We asked some of the recipients about what was going on with the donations that we delivered on behalf of the guys and everyone who gave their money, time and gifts. Here is the first update from the field. You may remember FFHM down in Negro Guerrero, where we made about 30% of our donations and left […]
Team ElDorado Rack’s ’em Up!!!
Team Manresa’s Master Fabricator, Lou Urbina, decide it was time to help out Team El Dorado by constructing a hand built, custom Macho Monster Rack to carry gear and supplies.

Nice Rack Team Westside!
Keith Millar of Cupertino burned a full day day of his precious weekend torching together a super-strong surf rack for Team Westside. Keith a surfer, windsurfer and expert welder with a killer home shop, knew the racks had to be Baja-tough. He fashioned the uprights out of 3-inch-wide steel plate, and molded the metal to […]
The Beast gets new tires!
The Beast has received lots of loving care and many needed upgrades, including a new radiator, newer transmission, major tuneups, etc. It’s ready to tackle Baja and get there with plenty of life left.

Two rigs are filled to the roofs, Team Manresa & Team El Dorado. With all the donations we’ve received I wondered if we could even fit everything in. Bob’s house had tons of goodies…. Mostly clothing, but we also have bicycles, arts and craft and school supplies, roller blades, toys, stuffed animals, surfboards and even a windsurf board […]

We appreciate it and the Morales family of […]
Mike has drawn third blood. The deal was done today as Mike crossed the bay area and slapped down 17 crisp Benjamins and claimed his steed. This 1990, 3/4 ton, Silverado package equip’d machine is a sweet ride…. If team Manresa is a 1 and Team AMZ is a 10, Mike’s black and silver apaloosa […]
