We decided to camp for 2 nights and camp at local desert Hot Springs in the Anza Borrego area.
I decided to ride the old Gold Wing since it had been "down" for a few months with a broken ignition system. The "Dyna" Ignition sensors were replaced a few weeks ago.
We stopped for a quick break at a rest area....a truck driver had the road blocked as he high centered his trailer.
We stuck to back roads whenever possible but had to ride 30 miles of Interstate as there was no alternative. Followed the Mexican Border into California.
A pull off spot along the road....not sure what this "over view" area was.
The Marine Corp had a few choppers in the area. they were busy all night. In the middle of the night, I heard what sounded like a freight train approaching.....all of a sudden a huge blast of wind hit, then subsided as it traveled away. This happened numerous times in the night. My partner's open campsite was blown all over and he ended up moving a few feet for more of a wind break.
We altered our route due to inclement weather ahead, I led us on a route which I had never ridden.
The untraveled route ended up being a great twisty road leading to Borrego Springs Ca.
