Not the face, just the thought of you getting an idea in your head. lol




The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

Spoke with Mark not too long ago. He's researching another route into the canyon system from the North.
He's definitely hooked on this area of Baja!

Hey guys good to see you are still interested. I meant to finish off the report but never got around to it. I don't know why I said the rest of the trip would be boring in comparison, no way! I'll have to edit that out. DosMars and everyone else came down and we went up to Guadalupe and did a couple days of spearfishing, saw a sperm whale. Also I got a dog! Wow was it 2 years ago, time flies.

I'm still super excited about going back. I have a route in from the north heading from one wash to the next, I figure I'll end up near salsipuedes beach and meet DosMars there after he gets dropped off with a panga, then get picked up again in a few days. Just need to find the time, I'm hoping for Oct nov this year, we'll see how the jobs go.

The bike was definitely necessary. I don't know how you'd lug all that water without it. I just put an order in for a monowalker fatmate for a mountain trip I'm going to do up here in bc this summer where the bush is too thick for a bike but I don't want all the gear on my back. Might work for a desert trip as long as you don't need to bring 40 litres of water with you.

Very cool Kickstarter product there. Looks like something you should have come up with Mark!
Looks like we're heading down a week later in June if that works better for your schedule. We'll be renting a pang for one day. May head south to scout out the coastline a bit...

I have some great news, I'm heading back in in! I have a month off over December / January so I'll drive down in my 4runner, and the plan is to park it at Coco's Corner and then head in from the north and make my way out the south end. Lots to do to prepare! The new bike isn't even finished yet, still needs paint!!!

Sounds like a most excellent adventure!

I remember your trip story of a few years ago.
Will you post your old trip map and planned trip map?

The south end of the Asamblea Mountains. Either meet friends in Bahia Guadalupe or make my way out to the BoLA highway.

OK we're heading down tomorrow. Here is the map page. Should be fun but I will have to backtrack out the way I go in because I don't have time to do a full circle and it is too windy this time of year to packraft out, I won't bring it to save space. I'm going in from the north. It looks clear except there is one section that might have a Botica-like cliff. Doesn't look too bad though.

I noticed my Photobucket images don't work. You can download this Chrome workaround. Eventually I'll convert them all to Flickr.

Will you take the time to look for pinturas respuestas or cave paintings or other signs of early inhabitants? A fat bike would work good at Montevideo just the other side of the Bola highway

Hi Mark, what Photobucket did was stop those with free accounts from posting photos on forums (3rd party hosting). TW, myself, and others simply paid up to the first level that allowed photo sharing here... about $40-50, I recall.

www.postimg.org is a free site and can be easily pre-set for Nomad's 800-pixel max. width, before uploading.

Joerover, I'll keep an eye out. My friends mark and josh want to hike up with me for the first day then turn back.

Davidk, I recall photo bucket wanted $400 minimum which is ridiculous. Maybe they came out with a more reasonable option. I can stomach $40 a year until switch them over away from photobucket.

Mark had some engine problems north of the border and had to get them fixed and he's coming down now so we'll head down from San Felipe tomorrow, only lost a couple days out of it. Im in San Felipe now.

Mark, with this app, all your photos from Photobucket are again showing up. See the post today by Jaybo for the link to the app (if you use Chrome or Firefox): http://forums.bajanomad.com/viewthread.php?tid=88714

Hi Mark, me troye from San Felipe/Gonzaga - heard wonderful things about the canyon. I met the ultimate non-pervy guru of the Baja in a sweet man name poncho at the mostincredible spear fishingand shore casting location possible. I caught 11 species there, 70 nmiles remote. You and theother mark should getin touch for details. Nice to have met you.
