Anyone from PNW heading past Vizcaino soon? SuperScrappy did it! Gracias.


My friend
Jaime Morales Villavicencio who lives in Bahia Asuncion and cares for the Biosphere there, asked me find some books for him. They are on order and I need to find someone to drive them south or get them on a bus at the border.
I live right on I-5 near the Oregon border. Any ideas?

I don't think you could put them on a bus and get them to your destination in Bahia Asuncion.

I may be going in June but I'm not sure yet . I will let you know if I do.

Since I've given up all hope, I feel much better

I could drop them at Mario's in GN next week. Can you mail them to the bay area to arrive no later than Monday 5/21?

The books haven't arrived yet, so I don't know the time line, but I'll sure do it if it can be done. Thanks

I will be going to BA in July from Ensenada. I may be able to help if the books are not there yet.

I am generally in South San Diego about every 2-3 weeks.

Baja Mama, I just got the books. I'm going to make SURE there isn't a time problem by going with delivery at the end of the month. Thanks for the offer.


SuperScrappy, please PM me your address, I'll shoot you a small package ASAP.

I wonder if that is the same radio Junior sold to us when he needed money and we ended up giving back to him. He was one we never hesitated to loan money to when he was not being paid because he always paid it back. He would accept gifts, but never EXPECTED gifts as some do.

vgabndo, Jamie should enjoy wading through those books. :-)

And if anyone is looking for something to take to him and his family for all they do for everyone, they LOVE French Roast Coffee beans and we miss taking them down to him. We used to buy the San Francisco Beans at Costco.

I want to give a nice "shout-out" to SuperScrappy for delivery of books to Bahia Asuncion. I just got a message that they've arrived perfectly. Gracias.
