* Please have your Mexican insurance already purchased/in hand, and Passports/Visas to return to USA.
*This is going to be a fun run - one where the Wives (on night #1) get to watch their Husbands prepare a BBQ Feast along the waterfront in the historic Rio Hardy - (We will have a chance to shop for meats in Mexicali at the giant grocery store at the center of town after we eat lunch). The following two days will provide a chance for pure 4WD canyon off-roading in some of the most desolate wilderness - ripe with both flora and fauna from the Baja region. Once the run is over, drivers will have an option to stay again at the Rio Hardy vacation house, or return to the USA.
What kind of terrain are you guys planning on running? I have been around different places while watching the Baja races and I have never heard of "Rio Hardy" where exactly is it?
