Mood: Excited for Baja!

The roads have improved that is for sure. I don't know how far south you are going, but if you are entering at Mexicali I assume down Mex 5? South of San Felipe there were many road and bridge washouts so a lot of work-arounds. Are you planning on heading west after entering and going down 1? Much wider now, there are actually shoulders here and there and further south many bridges have been built over washes. As far as feeling safe, I always feel safe and I am a 59 year old female who often drives alone 600 miles south of the border!

Baja Mama,
Thanks for the info.
That is exactly correct, Denver to Mexicali with a possible stop at Guadalupe canyon oasis, then south to San Felipe for a night then keep heading south to San Ignacio lagoons, Mulegé, Loreto, La Paz and maybe los barriles. I think I will just have to look at the camping aspect a little different meaning camp near, not necessarily right next to, but close to others Vs searching out a private secluded area.

Given that you never asked any questions in the opening post or later, I have no doubt that you have already decided what you are going to do, before even coming to this forum :)...

My post referred solely to one of "stated" goals, i.e. showing remarkable places to a 2-year old. Shouldn't have probably read too much into this, either.

Nah, he's got it backwards. Infantile amnesia - the period that you later don't remember much about - covers first 4 or 6 years, not 13.

So should he go now or wait until 7?
