RIP Pancho! Thanks for all the info being posted here. Stopping in San Rafael will never be the same. Glad we got to chat and hang out with him in Feb this year. Condolences to all his friends.

Our friend of many years, Mike Humfreville is also buried at Bahía de los Angeles cemetery...



The photo was taken shortly after the burial, November 2006.

So sad...I was there the 10th and I believe it was Mexicali Jose said he would be back that weekend. We were sad to miss him, always one of our favorite spots to stop. RIP Legend.

I've always wanted to stop at that cemetery and look around. Now I will every time I go through there just to see Pancho and have a beer with him.

I know schedules are impossible but when Jose let's me know what he has planned for some kind of service there I will post it up in case any of you are down that way. I will be there for sure and it can be a when you are there on going thing to stop in, add something to the memorial and maybe post up some pictures of the ever growing tribute to a Baja legend.

I guess now Carlos Slim can buy Pancho's property. A couple of years ago Pancho told me that Slim wanted to buy his property but he wouldn't sell.

We just got back from BOLA and got there a day late for the burial. Pancho was buried next to Juan's cousin Frederico's wife..it was a double header at the panteon that day. It was a sad time as several locals passed on in the last couple weeks.

DEP Pancho

Who owns the property now? Is there an Ejido there?

Isn't there a young(?) couple living at the ranch near Pancho's place? If so they may know about the dog and/or Jose.

David maybe you should send Bajazly an email about the dog or put Henri in touch with Bajazly.

I gave Henri the links to this and the new thread I made this morning, for his dog. If Bajazly looks at Nomad, it should be seen by the two of them?
Thanks, Tom!

Just in case someone doesn't see this in the other thread I'll put it here too. And after reading the other thread more carefully, it is the black dog in question.

I believe the dog in question is a medium size black dog. I asked Mexicali Jose what happened to the dogs and he said Ranchero Jose had them. The rancho is about a mile North of San Rafael on the west side of the road. The first well used turn off to the left, heading north, will go to the rancho.

Kind of a bummer that he wasn't buried around his Oasis/beach. If someone is going to make a memorial at his campo I would be happy to put in some money or help if the timing is right? Sure will miss the guy!

Probably. I hear he already bought BOLA airport. Don't know what he is up to, but this can't be good. Too much power in the hands of one never is.

I have been stopping in to have a beer and chat (that was always interesting) with Pancho for a few decades. One time I brought my wife on my big BMW GS, he always asked about her after that - she speaks beautiful Spanish. I liked to bring my dirt bike vets and Baja newbies to San Rafael on the way south. Last Feb he made us tortillas with butter and cold beers, heaven. His place looked the best ever, sorry to see a bit of Baja lore pass.
I'm trying to ride it as much as I can before progress claims the remoteness and charm. My first Baja trip, 1960, Papa Diaz's stone house and a few room was all there was in BOLA. My landlord in San Diego and he grew up together, he sent me down in 1977 with a letter - they treated us like family. Saludos Poncho!

From Henri, the dog's owner on July 27 (last night):

So I went on Panchos grave at Bahia , and then at S Rafael to find out that my dog died a couples weeks after Pancho;
Jose told me she refused to eat …..
Panchos place is now empty since Jose has taken everything out to the ranch….he is waiting for some kind of a permit to take over himself
Of course Pancho himself will be irreplaceable and I will probably never go back there;;;;;;;Regards Henri
