    I put in for March 16th through April 16th off of work. I can adjust as necessary depending on what Mark and Ken and whomever work out for final dates. Being the boss has it's privileges. As long as this real estate deal goes through this month, I'll be able to throw a ton of cash at a depreciating asset (the 200)and be loaded with gear and ready to go.

    No wife, no kids, full-time Air Force for 16 years, no rent/mortgage, real estate side gig... Let just say I have some expendable income. :)

    I put in for March 17th thru April 1st off, just waiting on it to be approved. I know that timeline may not work for the trip if so I'll just head east and do some exploring etc... I'm going to move forward with passports, Mexican car insurance etc just incase that timeline gets me in the band:)

    You can do Mexico car insurance in 10 minutes before you depart... I wouldn't spend the money until your sure you're going. I use BajaBound.com each year.

    Hey @Mark Mehalic, I see that you are in AZ, do you go to the Copper State Cruiser meetings in Tucson or Phoenix?
    I'm just up the road in Casa Grande. would love to meet up, talk cruisers and Baja.

    Hey Tex, I don't go to those meetings. I didn't know they met in Tucson. You have a link for the Tucson group? Yes I'd love to meet up and plan some trips. I go out almost every weekend.

    Whoops didn't realize it was posted to the private section. Sent you sidemail if you want to access directly.

    This trip is looking more and more like a reality for me, currently holding dates of March 29 - April 7 (10 days total however they fall). I could shift a bit but trying to hit both weekends to minimize PTO.

    Doing the Baja 1000 route would be very cool. Once I know for sure if I'm in, I'll propose a route. I don't want to mandate anything, just a suggestion. As I said, this trip is for everyone to plan, I'm just the lunatic to bring it up the idea of driving through Baja.

    Doing a leg would be cool but much of the beauty of Baja is found on the beaches and bays of both coasts
