Rad! We've got a couple routes that we would like to do as the years roll on.

This trip is already booked but keep in touch for future trips. We like to keep a limit on # of trucks we go with to keep us moving along since the route is very much point-to-point and there are hotel reservations to hit with margs to be drank!

Thanks guys.
JOAO yeah I was on my way to baja when you posted that, i think.
appreciate the compliment snoracer.

Here's a little trip report from our Baja offroad vacation.

Thursday night, hit SD super late and crashed at one of the guys' house.
Up early friday morning to hit highway miles all the way to santo thomas via TJ & ensenada.

From santo thomas it's all dirt to san quintin (at least that's what we planned). Couple stops along the way for beers and views. Man the sunshine was workin' for us the whole trip. so epic.




Bounced around down the coast again all the way to the point near Rancho San Francisco where the shipwreck is and posted up for a few.



Then we realized that we were all starving having skipped lunch (stupid) and decided to book it into the nearest town of Camalu for tacos. not more than 1/4 mile from the highway, one of our guys dropped a tire.. in that the mother f'er went bouncing off down the road. So some spare wheel studs and a tire swap were in order while the rest of us went on a to-go taco mission. On the way to dinner a guy calls on teh radio that I have a wicked tire wobble going on too. Yeah, my tire tried to run away too. It didn't....but it tried.
NBD. highway the last few miles to the Old Mill with a stop an auto parts store to pick up more spare studs & lug nuts.

Old Mill for dinner. Javier is really upping the game down there.
Killer margs & seafood. woo!



Saturday was the vacation day. We drove out to Punta Mazo and found a secluded beach and just posted up for a couple hours. home made margs & more beers and some more sun. One of my favorite days ever.



Saturday night we changed hotels to the Santa Maria Inn. Excellent dinner and a hell of a party with some locals we made friends with the year before.

Sunday it was back to Ensenada mostly the way we came.




Epic tacos in ensenada at Tacos El Poblano. ooooh buddy. Go there if you're in baja. holy smokes.

Monday was just a day to get back to the states, but not without stopping for Lobster at Puerto Nuevo.

My buddy did a similar writeup with a few more pics over on DR:

16" but i'm not using all the stroke. I just got a smoking deal on them so I decided to run it. 14" would be more appropriate.
