Well, like I said, this was way back in November, but basically me and the old man set out from San Diego, drove basically nonstop to Bahia de Los Angeles where we crashed at a cheap little motel. Got up early, had some hot cakes, hopped on the race course around mile marker 350 where my dad's section started, drove about 10 hours to San Javier (mile marker 750 or so), and stayed at another little motel (Casa de Ana) at the mission. Woke up early, skipped breakfast (dinner the night before was not so good), took up where we left off on my part of the course, and drove another 10 hours, making it to La Paz a little after dark. For the most part, the course was an absolute blast, really fast and smooth, it seemed like we were humming along at 50 or 60 most of the time, then we would be stuck in 2nd gear for 2 hours. There were alot of sections where we could have gone alot faster but we had about 500 lbs of crap in the back, which the soft Deavers didn't like. So we basically had roughly 1 inch of uptravel, and I sort of messed up with the shock mounts in the back so that the shocks would bottom out before hitting the bumb stops on the frame (not so good for the shocks) which I've since corrected. Other than that the Kings up front were amazing, there were so many times I thought we were gonna slam the front end so hard and we just kinda glided over it (well ok the rear end would slam pretty good every time). All in all it was an awesome trip, hopefully next time I do it will be with long travel. Oh and I should have pics up soon from prerunning San Felipe this past weekend - lots of mud.

We were basically to Cabo before the course turned east toward La Paz, Cabo would be no sweat.

Hm don't know em. I've never raced Barstow, don't think I want to after nearly flipping there twice while testing. I prefer Mexican courses - I'd rather dodge cows and Mexicans than giant holes that send you ass over head.
