During my morning walk I spotted this in the Safeway parking lot. I know that some Safeway’s allow overnight parking for travelers, during my travels I have occasionally used a Walmart or Safeway too.
When I got home I got to thinking about that schoolbus at Safeway and decided to see if there really is a www . schoolbustobaja.com. By golly, there is! Soon I was reading about two young guys from Long Island, New York who decided to hit the road, see the west and surf in Baja.
On their site I read where they were having trouble finding places where they could post updates to their website so I decided to drive back to Safeway to see if they were still there. They weren’t! Returning home I decided to check Denny’s, Headlands Coffee House and some of the other breakfast possibilities. Nada. When I got to Denny’s I decided to check a surfing spot north of town.
No vehicles in the parking lot. As I turned around to return home I spotted the Schoolbustobaja! It was stuck in the sand beside the Haul Road! I could also see a park ranger’s vehicle and the ranger writing a ticket! Oh boy!
I walked out, introduced myself, told Anthony and Brian I had read their website and offered the use of my wi-fi and DSL when they finish getting their ticket and tow out.
And now, as I speak, they are updating their page and sharing stories of their travels. Interesting guys. What an adventure!
