Graham Mackintosh Slide Show


I'll be giving a slide presentation/book signing at El Caballo Blanco bookstore in Loreto, on Paseo Hidalgo, two blocks from Malecon -- Friday March 16, at 4PM. Hope to see some of you there.

I'll also try to arrange a few other slide shows along the way.
Will post here if I can.

Thanks David. I've always tried to make the shows as informative and entertaining as possible. Spending months roughing it in Baja usually provides plenty of tales and photo ops to talk about. And cute animal buddies really helps. Pics on my website give a preview.

Not sure if Mike Younghusband will be there... I hope so, so we can compare notes on traveling with our blanco Baja burros.

The Barstow Museum Desert Explorers group had Graham TWICE as the featured speaker at our annual meetings. If you have not had the pleasure, go, go, go.

When I get another lecture in socal I'll definitely post it on my website.

Thanks for the positive mention Neil... I really enjoyed addressing the Desert Explorers. Fond memories.

Hope to see you there Bajablanca.

Not sure about the video tape idea. I'll have to wipe off the dust and sweat and go through makeup and hair dressing. :lol:

Looks like I'll also be speaking at the LA Bay museum March 22 and possibly in the Mulege/ Bahia Concepcion area before March 16. To be confirmed.

Sounds like a great idea... L.A. Bay!

You climbed to the top of Mike's Mountain, right (Into a Desert Place)?

March 22 -- I'll definitely be giving a slide show in LA Bay at the museum.

As David relates, and as mentioned in Into a Desert Place, I can blame the wonderful views of the bay from on high for turning me on to Baja adventure. Meeting Mike and my hikes up Mike's Mountain sure opened my eyes to what was stretched out before me.

Friends are looking for a venue or venues in Bahia Concepcion for March 14/15. And hopefully I'll be giving a presentation in Mulege, maybe at the Jungle after my March 16 show in Loreto?

Any ideas/contacts for a location in San Ignacio or Santa Rosalia? - two places central to my story - I'll be passing through on my way down and heading back north.

San Ignacio ideas: Casa Leree or Ignacio Springs or Ricardo's Rice and Beans?

My presentation at the LA Bay museum will be at 5 PM on Thursday, March 22.

Thanks David for the ideas. Always happy to give a slide show to groups large or small as I'm traveling around with my projector.

Graham is in Catavina for a few more days but will definitely have a program at La Jungla in Mulege on the 13th at 7 p.m. He also will be at Bahia Concepcion next to Punta Arena at a private residence on the 15th. Don't know a time yet..

Beacuse it is a beautiful view? Why the sad face?

I wanted to climb Mike's Mountain back in 2002 with some of the Camp Gecko-ites... Sorry it never happened... Mike spent years working at his cave home up there... I hear it is something else! Rain collectors, etc.
