I am always amazed how small the world is and the further you travel on an off-road adventure the smaller it seems to get. Hula Betty’s family is from a little town called Drewsey in Easter Oregon. When I say little town, I mean the town consists of an all in one post office gas station mini-mart store which is across from the bar. That is it. The population is 609 men, 571 women and more live stock than you can shake a stick at. This town is so small
- both city limit signs are on the same post
- the phone book is only one page
- second street is in the next town over
- a night on the town only takes 10 minutes
- the other side of the tracks is a county away.
You get it… The town is small.
Well today in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico nearly 2,500 miles south of Eastern Oregon I met the nicest couple who were from there and knew Hula Betty’s family. They were a great couple traveling with a friends and exploring South Baja a little. We had a great chat, talking about our travels and telling them of our adventures.
These folks reminded me that we are all connected to each other and that what separates a good adventure from a great one is the people you and the friends you make along the way. This is definitely shaping up to be a great adventure.

Something like this deserves an email chock full of details to the appropriate sister-in-law.
I’m sure Hula Betty is already asking around 🙂
