GREAT STORY OUT OF BAJA: These surfers were lost for days and folks thought the worst. 

BUT THEY WERE FOUND ALIVE & Taken care of by locals.

MISSING: Dane Kennedy, Travis Gault and Lonny Davidson. They were heading south on a surfing trip to the Seven Sisters area in Baja California, Mexico and left on Sunday 9-6-2015 at 5AM. They were due to be back yesterday - Thursday the 10th. The family has not seen or heard from them. Last known whereabouts for the 3 young men was leaving San Quintin on Sunday at 1:00PM headed south to Punta Cuchillo and Seven Sisters. The truck they were driving is a gray Tacoma with a camper shell. Members of the family are headed down to retrace their reported path and help in the search. If you have any information about them, please call 619-993-5518 or 619-519-5445. The US consulate and Mexican police have been notified...

Dane, Travis and Lonnie have been found near El Rosario. 

They had almost made it back to HWY 1 and have been stuck in the mud for the past two days.

They were taken in and wined and dined by a Mexican family which aided them in getting the truck out.

Sounds like this took place in a very rural area with no resources. 

Haven't actually talked to them but received a call from a Spanish-speaking only gentlemen 30 minutes ago.

As I don't speak Spanish I could only give Jennifer Davidson, who does, the number to call back not able to say for sure but that guys were OK and to call this gentleman. 

The Good Samaritan is not part of the family, but I was told that through a series of no telephone communication style rural Mexico shouting from hill to hill as loud as they could to the next guy along the way until they found someone with a phone.

He somehow found my number only knowing that people in San Diego were looking for some overdue surfers. 

Had to be someone found me via online angle. (yeah social media)

Jennifer says the Boys will be heading back tomorrow so they should be in cellular range as they head back up so we can get the entire saga. 

Bob, Dave and Jeff are spending the night back on the beach and were preparing to trace their path out, stopping to talk to everyone along the way if necessary, I am assuming. So they are behind them by several hours.

Don't know if they are going to be able to communicate or any other pertinent info. Have coordinated with State Department who will notify Mexican authorities, but guaranteed they will be stopped six or seven times on the way home...

Please share and again, with all my heart, THANK YOU to the throngs involved in getting the word out and especially to the on the ground groups, like Talk Baja, as well as countless people using their contacts of influence in all of this.

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. 

It has considerable shelf life of a week after it is ripe making it exportable. 

It is also one of the most expensive kinds of mango and is grown mainly in Kokan region of western India.

 It is in season April through May and the fruit wei…

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…
