Beat Up and Grinning

Beat Up and Grinning

The Adventure Begins: San Diego, BF Goodrich Pits, and El Blanco Diamante

We left Denver on Thursday and made our way to San Diego, taking care to get plenty of nutrition along the way. Double-double and fries, animal style, with a chocolate shake? Check.

More Prepping and Packing

Final prep and pack continues here at the Project Baja camp. We inventoried everything we’re taking, packed up everything except refrigerated food, and put 1137 in the trailer last Saturday evening.
