Hurrah! Now let's see if it shows up in Purisma and/or San Isidro. I want to ride from Mulege to San Javier via the over the hill route and it would be great to be able to gas up in Purisma.

I am always encouraged when an elected official does the right thing even when it happens just before an election. There is all sorts of pot hole patching going on in Mulege this week.

Can anyone confirm that gas is available in San Juanico? I searched the Talk Baja FaceBook page but couldn't find anything. I don't have a FaceBook account so maybe that's why.

Also curious about the availability of gas in Cataviña.

Thanks very much.

Sadly, Facebook is of no use to read posts that are not new or refreshed continually. I did my best to try and figure a solution to help travelers on Talk Baja find past postings. I understand the need for Baja travelers to read past trip reports. Here, on Baja Nomad remains that resource. Gasoline in any large community can be found, usually by asking if it isn't advertised.

Yes, gas is sold at Cataviña as well as Punta Prieta at the market around Km. 12.5+ on the right.

Absolute rubbish. Just like this forum, there is a search function in facebook where one can search a page for any subject no matter how old it is. I will post the question and search the "old" posts for an answer. Hopefully one of the 30,690 members of Talk Baja will have an answer.

I did use the search function on the Talk Baja FaceBook page and wasn't able to find anything. Again, that could be because I do not have a FaceBook account.

If anyone who has been to San Juanico or Cataviña recently can advise about that, I'd appreciate it very much.

Thanks very much in advance.

Go to talk Baja. I asked the question and got an immediate answer from someone who was just there.

PS...I did a search for San Juanico and got pages of results.

My moto group got caught in SJ the very day this happened. No forum nor Facebook page helped us out. North of Zaragoza simply sucked.

Thank you, Tim, for answering the question.

Thank you, Chuckie for stating the averages here. Most are normal, kind folks who seek more Baja and more friendships or like to share their Baja experiences and have conversations.

Then you have the gang of haters who use the Internet to perpetuate the bullying they did in school to feel better about their own miserable life. The more people they make feel bad, the better they feel.

Their actions prevent more good, kind people, from sharing here who want no part in such hostility.

Moons tooth you need a Facebook account then you need to "like" the TalkBaja page in order to participate/search. Hope it works for you.
