    The CrowsWing Teardrop Finally Lands in Baja!

    Yes they are! We found them just from dumb luck. I did post on r/bajacalifornia, here, facebook and anywhere else I could think that might have people that would know who might be able to help. By being a little nosy we dumbed onto Bastidas before I could get any helpful replies. Someone did...

    The CrowsWing Teardrop Finally Lands in Baja!

    Thanks for reading and watching. The turnaround was amazing. I've never had any business in the states drop everything they were doing to help me. Ì always get told the "our regular customers were here first, so you'll have to wait until we catch up" Which sounds reasonable in one sense but...

    The CrowsWing Teardrop Finally Lands in Baja!

    Thank you. Not sure that I understand your question though. If you mean, did I feel safe at a place but then something made me feel unsafe at that place? No, I felt safe enough to sleep at night and never left a camp spot due to an insecure feeling. If you mean, was I just be-bopping down...

    South to Baja Part 7 Big Trouble Outside Santa Rosalia Nearly everyone has asked about the scene in our opening credits of the Baja series where I'm removing the axle from the teardrop. Here's the video with the answer! Have you ever had a vehicle malfunction miles from nowhere? We've had a...

    South to Baja Part 6 Thieves in the Night and the Secret Enclave What's your reaction when someone steals something from your beach campsite overnight? You shrug it off and go find a more remote beach, possibly a beach with an enclave of Canadians. Canadians that consider the beach "theirs"...

    The CrowsWing Teardrop Finally Lands in Baja!

    Follow along on Part 5 of our trip to Baja Mexico. We take a wrong turn in the small town of Mulege that results in a 37 point turn-around. Then we find a campsite on the windy side of Bahia de Concepcion that sends us packing and looking for a calmer site to camp. With Wrong Turns, Death...

    The CrowsWing Teardrop Finally Lands in Baja!

    Part 3 of our Baja adventure. We spent a week at Bahia de Los Angeles. We found a quiet beach south of town (not near LaGringa and all the van lifers that were there). We only saw a few locals come in and use the beach, and there was only one other person camping on the beach at all. Fishing...

    Part 2 of our Baja trip on video. We spent several days on a rocky beach that we had all to ourselves, well that's if you don't count the pelicans, ravens, vultures, and coyotes Sent from my SM-G986U1 using Tapatalk

    What inspired you to indulge in expedition travel?

    Expedition Travel? I've never been on an actual expedition, however we do love to travel and we do love extended travel into the wilder areas. Back in the late 80's (think 1988) my then girlfriend and I got into a photography class at the college we attended. She was from Pennsylvania and I...

    The CrowsWing Teardrop Finally Lands in Baja!

    Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for the likes and comment. The whole trip was so much fun. The building of the couch was as much a puzzle as anything, making stone comfortable can be a challenge. Glad I could help (it's not much but a little of something is better than nothing!) You're welcome...

    The CrowsWing Teardrop Finally Lands in Baja!

    When we did our very first drawings of the design it actually incorporated a fancy swing arm air bag set up like the old AT Chasers used. Along the way we eventually discussed trailer usage, maintenance and ease of acquiring parts for repairs. The standard leaf and axle setup is so simple. We...

    The CrowsWing Teardrop Finally Lands in Baja!

    Saturday January 13th 2024 The drive up to San Felipe was uneventful. We stopped in town for gas once more. The hub temps were still good to the touch. We drove right on up to the beach we camped on when we first arrived. It looked a bit different this time, like there had been a good rain...

    The CrowsWing Teardrop Finally Lands in Baja!

    Friday January 12th 2024 We packed up camp and with the windows down we slowly rolled out of camp. Beth walked alongside, listening for any weird noises. I leaned my head out of the window doing the same. Nothing, that's good sounds to hear. We stopped at the end of the washboarded two track...

    The CrowsWing Teardrop Finally Lands in Baja!

    WE HAVE AN AXLE! Thursday January 11th 2024 There were clouds doing there best to prettify the volcano even more. I sat and watched them slowly dissipate. Then it was more back into town. As we passed the landfill/dump/burn pit we noticed what looked to be hundreds of vultures...

    SEEING YOUR CAMPER ON JACK STANDS IN THE DESERT IS WEIRD Wednesday January 10th 2024 At sunrise we were out of bed. It was all of 29 degrees and we dressed for the occasion. The wind wasn't blowing so at least we could fix coffee. Then we emptied our boxes of gear out of the truck...
