Not that I saw.. When we were driving the course we came up on some huge dead, bloated cow that it looked like someone dragged into the coarse but that was the only thing we saw.

First stop was Big Burro in Ensanada. Awesome little taco place that we'e been going to for years. We rolled up and the cook was repping a Carli shirt without even knowing we were coming. Always nice to get a warm welcome:





We bailed from there and took back roads to get into the hills and get to the fun part. There's a cutoff road that leads through some gnarly terrain to get to the race course over some guy's ranch. Normally you jam through without a second glance but it was a race weekend and he charged us a 40 pesos to go through. For that ride, it was a small price to pay. We landed next to his ranch with horses, cows and the race track while we waited for the group to catch up:





Once everyone rolled up we took the course down to a small city where we were bombarded by kids looking for stickers from all the racers. Pat and Sage tossed out hand-fulls of Carli and Bilstein Stickers to the kids and we were off again headed south. Passing through wine country at 100mph was fun to say the least but we decided to jump back on the race course with varying terrain from 4 foot whoops to nearly grated roads until we hit a cutoff to a dry lake bed.

This was an awesome experience. We lined up all ten trucks side by side in the lake bed and lit it up.



We then headed out door to door exceeding 90mph (others going faster than me) over the dry lakebed which was wide open for MILES. After some drifting in the moonlight we decided to find a spot to camp and BBQ'd some wicked Carne and crashed for the night. We woke up to the BLAZING Mexican sun at 6:30 sharp and it wasn't long before we were messing around in the dry lake bed again; this time, with awesome visibility.














Next day was the Trans-Baja Expedition to the coastal side of Baja. Stay tuned!
