Banana Post 36 hour baja run
Started in Tecate ran though the Pine Forest down over to Ojos. Then we shot on the 3 to the Mikes Sky Ranch Turn off. Went up to Mike then out the back way towards Colonet(Which the first 15 miles took 3 hours it was so beat up). Then Ran Colonet along the cliffs up to Erendia.

Relaxed and Hung out at Cayote Cals for the night. 298 Miles Day 1

Sunday morning we took our time and shot out of there by 9am.

We ran the coast up and decide to go for the impossible route to Santo Tomas along the coast...

So we started going and snuck by those weird TVIND CULT people with their compound and started heading North. Thats where it all go hairy. Having to move rocks to get by and watching your tires so you don't slip into a 10' deep trench. (Video Min 2.55 has the crazy trenches we had to watch) once we go through we were at the Mine which basically is the end of the line...

Spent about 90 minutes trying to figure how the F we get out of here... But we hill climbed and launched the drone to scout spots for us. Move more rocks and then ran the Mountain spines with complete drop offs and 1 inch on each side and eased our way down the mountain into Santo Tomas. Definitely the hardest trip yet.

If you have 5 min Watch the Video its pretty cool. Total was about 500 Miles

Cool video - great use of the drone - thanks for sharing!

Those washouts along the trail were ugly and deep!

I need a cigarette, and I don't smoke.

Level 5 on the route finding, nice job.

The drone really is a legit rescue tool,

So good! Do you have a Lowrance file for this run that you could share?

Some of those ruts look like canyons!

I can definitely share some parts with you no problem. If you have lead Nav it's easier for me to shoot over the routes

Great run for sure, enjoyed the video. Will look to join you on ne of these soon!

Kudos for the trail up to Sto Thomas. That's not normally traveled, usually from Coyote Cal's you just shoot out on the graded road!

Thanks! I don't have LeadNav but if you have the GPX files I can convert them over to the USR files required of Lowrance.
