Good luck with your app! Hope you make some money.

BTW, in your signature, it's "duct" tape, not "duck" tape. ;)

ADCELAND, this is not personal and i wish you well. I am very much against this kind of APP. It takes the wonder and the novelty of finding something new away. Some of the places I most value I heard abbot over a campfire and planned and worked to go find. The planning and getting there were a major part of the enjoyment of the trip. One of my favorite spots was discovered when we missed the place we planned to go and found another one. One of my best memories is from 74 when we rounded the corner above San Ignacio and the river, blew me away, shocked me me to see standing water in the middle of the desert. This app will take the discovery away. Yes, images are not the same as being there. As more people see and travel there the development follows and the treasure we had becomes less.
I know that the world is getting smaller and there are no secrets anymore. I just wish that some of Baja was less published.

MMC...My thoughts exactly...Not so much from Baja being less published but from the seeming need to have a crutch instead of an adventure...SAD......

Thanks MMC for your post.....
I will try to reply with my poor English...... :)
My name is Adriano and my nik Adceland comes from my car that is a Land Cruiser....
Your post was my first deep doubt when I start the App project, as many Nomads love travel in "adventure" before in Africa Asia and east Europe now in Baja and in the new continent ...
I think that technology can't replace the emotions that you describe ...can be only a support like a GPS or Google Earth ...I hope that nobody will came in baja feeling safe with my App ... can be a
dramatic mistake .... all travel App can be a support to project the trip when you do not know nothing about the place and you aren't expert about adventure travel.... I live in La Paz from one year after four times in Baja , and many tourist do not know other beach over Balandra.... this is the sense...help to many tourist that rent a Wrangler and after tree days in Balandra want to discover other two or tree beach..... I think that with a little work on google eart and GPS they might find out anyway .... so the problem isn't the technology, my friend that start sahara desert trip in '60 years he thought the same things about Ozi expolorer and russian maps of Algeria and Lybia.... but whit my GPS my Google Eart and other I felt the same emotions to travel in ocean sand of Sahara....
But the doubt reamain .... I love baja for this things , secret spot and travel in "nomads way" and I think that to know where is one place is only the first step.... to arrive and how to arrive will be the trip project
and the expirience....

Thank you for helping me to explain my way of thinking ....

Sorry for my english and thank's to google translator for support...

Guidebooks and travel videos have been made about Baja California for over 100 years.

If you want surprise, don't buy a book or the app... simple. For others, a book, video, website, etc. opens up a land of adventure. No matter how detailed a book or app is, you cannot replace going there and you WILL see things and enjoy things that are not in the app or book.

I have enjoyed Baja books since I was 7 years old, and they enticed me from the time I began driving in Baja (1974) to take every dirt road I could, and see what is there. Before then... with my folks, (who were intrigued by the places Howard Gulick mapped and wrote about in the still awesome Lower California Guidebook) traveled the dirt roads of Baja to experience the first California!

Baja is for anyone who has the desire and ability, and it is not a private playground reserved for those who found it earlier.

An app, a book, any video... will NOT ruin Baja.

Personally, I think the grading or paving of roads are the only negative products to preserving the Baja we know, as it removes the challenge and appreciation for the ruggedness of the land. Naturally, that is only a dream since progress and the needs for Mexico outweigh our wishes for a primitive experience. There will always be bad roads we can take to a new adventure... I hope!

Best of luck Adriano!

The beginning of the year I decided not to argue with DK over the the posting of places in Baja. I disagree with his point of view. You can't spell adventure with a "A" anymore.
I have never looked at Baja as private or secret. Simply I hate to see it developed and access being denied to those that love it. The more people that come, the roads get better, the better the roads the more people. sooner or later the place becomes privatized. I also hate that nice spots are posted by well meaning folks that have no skin in the game and if the spot is closed it's no big deal to them, they most likely don't go there very often.
Somebody that lives and is building something in Baja is a different story. They will wake up everyday and live with what have or have not created.

Back in 2007, I consented to Woody's request that I do not name or GPS any of the "sisters" in my trip report, over 'there'. I also told him I wouldn't say anything appealing in my report, so I referred to the region as cold, gloomy, with 'ugly' fish camps... not a lie, but just not how I would describe anywhere in Baja. If you can't say anything nice, etc.

This was to appease the 'secret spot' surfers.

It didn't matter, as the reply indicates. I could have said glorious things about that cool dirt road, isolated beached, wonderful local people... and I would not get any worse treatment than I got since by doing the favor!

As Lincoln said, you can't please all the people...

The enemy to your spots getting 'crowded' are good roads, not apps, maps or guidebooks (some of which have detailed that coast for over 50 years).

Is the area worse with you there in the opinion of the surfers who went there before you first did? Is that fair? At what point are people not worthy of going to a beach you like. At what point does it become 'ruined'?

I have openly shared my favorite beach on Baja forums for over 15 years... it is still as beautiful and uncrowded now as it was 35 years ago. Why? Not because of books or maps or Internet posts... because of bad roads... Bad roads keep it nice. The same is true about the Seven Sisters... The road to much of it is 2WD friendly... Good roads bring ALL kinds of people (not guides, apps, posts on Nomad).

Be angry at the government of Mexico, not app builders or travel writers. Bad roads act as a barrier to rif raf. Bad roads bring GOOD people, like you!

Have a nice summer!
