Well, here it is, the night before the big departure. The expedition vehicle is packed (mostly), the refrigerator is cooling down, the sleeping bags are warming up (hopefully) and we’re chomping at the bit. Awaiting us is the magnificent Baja peninsula with its migrating Gray Whales, its fabulous rock art, its historic missions and its sandy beaches.
Our satellite telephone is primed and ready to transmit our journals and update our website. As a matter of fact, this page and every following page will be sent via Telenor Satellite Services. A big thanks to them for joining our team and allowing us to bring you updates no matter where we may find ourselves.
And we expect to find ourselves in all kinds of interesting places. The Baja peninsula is a fascinating place and we hope you will join us as we explore deserts with plants that are found nowhere else in the world, experience the culmination of the 6,000 mile migration of the Gray Whales to the lagoons of Baja to give birth, ride mule-back down the arroyos of the Sierra San Francisco to view the most magnificent rock art this side of France and visit a turtle beach near Cabo San Lucas.
Follow along and
experience the joy of discovery and the warmth of the Mexican people.
Come along to Baja!
