    Baja in a Dodge b1500 van with 2 dogs

    I thought I'd catch you up on the last 2 months driving through #baja on my own in an old conversion van. I'll add photos to start but will add info later on routes and beaches found. Oh, and my radiator died at Coco's Corner, limped it to Bahia de Los Angeles then towed to Guerrero negro.
