Me, Bigburlynakedguy, SteelFuser, bob91yj and our significant others all headed down to Baja for a week in the dirt.
This is our Baja trip word for word from my wifes journal...
In to Mexico.
Tecate border at 7:30 a.m.
30 miles to La Rumurosa.
We hit dirt at 8:45. Tequila shots!
Rumurosa grade was crazy. Grade with switch backs. Eric says it drops 4000 ft in 2 miles.
Passes some hikers but no other vehicles.
Lots of scary cliffs but beautiful terrain, ocotillo, barrel cactus's (look like thumbs) basalt shooting out of the hill sides, black lizards.
I wanted to get out several times but Eric refused. I think he would have been embarrassed.
Connon De Guadalupe at 10:45. Hungry, but we hadn’t seen any restaraunte's since we got off the pavement. Haven’t seen much of any civilization since we hit dirt, just the occasional ranchito.
It's been very slow going these last miles. Pretty sure Eric made a wrong turn but wont admit it. He's said we're ten miles out 3 different times now and keeps saying that the GPS says we're headed south and that’s what counts...
Truck sputtered. Eric poured both extra gas cans in the truck.
Trail seems to be getting worse. Climbing, dropping, not getting anywhere on GPS
Wrong turn. Stuck behind fence.
Mexican gentleman in a Toyota saved us. Cut barbed wire fence and lead us to Hwy. 3. Gave him 300 pesos, about 30 bucks.
(Helping our new amigo mend the fence)
4:30 Valley T - Valley de Trinidad.
Lunch! Eating much needed tacos. I've been starving.
870 pesos of gas. 500 pesos taco's.
