Consider skipping Cabo and san Felipe, there are much better places to visit in Baja, Cabo and san Felipe are just yucky places. Add Catavina, la Paz, and san Ignacio and a day to see whales,

Worked with former marine and army personnel in high stress jobs. No b-tching just the get it done attitude.

That was work.

This is a vacation though.

Good Luck with managing expectations.

A very helpful group of people reaching out to assist your convoy from Baja Nomad.

I toured people through Europe(The Dam,Deutsche Land, Swiss, Istria, Croatia, Italy and France several times, in ONE large Sedan or a Sports Coupe dependent upon the couple or two singles.

Best mode of travel was on the fly with no set destinations.

Crossed paths with British travelers on a tour bus through Morocco in 95 just outside of Fez.

All herded on a bus for the past four days and all hell was breaking out with another 10 days together in the near future.

Great Expectations!

At least you will have the solitude of your vehicle during the drive.

Bone up on your Spanish!

Cheers!

Ten Vehicle caravan


Driving a caravan of Ten vehicles to Baha is utterly stupid.

Every aspect of your trip, from border crossing, to traffic safety, to restaurant, to finding fuel, will be compromised.

Why not just go to Moab where such groups are the norm ?

Chris,
Saturday 4,
Suggest you camp at one of the beaches south of Mulege on Bay of Conception and not stay in Santa Rosalia. There are beach bars/food easy to get.

Because after you drive by it on the way south vs the "views" at Santa Rosalia, guarantee your party will want to stop there on the way north!

Between Santa Rosalia and Mulegé...


There are a couple campgrounds just south of Santa Rosalia at San Lucas Cove (Km. 181.5 & 178). Then there are camping beaches at and near Punta Chivato, a few more miles south, before Mulegé (Km. 155.5 + 13 miles). Finally, Santa Ines is a beautiful sand beach (Km. 150 + 3 miles).

Aldervale


I expected some negative comments. Yours included. I have been to Moab many times. I have also driven 8K miles to Deadhorse and back. This is an overland trip with a very competent group.

Every-time my group goes out we almost always encounter someone who is broke down and was not prepared, we then proceed to help them with our existing supplies/tools/parts and get them on their way.

To be honest, what I was not prepared for on this forum is the level of vitriol of some of the members. From post calling me stupid to other post telling me not to come to Baja. What is it about a forum that seems to bring out the worst in people?

If you have nothing positive to contribute to my route planning then STFU.
This applies to MTgoat666 as well.

A caravan of 10 should be safe. I drove in, saw the rancho next to the beach that had a large camping area then drove south 1/2 mile to a camping spot. Not a soul there. Crime can be anywhere so you need to decide if you let fear keep you from enjoying Baja. I camped alone dozens of times, all over Baja this year... in the boonies or unpopulated beaches and had 0 issues with banditos or bad cops.

Chris, I emailed you 5 or 6 days ago using the address you sent on a private message. Did you get it? Suppose it might have gone to spam or.....lost in space, still.

skip san felipe, it is pretty dumpy place, poor quality beaches, not worth the time.

you mention going to el rosario for boojum trees. odd choice. scratch that and go to catavina area for boojums and boulders.

i would skip cabo, and spend time elsewhere.

given length of your trip, I would pick 3 or 4 destinations, and then let the rest of the schedule be what it becomes (i.e. just a couple reservations around holidays, rest by seat of the pants)


Probably the best advice in this thread.

For sure skip San Felipe and Cabo. Neither are good. La Paz is way better than Cabo. Get out on the water in La Paz.

You definitely don't want to try to plan stuff out to the nth degree. One little thing will throw the whole plan off. And there's a 95% chance that happens. Much better to have a general idea what you want to do and allow for stuff to come up.

Chris Haynes proved to be a whiny wanker. I now fully encourage him and his frat boys to stay in san Felipe and Cabo and not ruin the rest of baja for us.
