San Diego to Punta San Carlos Nov. 21-convoy?


Hey!

I am new to this site. My gf and I are headed south to Punta San Carlos for 5 days and was wondering if anyone else is headed in that direction on the 21st for a convoy?

thanks,

Bryan

About 150 mph straight-line. Like 200/hour. Maybe 1000 miles to San Carlos. You do the math.

It will, it's a big plane... Have a Baja Fog when you arrive to set the mood!

See the Solosports Resort (Punta San Carlos) on the 'Trail Of Missions' TV Special, Sunday Nov. 16, 12 noon Pacific, CBS Sports Network.

Yeah I wouldn't worry about joining a convoy. I'm sure there will already be several en route.

just pull in and pick a camp spot. It's off season but there's always someone there- you may or may not be hit up for camping fee. Don't forget your mountain bike !

it'll be okay. if you walk away from almost anything in Baja it is considered abandoned and will be grabbed up quick. the other campers and Solo guys won't touch it.

How many people fit in the plane? How does it work? If we stay somewhere in Baja for a week, when the plane drops us off and returns to the US after leaving us at our destination all the time traveled for the plane (back and forth) is accrued and when picking us up the same deal?




...work to camp and fish.... dream to be there....

The water is a bit cold but the surf and wind will be at your back. you will get waves and wind. Treat your gear just as you would in the states. There are some fun single tracks around there. It's just a day's drive south, take the bikes and boards and kill it.
