Alabama Hills in Lone Pine, California.

Every year we make a broad travel goal for ourselves. In 2007, we bought a T@B trailer to test out camping with a baby (Ava). In 2008 and 2009, we bought the Airstream and were taking long extended trips in it (while pregnant with Mila). In 2010, we spent more time in the Airstream than out & traveled cross country to Florida Keys for the first time. In 2011, we explored the west (while pregnant with Luka). In 2012, we went back to the south east (as a family of 5). In 2013, we traveled up to western Canada. In 2014, we explored the north east. In 2015, we traveled to Alaska. In 2016, we bought the truck camper to spend the year in Baja, mainland Mexico and Atlantic Canada. And now in 2017, with 49 US states, all Canadian provinces, Yukon territory & most of Mexico under our belts, we have decided to visit all of our old favorite spots in the West while purposely finding new ones.

Joshua Tree National Park, April 2017.

**Hi there! So I’ve been thinking. My new plan is to blog our current locations and sprinkle in the old international traveling we did throughout Mexico and Canada in 2016 since that never got done. So here we go….**

We just got back from another stint in Baja which took us all the way down to the town of Loreto. We got to spend time with old friends, make new friends, eat cheap tacos, drink even cheaper beers and the kids got to do something they didn’t do last year…. touch gray whales. It was a trip to remember for sure and now that cant complain that the adult touched baby whales and they didn’t. Haha.

Puerto San Carlos, Baja California Sur, Mexico.

(No, you are NOT seeing things. The blog is back baby! We are over a year behind but that doesn’t matter. Memories are memories. We are catching up on the blog and the YouTube vlog and everything else too. Thanks for still following along!)

After the craaaazy drive out of Puerto Agua Verde, we needed to settle into a spot and take a break from dirt roads for the week, plus there is something called a J-O-B that needs to done Monday thru Friday.

Puerto Agua Verde, Baja California Sur, Mexico.

While camped in Loreto, we met a family from Northern California that told us about this dirt road that will take us to a slice of paradise in Baja that most people do not visit. The dirt road is treacherous, they said. The mountains will be like if Sedona met the sea, they said. To get to the road to Puerto Agua Verde, turn left when you see a mule tied to a cactus, they said.

Loreto, Baja California Sur, Mexico.

First rule of driving in Baja is don’t drive at night. The reason behind that rule is not banditos, but livestock which might be taking a nap on the warm asphalt. But livestock doesn’t only need to be minded in the dark because there is danger even during the day. As we were leaving Bahia de Concepcion heading south towards Loreto, we had to gently slam on our brakes to avoid colliding with these wandering goats.

Mulege, Baja California Sur, Mexico.

The next stop on the Baja Express is to the town of Mulege. Instead of camping near town, we chose to be outside of town a bit at a campground surrounded by orange groves called Ray’s RV Park and Resort. And look who it is again, Tim and Kerri in Big Blue. This photo makes me giggle. We all ditched our Airstreams for a bit for a Baja adventure. I’m sure we will all be back in our Airsteams sometime in the future, but for now we are enjoying our time in this orange grove in the desert.

Asuncion and Abreojos, Baja California Sur, Mexico.

Took a week off of work so we could do some off-the-grid exploring. First stop was a little fishing village called Bahia Asuncion on the Pacific 120 miles off of Mexico Highway 1. We did not know what to expect from the roads out there especially when it immediately turned into a short stretch of gravel. Luckily most of the remaining road was paved. Found a rugged and treacherous coastline at the end when we arrived at dusk.
