Camp Baja Beaches – (Winter) Introduction to Baja Mexico Adventure

Monday, December 6, 2021, 7:30 AM

(After SoCal Four Wheel Camper Rally) This seven-day/seven-night Tour begins in Calexico, California and ends in Tecate, Mexico. The tour will follow a fairly easy route (some off-roading) through exceptionally scenic landscapes. You will visit San Felipe, Bahia San Luis Gonzaga, and Bahia de los Angeles on the Sea of Cortez side. The tour then crosses the peninsula to Guerrero Negro, Catavina, Punta Banda, and Ensenada. Camping during this tour is mostly on remote beaches. Camping fees are included in the tour. Each tour participant will need to secure and pay for Mexican Vehicle Insurance through Baja Bound and secure a Mexican Tourist Card. Off-Road Safety Academy walks you through the entire process. If you’ve never crossed an international border while overlanding, this is the tour for you. We make it easy and teach you all the important particulars of international border crossings. Cost: $1300 per vehicle. Tour Terms and Conditions – READ CAREFULLY Prior to Sign-Up • Cancellation Policy. FULL refunds (TicketLeap credit card fees and tour fee) for ALL tours are only possible up to 30-days AFTER ticket purchase. Thirty-one days after ticket purchase and up to 30-days prior to the first day of the tour, only the tour fee can be refunded. No refunds are possible 29-days prior to the first day of the tour. • Vehicle Requirements. All vehicles must have 4-Lo gearing capability, reasonable ground clearance, seat belts for all passengers, plus front and rear frame-mounted recovery points. A trailer hitch in the rear can serve as a frame-mounted recovery point. You must have a full-size spare tire – no “donut” spares allowed. On this tour, you must NOT use a hitch-mounted tow ball, cargo "basket," spare tire mount, or bicycle rack on the rear of your truck. You must not have anything attached to your rear truck trailer hitch. Also: DO NOT COME WITH CAMPER RISERS ON FOUR CORNERS. • Vehicle Self-Assessment. It is the sole responsibility of each participant to make sure his or her vehicle is in TOP mechanical condition. “Top condition” means mechanically sound to the manufacturer’s specification, plus, no fluid leaks, dangling wires/cables, bad tires, or repetitive squeaks while moving. Be courteous to others on the tour – do not come with a vehicle that is not in TOP condition. If you are in doubt that your vehicle is not in top condition, then it probably isn’t. • Remote Backcountry Vehicle Breakdowns. With appropriate considerations for the entire group, Off-Road Safety Academy may assist with the repair and/or towing of a broken-down vehicle. However, professional towing of a disabled vehicle may be needed. Most towing insurance is not applicable when off-road (AAA, roadside assistance, etc.). If you breakdown in the backcountry, it may be necessary to organize special off-road towing of your vehicle. Often times professional off-road specific towing is very expensive and requires the use of a credit card to begin extraction. These expenses will be the sole responsibility of the tour participant whose vehicle is disabled. Off-Road Safety Academy will be able to communicate with these services in the backcountry. • Self-Reliance. Each outing is an overlanding-style tour. This means camping at different locations each night and each vehicle being completely self-reliant (food, water, fuel, vehicle in superb working order, sleeping accommodations, human waste, etc.). If you do not have a camper toilet, you will need to bring a PETT-style toilet and disposable bags. We must haul out our trash and solid body waste. • Extra Fuel. Participants will need at least 3-5 gallons of extra fuel (unless you have a 400-mile fuel cell/tank). This fuel must be stored in compliant and legal containers and stored outside the vehicle. (Extra fuel is not needed for the Baja Tour.) • Environmental Sensitivity. Please use biodegradable dish/hand cleaning liquids while in the backcountry (Dr. Bonners or Ms. Meyers). At most camping sites you must not
