Don't think I've ever seen a Navy patrol there...La BARCA might come through looking for poachers, but from what I could tell they hadn't been thru there in a long time. Pero, quien sabe?

thank you tim for your update...I have been watching for them and wondering where they got to....nowhere. Although the next report will be interesting because they couldnt have stayed anchored in this blow...I bet the kids were kinda scared.

Hope for the kids sake they survive the storm. If they do and make it back to the border there will probably be book and TV deals with maybe a reality show to boot.

I hope they didn't wait too long to get the heck out of there. Other than inside of of Scammons lagoon I can't think of a sheltered anchorage along that part of the coast. Hope they found something.

From my inbox:

------
We here at the Consulate were concerned about the stranded family near Punta Cono because the storm passed right by them. I’ve checked the thread on BajaNomad.com, but didn’t see any posts saying people had had recent contact with them. By any chance, would you mind posting a message asking the family to contact the Consulate and/or if any Nomads are in the area and could make contact with them on behalf of the Consulate?

Anyone is welcome to contact me via email at acstijuana@state.gov or via phone at 664-977-2000 ext. 2410.

I’d appreciate any help you and your Nomads could lend.

Best,

Anson McLellan

I suspect that they flooded the internet with the request. At least they would be smart to. Fishing and sailing forums would be excellent places to ask.

i dunno seems kinda tough to sail into an uncoming storm like paul in the boat they have. hopefully they stayed put and sough out some shelter.

since first hearing of this and seeing the pics i always thought if they made it out of cono and headed south, the abreojos reefs might be their next problem. if they made it past that i figured mag bay would be their next area of issue.

If its the Santa Maria just south of San Quintin, its a perfect place.

Sandy bottom and its the closest larger town with lots of people to "lend a hand".

The Santa Rosallilita folks probably told the GN locals what was going on.

Brilliant

I hope those kids are OK. Im guessing they've already seen a lot.

If they did indeed leave CONO it won't matter which Santa Maria they have arrived at. They will just set up a new "freeloader" camp and do it all over again.:O

Watch what happens.....

They didn't really set up a freeloader camp at Cono. They were shipwrecked there. It was unplanned.
