Nice bump, David. I've enjoyed Choral Pepper's writings and wry humor.

David, just read Choral Pepper's account of El Barril. It answers several questions I had about that area. I flew in there several times to visit Dianna and her husband Hevs, who passed away about that time. Then she remarried and stayed there care taking for awhile. We were with Tom Carlin who was close friends of one of the owners (Hugh Kelly) of the nice house at the end of the runway, overlooking the Sea. Hugh Kelly and his Tahitian friends came there every year. It was a pleasure to stay with him and his Tahitian family. Kelly died but his daughter is still a friend or ours. This was all 15-20 years ago. Wonderful fishing around the area. Thanks for filling in some history with Coral's article. Always looking for more.

Baja and Old California history are great for adventure stories and they just pull at me to head down and see these places in person as well as research for more information on them. My mission book was so rewarding to produce in 2014-2016.

For the Choral Pepper fans, I have a newly discovered letter from 1964 from a Desert Magazine reader detailing a Jeep trip to San Ignacio that took a month and included a mule ride to the rock art sites, not long after Erle Stanley Gardner "discovered" them.
I will share this letter with you all, soon!

I've been sucked into learning about this history a lot lately.

This site is a treasure trove of information.
