HOT. And nice, far beyond the sunrise. Trailer almost onto land: out of street and nearby. Truck got real sandy there for a second;) Found corners of my lot; this is big and green! Walked with Maribel and her uncle, a fisherman who got this plot in the 2008 land lottery (unallotted land is assigned… Continue reading getting to it
We arrive! Not a short drive to La Paz then quick from there to La Ventana. I park on main road’s side by turnoff to my friend Salim’s La Ventana Hostel. We made it! I’m so over driving!!
scuba! good, not breathtaking. cool that it’s craig’s first time. first full day no driving; woohoo! relax.
Craig smartly pushes me to get a spare; nowhere has it. i insist on trying one junkyard; boom: the only tire of our trailer size to be had in town. We roll with an extra wheel. And we make it to Loreto! Cops are pissed at me parking ginormous truck trailer combo sticking into street. They… Continue reading A Loreto
Not 1 but 2 flats! Must have been some big debris or something, both on right side of trailer. Change to spare then realize second leaking, pull ~staple from it. Villa Alberto Andres Alvarado Aramburo, the meth truck stop with as many names as people not looking shady. Although gas station tire repair attempt hang… Continue reading pssst
Was legit dumb to stay up drinking catching u to ~3:30 last night. Fortunately, loading solar onto the roof was easier than anticipated (I’d left 26 panels + microinverters at the house in Bombay Beach I started adverse possession on). Scrap wood holding them onto roof is so ridiculous that it just might work. An… Continue reading Oof
Craig arrives! He was going to fly into Cabo later, but for some stupid reason is such a great friend that he instead flew into San Diego to keep me company / from falling asleep on the drive down. Probably doesn’t know what he’s getting himself into… And immediately something goes wrong. While driving up… Continue reading Copilot!
Picked up toys deals. Jetski with trailer in SLO $1.8k, 33′ toy hauler (meaning the back folds down so you can drive adult toys like ATVs and motorcycles into it) in my kind of rough shape San Diego $5k. Drove all the way here without killing myself! Staying at *Giant* RV park Campland: 600+ spots… Continue reading More Toys
Mon. 9/27/21: Kate left and so did I (her in the morning and me much later afternoon than hoped):( But, at least I’m leaving in overloaded Beverly Hillbillies style!
If it makes sense at 60k, it probably still makes sense at 80k. High ratio of talking about this without doing. Worst case is lose the $ and not have the land. Is this 20x less likely to happen than incremental 20 (x$5k) startup investments? Probably. It’s certainly a different, more exciting failure mode than… Continue reading MX PLAN:
