    Hey everyone,

    I am planning a trip from Denver to Topolobampo then taking a ferry to La Paz. From their we are planning to head to Cabo then heading back to north across the Peninsula.

    I will be on a DR350 my buddy will be on a WR250R. We have about 7 days to get from the southern tip back to the states.

    Looming to stay off roads when possible.

    Would really appreciate any files that are available. I have a Garmin 60csx. NO idea how to use it...

    I'm doing the same thing in reverse in March 2017... Mexicali to Cabo. 3 lads. Have acquired some files already, would be willing to trade/ share. i'm using Garmin Montana/ GPX files which would work for you as well. When are you going?

    I also plan on buying the E32 map. This is supposed to be very useful in Baja... it's not cheap, but knowing what is ahead is kinda handy on these adventures...

    Hi,

    We rode north to south from San Felipe to Cabo last January on side by sides. Our track is attached. May help you out.

    I'll bet you guys had an awesome trip!!
    I see from your track that you spent a bit of time on pavement, as well as riding through some towns/cities. No problems with the law? Do you have some kind of license plates on your side by sides?
    PS, I'm the guy that steered you clear of tackling the No Wimps trail.......

    We just had our British Columbia ATV plates. Only meant for off-road in BC. We did buy Mexican liability insurance for road travel. No issues with any police anywhere. Went thru a couple of Military checks as well with no issues.

    Thanks... I guess any official plate will do... I finally got my atv plate this summer for my 2-up quad, but I don't think I'd attempt a trip of this magnitude on it. I had a friend here in Yuma that tried to talk me into doing a quad trip from Yuma to Guerrero Negro and do some fishing, but I never took him up on the offer. 1050 miles on a quad is quite a feat... a side by side would be a little more comfortable I think.
    I've done pretty much all of your trip on a dirt bike (a few times)... awesome country, people and food. (Beer and tequila too !!)

    Thx for the link for pics
