    My Off road Baja Pictures Album


    Hope you all enjoy them. This trip was the ablosute best Vacation I have even been on! Unfortunately the album is not in any order but most are labeled with a brief description. More will be posted when I get them from other that were on the trip!

    Let me know what you think!

    Everybody that wants to can staple what ever they want to the ceiling/walls to mark their place. I even saw a sticker from Bettencourts on the wall! I have a picture for proof!

    This was an awesome trial into the Dry Lake, that as you see was lined with Catuses.. I was told by our guide that last year one of the cars rolled in a bed of field of cactus and was pretty injured. They look like they would hurt !

    This was the last place my buggie was driven by me. I was told the bearings in the transmision went. Not my fault just bad timing! Thankgod, I was worried I did something to break it and was going to be paying for it! Phew....

    An off road trail that is pretty tight for these cars, but we still moved rather fast down it!

    The dust you see ahead is from the car in front of us "Car 3" If you drive too close you get blinded by the sand..

    A Picture from our break after blasting down the dry lake trying to get the cars to hit 90 mph. I only saw 87. The top speed of these were 90, the race engines they put in to race the Baja 500 & 1000 can hit top speeds of 120.

    Here is a picture of an Independant off roader at Mike Sky Ranch. This car flipped over right behind our group and rolled it 4 times over a ledge. Driver/Passenger were fine, buggie was pretty mangled! Not sure if it was drivable after? One of our group members was talking to the driver the night before, seems this was his first trip out after repairing it from his last flipping adventure!

    Yeah Tim thats the Web Site www.wideopenbaja.com

    I am hopefully planning on going again around the same time with a few friends plus a few of the guys from this trip I was on. We had a great crew all got along very well and enjoyed drinking together at night! I have been in contact with them a few times since the trip already, sharing pictures and seriously talking about doing this together again. You want in! Save up a lot! I am starting now!

    Thats incredible. I never realized you could do such a thing

    I went to the site, but didn't see much pricing info.

    How much does it run?

    If I told you most people they would say hell NO. This is a once in a life time trip, I am going to try to do it a few times because it was so increadible!

    Do you really want to know????? Be sure... Put it this way, I could have paid for 1/2 a new bike.. But even now looking back I am very glad I did it, so cool and sooooo much fun.... Well worth the $$.

    Priceing is not given on the site because it is pricey but considering what we did and all the expences that are covered it all works out to be very reasonable. Where can you rent a race car and told to go out and hammer the piss out of it and have fun, if you flip over stay calm, we will come flip you back over fix the car if needed and get you going again!!!!

    If I can get 10 people for the next trip in Sept/Oct date we get a nice discount. I can get further details for those interested or hook you up with my Sales rep.

    I have a DVD video as well if anyone wants to see it, but it does not even come close to showing you what it is really like!

    Hey Mike,

    I love the Pics. Looked like great fun. I'm starting ta think you have too much freaking fun. I would for sure be interested in a trip like that. The closest I came to something like that is when I took My CJ7 for a trip to the west coast and back. I did a lot of four wheelin in places like Arches Nat'l Pk, Canyon Lands in Utah. and ridin high in the Rockies in Silverton Colorado.

    Give me a heads up on the next trip.

    Wayne
