Multi-day kayak tripping - wanna team up?


I've been loosely planning a kayak trip in Baja, CA - two water segments: [the old] camp Gecko to Bahia Animas, and the inside east coast of Bahia Conception peninsula to the point - maybe around it too depending on what it looks like.

No or little risk taking - slow and easy - multiple stops for exploring, hiking, snorkling, fishing.

Was thinking right after Christmas for a couple weeks. Camping en route. Maybe a couple days at Lopez Mateos kayaking around there, then head home.

If you're interested, u2u me.

Really? 1,600 views and nobody wants to go kayaking with me? How 'bout a backpack trip from Rcho. Santa Inez to Papa Fernandez at Gonzaga Bay (more or less)? I've got a couple extra backpacks.

I was considering late December, early January. Nights are cold, but days are just right - you're not guzzling water all the time in the heat of the day, and sweating and dehydrating.

Yeah, I think the weather is keeping people away, especially the chance of winds in both locations. That east side of Concepcion is not very protected in NW winds, either, is it?

Good locations; maybe just not the right time of year. Late October, early November would be perfect.

I've got 3 mules and would be interested the end of Dec into January.
Mike's already checked this route out.
I just haven't had the time.

I definitely would do this - end of Dec. - January. With a shorter trip (relative to Mike's "Journey"), maybe we can carry a much lighter backpack, and put most of the food and heavier gear on the mulas (more comfortable days with a lighter pack). see U2U

Where is Baja Bucko? Is there any section of the Camino Real she has still not ridden on?

Mike, where is the 'Rancho Nuevo' you are starting at (I know Rancho Viejo in the area, the original site of San Javier mission)?

Rancho Viejo is just past Rancho Nuevo on the other side of the road. Tista has Rancho Viejo and Bule has Rancho Nuevo. Neighbors.

LOL... that's funny... but neat to name one Old Ranch and the newer one next door, New Ranch! Thanks Mula, I don't have a map that shows it and didn't see (or remember today) a sign for it when we drove by in 2009.
