Subject: westy to Baja
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
We are taking our first trip to Baja at the end of the month. We have
been researching this but still need answers to a few questions. We
know that propane is available but can anyone confirm that the filling
stations will be able to fill a Westy propane tank. Will we need any
kind of an adaptor?
We plan to buy our insurance at Discover Baja Travel Club in San Diego
because it is supposed to be easy to access off the I5. Is it also easy
to get lost? We will have to get accident and liability as our BC
insurance is no good out of Canada. Any comments?
We hope to get all the way to Cabo spending about four weeks in Baja and
two driving down the coast from Port Angeles and up the I5 through
Seattle. The books we consulted recommended carrying a tow rope and 5
gallons of gas. Is this still a good idea? Where is the best place to
carry gas outside on a Vanagon?
Thanks to Mark Drillock we have confirmed that ATMachines are frequent
and credit cards useable as far as Guerro Negro. Are they also
frequent between Guerro Negro and Cabo?
Many thanks for your input
