Great plan Trice! What are you going to do for training for this one? It is going to be hot in Baja in September. I recommend that you get your hands on some Suero Electrolite, the coconut flavor isn't bad. It costs about 22.50 pesos/litre and will replace the electrolites you lose through perspiration. It tastes a helluva lot better than f'ing GatorAde and is probably better for you. There has got to be some desert med website like there is for high altitude med. I look forward to hearing your tales! Great Adventure!
