The long road…

In a few days I’m driving a truck full of motorcycles south to La Paz, Mexico for a pre-run of part of the Baja 1000 course. I haven’t been able to find anyone to come with me, so it looks like I’ll be making the whole trip solo; something around 25-30 hours, or so I’ve been told.

Now I have to figure out which would be less dangerous: driving during the night, then catching a few hours of sleep around daybreak, drive through the day, then a few more hours sleep right before sunset, then drive through the night again. Or my other option is to leave during the day, drive until 2-3 in the morning, get a few hours sleep, then drive again around sunrise. I’ve heard Mexican roads aren’t always the safest to be driving down at night. But then I figure it wouldn’t be too safe to pull off on some side road in the middle of the night to sleep in my truck without really knowing what’s around me and a bunch of motorcycles in the back.

Should be cool to be in Cabo for the finish of the race, then the long drive home. Should be a bit of an adventure…
