Yes, thanks Paul... I have revised the San Felipe map to show that... the newer one was shown in another post.

You are correct! :biggrin:
The same thing with 'Shell Beach', 'The Widowmaker', 'Scorpion Bay', 'Shipwrecks', and on and on...

"The barrier island between Percebu and Bahia Santa Maria" was just too much to say, so I came up with "Shell Island", in 1978! :light:

They are all posted in the Road Conditions forum. http://forums.bajanomad.com/viewthread.php?tid=88771

If you can't grab them from there, I can email you the files.

David...Thanks SO MUCH for providing these updated maps & markers. I travel a lot in Baja alone with my dog so these are really helpful considering there are so few map resources (even in Spanish). They will be very useful on my upcoming fall trips.

My pleasure. I hope that you will be able to utilize the road logs in the guide, as well. The publishing of it is in the works.

Here are some sample pages (not necessarily the final edited or updated version, just worksheets):

Thank you... with a life of reading and loving Baja guidebooks, I knew what would be most useful and easy to use. The full guidebook as it is now is 115 pages (8.5x11) and covers all the main roads and many side trips of interest. It is full of photos placed next to or near the text about the place shown. A printed version may be in black & white because of the high cost of color. An online version will be like you see above and you can print it as you wish to take with you.
The guide is made so that it can easily be added to or modified for changes or additions. I have already made edits to reflect the passing of Pancho at San Rafael, the paved road completed to Bahía Tortugas, and any other news I become alerted to. That allows the online version to be as fresh as possible. I traveled over 12,000 miles last year researching for this guide and the GPS map we have, as well. Those research trips are all shared here on Baja Nomad as 'TRIP #1-7' trip reports of 2017. One area I have not yet covered for the guide is the Sierra Juarez (Laguna Hanson) and the west half of Hwy. 3 side trips. So much Baja... so little time!

Now it agrees with the older map or is there really only one map now?
Nice maps. I am glad you can update them quickly.

I have posted it before. This thread is on San Quintin map so the San Felipe map here wasn't updated. All 30 of my maps are in there own thread in the Road Conditions forum. It isn't real quick or easy to change them, but possible.
