Mine is still coming along slowly but surely!

The hotel situation frustrates me....bajavoyager has all the normal rooms locked up. The one I have for Loreto and La Paz are stupid expensive for baja

Got signed up. Using my road course number 67.

Got a room in BOLA and used Juan Carlos at bajavoyager for the bugambilias hotel in Loreto and LaPaz....the "fee" was more than I was happy about but oh well...those 2 rooms last year in total ran $126 when using hotels.com and this year Bajavoyager charged $194 8-(

Anyway, excited about it.

Emailed Mag7 about fuel and spares support unless some of you guys have truck where I could kick you some gas money and carry a spare wheel/tire.

On this thread can you guys elaborate on how many spares generally you brought...meaning spare coil, starter, etc? I will not have a chase vehicle other than my bronco buddies and they made it clear they are running to win their class so won't be hanging around to help if I need it and in years past the super duty chase has been bursting at the seams.

I'll try to carry 2 front & 2 rear spare tiers, wheels a few Subie parts and gear for 7 in my short bed truck, so we'll be packed to the gills ourselves.

I have a 1992 diesel 4x4 Ford 350 Centurion but it's an IDI not a powerstroke so it's very analog and frankly I don't even trust my wife driving it as a chase..you have to use mechanical empathy.....I am toying with the idea of doing a one week rental from National at the TJ airport for $600 and using it as a chase vehicle.....

Ps MAG7 never got back to me. I will try them again in December once they get past the B1K

Postscript -- Mag7 just answered another email (11/3/17) and said they will likely have support/fuel pricing out in early 2018 so that is great news.

Guys, I'm interested in running a traditional Myers Manx white band on my hood just like they did back in the day. Anyone have thoughts on font/size/provider/etc?
