Our month-long Baja adventure has ended and we are back in the USA! However, there is just so much more I need to share. In thinking back over the trip, I realized the total experience taught me many things – some of which I think I knew but needed to be reminded, and others were … More Lessons Learned From the Baja!
One of the things that all full time RVers have to deal with is getting their vehicle serviced and maintained. My son continually reminds me that it’s similar to owning and supporting a brick and mortar home – the difference being that most often a service person comes to your home, fixes whatever needs fixing … More Loving it in La La Land!
As promised, this will be my final blog post regarding our Baja adventure. Our last two days, traveling back to Tecate, where we crossed the border, included two of the most interesting and unique wine experiences I have ever encountered. On February 23, we traveled from San Quintin to Santo Tomas, where the RVers camped … More One Last Sip!
We reconnected with our caravan partners on Tuesday, February 19 and left Mulege after spending 16 days on our own in the Baja. Our destination was Guerrero Negro, where we will spend two nights, the highlight being a whale watch tomorrow! We drove about 180 miles including a steep trip up the “Hill from Hell” … More The Tale of the Nocturnal Hot Dog
Our final day in Loreto was a cloudy, windy day but enjoyable nonetheless! Rather than begin our day with a long walk on the malecon, we drove to find a Sunday farmer’s market we had heard about. Unfortunately, it appeared to more of an eclectic flea market so we just did a drive-by. Heading back … More Transition Day…Loreto to Mulege
We have really been enjoying our week in Loreto, but yesterday afternoon we traveled back up to Mulege to attend a birthday party. Jerry, our tailgunner (the last one in the caravan of RV’s), and Becky, one of our two wagonmasters (the leaders of the caravan), both celebrate birthdays in February. Four years ago, Jerry … More This is How We Party in Mulege!
Today is Day 8 of our Baja adventure, and although I have taken tons of pictures and want to share absolutely everything we are doing, it has become frustrating due to lack of internet…trouble downloading pictures, service shutting down before the post is completed – you get the picture. I will, however, continue to attempt … More Loreto…a Major Exhale!
So after three days of no service, I finally have internet once again – sort of and can share our caravan experiences! Let’s categorize it accordingly… Friends … Of course we’ve fostered many new friendships as we travel with Baja Winters, but the “leaders of the pack.” if you will, are John and Becky Smith. … More Mexican Friends, Flora, Fauna and Food!
Every so often, even workampers deviate from their regular plans to do something adventurous and new. We worked the crazy Florida kiosk job during November and December so we would have the time – and the money – to join a 30-day caravan to Mexico with Baja Winters. Caravan, you say? Mexico? Correct, on both … More Dropping Off the Grid…
So, what does a couple do after spending 2 long, yet interesting, months at a kiosk in basically a cocoon state of mind? Well, after eating homemade salads and sandwiches each day – that is until we morphed into consuming a daily fast food mall treat as the weeks went on – one thing we … More Is There Life After the Kiosk?
