Baja Mexico TREK Sept 1st- Oct1st 2018 Tactate' to Cabo and back

Post by gun45boat » Thu Feb 22, 2018 5:46 pm

Leaving for Baja Mx for a month from Sept 1st to Oct 1st 2018 Starting in Florida and entering in through Tacate' for a full full down to Cabo and back.. Camping and surfing the entire Pacific Side, and hitting up the salt flats to Scorpion Bay to Cabo.. Then hitting up the Sea of Cortez back north to exit through Tacate'

TOSSING it out there if anyone wants to attend.

Will be my 3rd run out so I am pretty knowledgeable if anyone wants to attend.

Let me know.

That sounds like a trip of a lifetime. When my son is a few years older I'm definitely going to make that sort of trip.

I'm all sorts of envious.

What does your truck/sleeping setup look like?

Thanks.. It is an epic trip, thats why I try to do it every year with the kids (adults now) and they beg me to go every year.. It is truly the most desolate beaches and kindest people I have ever been too. I must do on your "bucket list"

This is the set up that I have run for years and seems to work VERY well and averages about 11-12mpg.
and can get into some rough places as it is not too big

If you all change your mind, and get a wild hair/only live once attitude,,,,, Would enjoy the company

That's a killer setup. You've got damn near every toy needed.

Post up your pics when you make the run

Any interest in going around the B1000? I’m considering going this year with a group from the go-fast side of things

first off....where are you in florida... secondly... quite lucky to have that diesel but still only 11 or 12MPG?

thirdly, your setup is just about gold in my books. your trailer is in my dreams

Thanks, Ive done BAJA a few times and decided to find a way to bring the necessary toys ;) I am in Sorrento, Fl Near Orlando (sort of)

With that set up with the small trailer in the pics I do average about 13-14mpg @ 80mph

With the Camper installed and towing the Tandem flatbed with the PW and the SXS (24' flatbed) I average about 11-12mpg @ 80mph I get MUCh better fuel economy if I run her at 65-70mph (but who the hell wants to do that:):):)

Im kinda stuck to those dates because the Swell at Scorpion Bay are epic during those times and the guys I'm rolling with are good for those dates too. But I go every year, and am always interested in a trip during ANY of the races in Baja.. It is always a killer time to travel in Baja.
