I have no idea if this is already on THE LIST.

Take a cheater bar to bust loose lug nuts when you get a flat. I just had to change a tire and I couldn't have done it without my 4 foot cheater bar (a piece of galvanized pipe that fits over the lug nut wrench). The yahoo who rotated my tires last year must have gone crazy with the impact wrench.

In general be totally prepared to change a flat. In addition to the equipment that came with my truck I take the cheater bar, a two foot long 4x12 to use as a base for the jack, and an extra bottle jack.

I have used this thread when preparing for trips, appreciate it.

Good advice on being prepared to change a flat. I might add that a cross type lug wrench is much less likely to snap off a frozen lug nut than the cheap single arm lug nut wrench that comes standard with most vehicles.

And a 24" piece of pipe as a cheater bar to slip over the lug wrench almost makes repairing a flat enjoyable!:lol::lol::lol::lol:

I have a 3/4" drive breaker bar, you can put tremendous torque on it. And you can slip a pipe on the end if that isn't enough.

I highly recommend an "ophthalmic" antibiotic, have saved a few trips when people got something in their eyes or eye infections.

Hi Bajajudy,

I am crossing toe boarder tomorrow morning and I still can't find a Baja Map. Even the link you sent is out of maps and bird guides.

I hope HWY 1 is well marked!!!!!

This is a 2005 thread, so no surprise if the maps and books Judy sold then are no longer available.

Where are you going? There are not many highway choices so getting lost is only something that can happen in a city, like getting across Ensenada. Fortunately, the highway on south to San Quintin is signed at key intersections. If you get on a street and are not sure, just head in the general direction (South) and you will eventually be done with Ensenada.

As for overall maps of the country you are driving through, just let me know where you are going and I will post some maps here or email them to you, whatever is easy for you to print them out.

Here is a peninsula map:



If you are not going beyond Loreto (2/3 of Baja):



Here is the general Ensenada region, with highway choices, and south to San Quintin:

Oral Rehydration Salts. You can make your own BUT when you feel like S**t it is easier just to mix and drink.

UDO!

Thanks for the tip about dying!

No one plans to BUT...
