Good Morning Mexico


And remember, no looking back, just forward.

Trip began Monday at noon from San Jose where I hit the 101 south to Santa Barbara, stopping off in Montecito for the evening at the invitation of Drs Mike & Mary Dan Eades. She had amazing sous vide ribeye steak at the waiting, accompanied by roasted asparagus, cauliflower puree, and a fantastic caesar salad. I provided the old vine zin. Sat around the table and chatted until midnight and rest assured: all the world’s problems have been taken care of.

Soon after the morning rounds of cafe Americanos, I headed out, down the Hwy 1, and stopped off in Malibu for a brief lunchtime visit with Mark Sisson in his backyard, overlooking Malibu canyon. More world problems solved.

Picked up my brother at SAN in the late afternoon and we snatched a cheap room at Motel 6 just a few hundred yards from the border and beginning now, 5am:

  1. Gas the X5 BajaMobile, check oil and tire pressure.
  2. Hit the Starbucks for a triple-shot latte.
  3. Cross the border.
  4. Drive until Lareto, which we ought to be able to do by 8-9pm.
  5. Cabo by lunchtime Thursday.

Updates to follow.

    Ahhh, just remember that book you’re writing too while you’re down there Richard. Get cracking and get that fucking monkey off your back.

    If there is one thing I despise more than governments or religion, it’s bloggers who promise to write books and then don’t deliver.

    Sorry, I guess I missed a few posts. Is this a permanent relocation, or a seasonal here/there (or temporary) thing? Is Bea staying behind?

      All of the above, somewhat. Right now I’ve leased the place through Oct. Not looking beyond that yet. Bra will minimally fly down a few times, or perhaps bring the dogs and stay all summer. She’s also considering retirement.

      Lots of options and we’re keeping them open.
