On our way back to our camp, we stopped to help them pull their boats up on shore, and as a thanks they gave us a gunnysack full of crab claws! We steamed them in a big pot, and ate crab till I thought I was going to bust.

Love Baja.

Nice pics and story. Looks like another awesome trip to add to the memory banks.

Do you guys always stay at hotels when possible or do any tent camping? Just curious of what you have found works the best.

This year we did zero camping with the exception of the crew from Colorado that camped the whole time.

My recomendation would be either camp the whole time or split it up a little depending on your route.
I liked our 1000 trip. We camped about everyother night or so.

We'll be camping our way down to La Paz'ish and back up in November this year for the mil.

Two of our guys were called out for that in Tecate this time, we thought that they were joking.

tabs were failing.

The border agent threatened to send me back for mud on the Jeep. He let me through, but it was a lesson learned for the next trip.

I thought he was kidding when he mentioned it, but he wasn't.

8 of the 9 trucks I was with got denied at the border less than 2 weeks ago after a 5 day trip. Had to drive/tow through downtown TJ to find a car wash then wait in line for another 4 hrs. Not fun

Here is a pic of Ryan's truck about to be part of the sea of cortez. You can see the water almost reaching his front tires!

My Lab, Moqui enjoying the cool water of the fountain after doing what Lab's do, retrieve. Then of course a nap in Eric's cot on top of the casa.

The biggest Ocotillo I have ever seen.

Then of course you have to go bowling in Baja!
