Better make sure you have a good set of tires also, just got back from
G/N and the road is so full of pot holes after the rain! A lot more and deeper than in November When we were down. Make sure you have
a good spare also, you may need it!

Three weeks is a good amount of time for a recon trip. Our first foray into Baja was that long - packed the Jeep full of camping crap and went exploring. You can see a lot and still have a few days for beach-lounging, fossil-hunting, fishing, whathaveyou.

One suggestion - don't let an itinerary of check-boxes get in the way of an experience. Some of our best memories from Baja were/are products of side trips taken on a whim.

I don't hear anyone mentioning Easter Week down here (Semana Santa). The weeks before and after Easter are pretty much a zoo. Beaches full and some significant alcohol problems.

The bomberos here in Mulege do their annual big business cleaning up the smashes on the highway this time of year.

Just my personal take but here's not much worth seeing or experiencing south of Agua Verde except flat desert and condo salesmen.

Well, I take part of that back. Along Rt. 1 down south of LaPaz there are some sweet little towns but going one step south of Santiago is brain dead.

The dominant life form down there is redimix trucks.

Easter week might be a lot of drunk partiers on just about every beach
