Thanks for the offer.

Without jacking the thread,

The well known surf fishing guide and instructor Bill Varney lives close to Dillon Reservoir.

He has moved there and was looking for someone with power auger.

I am going there first and then to Strawberry Reservoir in Utah.

Rosa Who?

Yep Rosa dropped 25 INCHES of rain on PUERTOCITOS on Monday 1 October. WE were there. We left Johhnys Shell Station in El Cajon at 5 am, crossed Mexicali and got to San Felipe to light drissle. Skipped breakfast hoping to beat Rosa into makoville. The road work 15 km BEFORE Puertocitos were in 12 inches of rain and passable in a car. From Puertocitos south we were moving fallen rocks from the highway in a pouring rain. Many rocks and a couple or hours later we came down the hill to Huerfinito. Bridge was washed out and water was flowing fast through that arroyo. Time to return to Puertocitos still in pouring rain. Coming back was no better then going. We arrived in Puertocitos for the SECOND time that day just as dark was falling. We parked in front of a building which we found out the next day was the local store. The rain was almost over and we bedded down for the night.

The next morning broke clear and nice, no moore rain for the trip. Rosa had headed north into Arizona. For us she was history. We sat Tuesday out in front of the store, which WAS OPEN and full stocked. The store owner also owned the building next door which we had camped out on its patio and he said that was ok. Later in the day a few vechicles started showing up. A couple of locals who had done some work for me in makoville showed up.

To Be Continued.

They were going towards San Felipe but had done work the day before in Puertocitos. We talked it over again and split the party two going home and two going to try for makoville. Wednesday morning two Dodge Rams went mountain climbing again. We passed a family on Tres Hermanas fixing a flat and heading towards Puerticitos. They had drivern in from Guerro Negro after the storm passed. They left highway one at Lake Chapala and drove to the 5 on our side.

So we knew we would make makoville in a few hours. But it was OLD BAJA, between 3 and 5 vechicles had made it through. IT WAS tough, from Huerfinito to makoville is 20 miles. Bridges were out and the arroyos were full of fast drying sand and basketball to ice chest size boulders. At different times both Rams had one tire at least 18 inches in the AIR. Makobob had one tire off the side of a 50 foot washout. Kind of a pucker point but we made it through. 10 feet later we were back on the highway and the last 10 miles into makoville were clear. Finally we were appy campers when we stopped into the restaurant and Clementina made us breakfast. After eating it was time to meet up with the rest of the group who came in a day early and got here BEFORE the storm.

ROAD, Highway 1 is good thru Guerro Negro. Road from 1 to makoville is the best I've seen it. One hour from makoville to Chapala YESTERDAY. Day before two vechicles, one car and one van did it in under two hours, no problems.

Hope this helps.

Come down the pacific side it took us 10 hours today, plus an hour at the border. NO PROBLEMS if Sergio does not do damage.

One hour for Sentri lane?


xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Per Travel Baja website, last updated 10/4:

Mex 1 is in extremely rough condition with pot holes and worn roads from about 10 miles south of El Rosario through Cataviña and down to about 10 miles south of Lake Chapala. They are slowly working on patching some stretches of the road, but expect very rough road conditions for almost 200 kilometers.

Mex 1 is in bad condition with large potholes for about 10 miles around Santa Rosalillita.
