Sounds great. I'll try to get confirmation ASAP. It will most likely be my wife and I, and probably bring a SUP to play on the water, unless I get one of the RTTs.

So 2 RRCs, 2 DIIs, 2 LR3s

Cool! Let your wife know that Michael Beaver is trying to get his wife to join this trip; Rupert might bring his GF. So your wife will most likely not the only female going on this trip. Thought I mention this - my wife always ask if she will be the only gal on the trip.

Yes.

The original Mission stop was way way further out; we are researching Missions along our path. Also tweaked the trip a bit perhaps not donating heavy canned to lug around, but instead reading glassing for adults and old toys for kids. Things like prescription reading glasses that my parents have extras or just throw away, or old toys our kids have outgrown can go a long way in those poor communities along Baja.

Okay, I'm in. All set at home and work. I don' think my wife is going so it may just be me, with the possibiliity of a friend joining.

It sounds like the road to Gonza is mostly paved by now - or at least getting closer.

I was thinking of doing the HG myself as a project, but in the interest of time, need for garage space (knowing me a week HG will turn into months - lol) and time needed to prep for the Baja trip, I decided to pay the price. Now I have time focus on the trip.

Wohoo! Glad you are coming Lutz!

We have solid group so far; here's some noise on Expo re: Mexico; recent (last year's incident); most members are supportive of going but some concerns; I think if we stick to the golden rules: 1) travel only during the day/daylight, 2) stay as a group, 3) use common sense will most likely avoid issues. Plus we will not be entering thru TJ.
