Jan 13, 2009 - Gerrero Negro, Baja Sur

Woke up today to the sound of roosters crowing. Today we had to drive across the what the Mexicans call the Baja Central Desert. The Americans call it the “Baja gas gap”. It is 350 km drive across the desert with no gas stations or services of any kind. Actually it is not a separate desert but is part of the Sonoran Desert. The Sonora covers most of southern Arizona and the south east corner of California. From there it sweeps south into Mexico and then west to the coast in central Baja. The coastal area of California and northern Baja are...

Find Tom 2

Nov 23, 2008 - Guerrero Negro

Hi everyone. We are on the way back up the Baja. We have been out of email and phone for almost a week so I have not been able to update our location. All is going well and we have had an interesting time. We have not found anyplace we would come back and live. We just got into Guerrero Negro and may say a couple of days here. The restaurant has internet and it will give me a chance to catch up. More later.

Down The Baja

Sep 18, 2008 - Another day on the baja hwy

Jack & Rose Well we were off at 9:30 this morning, was just to be a short drive to Santa Rosalia-about 60 miles. Got there and the r.v. park we wanted was closed and it is advertised as open all year-oh well we continued on and landed up in Guerro Negro at about 3:30, the r.v. park we wanted was gone -just not there- so we went out to Marios place as we had stayed there on the way down and it was fine except for the rattle snake!!!!! Anne and I made dinner and I have been doing laundry because we are back to San Quin Tin tomorrow at the...

Sep 3, 2008 - Another day on the road

Chris & Anne Another day on the road today. Left the beach, (kicking and screaming…although the gang promises we will stop here again on the way back. Not much to report today, just narrow roads and hot. We crossed into Baja South today at which point we were ‘agriculturally sprayed”, chgd $2 for the privilege and carried on. Jack and Rose Left San Quin Tin this morning at 9:00,yes Chris got his way again this morning and we didn’t leave early. It was slow going for the first while as I decided not to take pills today!! Bad mistake!! As...

Feb 8, 2008 - overnight in Guerrero Negro

We stayed overnight in Gue Negro after a long day on the bikes. A couple days before we had heard of some riders from Alberta that had unloaded in Northern California and ridden down tot he Baja. We had met up with some American riders in Bahia de Los Angeles, (where Al Perret lives) and they told us of these Albertans. Sure enough, we met them in gue Negro. They were pretty tired and so were we. We said goodnight and left drinking cold ones for another time.

BC to BC

Feb 6, 2008 - Mulege to Guerro Negro

Our drive today was around 170 miles and we said adios to the Sea of Cortez as we headed out of El Rosario. We will stay tonight at the same RV park where we did the whale watch trip...and we will eat at the same great restaurant! Man...two nights in a row of eating GREAT! Well after this we dry camp for two nights and then hit the states so I guess it is our last celebration in Baja! While here we also went to the Mercado (market) to get the BEST fig cookies. We couldn't find them anywhere else. Tomorrow will be our long day of travel when...

Mexico Bound!

Jan 26, 2008 - Whale, Whale, Whale - Guerrero Negro's Glory

Up we went again, over the mountains and through the wilderness. On the narrow but well paved road from Bahia de Los Angeles, Carol's mirror had an encounter with a truck's extra-wide load. Though it didn't scare her (she is amazing), it scared the heck out of me. We both stopped when we found a turn out and then taped her mirror together - what was left that is. Our mirror was already broken when we left the US, where the mechanic suggested we not fix it before Mexico. Now we know why. The arrival at Guerrero Negro was uneventful after the...

Jan 10, 2008 - Catavina to Guerrero Negro

Day 3 & 4 - We arrived at Malarrimo RV park in Guerrero Negro, or the Black Warrior town, around 4pm. Right before town we had to travel through an agricultural check point (no fresh fruit or veggies) and our cars and campers were sprayed with a anti-weed mixture. Getting parked at the RV was a bit of a cluster (the travel trailers were called in last, about an hours wait and heat but we didn't dare open the windows because we were next to a cattle yard!) but we all finally made it in. After a much needed cervesa we had dinner at the...

Mexico Bound!

Nov 26, 2007 - Guerrero Negro, BCS

We crossed the U.S./Mexico border yesterday morning and have already crossed another border into the state of Baja California Sur and the town of Guerrero Negro. We joined up with our travel mates, Charlene and Hal Olson, at the El Pacifica RV Park in San Ysidro, CA. They already had obtained their visitors cards from the Mexican Immigration Office. Sue and I took the bus to the border on Saturday, stopped at immigration and the banco and then walked into downtown Tijuana for a nice lunch. We were hooked up and ready to go at 8:00 a.m on...

We left los Barrilles at 5 am this morning and making our way back home. we plan on spending a couple weeks driving the west coast down to Seattle and taking the ferrie accross to Victoria B.C. then home. It's hard to believe it is comming to an end after 4 months but we need to get back to work and reality as we usually know it. Tonight we are in Guerrero Negro in the baji and staying the night in a very unique fishing and tourist area. Our drive up the penninsula was outstanding. The scenery and landscape was some of the best we have...

Mexico For 3

Feb 24, 2007 - Guerrero Negro

Mileage 16,925 Guerrero Negro. I'm writing this a week later so I am able to be dispassionate about the events here. The city itself is a major salt producer, commercial and consumer, through a huge consortium between Mexico and Japan. And whales. This is one of the spots along the Mexican Pacific coast, (this one is the Laguna Ojo de Liebre (Lagoon of the Eye of the Jackrabbit)) to which the Grey Whales come to mate or give birth depending on which cycle the female is in. Gestation is 13 months for the Grey Whale. We took a rented ponga...

Feb 7, 2007 - Guerrero Negro - Gray Whale watching

A third day of mountain driving. This didn't seem as bad, or maybe Rich is getting used to it. We stopped around 10 AM for Brunch at Maurico's. We had Heuvos Ranchero and Ham and cheese Quesidillas and got to know some of our fellow travelers better. There are 48 people on the trip and you only get to know a few at a time when you sit next to them at a meal or park next to them in camp. We crossed the border from the north into Baja California Sur. This entailed another military checkpoint We've been through several, but they haven't...
