I'm thinking of taking the bus down to mexico for a winter and I'm wondering if anyone has been there/done that. I'm thinking of the baja for love of the ocean. What kinds of pros and cons am I looking at? Fuel availability? I run diesel and wvo so i'm wondering about how a wvo hunt might go. Diesel would be fine too with prices as they are. I have dogs and a pretty secure non valuable looking ride but any thoughts on safety would be appreciated. Has anyone ever worked a salt-water still for fresh water. Mexico is calling anyone got insights?
I'll try to avoid sand at all costs but, if it occurs then i'll try and hold it at like 50 so i dont bog. Been down that road before. I fact i really loved that old scout that was consumed by the sand and ocean, maybe I'll go visit the grave some day. I'm also putting a mega heavy duty winch on the bus. Now that i think about it i think Ill put winch mounts on the front and the back. Thanks for the link Jimmy those guys filled me in on a few aspects. I'm still looking for actual bus testimonials. Also of interest would be actual stopping places that are good and what about water.
I'm surprised Jason didn't say to bring a dozer along after his experience.
I'm planning on at least one night towards the end of March on a beach in Oceano CA with the van during my California trip. I am going to have some boards for parking it on and my bottle jack and a small shovel. But I'm not too worried about getting stuck there cause of the amount of off roaders that will be there at some point. Those guys are always willing to help out and show what their trucks can do.
