Epic Adventure Starts Here

About You


I started going down to Ensenada in the mid 50’s with my Dad to fish the half day boats. Later on, in high school, me and my buddies would go to a surf break we called 3M’s which was about 6 or so miles north of Ensenada. After high school I continued exploring deeper into the peninsula, surfing and fishing on the Pacific and Cortez sides.

Fast forward to December of 2003 when I sold my business and retired. The sale closed on a Wednesday at noon and immediately myself and a friend headed south. My friend, Dennis, a devout Catholic, was a docent at the San Antonio Mission. He wanted to explore the missions in Baja and Baja Sur, so we spent the next 3 weeks traversing the peninsula and visiting as many as we could.

Later in 2004 myself and a couple of buddies started a Prosthetic and Orthotic clinic in La Paz sponsored by the La Balandra Rotary Club. Over the first few trips we brought down donated machinery and supplies. We have a full on workshop where we cast/measure patients for artificial limbs and orthopedic braces. Our gatekeeper for the clinic, Dr. Alejandro Aguirre Chavez, screens all of the patients we see at the clinic. When we first started, Alejandro asked us for a 5 year commitment, but here we are 18 years later and we’re still going strong. On average, we hold 2 clinics per year of 2 weeks duration, 1 in the spring and 1 in the fall.

Since we were committed to going down twice a year my wife and I bought a small beach lot in Bahía Asunción where we can spend time both before and after our clinics. We parked our old 5th wheel trailer and love to spend the time near shore fishing and fishing from the beach, exploring for Indian artifacts and fossils, and enjoying the great food at many of the restaurants in town. If you’re ever in our little pueblo when we’re there, please stop by and say “hola!”
