Mark your Calendars for July 14: PowerPoint (slide) show/ lecture: Baja California Land of Missions


Discover Baja Travel Club will be hosting my PowerPoint lecture: Baja California Land of Missions July 14, 2016 (Thursday) at 7 pm in San Diego at Liberty Station.

From Discover Baja:
We'll charge $3 for DB members and $5 for nonmembers. People will need to RSVP to DB by calling 619-275-4225 or emailing ask@discoverbaja.com. Our max capacity is 60 people

Our previous lecture in 2014 was for the last book (The Old Missions of Baja & Alta California) and was with that book's co-author, Max Kurillo. It was a full house, so RSVP as soon as possible.

I have a totally different show for you this time, all Baja, and includes several photos not found in the book as it will be about more than just missions, and include a look at travel in Baja before automobiles!

Books will be for sale at the event or bring your copy to be signed. I hope to have plenty of opportunity for questions as well.

One question I have always wondered about is why were some made with rock and others made with adobe. I assume after San Borja it was just easier to build with or maybe there was no rock at many places. Do any of the records or writings say why?

Great question!

I think every mission began as a shack made of sticks, tules, whatever was available. The next phase was adobe bricks... pretty much every mission went through that phase. A few advanced to cut stone walls and solid roofs, such as San Javier, Comondϊ, Mulegι, San Luis Gonzaga, San Ignacio...
The San Borja adobe complex ruin is right behind the newer stone church.

No crime to make a few pesos from your seminar. With your lifetime of knowledge and enthusiasm on the subject, I would hope that you would be rewarded.

Best of luck David.

Thank you. That reply was to some unhappy Nomad, whose post is now gone, so is the reply, now.
Not Cameron in the photo, but he purchased 50 of my new books to provide to his guests on the next Trail of Missions TV tour. Cameron Steele was a blast to off road with in 2014 when he flew me down by helicopter to lecture at a couple missions.
I got about a minute or two of TV exposure on CBS Sports, lol!
