Kind of a downer, but some decent tunes and on point. The moral of the story? A van comes to the rescue.

Now that is a serious bummer!!! Thankfully, with over 50,000 miles driven in Mexico we haven't had an accident. This is also one of the reasons we go down the east coast of Baja rather then the paved west side. No traffic to speak of and what there is goes slow.
Moral of the story - cross your fingers and head south.
Living life without risk is not living.

45 days more or less and counting. I'm ready for some sun and surf. Trying to convince the wife that we need to leave on the 20th, not the 26th.

Re: Baja (two wonderful opprotunities in '09)

Just wanted to remind everyone we're still on for Baja for the latter half of Oct, 09. Don't get you dance cards too filled up as Baja is not something to miss.

Hopefully, the Pig Cold will have run its course by Oct.

Good thing you founded this forum, otherwise you'd have to be banned.

First night Gonzaga Bay? San Felipe to Gonzaga is one whole day trip for me and even then that's driving too fast and not enjoying the trip.
WOW!!! and my wife says Ive lost my dirt road mojo!
We get from Flagstaff, AZ to Gonzaga in one long day.
When the road was good and my truck and I was younger it was a 13 hour day,
Now its a 16 hour day.
Averaging 8mph on the 40 mile 5 miles south of Puertocitos to Gonzaga section.
I also drive the split roads instead for ~20% of that section.

Our first Baja trip in a smb is this fall, I sure hope it drives nicer than my old 93 f-250 which has averaged 3 Baja trips a year for the last 10 years and only fallen apart once.

Re: Baja (two wonderful opprotunities in '09)

Due to economic woes (fears might be a better term), etc., enough folks have dropped off that we're canceling the group trip in Oct. Hopefully, we'll be able to get it going in the Spring.

Scatter, we're still heading down for X-mas again. However, we are in negotiations whether we'll be flying or driving. Flights are damn cheap right now. I'd rather drive and play. Jen wants to fly. We'll see.
