    I saw that you had liked a status on their FB page and wondered how you knew them. Very cool!

    I’m in Mulegé now. I missed Al by mere hours. :(

    I didn’t come home empty handed either. :lol3

    Hey Zak,
    We were in San Juanico catching the race. Saw that little VW come through as the locals were finally slowing down the party. The whole town, 300 people were camped out and partying for 3 days. Good times. My wife has now caught the Baja bug. That can only be a good thing for me!

    next Dr. visit on the 11th, next week. Hope I get some good news, (although I do not expect to hear anything right away, more tests) I wanna go BAJA NOW!,,it is frikken cold in my shop even with a fire raging in the stove,,won't be long before pipes freeze and all that hated winter stuff. Looked at road cams today,,some snow and ice on Siskyou pass. In another week or two it may be coastal only,,
    The old gent I bought the shop from told me one time, "when it gets to be 103 in the shop, you close up and get the heck out!",:hair:knary, I added to that when I told him,,"yes, and likewise when the dog's water freezes!":vardy

    I read a news article that said the fishermen were protesting in San Felipe, and had blocked roads.
    this was due to the arrest of a fish union leader, and today I read that they have released him, but trouble still in the area.

    The story I got is they've fished out the area to the point of no return. They are being watched by satellite. It's a difficult situation, no doubt.

    The Narcos are dealing in Totoaba swim bladders to the Asians. The giant fish is endangered and the catch is illegal, if they are caught with the fish on board they go to jail, so the bandits remove the swim bladders and toss the fish to the briny deep.
    Sea Shepherd group has two ships in the area and awaiting a third ship to join in. Coast guard and marine fisheries patrol boats are active 24/7. The union guy that the protests were about was implicated in the illegal fishing, but may be falsely accused, hence the protests.
    Also, as you mention, new regs with regards to nets and hours open to fishing.
    As long as they don't muck up the shrimp harvesting I'm happy,,,Mmmm, camerones!
