If anyone would like a copy of my book, I will have a few at 1/3 off the list price ($20 cash). I will sign your copy as well. Looking forward to meeting new Nomads. The event looks to be HUGE... and it is free!
I will be at the Benchmark Maps table with Luis of Benchmark maps.

Edie, The Mission Walker is another author you should meet. Her story is amazing.

We all love to hear Graham Mackintosh tell us about his adventures.

Lot's of food... AB Off the Grid catering is going to be there. He is the one who feeds Cameron's Trail of Missions guests when they are not near any restaurants!

See you mañana, Shelter Island, Humphrey's, FREE!

The show was a huge success... tons of people were enjoying the event and hearing guest speakers, Edie 'The Mission Walker' and our very own Graham Mackintosh.

It was great to meet so many of you who came up to the Benchmark Maps/ Baja California Land of Missions table!

Some pictures from my phone today:


Edie The Mission Walker show.




This is where I was with Luis, the salesman from Benchmark. He flew in from Seattle and sold many Baja atlas books and the Baja wall map.

Seeing how well this was received, you will see more events coming from Baja Bound Insurance!

Remember the VW van fire near Comondú in 2020?

Boy, not 5 minutes from where I used to live! Sure wish we could have been there. If there is another expo, I would like advance notice so we can have a hotel booth for our place! My Mom would run it in a heartbeat LOL

Congratulations on your successful event!
