I had to go to San Diego last Wednesday and the previous Friday, so I haven’t really had time to write. Wornout and I usually take the Tecate way, which seems faster than waiting in line at the border in Mexicali. When we came back Thursday evening, coming in through the East border, we had to take a detour because the exit going East to Mexico was closed. However, we did have a short wait getting across. At any rate, there was a lot of traffic for a Thursday heading towards San Felipe and there were police cars leading other cars, I suppose to keep the speed down. Friday, Wornout tells me he’s going into town to get water but when the highway looked like the Indy 500, he changed his mind. Today, every gas station from El Dorado Ranch to town had lines, some out in the street. Nothing like waiting until Sunday to get gas. We decided to drive downtown (the Malecon was still blocked off) and just about every taco shop was full, as well as spaces to park. Justino went down to pick up cans this afternoon and he said the Malecon was full. Sorry, I don’t have any photos but take my word for it; there were tons and tons of folks still in town this afternoon. I did swipe a photo from Ruben David Gamez of the first night of Semana Santa. The Malecon was so full, these folks were on Mar de Cortez at the corner where the Seguro Social clinic is.

What a weekend and a great turnout for the Baja 250. Wornout and I went to three different places to take photos; the last stretch was just too dusty, so we didn’t stay long. The best photos of the three spots we went to was Km 43, although Wornout got a great video of MacCachren coming down the to the start/finish line. All I got was dust. I mean I have to have my camera cleaned; see if I’ll ever get the sand out of my hair and scrub my bag which holds my Canon and I didn’t even have that out of the car. Aside from the dust, it was pretty exciting. I’ve post a bunch of photos on my Faceless Book (San Felipe Baja Kat) if you want to take a look.
Happy Hump Day! It’s sunny but a bit windy today. It’s hard to get back into the groove of writing the Korner, but I’ll get the hang of it. Today at the Palapa at El Dorado Ranch is their beer fest. 15 different kinds of homemade beer. It begins at 11:00 to 4:00 p.m. So, if you’re into beer, this is the place to go.
I’ve had so many people ask me to start writing again so here I am. With the groups on Facelessbook and some health issues, I decided to take a break. I didn’t mean for it to be this long, but I got into watching novelas on Netflix, trips to the desert, playing volleyball last summer, trips to San Diego, etc. and the time just flew by. The 31st Annual San Felipe Baja 250 is right around the korner, March 30 to April 2. Here’s the latest “Schedule of Events”, courtesy of Score-International. By the way, I understand they will not be running on Power Line Road. Remember, pre-racing started yesterday, so take a look at the map and if you’re headed out to the desert, be careful and stay off the track. The map and schedule are on the same page. You simply have to scroll down the links on the left side of the page.
