BAJA RACERS TO THE RESCUE !!! : LOGISTICS COMPANY ORGANIZES RELIEF EFFORTS












   









Fellow Baja Racers and enthusiasts NOW IS THE TIME to come to the aid of our brothers and sisters who desperately need our help after the devastating Category 3 Hurricane Odile pounded the Peninsula last Sunday.




Tavo Vildosola, along with Cameron Steele, Tim Sanchez, Ryan Thomas, Oscar Ramos and many others are putting together a plan, in conjunction with the Mexican Red Cross, that will allow for the distribution of much needed supplies to the hardest hit regions in Baja.







Vildosola’s Mexicali based Mexicana Logistics has committed to utilizing a portion of his fleet of semi trucks to transport relief items to a centrally located staging location on the peninsula as early as this Friday afternoon. Oscar Ramos has arranged for police/military escorts for our caravans.








Plans for how and where relief items will be distributed from the staging location are still being formulated and current road conditions will dictate some of this. However, an elite group of experienced racers/chasers with capable vehicles will be used to help move relief items from the staging location to remote/difficult to reach locations throughout the affected areas on the peninsula.




Your donation of any of the following items will be greatly appreciated and responsibly distributed to those in need.
Please remember any quantity helps.

THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER MANGOES IN THE WORLD ....

While "Flavor" is very subjective, and each country that grows mangoes is very nationalistic, these are the mango varieties that are the most sought after around the world because of sweetnesss (Brix) and demand.

The Chaunsa has a Brix rating in the 22 degree level which is unheard of!
Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.
Perhaps it is time for a GLOBAL taste test ???

Alphonso (mango)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia








Alphonso (हापुस Haapoos in Marathi, હાફુસ in Gujarati, ಆಪೂಸ್ Aapoos in Kannada) is a mango cultivar that is considered by many[who?] to be one of the best in terms of sweetness, richness and flavor.

Mangoes date back 65 million years according to research ...

Experts at the Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeobotany (BSIP) here have traced the origin of mango to the hills of Meghalaya, India from a 65 million year-old fossil of a mango leaf. 





The earlier fossil records of mango (Mangifera indica) from the Northeast and elsewhere were 25 to 30 million years old. The 'carbonized leaf fossil' from Damalgiri area of Meghalaya hills, believed to be a mango tree from the peninsular India, was found by Dr R. C. Mehrotra, senior scientist, BSIP and his colleagues. 




After careful analysis of the fossil of the mango leaf and leaves of modern plants, the BISP scientist found many of the fossil leaf characters to be similar to mangifera.


An extensive study of the anatomy and morphology of several modern-day species of the genus mangifera with the fossil samples had reinforced the concept that its centre of origin is Northeast India, from where it spread into neighbouring areas, says Dr. Mehrotra. 




The genus is believed to have disseminated into neighb…
