Baja California Loop

The North Half

Leader: Jay Lawrence

We will be doing border-to-border loop, covering about 1,100 miles over nine days. To cover that much territory and have some time to stop and smell the roses, there will be days with a lot of driving, some legs as short as 90 miles, but several in the 200 mile range.

September weather should favor us, with Pacific Coast temps in the 70s and Sea of Cortez coast temps in the high 80s. There will be primitive backcountry and beach camping, pictos, historic places, a ghost town, and of course, some beautiful spots and good food. About two thirds pavement and one third back roads. We will mix camping in the outback with a few stops in civilization for food and gas and a motel overnight or two to let folks get a hot shower and a good rest. Required: 4 wheel drive, high clearance vehicle, MEXICAN auto insurance, pesos, FMM tourist visa, full size spare.Vehicles will all need to be well maintained and carry appropriate spare parts and recovery gear. Drivers will need to bring a relaxed demeanor, good will, and a keen eye for road hazards and unskilled local driver shenanigans. Meetup details, itinerary and other trip info will be emailed to trip participants. Contact Jay if you have any pressing questions: This email address is being protected from spambots.
