Great. I am seeking participants on 3 forums right now. No one is commited 100% yet though. I did not want to plan alot until I have people commited. Here is a post from another forum, answering a few questions posed.......

I have never been, I just cannot go alone and need to see how many vehicles I can get, atleast 3. The dates I would propose are 12/18-12/31. I know, that is alot of days and probably would need to be shortened on the front end. I want atleast 10 days scheduled though, border to border.

Being a first trip, it would be more exploration and experimentation then anything. I will be looking for leads, guide books and ideas. Certainly some remote beach camping, missions and inland mountain driving are in order. Making it to the end of the peninsula for this first trip is not really important to me. Maybe some day, but I would rather stay loose and have fun.

Obviously this trip will be mostly easy to moderate in trail difficulty, with no equipment mods and no worry about breakage. I certainly have never heard of a "Hardcore" baja trail? On a Baja level, I am open to anything and prefer SOME challenge. I will be taking the 05 X for comfort and reliability, and its stock except for sliders right now.

AS far as driving time, I usually stay loose on that as well. I tend to be a dawn to dusk wheeler, that can never get enough. But the older I get, the more I like to stop at a reasonable hour, before dark. I also like atleast one rest day at a nice location

Hi guys... I havent been at Copper Canyon, but many of the 4x4 mexican community have been there and this area offers beautiful and breathtaking landscapes and views.

Lots of towns and small communities in the mountains, beautiful waterfalls and... well, look at these pics and you will have an idea of what youll find if you go to Copper Canyon area...






Divisadero Hotel...

I am definietly interested but it would have to be before xmas, maybe the begiining of Dec. It looks like you are leaning towards Baja wich is probably easier anyways. The copper canyon is beautiful, I saw it years ago, and at least for now driving all the way down into Mexico proper is not feasable for me. Keep us up to date. I ahve been wanting to do this for some time now.
