They just stocked Lone Pine c.g. last Wednesday an they're catchin' 'em! Lot of snow for sure(road to Portal open), unclear as to when they'll open all the campgrounds (must be 50 from Lone Pine to June Lake). Lone Pine Visitor center has a great 2 lage handout of all c.g. in that area.

Great Basin bakery in Bishop not to be missed either
Nice! I will note "Desert View" on our list and glad to hear they are biting . I have never been to Great Basin bakery but it looks good always willing to try new places. Thank You

HI Don- we were out there for two weeks, they were fishing the Owens and at Lone Pine c.g. Not sure if Lone Pine c.g.was legal; Bitterbrush definitely not as per Ranger ("stay out of the creek!). Gonna be a big crowd come last Saturday in April!

Edit: Love Mahogany Smoked Meats in Bishop!!

Ross,
RE: "Love Mahogany Smoked Meats in Bishop" . Oh Yes! I get hungry w/in 20 miles of Bishop. Of course, so does the tow vehicle!

That big crowd weekend is one I always avoid. Usually, we'll go a couple of weeks later, when its not elbow bumping elbow. This year, it'll be in June, on the way back from the ETI rally in Ossoyos.

We heard from the ranger who's part of the fish-stocking detail: they've had trouble finding adequate spots for stocking creeks. The heavy rains brought a lot of silt down, and filled the pools and holes.
The good news is you may find a little more gold than usual, if you bring a pan.

We have some friends who just returned from 2 months in Guayabitos Mexico. They said they met some people from BC with a 21 foot escape. I bet it was the same people.

We have friends that are planning to head to Manzanillo with their trailer (non-Escape, for now that is), probably just short of two years from now for a few months and we are hoping to go along too. They travel down there all the time (though not with a trailer yet), and say they have no worries at all about doing so. They did say when they drive down, they start at the border in the early AM, stick to main highways, and drive all day.

Hi Jim, This area of mexico is absolutely beautiful but I personal would not even consider going there let alone trailing there. Its not worth it, just know you will be driving some of the most dangerous roads in Mexico and I am not talking about pot holes to arrive in a dangerous place in a truck and trailer that worth more than most residence will make in there life time . If you must go stick with Baja Sur much safer.

The Baja is definitely less worry, and I will be doing that too.

I just have read as much as possible about folks who have actually taken an RV south in Mexico. Most mentions I have seen are from folks claim it is a bad idea, yet have nothing to go on other that how they feel. I have yet to read of anyone who actually did it who had troubles. I have read the experiences of those that did do it, and they are mostly positive to a huge degree.

I would really only want to do it with another RV, or even more. It would add to the fun factor too. I have lots of friends who have spent months at a time, over many different years, in Mexico away from the tourist areas. I trust their input, which is all positive. It would be helpful as they are much more fluent in Spanish than me, all I know are the important stuff like cerveza and baño.

Mind you, it is my nature to be trusting and look for the best in people. Yes, this attitude has stung me a couple times, but it has also lead to many, many great experiences.
