Hey, we finally hit the road. You can follow us on 2guys1truck.com (bought domain before vehicle, oops), though it should have been called Central and South American Clusterf@#% as we don't know what we are doing haha.
I am currently in Cabo San Lucas, it is spring break....which is why I skipped most of Baja, but will hit it up on the return leg, or another time. For those who don't know, my friend and I are driving a Chevy Astro AWD Van through Central and South America. We quit our jobs, and will either drive for the next 6 months and sell the vehicle, or drive for 12 months round trip. Pictures will be uploaded later this week, and hopefully a video, the "Astrocam" worked well.
Checked out Cerritos Beach on Wednesday, about 15 min south of Todos Santos, or 45 min north of Cabo San Lucas. Cerritos is popular with english speaking locals and tourists, so if you need a break from spanish this place is good. Cerritos is a cresent shaped bay, so there are also many whale sightings here, I was lucky enough to watch one for about 15 minutes, as well as spend some time watching some great surfers. The waves were big, but not huge for here from what I gather. I believe you can sleep here for free, but did not verify that. Again, will add pics.
Spent last night doing some beach camping about 15 min north of Cabo San Lucas. The place was nice, though there are horse tours offered so you wont have it to yourself...but it is close to cabo, and the horse guides said it was no problem to sleep there. The horses run around on their own when not in use, so they were hauling @ss down the paths around me as I reorganized the van...pretty cool.
I don't really feel like the trip is starting till we get back up to La Paz to take the ferry, so stay tuned.
Also, there have been some problems here or there with the site at times, so let me know if you can view it. Some can, others cant. I am not good with the internet, so I am not sure what is going on. Thanks, hope you enjoy the trip.
