Bike blog by Chris, the anti-imperialist biker who hopes the world figures shit out so he doesnt have to stop buying tofu from the store.

Yes, thats me, the anti-imperialist biker who doesnt want to stop buying his tofu from a store….  Ahh, so funny guy.

Stoked, in our room, yes, we sprung for a room, its been a fwapdoozy getting back into ninja biking shape, tingling arms/fingers/hands, sore back, ass, legs, completely changed diet, now I seem to eat only nopales, frijoles, rice, tomatoe, onion and thats it, no wait, corn tortillas, which isnt bad, trust me, no complaints, throw some hot saue on there and Im stoked, just a bit put off by the sudden lack of fresh veggies is all, but hey, ninja for life.

Downloading, gasp, a movie, Battleship with Rhianna.  Cant go too far wrong, aliens, RHIANNA (Fuck you chris brown, douche bag woman beater), and epic sound effects and explosions, perfect to heal by, especially when coupled with Vega and Healthforce nutritional supplements, the ones we haveleft, ofcourse, they must be carefully worked in with doses of magic cookies and apparently my new favorite beer, Dos Equis.

i dont usually drink mass produced commercial shitty beer, but when I do….

The ride has been excellent, saw a lot of major farms which I wrote a bit about in another post, kinda sad to see see howmthings are going in the world, but, as I said, its another post, read it:)

Movie isnt downloading, beers downloading great….  Having fun trolling people complaining on Facebook, all you have to do is take a trip to another country and camp, not stay in swanky hotels, hell, be brave and make it a “third world” country by bike!  Everything changes…..  Seriously, you do yourself a diservice by not recognizing this simple advice given tomus by everyone from Jesus, to Jack Kerouac to Henry Rollins of the Rollins Band.  GO FORTH and as a dude once told me, do some AMAZING things….

Falling more in love with Diana daily, not that I wasnt before, but just, hmmmmm, the roots are getting deeper and stronger if that makes any sense….

Wanna find the right woman to be your bride, or the right guy to be your beau, go TOURING ON BIKES!

Making super beer by adding “magic” tincture to mi cerveca, mi wasnt a misspell, it means my…  Spanish is obviously coming right along for me….

Just added and W O W…  No pain for this little ninja:)

Last night was spent in the police impound lot, or maybe Im just calling it that, of the Camalu Ensenada, Baja California Police.  So sweet, I of course had another day of no sleep?… Sigh, not sleeping sucks, thats kind of a duh statement.

Im drinking Dos Equis today… Ordinarily I would never drink it, as life is too short to drink anything but the best beer, and I realized, well, shit, thats a very relative statement!

Cheers!

Ensenada to La Paz, Day 3… No zombies….

 

We have a shady little spot in the back back of mi ranchero restaurant, the end of our 20k day.  A tiny day to be sure, and yet not to be dismissed as it was frought with all the agony and drama of a full length epic…
We were given a very cool send off by dianas parents, brother, yoga students and new teacher Oscar.
I was hung over as you may well imagine based on the preceeding entry and we went as far as Cafe Thomas to saddle up to our last soy milk latte in what I can only imagine may be quite some time.
Its been so long, the ten months literally fled by, and now here I am, completely out of shape, with added pounds in regard to my bust and waistline, dehydrated to the max and… Lovin it!

Is it legal?  We didnt know.  Is the area safe.  As a whole yes, if by safe enoughto be stark naked in the middle of the pre desert on the side of the primary road, again, we didnt know.  A tent, while cozy  is merely a taco, or a sandwhich as Gary Larson pointed out with his beloved talking bears… Oh look, little sandwhiches!

.We did end up rationing our water supply as, shocker, we ran very low, i have an ipad, but not enough water in the desert…. Sigh, one little bottle, and we had no where to stay, we decided against staying at the pay for night camping spot as they charged for the day and for the night and per person, pride drove us ever onward and we realized that choices would be few and far between.  Commando camping is always an option, but one must understand certain things.
Is it legal?  Who knows?  Is it a safe area, even bigger unknown…
Given that two of the road kill I had seen were BOBCATS, I was further disheartened, that 2-5 foot flattened rattle snakes were beyond common a little more serious, topped off by roadkill of a very serious looking Big Ass Dog, made my stomach sink a little further, but not so far that I still didnt have the courage to suggest we keep on riding, even better was when I said that the road probably just climber around the corner and then stopped and we would have somewhere good to camp….
It rose and rose, and once you were on it long enough to realize that it was still rising, based on the day, a person just got the feeling that itnhad to be done.  I say that cause i really hope thats what diana wasmthinking…

Though i neglected to take pictures this morning ofmsaidcampingnsite,mit was quite sweet, camoflauge wise, as for actuall sleeping, shit, no shade, so nuclear hot while the sun was even remotely in the sky, then freezing, i have a cazy heavy down sleeping bag which only just finished drying from the sweat, this had me super uncomfortable, any noise would freak me out, i thought we were being attacked by bobcats once and a giant dog when I mistakenly took the “motor braking” of a truck in the distance for deep growling….  In the distance, when I looked this morning we were a literal stones throw from the highway.

We finally found a spot, very sketchy at a recently installed drainage runoff concrete things, leaving the ground trampled enough that I felt confident hiding two bikes, a ton of stuff and a blue tent behind scrub brush and a tarp.
Point is, we made it, and it was rad:). We rode off this morning feeling very ill having not had water beyond carefully measured sips and the occasional gulp.
The little we did ride today was fought for, though as I told Diana what I fight for now is only because I was so indulgent when in Ensenada, the fine dining, great wine, superb beer, what could I do, musnt punish myself too much, just seems like when I slip a little, I usually end up slipping a whole lot further:)
We met friends from costasalvajae, they passed us and gave us thier info as they are doing anproject in Guerro Negro for  10 days, not sure if we will make it, BUT, we’ll see!
Very happy to be resting, healing, heat stroke is no joke.. Ha!  

The other was the fact that we are ninja.

Time to keep pedaling, this covers two days, we are on our third, saw two coyotes today cruising in the fields beside us, had a morning fire, got waaay overcharged for roadside coconuts and feel on top of the world:)

Aloha!

Things i learned and am stoked about and a Mountain Bike ride in Florida Canyon, SD, and Jessica hits a cactus!

San Diego has been beyond rad, I would really like to thank Jessica and Jacob, I learned some stuff, how not be a victim, key in this day and age, well, heck, I guess it would be key in any day and age…

My ride the other day and today in Florida Canyon and Balboa Park was, were too sweet.  I’m really getting the hang of this mountain bike thing=]

Someday I hope to not spend time on the internet at all, I would like to simply live my life, for now that is not to be the case…  soon=]  Let me do my do-gooderness in peace and not stare at this little screen with its aquarium glow, slowly melting my optic nerves from the inside out and reprogramming my brain at the same time=]

Jessica ran into a giant cactus which I found most troubling as it was huge.  She had many many needles in her arm from her encounter.  I chastised her for being silly.  It was akin to running into a giant green “stop” sign, only it had huge needles.

The San Diego Zoo was cool, and it wasnt cool at the same time, no need to talk about it too much, you can probably figure it out, unhappy animals, humans learning things to maybe stop the slaughter of animals, martyrdom etc.  we look at them in cages and yet I could never really shake the feeling that perhaps they were looking at us in cages….  Whos looking at who through what bars…
I learn not to be addicted to how things go and further how the way things go make me feel, it goes well, it doesnt go well, I feel good, I feel bad, it is of no difference.  It only makes a difference if I ride the roller coaster and the difference it will make ultimately will not be good for my health, which as I come to learn more and more, is E V E R Y T H I N G.
What else have a I learned…

Those with the least will most likely give you the most.
People are not stupid, or dumb, BUT, they are quick to choose ignorance…  Most often due to fear.  I know this best of all.
The change is coming, a change is coming…  Farmers markets are literally exploding all over the US, people are having conversations that I could only dream of a year ago.  Vegan fast food exists now in franchise form and hippie looking bearded guys are considered cool and sexy by mainstream girls.  Crazy world=]
At times I think we are on the verge of the big event, that will change history one way or the other, the great awakening or the great end.  My gut tells me we shall be free sooner than later,  all of the people who are getting on in their years agree that this is truly a very special/interesting/magical/most controversial/epic/etc. etc. etc.
Whatever is happening, I am glad I am alive, as for whether or not it is the best time to be alive, I would say that whenever your alive that would be the best time to live regardless of what is going on around you=]

I also know that I am just a Chris and no nothing of what goes on outside of my little world, so my words, in the bigger picture, arent worth the 1’s and 0’s it took to make them fly across to your screen=]San Diego has been beyond rad, I would really like to thank Jessica and Jacob, I learned some stuff, how not be a victim, key in this day and age, well, heck, I guess it would be key in any day and age…
