Could you do that route towing an empty trailer for support ?? Trying to get from Ignacio to Juanico without going around. Also is San Juanico to La Purisimo going to be a problem for support?
Yea but your on the course. Are you sayin your ok with that? Some guy on the course with a trailer..... tell this guy to make other plans!
So from the south you can drive in to San Juanico and back out during the race? I going to help a class 11 in sportsman , so we will be late.I believe that beach route and course become same well before san juanico so you will be on course with a trailer. San Juanico to la Purismo is not a problem , road is very wide and well traveled.
you can do it with a trailer but your trailer won't like it. it's just over 100 miles. The washboard is a suspension killer on trailers and will rattle just about everything loose ( an empty trailer bounces like crazy ). i've seen quite a few trailers from guys who brought them in the north road and the trailers never left san juanico. i've towed about ten different trailers from jetskis to 30 foot travel trailers and I always go around. without a trailer we go the salt flats. too many "what ifs" out there with a trailer. "sure things" are good in baja. and its a "sure thing" to go around with a trailer. towing on the north road is a "what if". it only adds about 2 hours ( without a trailer ) and the new way through las barrancas is only 10 miles or so of dirt. the last 20 miles or so of the salt flat route is on the race course and depending on your clearance there are a couple spots that you might not make.
I know that road very well so if you have any other questions let me know. What kind of trailer and how big? and what is the clearance on your truck? there are a couple spots that wouldn't like a low clearance hitch with a long trailer.
Thanks, I don't know the north road so I had to ask. My son and I are doing support south of Ck 7 for a class 11 in sportsman just for fun. We will be late but do not want to cause any problems on course. We are in a F250 with a 16' flatbed I use for my bug. P.S. When and how can I buy your movie?
I talked to the head of th team and he thinks your offer real sounds great. I am just a support grunt and am going to cover the Loreto side and then south to ck 8 and off to points south.. We are trying to work out logistics and he has some support driving around and up to San Jaunico who are interested in your offer. Alaska should chime in here soon. Thanks alot for your responce . We are headed for San Jaunico after the race so maybe get to say hello then.How would you like to be in the movie? Seriously. Going to Baja for fun is what it's all about. I'm class blind. Trophy Truck, Limited Buggy, Class 11 sportsman. It's all the same if you're having fun. Class 11 might even be better cuz you get to see more of BCS in the daylight.
I'm leaving next saturday from central oregon. Will be in BCS by tuesday night. We have a pad in san juanico if you need to place to hang out and take a breather.
Just because you CAN do something doesn't mean you SHOULD. Some people don't get that. There was comment in another post that nails it. Basically drive your truck like you need it to get you home. Cuz you do. Going around doesn't take that much more time. Sometimes down there taking 2 more hours to do something will save you 3 days in the long run. and you are not much support fixing your trailer bearings out on the salt flats.
