We will meet in Chula Vista, California . The location is at the Denny’s Restaurant at the "E" Street andI-805 exit in Chula Vista, CA, USA We will leave at 8:30 AM or when we are all ready. You can buy your Mexican Insurance on-line. There is a La Quinta Inn Motel at this location Ph. (619) 691-1211. The Mexican Government has a new charge for all visitors going beyond Ensenada of $15.00. This charge is not included in the cost of the adventure.

We will leave at 8:00 AM . The route and itinerary takes us south on I-805 to Tijuana, following the signs to the Toll Road or to Rosario. The Toll Road has 3 booths prior to Ensenada, the amount varies from $1.25 to $2.25. This is the best way to see the coast and the resorts, for some future adventure. We will have one hour to do some quick shopping or sightseeing in Ensenada. We will leave from the junction of Hwy. 1 and Calls Austin Sanguineous, in the shopping center parking lot. The road south is paved but has no shoulder as it winds through the hills. We will have a late lunch and gas stop in San Vicente, keep a few snacks handy. After our tanks are full it’s to San Telmo De Abajo, this is where we leave the pavement and follow Rio San Telmo. This will take us into the foothills toward the Observatory and our first night at the at Mike’s Sky Ranch . We will try our skills at 4-Wheeling. The next 15 miles Before Mike’s can take 2 to 4 hours, the road conditions can vary every few months. We will be on some of the roads that are used in many of the Baja Races. We will spend the night at "Mikes Sky Rancho" rooms are included with dinner and breakfast. Next morning, we have two routes to Valle De Trinidad towards Laguna Hanson, with lunch along the way. We will take Hwy. 3 to Independencia for gas. Our next turn-off is to Laguna Hanson in the National Park. We will be slowly climbing elevation to a pine forest and a natural lake set in among beautiful rocks. The clean fresh air is a great location for a Pot Luck Dinner, we ask all to join in.. We will try our skills at camping (and with the sky full all of it’s stars to listen to our camp fire stories). Morning brings a hardy Breakfast as we prepare to wander through the Pine and Oak trees to arrive La Rumorosa. We go West to El Condor to top off with gas if we need it on Hwy. 2. Our last stop is at Tecate to shop or sightsee before we cross the border. Back in the U.S. it’s Hwy. 94 to our homes.
