Viva Baja Van Trip #1 June 29-July 7, 2001
The 'break-in' voyage of the new 4WD van purchased by Amo
Pescar for Viva Baja Tours occured over the July Fourth week. Joining with
the van's pilot, 'David K' was his kids (Chris and Sarah), 'Travelpearl'
(Debra), 'El Camote' (Mike), David Eidell, 'Desert Rat' (Ron), and from
Cielito Lindo to San Felipe: 'Miguelito' (Mike Humfreville's son, Mike).
Two special day trips occured during this week. The first was on
Sunday to Las Pintas when Amo Pescar (Mike), Jeans (Mindy), Michelle and
her 'BHL' David joined us at that petroglyph and fossil grotto.
The other day trip was on Wednesday from L.A. Bay south 40 miles
in search of a lost (proposed) mission site, Santa Maria Magdalena. That
day we had as a guide, Jesus Flores, 80 years old, born in Calmalli, Baja
California. Riding in the van in addition was Paulina, Mike Humfreville,
and Baja historian John Perko.
