Simi Valley, CA to Yuma, AZ

8am: the 4 bikes, all lined up and ready to go. Just need their riders to climb on and get them started. If you look real close, you'll see Doug's co-pilot, Sharka, strapped on to the front of the right bike.

Out on the road, Doug and I riding tail. Tim is leading, Bev is riding second, Mark is third.

The day started with some sprinkles in Southern California along the coast, but after lunch we found the heat.

Mexico is on the other side of that fence. Notice the Border Patrol car keeping this empty street safe.

Gateway to Mexicali, Mexico.

See? Sign to the left of the door says "to Mexico"

Sign says "Arizona State Line." Yuma is only 2 miles from the border of CA.

4pm: end the ride for today. After checking into the motel (which I got a great deal on with my military ID) we headed for the pool to get nice and cooled off. Tomorrow starts us on the road at 6am, in hopes of missing most of the dry, Yuma heat. And I should get to see the Grand Canyon by the time we finish the day!
