Bubba, one of these days, you'r'e going to be dangerous when you're able to put together a whole paragraph in any one post.

Let me guest, you're a big Sheriff Joe Arpaio, fan?

I'm a big Senator, Kyrsten Sinema(D) fan, and I like the fact that the state of Arizona, is finally turning blue, as expected.

Isn't turning blue normal when oxygen is cut off from the brain?

Yes it is. No matter what though, ol Jay is always good for a chuckle.

Well, since you brought Sheriff Joe into the conversation, I am a fan. He saved us tax payers a ton of money by feeding convicted criminals for about a buck a day, cut down on utility bills by having them sleep in tents with no AC and put their dead a$$es to work while living off my dime. What's not to like Jay Jay?

Bubba, how do you feel about being pulled over by Mexican cops, for DWW?( driving while white)

I suspect you don't like it anymore than Latinos, in Arizona liked it, who were also US citizens, but were stopped by Sheriff Joe, cops after being racially profiled, simple because of their dark skin, and in hopes they would be undocumented aliens.

Sheriff Joe, is nothing but a criminal racist, who did not follow the US Constitution, did not follow court orders, and who thought he was above the law. He wasn't.

Sheriff Joe, was convicted of criminal contempt. It's just a shame he was not forced to wear pink underwear, and forced to be jailed in a tent jail in the heat.

It's also no surprise that Trump pardoned the guilty disgraced Sheriff, so he could continue to play the race card.

Clearly Joe is the adult in the room. The clowns, not so much.

Regarding the subject of this post, safety in Baja is relative. Safety compared to where?

''Be more afraid driving through the United States than driving across the border into Mexico!''

This statement is nonsense but the point isn't lost. I question my safety driving LA traffic. Otherwise, no. When crossing South through Tecate, I am aware I could be stopped for a bogus traffic violation. On the other hand, I don't read about drive-by shootings down here so that is good news.

When I cross the border, I'm aware the laws of MX are not in my favor. That makes me extra cautious.

If what people read in the media about MX violence makes them ''nervous,'' I recommend not driving down. Fly to MX, stay at a resort. Baja, if anything, is a great testing ground. Be prepared. Have fun!

The media's business is selling news and violence sells. Fear is a byproduct. Deal with the fear and you're 80% there.:tumble:

Road Safety ----- U.S. versus Mexico


Regardless of local conditions, I can say with certainty that (for me) travel in the U.S. is safer.

When I'm on the highway (and mostly when on local roads) in the U.S., there's a loaded 9mm or .45ACP under the driver's seat. Something which I (reluctantly) gave up some years ago when traveling in Mexico.

@joejustjoe & Sanch
Thanks the responses. The area we are focusing on would be from San Felipe headed south to about los Barriles, probably with a stop in agua verde Loreto, Mulegé, San Ignacio lagoons and few other spots like that.
On previous trips the more secluded spots were what we sought out. With the family and less inconspicuous vehicle I was just concerned about attracting attention in places like playa el coyote, santispac, and Playa el Requeson.
agreed, someone wanting my wallet when they have a gun is an easy decision...
Again, just trying to find the balance between showing my other half and kiddo one of the most remarkable places I’ve been to and being a responsible parent..... Still learning that one!
Like I mentioned in the opening post, I’ve never been one to believe all the hype but it’s crazy how much fear reporting there is out there.
Thanks again for the honest opinions and time.

Oh you mean the "border"
But you are right to be concerned for your safety around "boarders"
Boarders are very dangerous... to themselves.
I got the perma-bruises to prove it.

And yes we get upset when our secret spots are revealed.

But like I said... if you search this question some people did it with a newborn baby last year.
Camping in a tent Pacific side I think.
I think the baby was giving a little "whaletail" wave and a "it's cool bru" look.

USA roads are safer. There is no livestock on road. Lanes are wider. Road hazards are marked in USA. Major highways in USA are repaired when erosion or sink holes remove part of lane. In Mexico, the repairs will be done someday, and in meantime there is no marking of missing road,... it’s driver be ware!

Showing the most remarkable places..... to a 2-year old? A lot of good this will do.

Events that happened before the age of 7 will be forgotten almost entirely by the age of 12. By the age of 9 he'll already forget 70% of it, and events from the first 2 years of life will be the first to go.

Moreover, he'll be getting tired of long trips.

The very first beach where you stop, - if he's enjoying it - this is it, this is your destination. Dozen other beaches that are memorable to you, won't make difference to a child at this age.
