Most likely March 2005. Mark your calendars.

In the fall of 2005 I might venture to Bahia de Los Angeles, bring the Zodiac and go whale chasing...ahm,watching.

Uwe,

Ever consider a Christmas Baja trip?

The reason I ask is, being a teacher, I get two weeks off for Christmas every year (Death Valley, here I come)...

and that Corona Holiday commercial keeps coming to mind...you know the one.

The weekend of 11/4-8 seems good to us. Is this a 3 nighter? Any less is hard to justify the trip.

Wednesday through Sunday, I figured.
My wife is workin on getting Thursday/Friday off, so we can leave Thursday early, meet with everybody in El Centro, and then go on to San Felipe for Thursday night, Friday night, Saturday night. Return day would be Sunday.
Sort of a repeat of the last trip, only I would meet you at El Centro, instead of driving there with you.

Kid sensitive holidays like Christmas or special days like Halloween are off limits for me. Dirty looks from 7 grandkids would kill me! They want me there, and I love it!

That sounds good. We will go down to Desert Hot Springs on Wed eve. Hook up in El Centro and then on down. We may stretch the way back in one day or stop at DHS again.

I will have my wife request the time.

A Wed evening rendezvous in Desert hot Springs works for us. For others info. it is a straight shot easy drive south to El Centro and over at Mexacali.
Lots of selection of r.v. parks, no reservations req'd. in DHS all with thermal waters.

The ferry trip from Mazatlan to La Paz on Baja is outrageously expensive. I took it about 5 years ago, and it cost $475 for my wife and I plus our little Toyota Pickup. That price was the "cheapie" fair. At Mazatlan, you have to show up about 10:00 AM then about 1:00 PM they direct you to pull your vehicle on the ferry "Aztec". Once your vehicle is parked, you could not return to it for any reason until landing at La Paz. We thought we might be able to sleep in the truck bed, but no way! Up stairs in the salon, most of the facilities in the restrooms were clogged and overflowing and maintenance was absent, at least during our trip. You arrive in La Paz the next morning, so you better not need to use the facilities. Some may say it made me the way I am today!

We love traveling in Baja, but riding the ferry from Mazatlan was one of the most negative experiences I've ever had. On the other hand, the fantastic scenery of Baja and great fish taco's will lure me back some day!

Similar experiences visiting the Copper Canyon. The roads from the Texas border at Presidio to Creel were so rough, you couldn't travel over 40 mph even if you wanted. Our cat "Thomas" even got motion sickness. In some places, 5 mph was too fast. In Creel at the outskirts of the Copper Canyon, prices were at or above US mainland prices. The 56 mile drive from Creel to Divisidero at the heart of the canyon was the best road of the trip, passing thru beautiful scenic areas, but guess what, virtually no pull-outs so you could stop and enjoy the views and take some pictures. And of course when you would like to drive slower and enjoy the scenery, there's always someone behind you wanting to pass or they will surely explode. The train ride must be a much better alternative.
