Ride Request Northward - Hello, I'm a gardener/baker/yoga teacher in Pescadero, warming up to a journey North come the end of the month. I'm envisioning myself in sunny San Diego, but I would be thrilled for any assistance getting at least to Baja Norte where I can catch a cheaper bus. I will gladly share gas money, snacks, poems, ideas, pleasant silence, and driving assistance if you would like. Sometime between the 23rd and the 28th would be ideal, but I am wicked flexible. Thanks! - Jacob Wartell, jwartell [- at -] coa.edu

California Via Baja Side Trips - Time to think about heading North. Leaving mid-March for Santa Cruz, with stops along the way. Maybe San Pedro Matir, Punta Chivato, comondu (the wine right?) are among the possibilities. Play music, and laugh our way to the border, crossing in Tecate. Hopefully some blooms in the hills of Baja Norte. Share gas, room for two (max), gas share 150-200 depending on side trips. Lots of references, been over this route 25 times. Give me a holler. - Tall Man, gypszcaravan [- at -] gmail.com, Cabo Pulmo-East Cape
