Border Crossing

We decided to cross into Baja via Tecate this year. The previous two years, we crossed in Mexicali, but came back up through Tecate last year and decided since we weren’t going down Hwy 5 after seeing reports of massive storm damage, in addition to the who the heck knows when it will ever be […]

2018 Highlights

That’s a wrap for 2018. We started off the new year with friends, in Anza-Borrego, went to another Xscapers bash in Arizona and California, went back to Baja, drove Highway 395 in California, back in the NW for summer and fall, enjoyed the awesomeness of Moab, Utah, and finished the year in Arizona. Here’s a […]


We did a quick day trip down to Algodones, Mexico. I think the town exists for the sole purpose of providing cheap dentistry, drugs, optical, and booze to visiting gringo snowbirds staying in the Yuma area. We picked up our 120 day FMM tourist cards in preparation for our Baja trip next month. Our next […]

We had wanted to get back to La Conner and Port Townsend in Washington and found space at […]

Highway 395 North

After leaving Baja, we spent a few days at the Pio Pico and Wilderness Lakes Thousand Trails campgrounds in Southern California.  Wilderness Lakes was anything but wilderness as it turned out to be surrounded by the ever-growing suburbs of LA. We did enjoy some wine tasting in nearby Temecula and Jaime cranked through some laundry. […]

Valle de Guadalupe, Baja Wine Country

For our last stop in Baja we headed to the beautiful Valle de Guadalupe from San Felipe. Highway 3 was a little rough in the desert but the bigger potholes were patched and passable. Once we got closer to Ensenada the last section of the highway was pretty twisty with cars passing you on blind […]
