Baja 2016/2017

Oct. 17

Woke up early and become prepared for the day of the hub repair.  Wayne took Don to breakfast where Don hoped to make a connection with Wifi. The Wifi sign was just a sign and there was no wifi. We have a program on our phone which has updated wind forecasts, a quite useful tool. No internet means no updates. The mechanic had all the parts and did both wheel bearings.  After hearing several stories of people needing to go back to the states for the parts for their wheels,  we again are quite thankful. Cost of the repair, $120.00. When they returned with the wheels, Wayne had all the tools needed to put the trailer back together.  By late morning we were ready to head back to our palapa and get serious about leaving in the morning. We spend the rest of the day packing our gear and checking out the maps. There is no water sources till we get to Bahia Gonzaga which means our boats will need to carry a lot of water, which Don gets in town.  After realizing that high tide is at 3 AM we decide against an early morning start. Sometimes it is easier just to go with the flow. Plus the wind seems to be in a rather calm period.

 The palapa was a great staging area.
