Off The Grid goes South!


Today mid-afternoon at the restaurant at Chapela! This is a guided tour they supply wheels or bring your own! 3rd day out on the way to Cabo! 3 rollovers so far. $5-6K includes meals and lodging! Rollovers extra! Looks like lots more Baja newbes!

Looks fun, can't wait to get my SXS down to Baja. I'm putting a Tecate to Cabo ride together for a bunch of friends the year after next. Everyone pays their own way, so it won't be crazy $$$$.
Working on a ride back for all of our rigs from Cabo so we don't have to make a return run as well.

David,

No, food is still great, lot’s more customers but no major changes inside, the old location is now a store with an SOS box in front of the old location.

Group Razor tours seem to be a new upcoming thing though. This was the 3rd one just this month.

They were selling these earlier, they’re selling can cozies now! Pictures of the store when we’re by in a couple of weeks! 94f there yesterday! 66f at the 28th!

Thanks.
Yes, The Eagle Monument (at 28° Parallel) is by the Pacific Ocean and the May-Gray, June-Gloom is normal. Laguna Chapala is in the center of the peninsula and thus dryer/ hotter.
