Default Baja trip

Thank you Scott for the write up, first class as usual. We have been twice, and you hit most of my favorite stops. I am jealous that I didn't go this year. This is the perfect time of year to go, if you don't get a hurricane. We did once and had to spend a couple of extra days at Mulege. I can think of worse places to get stuck.

Many thanks for sharing.

one question:
how did you pay for the landing fees, etc.?

do they take credit card? or USD$? Mp$?
Great question, I was wondering the same thing before I left.
I paid for almost everything with US dollars. They took a credit card for fuel at Loreto but no where else. It is safe to just bring cash to pay for everything.

Scott, sweet write up! I can't wait to show friends who make the 18 hour drive to San Carlos for surfing and winsurfing trips by car! Maybe 4-5 hours of that (depending upon conditions) is completely off road and passing abandoned rigs (no AAA here), so you can imagine how awful that trip would be.

Also, someone told me Coke works well for currency, too.

ok, time to make more progress and find that drill again...
