Heading down to San Felipe in a few weeks -- two of us -- 990 Adv & 950 SE -- experienced baja riders but prefer to avoid the deep deep sand (my riding partner hates it). Question 1 -- Traditionally, we travel to Bay of LA and then the off-road route to San Francisquito and/or El Arco -- then San Ignacio, etc... We normally turn right at the T-intersection (left = San Francisquito and right = La Lagunita) just west of El Progreso and suffer through a few miles of deep sand. I've heard whispers of an alternate route that avoids this sand but still gets us to La Lagunita. Can someone explain the best route ? I have the E32 map, btw. Do I want to turn left and then head as far El Progreso or...? Details appreciated as there are a few option on the map. Question 2 -- I have never explored the Pacific side north of Guerro Negro and have heard good things about the areas near Santa Rosalita. Can anyone provide commentary about the two routes I've been complating? Option 1 - At Highway One just outside Chapala, head west/south to where the main road meets the coastal road just north of Bahia Blanco -- then travel south all the way to Guerro Negro. Option 2 - same as above except head back east toward Bay of LA when we hit Santa Rosalita or a little south of there and then travel east via Rosarito & San Ignacito. Is the off-road route between Santa Rosalita and Rinconada nasty or super sandy? Is the the route between Rosarito and San Ignacito a better option? I've read BigDog's RR's and have his GPX file(s)...but any others are appreciated. Thanks! THANKS!!
