We go during the week, just before the race, it's better, cleaner and not too many ding-bats out there! Pre-run Monday to SF, Tuesday to San Quintin, Wednesday back to Santo Tomas, Thursday hang loose in Ensenada, Friday early at Contingency, Sat race, Sun accept award and then we're leaving for Loreto from San Felipe on Monday, on jet skis. It doesn't get much better than that!
This is how you get them to take the first step MAY 30, 2009. Besides, it's like being in Baja (Cal City is), but without the border crossings.
Also keep in mind SEPTEMBER 4-6, 2009 - When around 60,000 OHV'ers will be in town, you know it's going to be big!
