Hey Dave, Where is the fishing report?

Do you think it is worth going that way if I have to go back to the 5/405 up the coast to get home?

Mike,

I have gone that way the last few trips.. Faster easier.. I would recommend it. Pain in the burro getting through Mexicali until you do it once

You in town? Let's get a beer..

This thread has the latest reports, I believe. Including my observations from 2 months ago (ie. 22 unpaved miles remain... easy for most vehicles... semi tractor/trucks use it as a major shortcut between Mexicali and Baja Sur.

Still a bit bouncy for motorhome and travel trailers if you have unsecured dishes in cabinets!
