Lots of my trip posts attest to the truth that I trip 12 months spherical.   rain, snow, darkish of evening, just like the postal service solely I do it for recreation.  I’ve pushed my bike up the final snowy bit on Galbraith many a time and even carried my bike over elements of Wickersham within the snow.  This 12 months although I'm attempting just a little totally different tackle winter using; winter using in Baja.  My spouse and I packed up three canine and the whole lot we’d want for 3 months into and onto our CRV; we then pointed mentioned CRV in direction of Mexico and drove away from the snow, ice, and sub freezing temperatures of Ferndale, WA.

That is our first try at snow-birding, so we now have many issues to be taught, however after 60 years of dreary NW winters I used to be prepared; 30 years after leaving Southern California I feel my spouse was additionally greater than prepared and we now have household in San Felipe who discovered us a spot to lease.   After which to make all of it work out, my employer is keen let me attempt working remotely.

I haven’t given winter using a lot deep thought, however recently I’m pondering and coming to the conclusion that winter using actually depends upon your perspective.  One particular person’s winter using is one other particular person’s summer time using and vice versa.  Till now, winter using at all times meant 30 – 40 levels, darkish, raining with occasional snow and perhaps a peek of solar right here and there.   Right here in Baja their winter using is dry, within the 60’s, and largely sunny; Baja winter using is Bellingham summer time using.

After packing the CRV with all our stuff, canine and canine stuff, we had room for only one bike.  For that bike I selected my Scott Boulder “gravel bike.”   I didn’t know what to anticipate actually in the best way of street, dust roads, trails, and so forth. so I picked one bike that I assumed I may have enjoyable with regardless of the place I discovered to trip.  Additionally an enormous issue was one thing that was low worth and type of ugly in order to not entice thief varieties throughout our travels, largely pondering of inns and such alongside the best way.  My plan labored; put it up in our driveway at residence then 5 days later took it down in our driveway in San Felipe.   It did handle to take out a Taco Time drive via awning in addition to knocking some signage round at a Wendy’s whereas solely tearing just a little deal with bar wrap.

Right here’s my winter using tip; trip in Mexico.  Mexico is gorgeous right now of 12 months, no rain, no snow, a number of solar, not too sizzling, not too chilly, and simply sufficient clouds to actually spark off some nice sunrises and sunsets.
