Got my chit in order, so make it quick! People I care about know how I feel about them, same as the ones I don't like! Long slow death just doesn't look fun. Go fast while having fun sounds good to me...

Going in Style


An older (60s) acquaintance in Baja (Ensenada) went out fishing one day and the deck crew later found him nodded over dead. We all heard the usual "died doing what he loved" nonsense, but I wondered if he'd rather have been back at the casa doing the teenage gal he'd shared his bed with.

OR, living to fish (and screw) another day-week-month-year ?

He certainly expected he might.

'Till Death Do Us Part

By Fred Hoctor
The following is an excerpt from the book Baja Haha which, although a popular book among many veteran Baja travelers, seems not to have yet been discovered by the latest aficionados of the peninsula.


The American retirement communities in Baja fairly burst with dingbats who march to different drummers.

Mr. Dimmick is one. He's a guy who always seems to be in some kind of difficulty.

Dimmick -- "The first name's Theophilus, but (self-conscious chuckle) you can call me Ted" -- is a tall, skinny, disaster-prone nebbish who always has a story about his latest Baja "troubles," usually told in a monotone with sad resigned eyes and along reflective pauses. He has taken to plastering his sparse strands of dyed-black hair down on his dome with some kind of goo, though I remember his when his follicles were more bountiful. This, combines with his excessive Adam's apple, his paucity of flesh and a certain rolling gait, gives him the appearance of a semi-bald Ichabod Crane.

Surfline has an article about this. His name is Ryk Kluver and is from Cayucos. He sounds like a really great, interesting person. He was surfing at Cardon surf camp in Sinaloa north of Mazatlan.

Good point David. I was thinking that Cardon was being confused. It's a popular point (no longer secret) in Central Baja and a popular surf camp on the Mainland. But perhaps there were two surfer deaths in Mexico last month, despite such being very coincidental.

Yes, I thought the name may be what was confused. Pappy, can you confirm if it was the death was at El Cardon in Baja (Punta Diablo) or could it have been the mainland?

Right person wrong spot. My bad, sorry about that. When a mutual friend called to tell me what happened I was told “ he was in Mexico in the area you go to.” I asked if had any idea of spot he told me cardon.

I thought it strange it was at the Baja location given time of year. Now I know it was in mainland as stated which makes a lot more sense...
My bad...

Why is it so great to go when having fun, just one more of god's jokes. I want to go doing something I really hate so I do not have to complete it.

There's advantages and disadvantages to dying quick vs slow.

Quick, No suffering but you don't have time to get your affairs in order.

Slow death, you get the aforementioned affairs in order, you can say your good by's, you can finish up your bucket list, etc.....

Personally I would rather know it was coming ...

And you ?????


There's also a controlled quick death ala Anthony Bordaine.

So many choices ...
