have no intention of going back to any semblance of my life before this journey.
The Mexican 1000, http://www.norra.com/mexican1000.php is a vintage car and motorcycle race from Mexicali to La Paz,1000 miles over 3 days.I decided to follow it,photograph it,meet some of the legends of the sport who will be at and participating at the event and do a little exploring of the Baja from a newbies perspective and meet and see some local Baja life,including an Irish Bar in La Paz that Scott told me about.
My blog postings are subject to internet connection,as I do not have an air card,but I usually post 2-3 times a week.
My FB page is a little easier to follow instant updates:http://www.facebook.com/WhereTheHellisMurph
Thanks for reading and I look forward to joining the many many others who subscribe to the Portal and who are currently on IPA's.
