Anyone on here remember SkiBaja aka JR Baja?


He was the all time greatest poster on Baja Nomads.

As a nomad, I would never put one Nomad above another as all time greatest poster. JR was a nice person equal to others.

Typical sentiment of parents who raised millennials and gave them all those participation trophies.

Competition breeds success, plus JR wasn't nice, and I think he died before you even joined the board.

Yes, I remember him well. He was a prolific poster and very hard on folks in general. I understood that in person he was just great!!! and died way too early.

JR and I were friends... He admitted to me it was all in good fun to get a rise out of the drama queens here.
He enjoyed collecting Baja books and had me come over to his and Carol's place south of Rosarito (oh, it was a gated 'gringo' compound of the kind he poo pooed publically here).
Yes, we battled a bit on Nomad for show, but in person, we had a nice party at his place (where we all met Antonio 'Baja Cactus' and family in 2004), and I delivered clothes and mosquito spray for him to distribute to areas in need.

Someone took a photo of JR and I at his place, here eating and drinking...



JR began using bamboo and promoted it as construction material...



A month later was the Baja Cactus Cultural Fiesta in Tijuana...

The Private screening of 'Bajo California' in CECUT's theatre. Mexico Ted has a front row seat and J.R. and Herb are right behind. Hear Ted on Baja Talk Radio!

The photo is blurred that I took, but that is JR having a good laugh with amigo Herb (who also is no longer with us).

La Barca, just north of where the Titanic was filmed. JR worked on the set and had several props for yard decoration.

JR didn't like you. He might have humored you in person.

Willardguy, good catch. Not many of those posters are still around anymore. Thanks, for the walk down memory lane.
