Yetibuilt 750

Another run in the books. The Yetibuilt 750 was a long trip. 6 days 5 nights. We covered close to 1000 miles in country with spectating the San Felipe 250 as the finish goal.
The rigs were mostly Jeeps and 1 Tacoma.
Most had never met. Personally I like these runs because at the end there are many new friendships made and this one was no different.
Yeti and Yolo were gracious enough to lend their good names and support for this trip and we are so glad we had the chance to wheel with them again.

Our first day started early just on the other side of Tecate where we crossed into Baja and ran East to the top of the Compadre trail. This is a mellow run through the chaparral up toward the pine forest and down into Ojos Negros.

Whats in your mirror?

We hit the highway and headed to a favorite taco stand in Valle De Trinidad for a well earned lunch.
With our rigs and belly's full we ran the trail up to Mike's Sky Ranch, passed through and took the "Easy" trail into Rancho El Coyote. This is a working cattle ranch complete with small cabins for sleeping and family style dining. We had  dinner and cervezas by the fire pit that night.

Not a bad view from the cabin at Rancho Coyote

Day 2 greeted us with plenty of sunshine and pure stoke from our guests as we loaded up and headed for the Pacific ocean. Winding highway through the San Telmo area down to highway 1 where we regained the dirt trail West to the sea.

Parked for lunch at "Secret Spot"

Our trusty squatchboxx cooler performed flawlessly keeping our food and drinks perfectly chilled

Spooky day on the beach

We ended this day at Cuatro Casas Hostel
Looking forward to the coming day as we would be heading South toward Catavina. Our guests had not yet been that far South


We camped that night in this remote spot. Yeti and I cooked up some Carne asada, we feasted and enjoyed some good campfire time.

We also found some petroglyphs

The following morning we traversed the peninsula at Chapala and made our way to Gonzaga Bay then hopped on the newly paved highway to San Felipe where we would be spectating the San Felipe 250.
The following two days would find us in San Felipe spectating desert racing, relaxing by the water and enjoying ourselves.

Hanging out with Fred Williams

We recently were contacted by Fred Williams and the Dirt Everyday crew. They wanted to take a 2017 Toyota Tacoma and 2 editors of Surfer Magazine to Baja for some surfing and to put the truck through its paces, We were happy to oblige. We had a fun time hanging out with Fred and crew, Lots of Tacos, and trails covered and many laughs with our new friends. Fred really put the truck through some challenges. Sand, dirt roads, some hill climbs. Solid little truck.
Thank you guys for coming to Baja with us!
