Fuel Run to Loreto, Mexico

Charlie, Marji, John and I flew to Baja California to see the grey whales 15-17 February. Our pilot was Charlie Jackson, Sun Labs’ Webmaster. Our Cessna 182 Skylane II was one of four private planes on the trip from the Shoreline Flying Club. On 16 February, while the rest of the group went to see the cave paintings or scuba diving, we went on a fuel run from Mulege to Loreto. We filled up for ourselves plus extra for the smaller Flying Club planes.

On the map below, Loreto is at the bottom right: the next big town south
of Mulege on Baja’s Sea of Cortez.
