Great maps. I love mileage notes along the dirt roads. Very helpful.

Great job David. These maps are much appreciated. Many possibilities in later organizing in the book.

Me too, and I think that helped the AAA maps popularity a lot.
Adding mileages is a bit of work, but worth it. Give me some time, as I have a full plate. I come onto Nomad for a break during the day.

Lancair, thanks for the kind words... I am making a version of the road guide with the maps. They are "mini-guides", so instead of all of Baja... it will be sectional, such as Mexicali to Laguna Chapala (with side trips). People can just get or download the areas of interest.

I'd love to see another little guide like "Backroad Baja." The landmarks are out of date now, but those logs are really helpful.

I am making about 6 mini-guides (3 for Norte and 3 for Sur) in addition to the full guide.

It is a matter of both having maps with the guide as well as offering something specific to your travels.

The full guide was maxed-out with the hundreds of photos it has, to go with the road logs. Maps will have to be a separate file. This may be just an issue for me as a non-computer tech person?

The mini-guides can have the maps in the same file.
Baja Norte has :
1) Tijuana to San Quintin (+ Hwy. 3 and San Pedro Martir road logs).
2) Mexicali to Laguna Chapala (+ Hwy. 2; Across Baja via Valle de Trinidad; to Valle Chico/Matomí/Sulfur Mine).
3) San Quintin to Guerrero Negro (+ 'Distant Pacific' Coast Road; to L.A. Bay and Punta San Francisquito).

Baja Sur will have (this is in the works and may change):
4) Guerrero Negro to San Ignacio (+ to El Arco and El Barril; Vizcaino to Tortugas area; to Abreojos and on to Asuncion; San Ignacio to San Juanico, and on to Insurgentes).
5) San Ignacio to Insurgentes (+ Mulege to Mission Guadalupe; Loreto to San Javier/Comondu/La Purisima).
6) Insurgentes to La Paz and both highways to Cabo San Lucas (+ to Lopez Mateos and Puerto San Carlos; to Mission San Luis Gonzaga, La Pasion, Los Dolores, San Evaristo; to Ensenada de los Muertos/La Ventana; to Tecolote).

Thank you for your interest and support.

The six mini-guides (in addition to the full guide) are completed. However, if needed, they (and the maps) can be edited. It just takes a bit of work with the maps... but Baja is worth it!

The mini-guides are just a little different than I had envisioned earlier.

Baja Norte has :
1) Tijuana to San Quintin (+ Hwy. 3 and San Pedro Martir road logs).
2) Mexicali to Laguna Chapala (+ Hwy. 2; Across Baja via Valle de Trinidad; to Valle Chico/Matomí/Sulfur Mine).
3) San Quintin to Guerrero Negro (+ 'Distant Pacific' Coast Road; to L.A. Bay and Punta San Francisquito).

Baja Sur has:
4) Guerrero Negro to San Ignacio (+ to El Arco and El Barril; Vizcaino to Tortugas area; to Abreojos and on to Asuncion; San Ignacio to San Juanico, and on to Insurgentes, and Lopez Mateos).
5) San Ignacio to Loreto (+ Mulege to Mission Guadalupe; Loreto to San Javier/Comondu/La Purisima).
6) Loreto to La Paz and both highways to Cabo San Lucas (+ Puerto San Carlos; to Mission San Luis Gonzaga, La Pasion, Los Dolores, San Evaristo; to Ensenada de los Muertos/La Ventana; to Tecolote).

Here are a couple sample pages:

(South of Ensenada)


(South of San Felipe)


(Sideroad, south of Constitución)

Hi Dave! I am back on the boardwalk in Newps.
I will travel to San Diego soon to fly my Baja plane a bit to prep for my Jun 1 BOLA trip.If you can break away from your cartography for a moment I'll stop by and by you lunch.
Speaking of my BOLA trip. Are there any adventuros BajaNomads out there who want to fly with me to BOLA.
I guarantee you a yellowtail or two and a good sunburn.
The airplane ride will be fast, interesting, and routine.
I flown in there a bunch.
We can split a nice boat. I can carry all rodes and coolers.
4 people max besides the pilot.
The are a few 30 ft pangas that can take 5 anglers easy.

Thank you!
As one who has used Baja road guides since before I could drive (reading Gerhard & Gulick to my dad as we four-wheeled down the Baja roads in the 60s), I put it together in what I considered user-friendly.

*Samples of scenery along the way with the photos
*Uses the existing kilometer markers on highways to easily find points
*Uses trip-odometer on the dirt roads
*No tedious GPS data downloading
*At-a-glance orientation maps

u2u or email me if you would like to know more

My pleasure Cappy.
Harald, that must be new as the sign on Hwy. 1 and other references say San Antonio de la Sierra. I first went on that road with Jimmy Smith (The Grinning Gargoyle) all the way to the Güerribo trees back in 2001. Can you show me where you saw the different name? Not just my map but the guide text would need editing. Thank you very much.

You're welcome!
Thanks to the sharp eye of a Nomad, Map 23 was edited with accent marks added to two place names.
