Epic trip Ron. The Sur and the Sea of Cortez are on our list. Mainland Mexico? Not so much.

if you are the Federales, where are your badges!

no guts no glory. I used to go there a lot while stationed in San Diego. we were always taught the "buddy system" .....but then ,,,we were just drunk sailors. I got my truck stuck on the beach,,,a guy came up with a tow truck and said "$100" and I will pull you out,,,as I was huffing from trying to dig out. I yelled no ____ing way man. his answer......okay,,,,$10....swear to god.

Yeah, if you're going to drive your vehicle on the beach it's nice if at least one of your buddies carries a shovel, tow strap and knows how to attach it. This guy put a little too much faith in the wide foot print of his dual wheels to keep him out of trouble on the sand.

Hey, if I'd been around I wouldn't have charged you anything. OK, maybe a Pacifico or two and maybe a fish taco...just how deep were you stuck?

let air out of tires on sand and carry lots of extras,,,,team up

mid 80s ,,, pulled over at a gas station, praying the gas truck would come the next day. we made it as far as Mulege. the landscapes I saw down there are seared in my mind, like going back in time . Jurasac Park stuff. expecting a Teradactal flying. 20 foot tall cactus. my old pic won't upload. but anyway, I was buried pretty good. lots of fun! fish tacos and Corona for about $4 a case.

I agree if going on the sand you need to let your tires down to 15psi. 10psi if you are brave but makes it easy to pop the tire off the rim. I don't care how many or what kind of tires on the vehicle, you will be dug in otherwise.

Out on old Cape Cod they let you drive on the sands, all the way to Race Point, but not before they make you reduce the air in all 4 tires, to I forget what, and, if you don't bring along a shovel and a tow rope you don't get permission until you got them. It is a fun drive for a 4WD, a big mistake for anything else.

Left the Burro at the campground. Great fun grinding to Race Point with my old '92 Explorer. A couple-three months later my transmission died. R.I.P.
