At the old salt tramway in Saline Valley. Yes, for those who are wondering, this picture is just a little bit doctored up (but by an actual doctor LOL), but only the color!!!!

Romy found this cabin on Google Earth in the beginning. We then tried to hike to it last year with no successes (we hiked but never found it). This year, we tried to hike to it again and had a friend (Katherine) come with. It started out at Burro Springs at Saline Valley. We ram rodded our way up into the hills and tried to get to high points so we could get a better view (to try and find this cabin). Either Katherine or Romy spotted it. It was getting dark and cold but we all decided it was worth it to keep hiking to get to the cabin. I am soooo glad we went! We learned it was called Murder Cabin. . . . for mysterious reasons (you will have to go and find out)! Freaky!

Whenever we need to go to downtown Ensenada and park all of our vehicles and trailers, we do so next to this seafood stand and then we eat our hearts out! Clams, shrimp, and octopus!

Went pre-running mile 40-ish to mile 80-ish on the Baja 1000 course. I drove the 4Runner for the whole thing except this crazy uphill climb.

Pre running the Baja 1000 alongside the Desert Dingos today. #baja10002015

Happy Birthday! We finally went to Mom & Pop's Diner in downtown Carson City for breakfast. I had french toast and hash browns. It was soooo good!

Still here, got the engine in, but it is ticking like crazy. I took a picture looking to the east behind me with the last snow on the top of the mountains from earlier this week.

Found an engine at an auto wrecker next to the Reno airport. Weird thing is that as they were moving the engine with a fork lift, suspended by a chain, the chain broke just as it was almost loaded on our trailer. The engine fell on the concrete from 5 feet off the ground! The auto wreckers scrambled to find another engine that would work, and they found one. We've been running into so many obstacles to get moving, I am beginning to think there is some divine intervention occurring.

2baru's engine broke down catastrophically as we were driving south on 395 out of Gardenerville, NV. We were only 30 miles away from home. The insurance covered a tow truck to get us back home, so we are still in Carson City. We went to Harbor Freight and got a cherry picker (we already have one but it got packed away by the movers) so we could remove the engine and now we are trying to find a replacement engine.

Sandia is paying for one car to be shipped to New Mexico. Originally, we wanted to ship the Buick, but it wouldn't start. We shipped Bubbles instead at the last minute.
