A Little Video I Put Together Doing The Solo Mexico Thing

Nothing special, mainly recorded it for my two year old daughter (hence all the Elmo appearances).

It got to be board shorts and t-shirt conditions by the time I got down around Mag Bay. But in the stretch in the video I had a bit of warm but primarily cold conditions and even a day of rain. Really changed around Mag Bay though. Within a couple of hundred miles it was substantially more tropical.

Down here in mainland Mexico the idea of using my heavy weather gear">foul weather gear is a joke. I washed it, wrapped it in plastic bags, and stuffed it under a berth.

What a great video and what a great gift for your daughter (when she is older)! It looks like you have mastered the GoPro!

Yep, worm steering. I just have an X5 that works fine. A bit of friction to move the wheel, but on the plus side it's about as easy to move in glassy water as it is in a storm. I want to put a wind vane on because self steering is just so absolutely essential (to me anyway) and I'd rather go with something that's a little less black-boxy, or at least when conditions deteriorate and it gets pumping.

Regarding all you guys who can't watch a video: it's friggin youtube!

I read this forum on an iPhone and I can't read it either. YouTube says the owner of the video
