Baja in January

Thinking about the weather in Prince George in the winter time and not I’m not getting too excited about it. So why not instead do something different. I will be unemployed, Tanya will have 4 weeks of vacation, why not go to Baja Mexico. Doing some research, it looks like we could do it for about $2000 (one month, on our bikes, including airfare).

Where to start, like most things, you need some research, so we went to the library and checked out a bunch of books on Baja. Thinking of flying to San Diego and heading to Cabo san Lucas and then back to PG, sounds like a fun idea…

Tanya is telling me about the desert from the Lonely Planet guide, its funny, because I am listening to Neil Young’s On a Horse With No Name, which is about a desert,(edit, as I was informed by a friend, this song was preformed by America not Neil Young, and pushed Heart of Gold from the number 1 spot for music back in the day, it certainly sounds like Neil, but it is not), which makes me think that I should go to Baja. So maybe I will, maybe I won’t, it will delay our trip to SE Asia and the rest of the world trip for a few months. However for the past week I have placed the weather of Thailand and Malaysia on my homepage and I see that it is still the rainy season, and maybe we should pros pone our big trip for a few months (until December 2008), which mean we will have more money saved, and therefore more money to spend on traveling, which we could spend in Mexico. This is also a good idea because it will give us a good chance to see what it is like to ride our bikes across a larger area and hit up SE Asia after the rainy season. The next few weeks will tell us if this is a good idea.

Summer 2007

The past summer was great, we managed to keep ourselves very busy. Among from the usual things someone would do in the summer we also rode our bike to Purden Campground, Road our bikes from Saskatchewan Crossing (~50km south of Columbia Icefields on Hwy 93) to Banff and back, did the Skyline trail in Jasper, went to the Salmon Arm music festival and did a nice hike 166km east of Prince George. The weather was pretty bad, but our spirit’s were high and the summer went way to fast.
Now it is fall, the leaves have all turned a yellowish orange colour, and now I try to enjoy the rain before it turns into snow. All that seems to occupy the our minds is how long it is until we go traveling again and how fast our money is accumulating. It is pretty sweet, when you don’t really have too many expenses, or kids, you can put a large amount of money into savings.

Over the past month I have been working on make a new blog design, and you can see it right now. It wasn’t easy, I did a lot of research and lot of reading to figure out how to do it, tell me what you thing of it. I was going to have a neutral colour scheme for the blog, but I found that was too boring, so I stepped it up and used a redish warm colour. The last design was a blueish brown colour, which was on the cooler temperature. Another addition is the banner at the top, it changes with each reload. Right now I have five images, But I hope to increase that number. I don’t know if anyone will read this post, but if you do and get this far in the post please tell me what you think of the new look.
