We drove down to the Cabo area a couple weeks ago; scored on the east cape. Super strict covid policies everywhere down there; temp check, sanitizers, masks, limited capacity, etc.

A friend had a wedding down there a week or two ago. We wanted to go, and might have, but it wasn't worth it after talking to our IVF provider.

One friend and his wife tested negative at home, attended, and tested positive on the way home. Their kid at home tested positive. It appears that they brought it with them, but I'm not totally sure. At least one other friend that attended tested positive when they came home, but not sure about his family. The only people with masks at the wedding were the staff.

I wonder how many others would've tested positive by now if they all tested.

We were on the way to Scorpion but got a call that it just closed; completely locked down due to covid. Ended up scoring a swell on the east cape for a week, but camped/hoteled/stayed at friend's houses along the way and back; Guerrero Negro, Mulege, Todos, Loreto, etc.

3,000 miles and 60 hours roundtrip from home.o_O

I had never gone. Super fun.

I don't fish but that whole Mulege - Loreto area is super cool and beatiful. We ate and shopped in La Paz but that was about it.

When the east cape points are lit up with swell, :waving:

yes for sure. Was there for that Feb. swell and it was caravans of people in motorhomes and sprinter vans pulling in. Talked to a younger nice dude and told him stories of the old days. He was like damn I was born in the wrong era....

Yeah. Im glad i at least got a taste of some of the classic spots before they were completely torched. San juanico 20- 25 years ago before they paved the road was pretty epic as a teenage frother. My family still has a place there but I rarely bother. I might stop in for a few days on my way down the coast just to fish some of my old spots in the area but surfing the points just bums me out.
