Feb 6, 2014 - Mulege, California Baja Sur

We are having fun trying to be part of a big group. There are 24 rigs traveling with this Fantasy Tour. Most winters we spend weeks at a time camped out in the desert with no one in sight for miles and miles. To be able to manage this many people there has to be a lot of organization with travel meetings at 7:30 AM at which time the Wagon Master lines out the day events - how far we will travel, where we will spend the next night, lunch and potty stops, while the Tail Gunner goes from rig to rig checking tires with a big rubber mallet. We...

Feb 22, 2009 - Mulege

Mulege, BC Sur – Feb 20 – 22 Mulege is a really interesting town/city. As most places down here, it was accessible only by boat or plane until the 1970’s. Although there are quite a few souvenir shops, and the like, it seems to retain a small town friendliness that the bigger places don’t. Apparently John Wayne loved the place and was a frequent visitor. We went to Hotel Serenedid Saturday night for the weekly pig roast, and the owner (in his eighties), was a consul to Mexico years ago. He was said to be friends with “Duke”. Right next to...

Feb 21, 2009 - Santispac

Santispac really isn’t a community, it’s a beach front with long wide sand beaches just designed for goofing off. Who am I to debate that philosophy? We spent three nights here doing very little but drinking a beer, watching the sea birds, eating, drinking a glass of wine, fending off the beach vendors selling everything from pretty good looking silver to ready to eat tacos. Mostly said “No, gracias.” I think I saw at least three different kinds of gulls on our beach. If we sit as a group to have wine or beer and snacks, they stand quietly...

Feb 8, 2009 - Bahia Concepcion

Bahia Concepcion – Mulege – February 5, 2009 If you are prone to fits of envy, read no further. We are on the sea of Cortez, parked backed to within 25 feet of the Bay of the Conception. Janet just fed us a stir fry dinner of fresh caught shrimp (bought here on the beach), sweet peppers, carrots, asparagus, green onions, and just a touch of garlic. At eight o’clock, it is still 65 F, and the moon is full. The back window of the trailer is open, and the tide is coming in. The sound of the waves hitting the beach is as peaceful as anything I...

Nov 7, 2008 - Passing through Mulege Baja

Hello everyone. We’re doing fine and stayed overnight last night along the east coast of Baja in Mulege. It’s a little more than half way down to Cabo. All is going according to plan. This RV park has full service, 30 Amps, water (with pressure), and sewer. We get a chance to recharge the batteries and start out with clean tanks and full water. We scouted out a place yesterday that we could stay on the beach just down the road and dry camp for 70 pesos. Or about 60 cense per night. I has a nice looking restaurant and we may stop for lunch...

Down The Baja

Feb 9, 2008 - overnight in Mulege

John from PennyPinchers told us this would be a nice place to stay over. So we did. Some of you know that one thing I do often on my trips to warmer climates is to get ill as soon as possible. This trip keeps with tradition. On the day of our departure, Feb 3rd, I noticed that my foot was sore. Sure enough, later in the day, all the symptoms of gout had shown up. Next morning, it was difficult to walk and it hurt. I had taken precautions before the trip to ensure my immune system was fortified as much as possible, including shots for...

Feb 5, 2008 - Loreto to Mulege

So after two days in Loreto and a massage later we travled a short 85 miles to Ray's in Mulege. Upon arrival we were greeting with the standard Ray and Fabbi smiles and hugs. We were also VERY happy to lear the restaurant was OPEN! So guess what we did...ate there! And it was even better than before! What an awsome place! Only sad part is we can only stay one night!

Jan 11, 2008 - Guerrero Nego to Mulege

Days 5, 6, 7 & 8 Day 5 - We traveled today from Guerrero Negro to Mulege, about 170 miles. We are now on mountain time again and in Baja California Sur. The day started out like pea soup and lets just say...with the narrow road and oncoming big rigs we all did about 30 mph! We got through it, however, and finally got sunshine around lunch. Our arrival at Hacienda de la Habana or "Rays" was a welcome site as it was off the highway several miles and in the most beautiful valley. We were also treated to fresh squeezed OJ and something on our...

Mexico Bound!

Feb 22, 2007 - Buenadventura

Mileage 16,726 We're still on the Sea of Cortez at San Buenaventura on Bahía Concepción. Again we are nose to the beach, just a couple of feet from the blue, blue water. Just a nice, kick-back place. We'll decompress.... (From what, you ask...) We hiked with a group up into the Cañón Trinidad to see the pre-Columbian rock paintings. We had fun clambering over the rocks and wading through the streams, thigh deep, to a spectacular setting. The rock paintings themselves are multicolored Cochimí depictions of human figures and wildlife,...

Feb 8, 2007 - San Ignatio, Devils Grade, Santispac

Heading south we work our way through more desert and more mountain terrain...in case you haven't figured it out that is the Baja. The south appears to be prettier than what we saw in the north. We stop at 11 am in San Ignacio...an oasis of date palms and a lagoon in the middle of the desert. We wander the town, explore the shops and have something to eat. Then it's on to Santispac where we will be spending the night on a beach on the Sea of Cortez. To get there we have to decend down to sea level over Devils grade. A steeeeeep, cuving...

Baja or Bust 2007

Jan 30, 2007 - Mulegé

Mileage 15,917 We continue on down the coast to a beach just south of Mulegé (Mool-lay-HAY) on the Bhía Concepción. Heaven! We were going to stay two days and just couldn't leave so stayed three and wished for more. The town was a typical Mexican town with a active Mission (Misión Santa Rosalia de Mulegé, founded 1705 and completed 1766 - but, surprise, locked except during services) and a Museum (but, surprise, locked also even though it said "abierto"). Oh well... There was a beautiful palm tree lined river through the town that made the...

Mar 13, 2006 - Cabo to La Paz to Bahia Concepcioun

We left Cabo 2-15 heading for the capital of south Baja, La Paz. On the way we took a side trip to Todo Santos, home of Hotel California, the inspiration for the Eagles song. Had brunch as we relaxed in the court yard of the hotel, checked out and found that we could leave. Bought the mandatory overpriced tshirts and we were on our way again. We had a very pleasant park in La Paz owned by a plastic surgeon and right across the street from a purple hospital. It was quite a distance from the water but the town was located on the water with a...
