Alright folks, we're on it. The WaW Baja 2018 Expedition now has a mission.

We will locate and escort one lost Teddy Bear to the nearest USPS outpost north of the border for safe passage back home.


It sounds like you will be picking up the bear on your way south, so he might as well ride up front with you and enjoy the ride!

I hope you will work him into some of your photo shoots (which are always outstanding) because what's wrong with sharing a little Teddy love?




If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

"Could do better if he tried!" Report card comments from most of my grade school teachers. Sadly, still true!

I used to shoot rabbits and squirrels there before the houses went up. Floated Stine canal in inner tubes in the summer. Valley Plaza was just a dream. How'd we live thru those days?

We had a near miss as ivan wasn't there when I was. Trying again on the way north. Operation still in progress.

We made it to San Felipe for the pickup, but chit's gone sideways. I found Ivan bound and gagged behind the desk with no sign of the bear or the drugs. It's starting to look like Teddy may have double-crossed us and gone on the lamb with the package. Someones gonna have to pay up. My employer will not be happy about this.

It isn't hard to tell if the teddy bear has drugs in it. As the Chinese say "if the iron is hot don't pick it up, if it is cold pick it up".

I'm not so sure about that, but instead of argueing about it, how about a real world test of your postulate!
so I'll show up in Bakersfield with 10 Teddy Bears, you can hold em, feel em, look at em, and tell me which ones have 20 grams of "fentenyl" wrapped in plastic inside? obviously it would be sand or sugar -
Just for reference here, the info I found says that 20 grams ofpure fentenyl after cutting the street value would be about 1/4 of a million if im doing my math right!
so for every one you get right, I'll pay you 100 bucks - easy money for you! of course if you get it wrong, you owe me 100 buck per wrong guess!
It would be fun, we could make it like a game show - broadcast it to interested Baja Nomad participants, and you could show everyone how dumb I am!
what do you say?

I am dead serious about this, just want to make sure you aren't going to back out or disapear before i go blow a couple of hundred on teddy bears!
BTW if by some miracle I do win a couple of hundred from you , after the cost of the bears, everything gets donated to Blancas scholarship charity!


Well I stayed about an hour at the park and no one showed up with any teddy bears. Does that make me the winner? If so caj13 you can just pay my winnings to Blanca and help the kids.
