That's the route that JP Magazine and 4LO attempted. At the top of Bad Hill, it can get dicey. I've never run it in that direction before. Could get tippy as you round toward the top. Lose traction or slip sideways, and you might be in for a rollover or worse.

The La Rumorosa dirt road is an interesting grade to go down. I've been down it several times but never went up it.

I have seen some recent posts showing a trip uphill with Saturnino from Mexicali and Willy from Tijuana. It looks like a fun route.

If you guys go to Mikes then care to do La Joya route to El Coyote. I can meet you at Mikes guild the way on La Joya route. I don't think any you guys have done that ride. Since your trip looks hard core Jeep run don't think the Nissan could do it too low. On my moto no problem as I said before good run for Jeeps SxS maybe short WB big tires truck with mods. When I get time I will mod the Nissan with 2in body lift and try to fit 285x 75 16 33s.

All the routes look interesting for the adventure. I have to keep in mind that I will have a 1600+ mile drive back home in a daily driven JK. I don't mind some challenging runs, but if it is a day of major winching and grinding over some bigger rocks that might make things a bit more difficult to get my JK back home in one piece. The route that Harald mentioned looks interesting. https://carlosnpainter.smugmug.com/Events/Manly-Men-Baja-201...
I've been encouraged by the wife that we need to end up on the beach for some camping and surf fishing at some point in the trip.

So, 5 trail driving or relaxing days leaving one for the drive down and one for the drive home, 2 extra if they have 9 days. Lots can be covered!

Akula is requesting time off from work. I want/need downtime in between work snd the run for rest/recovery. Several people have expressed interest in a Baja run, but Akula and Karen are making the long drive from Canada, so I'm planning around their schedule.

I'm taking a total of two weeks off Ken. This will give us a bit more freedom to take our time down there.

Two weeks sounds good ½ time on the trail and the other half on the beach.
