Apr 2, 2009 - Guererro Negro, BCS

Thursday 4/2 – After coffee and breakfast burritos we headed for Guerrero Negro (Baja California Sur). Stayed at the Hotel Ballena – friendly, clean and inexpensive. Tanka made some friends there, too. After checking into hotel, we drove out to the salt mining area. We stopped at guard station on the way back and the guard gave us a huge salt crystal (which we've since given away - hoping to be able to stop there on way back for another one). We then drove out to the beaches where the whale watching tours head out from and stopped by...

Mar 4, 2009 - Back in Guerrero Negro

Today we drove west across the peninsula to the Pacific coast. Both Laura and I have been sick with colds so we are going to sit here for a couple of days until we are feeling better. After a week of temperatures in the mid 30s, it was a cool 24 degrees today. Very nice.

Feb 23, 2009 - Whale Watching

After the tequila antics we headed back to the campsite, had dinner and went back into town for ice cream. Shannon was still in a party mood so we stopped at "The Giggling Marlin" which was hopping. We had a great time dancing (no more tequila, however) and people-watching. We were sad to leave Cabo San Lucas but decided we'd try to do some whale watching at Guerrero Negro which is on the west coast about halfway up the Baja. Apparently from what people had told us, that was a great place to see whales. The first day we drove about 8 hours...

Feb 8, 2009 - Guerrero Negro

Mario’s – Guerrero Negro – February 3, 2008 We are back on the ocean front today at “Black Warrior”, where we will go whale watching tomorrow. Another group in the campground went today, and said they had a great time. The grey whales come so close to the boats they could pet them!! Anyway, a before breakfast start again, and then a stop a couple of hours down the road we stopped for brunch at a little restaurant. A great breakfast, even for a non-breakfast eater. Scrambled eggs with sausages added, and some kind of spice that was good...

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...

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.

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.

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...

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...
