Ok, lots of planning to do, but making progress.
We are looking for trip sponsors to get discounts on items/products for our Baja Adventure: such as racks (BajaRack stepped in), camping equip or portable freezer (American RV Company wants to help), and sponsorship dollars for celebration lunch/dinner baja style... More on this later.
Speaking of planning: tourist card will be needed, along with vehicle insurance, and more details coming including routes, timeline, food, traveling in caravans for safety, drinking water, fuel @ Pemex stations, pesos/carrying cash/travelers checks, law of the land e.g. no guns, drugs.... More on this later also.
While Carlos and I create the draft trip sheet with all the details to help us make this a fun, safe and succesfully trip, we wanted to know who would be interested in going; we know Antonio, Nigel and a few others are.
Let's firm it up again here.
Time frame will be a back to back wknd in Oct = Fri/Sat/Sun/Mon/Tue/Wed/Thur/Fri/Sat/Sun. 10 days total. Exact date to be determined based on which date yield best for the group.
Just to give you an idea. Will leave the Bay Area on Fri, spend the 1st night near the border US side, and fresh start driving thru Mexicali early Saturday morning... and rest let the adventure being Saturday to Saturday. And then back in the Bay Area Sunday.
Pls post if interested and answer the following basic Qs for now.
Name and how many family members/members who will be traveling with you?
Do you speak Spanish (not req but good to know who speaks and doesn't)?
Which Land Rover truck are you taking (will help with the spare parts to carry planning)?
What back to back wknd, and wknd days are you avail?
How many traveling in your family/group?
Do you have any medical condition(s) e.g. diabetic that we should be aware (PM me if preferred to chat privately)?
Do you have ham/CB radio (one of these or both will be required for the trip)?
Do you have a Satelite phone (not req) - just want to know and does it have coverage in Mexico?
