Viva Baja III Feb. 23, 2002

On a Saturday afternoon in Oceanside, California, 105 + amigos met at El Charrito Restaurant to celebrate their love for Baja California. Many have posted travel stories on the Amigos de Baja discussion board, some have Baja web sites, several were members of 'Desert Explorers' (Neal's army). Quite a few are authors of Baja books, and some have a business based in Baja or Baja travel. I am very happy to host this great get-together. The following photos are from Baja Mur, Norm and Bedman, muchas gracias amigos! tu amigo, David Kier (
