Mexico, Here I Come!

I'm off on a trip with the Escapees RV group to San Felipe in Baja, Mexico. All of us (46 rigs and 87 people) met up the first night at the mall in El Centro, CA. A caravan of 46 rigs requires a lot of planning, and David and Cheryl, our fearless leaders, were on top of it!

The next morning we were up bright and early to take off.

We entered Mexico south of El Centro in Mexicali.

We waited along the wall on the Mexico side until everyone got through the border.

Then had a police escort to go through Mexicali. Not because it was dangerous, but just to keep everyone together.

We even got to go through red lights and stop signs!

At the south edge of town, we passed by the Escapees group that went before us, who were waiting for our police escort to take them north to the border.

On this trip, I'm riding along in my friend Rosemary's rig, so that we can split the costs. My rig is in storage. This way I get to take lots off pictures of the unique landscape of Baja. There are beautiful mountains -

And then some unique barren desert.

About 125 miles south of the border, we entered San Felipe, our home for the next 10 days.

All lined up to enter the RV Park.

We are at Victor's RV Park, right on the water, and a beautiful beach!

Rosemary and I at the Malecon, for the classic photo op!

Lots more to come!


  1. Looking forward to your visit, we've been coming here long before the 2-lane gravel road was paved. WE'll be back at the beach house a few days after your group heads back - save us some shrimp!

  2. Tell Chris abd Belle hello. Hope to do this next year.

  3. Lots of pictures please. Sounds like a whole lot of good times.


I love comments!
