Yes, with the taller tires the speedometer is spot on. I guess they make the speedometer read slightly fast to help you not get a ticket!
Stock tires have a fast speedometer but accurate odometer. 1" taller tires have an accurate speedometer but a slow odometer.

You have put a lot of work into this road guide. My only critique would be to use your original photos rather than the "color enhanced" versions. Baja is a beautiful place just as it is. No need to portray a technicolor version.



Experience enables you to recognize a mistake every time you repeat it.

Thanks... my camera does not show the colors well on Nomad, at least to me... until I enhance them. Not all of the ones above have been. The last two, on the sand dune, for example: The first one is regular and the second enhanced. The sky looks truer to me in the second one?

In the guide, it won't be these Photobucket enhanced ones, but a photo sharpening tool that is in Word. However, unless it is an online only guide, when printed the photos are in black & white.

Thanks for your input!

The fat tire bicycle couple from Canada that I met at Mission San Luis Gonzaga have completed their Baja journey and are taking the ferry to Mazatlan. Here is a YouTube video clip they produced from La Paz:

Great trip, DK!!

I did this same trip about 30+ years ago. I would not mind doing it again just to see what is changed.

Thanks for the great photos!!!

I just edited the first page by adding a revised road log from San Ignacio to San Juanico. I will work on the maps to change any of the notes I may have had that need it.

Because this route is very popular and often in question, I added the new road log to the Road Conditions forum, as well.

It's a tough job, but somebody's got to do it, right? ;)

OK, maps have been edited and a map from San Juanico south to Las Barrancas with the GPS track over the new highway route included.

Wowsers, I am so lucky! If I waited to September for this research trip, I would have not been able to get to all the places I did!

Welcome to Nomad, I am so happy you enjoy my work... Almost hate to call it work! I am in the process of writing the road guide now. It always helps to post here when I get home to help organize the photos and visualize how it may look or be changed to look better.

I hope you look at TRIPS 1-5 also posted in 2017, if you are interested in those areas, too. Obviously, when this is all in guidebook format it will be far easier to use!

Thank you for taking time to comment! I look forward to your trip reports here, too!
