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 wit…

Aussie growers prepare for bumper mango crop

18 September, 2014 9:57AM AEST



By Megan Hendry and Alice Roberts


A Queensland mango grower says late 2014 could see one of the biggest crops in years.



Yeppoon farmer Ian Groves says his trees are in full flower and reports from other areas of the country indicate a good season Australia-wide.



But Mr Groves says that is not necessarily a good thing for producers.




"The mango crop everywhere across Australia looks to be a bumper, so we might not be looking at a lot of money per tray," he said.





"All reports from Darwin, Katherine, the Burdekin and the Mareeba area and Bowen, there's a massive flowering right across the country and I think the weather has been favourable everywhere."




He says harvest timing will be key to determining prices this season.



"It all depends on whether the districts follow production times down the coast," he said.



"If Darwin is finished when Katherine gets going, Katherine finishes when Bowen/Townsville gets going and if we can slot…

MEXICAN MANGO MAFIA : TRISTE COMENTARIO SOBRE LA SITUACION EN CABO SAN LUCAS

Juan Antonio Carbajal Figueroa:


", el cielo huele a humo pues en cada esquina hay una fogata, ciudadanos todo vistiendo una PLAYERA BLANCA como señal de ser ciudadano de paz. Se escucha el murmullo de los centinelas de guardia que comentan con pesar lo sucedido, se respira miedo, pocos duermen. Nunca se había sentido este ambienté tan extremo. La gente que salió a las calles después del huracán, ya no era aquella gente de Cabo de antaño solidaria, ahora esta gente roba y no por hambre. Incomprensible ver que los ladrones conducían camionetas de lujo Mercedes Benz, Raptor, BMW y otro tipo, personas bien vestidas apoderándose de computadoras, pantallas planas, y equipos de sonido. Otros los "jodidos" disputandose a golpes una pantalla de plasma, era su oportunidad de lograr tener algo que ni en sueños lo tendrían. Por fin pude ver ese monstruo de mil cabezas que se forma de ciudadanos transformados a quienes see les escapa la razón. Terrible ver como los padres pasaban a s…
