They made it to Mexico!

 They’re there!

Leg 4 – La Paz, Mexico

We made it! Left Yuma early and had a spectacular flight down. It’s been a few years and I have forgotten how truly beautiful this flight down the Baja coastline is. To my pilot friends, this need to be on your bucket list!

We also now have a mid-air new best friend. Pretty funny actually, I heard him calling to San Felipe, he was southbound and as I was as well, I called my position report. We went on the special air-air frequency and he was behind me but catching up (Cessna 182 retractable). We chatted over the next hour as he slowly caught up and we learned he was originally from Ontario but now living in California. He is passionate about flying in the Baja and has been down a 100 times (flies down doctors). He did a close fly by for a photo shoot and we promised to communicate via email and perhaps meet up on the next trip. All in all a fantastic trip, the weather gods smiled on us, and SUZ performed well.

Adios amigos,Now it’s time for a well earned Margarita. We are here until the 27th and our friends Tom & Kathy arrive this Friday.Steve & Missy
