Higginbotham Twins Halfway Down Baja Coast on Paddleboards

Email from them this morning:

Hi Lloyd,

Hope you are doing well, Ryan and I are down here in Baja, currently in Bahia Tortugas, just past the half way point. It has been a wild trip so far, but collectively the people of Baja are absolutely the most generous and kind I have been around. I cannot send photos from this computer here, but will be sure to drive up and show you some when we return; and bring the books you loaned us back. By the way, the Baja Atlas, has proven an invaluable tool, without it we would have been up shit creek more than a few times.…
