POSSIBLE BAJA 250 RACE PROBLEMS AND
NEW BOOK ABOUT "POPPA NEUTRINO"
Feb. 10, 2007, Title Company Bookstore, Catalina Meders, San Felipe, Baja California, Mexico town report:
Hola everyone from San Felipe where springtime seems just about here.
Today's weather at the north end of Mexico's Sea of Cortez is a little cloudy, but there is no wind and it is very nice on the balcony.
The temperature at San Felipe right now is 71 degrees with humidity at 61 percent. Last night's low temperature was 51 degrees at my house, which is in town.
We are really being spoiled here this last couple of weeks, considering what is going on in the north.
San Felipe is looking at the Carnaval holiday, which comes up at the end of next week and lasts for five days.
But now there is a a spreading rumor in town that the Baja 250 race may not take place, or that it may be drastically different this year.
SCORE International still has the race posted for March 9-11, 2007, but there are stories flying around everywhere about the ejido officials saying that they are going to close off their land to the racers.
This is because of an ongoing land dispute between the ejido and a land developer. Nobody seems to know for sure, but I will report it as I find out.
For those of you who remember "Poppa Neutrino" also known as David Pearlman, his book is about to come out. The title of the book is "The Happiest Man In The World" and it is the story of Poppa's life written by author Alec Wilkinson.
Poppa Neutrino is the one who built a raft at San Felipe last year for a voyage down the Sea of Cortez that didn't happen.
At last report, he was in or around the Bay Area looking for a place to moor his latest raft and still planning to take it to China.
From what I understand, a huge amount of work remains to be done on it. At any rate, here at the Title Company Bookstore we hope to have a few double-signed copies. Until next time, vaya con Dios from the bookstore by the bay.
