    Third Thursday of the month. Safety meeting. Since this was my last safety meeting, like heck if I was going to talk about ladders, hearing protection, or pesticide safety. So, I did a little talk about my cavorting around on the Baja peninsula and compiled images and stories from my last 16 trips. While the linked PDF lacks my narrative, I think you will get the idea. I've included the videos below. My trips don't involve cantinas, casitas, cabanas, white sandy beaches, or fruity drinks with little umbrellas.

    Enjoy.

    Jon -

    Awesome job! I had seen little bits and pieces of this stuff before, but the presentation and the videos pulled it all together. I am starting to understand the "pull of the Baja."

    I bet this gave your co-workers an idea of what your retirement will look like. Congratulations on the last safety meeting of your life!

    16 trips to the same land and no doubt each one is a new adventure! Thanks for sharing one of them with me. Keep up the adventures and congratulations on your retirement!
