Which way to Mexico? After dropping the kids at the airport we find ourselves a campground where we stay for 4 nights. The sites are minuscule but the internet works well and the spa is hot. We’re happy. We’ve been…

Minnie First, a quick update on Minnie’s state of health. I’m glad to say she is now doing much better. It’s pretty incredible how fast she has recovered from her near death experience. Only the areas where she was shaved…

Fun is a relative term. That’s why some people’s favourite roads are what others would call “bad”. The road, to use the term loosely, to Batopilas from Urique is one of those roads I think everyone can agree is bad,…

That’s cruel. Back in San Felipe, we camped at Playa Bonita campground where we had stayed before on our ATV ride. Seemed like a good idea as the place is in town, on the beach and has wi-fi access for…

That’s Baja!

Baja field trip After spending a few days relaxing and enjoying the company, we feel the itch to move again. Plus, we don’t want to over-indulge into Jim and Carens’ hospitality; or the trip might end right here… We begin…

All I Need

The rain pounded on the roof, wind gusts of over 60mph causing the camper to sway. A slight whistle sounded through the vent, even as our collective breathing fogged the windows. Pacific NW camping during a storm. An excellent idea!…
