Baja07 Cruise, Leg to Loreto Fest begins tomorrow
Cruisin to Loreto Fest
April 25th, Phoenix
To say we’re anxious is down playing the mood a bit. The crew for the 2nd leg of the Baja07 cruise is making the final preparations after crew member Steve Quant arrived in Phx mid-day today (Wed). The 2nd leg crew will be Steve, Frankie and Lowell (me). We’ve decided to depart at O-Dark-Thirty tomorrow (meaning when ever we can shake our heads loose from the pillows) and drive directly to the boat in San Carlos. The drive is around 8 hours, you can see the basic route in the inset on the chart below. We cross the border to Mexico at Nogalas and head due south to San Carlos.
We received word from Bill & Dave late today and they have arrived in San Carlos this afternoon, a day earlier than they expected. Dave’s wife Ellen got the call and they indicated they were having problems with their cell phone keeping them from sending Updates. Hopefully they’ve been saving updates. If so, I will get them posted so we all can check-out their leg of the cruise.
Our next leg of the cruise will take us to Loreto Fest that starts May 3rd. We have 7 or 8 days to cross to Baja and work our way south to Puerto Escondido. The flick to the left zooms you into the large protected Puerto Escondido harbor where Loreto Fest is held. Our itinerary is wide open. We hope to cross to Baja on Friday (weather permitting) and will either go to Santa Rosalia or Mulege. Mulege was hit by bad floods since we were last there and we hope our favorite destination is still in tact. I’m sure we will spend some time there even if we first stop in Santa Rosalia. We will try to get an Update out before loosing cell service as we cross to Baja Friday to report on our drive south and the Gato Loco hand-off. Until the next Update….
The Gato Loco Crew.
