Please do not take offense to this, but think about your initial actions; if I was camped on the beach, soothed by the lullaby of waves lapping on the shoreline at 11:00 pm and trying to assuage my nerves from hectic life to Baja dreams and somebody drove by me and the surf on their (of course MUFFLERED) quad at that time of night I might wanna steal the damned thing, drive it into the surf as far out as it would go at low tide and swim back to shore....

I'm not trying to condescend on you, or justify the perp's deeds by robbing you at gunpoint... but too often us Gringos tend to think "Aw, it's Mexico... there are NO rules !". But nay-nay..... there's contemplation and retrospect. Being out by yourself at that hour (Baja Midnight is usually between 7 and 8 pm when people go to bed) and making a target of yourself shows a lack of judgment, especially an area now known for economic downfall and increased crime.

On that note, if stupidity was a crime we'd all spend at least one night in jail, and I'd be in for Life with no possibility of parole. I trusted in a beach camp that I thought would protect me and had my outboard motor stolen almost 10 years ago, and learned valuable lessons from it.

Just sayin', amigo. Again, no harm intended.


To you: pipe down, just sayin'

you would be pretty stupid to use bear spray in response to a gun. better to just give up your wallet and quad, and live for another day

Franco, you'll get used to the goathead. You gave him exactly the reaction he gets off on, prolly made his whole day. Even if you ignore him he won't go away, but at least you're not giving him his jollies.

Welcome to Nomads, BTW..... even if it was the hard way. Also, air guns are legal in Mexico. However, don't bring a knife to a gunfight.

If you follow the money, the reward probably goes from the victim to a cut for the POlice, to a cut for the perps, if no one was arrested. Cops contact perps (or vice versa) and set up a place to leave the ATV. Cops retrieve, Cops get money, perps get money. Gringo gets ATV back. It's win-win-win, right?

Not that far off from the drug cartel scenario, really.

What a country!!!

Good Point!An example:

Bringing a Knife to a Gunfight: Here’s a little lesson from township top cop Mike Chitwood: Never take a knife to a gunfight. That’ the unfortunate lesson learned the hard way Saturday morning when a man who confronted another man with another knife wound up on the short end of the fight when his victim pulled out a gun. After repeatedly warning his attacker, the man shot him in the leg, police said. Upper Darby [PA[ police continue to investigate what they are calling a self-defense shooting in the Drexel Hill section of the township. The man shot, a 60-year-old Morton resident, sustained a bullet wound to the knee, shortly after 11 a.m. Sunday June 11, according to police Superintendent Michael Chitwood... According to Chitwood, the shooter, a 24-year-old Bridgeport resident was walking on Bridge Street near James Street, from the 7-Eleven store on Baltimore Pike, with another man, 30, of Drexel Hill, when they were approached by two men who pulled up in a car. “The two men, a father and son got out of the car and walk up to the shooter with a knife asking ‘who’s Kyle’ and the shooter says, ‘you need to know I got a gun,’” Chitwood said. “He kept saying, ‘I got a gun, I got a gun, I got a gun.’ He has a concealed weapon permit for a 9 mm. The shooter pulls the gun out and hangs it at his side. Then the knife-wielding man comes toward him and he shoots him in the knee. He told us he purposely shot him in the leg. He warned him numerous times when he came at him before he fired.” According to Chitwood, police recovered the 9-mm handgun and a knife that looked like a gun at the scene...

So? As usual you don't get it. Couldn't be a better example of a knife vs gun.

Off subject, but If it had been a cop in the same situation he wouldn't have gone for the knee but instead gone "center mass" and emptied his 15 round clip.

Hanging out in ATV on a secluded beach (which David's photo nicely illustrated), and doing this at 11 pm... Well, this is what gringos do. The whole SF stretch has become gringolandia to the point that they forgot where they are. Just stating the obvious.

Belongs in the "General" rather than in "Trip Reports", IMO.
