Ateo get a spot and put DK on the email list. If you get into trouble send a help signal and as soon as DK lets me know I'll come running. You do know of the rock paintings near the north end of the San Borja road don't you, Montevideo I think they are called.

3) San Fernando (not much left, but the pertoglyphs down the arroyo are cool.)
4) The two missions at El Rosario
5) Santo Domingo (just 5 miles east of Hwy. 1)
6) San Vicente (if the gate is open)
7) Santa Gertrudis... lucky if the door is unlocked.


Santa Gertrudis is really cool and is a must see! I was blown away with all the relics and the professionally done literature for sale/donation. But it is located in Baja Sur.

You're awesome Tom. I would do the same for you. I have a SPOT and usually put a few friends on it. I'll add DK. One of the reasons I was thinking Borja was for those paintings. I hear the family out there will take you to them?




Headed South.

Thanks Bajaboy. I was just about to pull out my missions book to track down Gertrudis until you mentioned it was in Sur. I'll keep this filed in my mind for the future. Gracias amigo.

If you're headed that way and I'm at our place, I'll join you. We went out that way last summer but were stopped just short of the mission due to a crazy washout shown in the first picture here: http://bajaboyadventures.blogspot.com/2015/06/playa-san-rafa... That entire area is so beautiful!

I was looking at my AAA map, and El Arco and the Gertrudis mission are just over the border, in BC north.

As far as I know, there is no wall on the border yet!




If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

Confirmed, Santa Gertrudis is in BAJA Norte... best access without going into Sur is south of L.A. Bay via Bahia San Rafael.

Does anyone else find it amusing how DKs special places require hushed conversation but anyone else asking for the same from him gets a big middle finger along with verbal diarrhea?

Yes. I was there in 2001 with Neal and Marian Johns, my son, and Amo Pescar. Neal asked me to not post the GPS, only share by email or u2u.

Dave, I'd like to see this special place in the next revision of your book. That would really be the icing on the cake!

What do you do when somebody takes you to a place that you have already been and asks you not to post it?

Yes, and if ask me not to publish their locations I will honor that request as I always have with anyone who shows me a new place.

Woody, what we have here is a failure to communicate.
MMc, if I had already been there then I wouldn't be taken to it, I would be returning.

Both of you: I have met hundreds of Nomads and there is no resaon for me to think I am so special that I need to keep any place secret from any Nomad, most I can consider as amigos. It is the people who don't come to Nomad you should worry about.


There are lots of great people who do not frequent NOMADS. Where the hell did you ever get that?

The point is that most of my maps and trip reports are here on Baja Nomad, and not "all over the Internet" and I know lots of Baja Nomads and nearly all are great people and no reason to not share a camping location with them. I can't speak for people I do not know or have been able to read posts from. Obviously, Woody and MMc thinks there must be some terrible folks that they fear will come and ruin some remote beach that they go to a few days out of the year? While these remote beaches have been in books and maps for over 60 years, they somehow think my posts here on Nomad will do some harm that 60 years of publications have not??? I feel so honored!!

Anyway, this thread is a classified ad for my history book... any questions about what is in the book?
