Do you know the way to San José del Cabo?

A Facebook nomadic friend posted about her preparations for wintering in Mexico. Among other things, she showed a Benchmark atlas of Baja California. 

Whoa. I have Benchmark atlases for all the states in the western US, but I didn’t know they offered one for Baja. It would’ve been very handy on my past trips there.

I rushed to Benchmark’s site and discovered, ah-ha, the Baja atlas is brand new. First Edition. So I ordered it.

I don’t know when I’ll be able to go to Baja again, but I’ll be better prepared when I do. Vaya con mapas.


  1. I've read that the US is opening the border with Mexico on November 8th. Maybe. :)

    1. It was open at Los Algodones last winter. And I know a couple of groups that spent the whole season in Baja.
