    3 Weeks in Baja – Surfing, SUPing and Dirt Roading

    275/70r18 wrapped around Fuel Shok wheels, offset 0mm. In hindsight, should have gone w/ something closer to stock offset... Probably could have gone with a 285 had I done that. But I can't go backwards now. I still rub ever so slightly fully loaded, locked and crawling (I think on my mud...

    3 Weeks in Baja – Surfing, SUPing and Dirt Roading

    We were hopeful they would shape up. Woke up to a grey day -- honestly a little hungover -- waited until mid-tide and called it. Seems like it would be quite the scene during a northerner. So many camp spots, lots of use... I preferred the solitude feeling further north, where it was much more...

    Haha... Yeah, I felt for those guys. Hot hot hot! I never once asked to snap a photo – I just tried to be as accommodating as possible. You never know who you're going to get and what his day has been like. A friend of mine who wrote the guide book "West Mexico, from Sea to Sierra" told me just...

    Dogs are most certainly welcome. I was great being able to have him keep the other scavengers (dogs) out of our camp while we were out surfing.

    Pretty wild. My spanish is okay – survivalist spanish is what I call it, so it's harder for me to have good conversation. We did have one interesting moment on the Cortez side later on the trip, where we were out near Punta San Francisquito and rolled up on two trucks packed full of soldiers...

    I got out there... I got punished, but went for it. Didn't really got my good sessions in until the end at of the trip up the East Cape. Was cool being out there though... some of these points really pick up the swell. Hopefully one day will be able to ride some double overheads.

    Well... alas, here's Ep. 3. Once we found the surf, there wasn't much time for filming, so what you get is more "truck porn". I must say, the Pacific side is RAW and remote. So cool to be out there in the elements, doing what we love.

    Yeah, that's my grampa's old move! He would bring cartons of cigarettes. That's rad to hear other people do that. I was half tempted, but didn't know what the military checkpoints would be like nowadays. Pretty chill overall. Helps to have a dog – breaks the ice a bit. I brought a gravity...

    Best food is where the locals eat. And better yet, if they don't speak english. You order in English, you know you'll be paying the gringo tax.

    LOL... yup!! More like hundreds of "overland rigs" traveling in packs. Definitely cool to see the rigs, but sometime it's hard to find a camp.

    One thing I did notice is yes, the locals want traffic. Fishing camps / villages have little restaurants that are run by families. It's another revenue stream for them. In fact, I saw several little towns asking to use their hashtags... pretty wild. People like us who have the ability and a...

    I have the 3.5 Eco w/ the 3.55 e-locker. It rallied like a charm. Deflated down to 25 f/r once I hit the dirt, back up to 40 when I hit the 1. Never thought I needed more oomph when passing semis. Loved every bit of it! Getting close to releasing ep. 3 – pretty fun stuff. Whipped my ass some...

    Thanks. I had several discussions about this with all kinds of people. I've heard varying reports. I'm keeping a watchful eye on it. Seems fine as of now... If I do recall, several slide-in campers have their tanks on their sides.

    I appreciate you for bringing this to my attention. Like Regcabguy, I don't intend to ruin the discovery aspect of a place. BUT what I don't appreciate is how much you troll on this site. Your tone and attacking mentality is not productive and makes people defensive. If you want people to be...

    3 Weeks in Baja – Surfing, SUPing and Dirt Roading

    Okay, I understand. The camps on the Pac side did seem to see a ton of traffic (probably during the winter swells). I'm glad I posted on here... Didn't realize naming spots was as faux paw as I'm starting to realize. I try to be sensitive to such things (afterall, my family has had a house in...
