We tend to use our gas fire pit more than making a wood fire but there is something primal about a real fire.

Summer time; the milky way is in full bloom.

A dried up century plant into your campfire is instant entertainment Baja style

There was a Baja vet who would have these amazing full moon parties at Rattlesnake Beach south of Puerto Escondido. Great guy.

Anyone remember that guys name?

I like fires! I heat with a wood stove, so for over half the year, fires are a daily thing. I like the flames enough that cleaning the glass door on my stove is a labor of love!

I build big fires as well! I can't possibly turn all my dead, downed, or problem trees into fire wood, so I build piles with a bull dozer and excavator that you can't get close too until they have burned a few hours!

But when I go to Baja, I don't plan on building one on the beach. I know I would enjoy sharing stories around a fire with some of you folks, but when it is just me and my dog, I travel light and keep things simple.

I do bring a laptop and a power supply, so maybe I should plug in a thumb drive with a nice campfire for the ambiance! :coolup:

I'm usually in the sack shortly after sundown. My small campfires are at 5 AM or so with a cup of coffee.

Setting around a camp fire with friends and family is about the best it gets.

Taking firewood into Baja


I am sure that it is a violation, but does it result in confiscation of the wood, being sent back to the US, a fine, or a combination of the above?

Is it legal for a non-resident to cut dead and down trees and bushes along the beach and arroyos?

I have an electric chainsaw now that has been pretty handy and no need for a mixed gas can in the load.

I've never had any problem taking regular firewood to Baja but one time a couple of years ago I had an Italian Cypress I cut down in my back yard it was in about 4 foot lengths and the Mexican border agent read me the riot act about how that was not allowed in Mexico. This was at the TJ crossing and I thought she wanted me to turn around and go back to the US but no she said I could go on but don't do it again.

She was really pretty and got prettier the madder she looked. If I wasn't married I think a love affair may have blossomed. Oh well

maybe she was from Santa Clarita and spotted the Italian Cypress, we had an awful infestation of caterpillars in our cypress trees and all had to be removed. I would say they don't want em in baja but if you've been to Sacrificio in G-bay the beach is covered with em!

Two years ago I wasn't allowed entry to Washington state as I had some firewood in the truck....had to return to Canada to dump the wood.

Damn, it was two night's worth of dry birch and tamarack....:no:

If it is not too far out of your way on your next trip south, swing through Grass Valley CA and I can fill your truck with firewood!
