2449 miles with my #stellerdad
My #stellerdad and I left on December 30th to drive from Oklahoma City to San Jose Del Cabo It should take about 5 days. #roadtrip #baja #adventure
The car's packed, Cowboy is loaded up and we're ready to go! Dad's so patient with the selfies.
Leaving Oklahoma City looked liked this. You know you have a good Dad when there's no complaining 45 min in and you want to stop and take pictures of ice.
"Dad, we gotta go back. I need a picture of the gas station and I want to look inside"
Driving into Santa Fe, NM.
We stop for football & photos. Flagstaff AZ
We spent New Year's Eve on the road. I assured Dad In-N-Out was the place to go. Avondale AZ.
I love this landscape on HWY 8 before the Tecate border.
We crossed the border in Tecate. We were told there would be no lines, it's true - no lines. But, no one from customs showed up for work and we had to wait an hour or so. Oh well.

Ensenada Mexico. Our first view of the Pacific Ocean
Our third day of driving was an endless two lane road with an extraordinary landscape. It's not recommended to drive on the peninsula after dark so the 1649 miles of the peninsula takes a few days.
You kind of need to be prepared for this stretch of HWY 1. If you don't have a full take filling up will look like this. Usually they have gas but not always.
Outside of San Quintin, time for Margaritas.
A great breakfast in Loreto and our first views of The Sea of Cortez. The cover is taken along this section
First morning in Cabo
5 days and I would do it again in a heart beat. There aren't many times as an adult that you get to spend 5 days with your Dad. It was a great trip and we had an incredible time. Love you Dad
