Things are coming together

Things are coming together. I was beginning to get frustrated because with things have not moving along like I wanted, not anyones fault, just want it faster, but I think we have our grove on now.

Yesterday was the first day we actually went to the beach and hung out, only for about 45 minutes but we were able to go swimming in the warm waters and let Cai run nuts on the beach. The beach was small pebbles until the edge of the break, where it became a dark sand. The water was as clear as a swimming pool.

We also walked to the grocery store and stocked up, not an easy walk carry groceries for about 2.5 miles. I didn’t want to do that again, so today we took the bicycle shop. We got a little turned around and walk another 5 miles. I now this because my lovely bride owns a pedometer, so I know I actually walked 9963 steps.

In any case, we’ll have the bikes back tomorrow with four inflated tires and good running condition. When we get our wheels, we’ll be all over the place. Explore, explore, explore.

On the business side of things, we’re looking solid. We’ve made 40+ business contacts in Loreto now and have got a few good leads from other people we’ve connected with via email.

Tonight we’re sending out our Loreto introduction letter (see below) and start arranging our meetings, stayed tuned the next week is going to be busy. This is the method we started in Peñasco and it works great.


My name is John Pack and my wife Rachel and I are currently in Loreto and would like to meet you personally to introduce ourselves. We’re the publisher’s of a printed monthly guide to Baja California and Sonora.

We’ve been growing our audience for the last 3 years and with the June edition we've expanded to include Baja California Sur.

The guide is called Mexico Living (http://www.mexicolivingguide.com) and we have a monthly readership of 25-30 thousand. We are a full color printed guide and sell for $20 pesos at retailers in Rosarito Beach, Ensenada, San Felipe, Los Algodones, Baja California and Puerto Peñasco and San Carlos in Sonora.

We’re working on our August edition and the featured destination is Loreto Baja California Sur. We want to make sure to include you in the Loreto section of Mexico Living. Ads start as little as $50 pesos, so no Loreto business should be left out.

Rachel and I will give you a FREE business listing in the August edition, just for taking 5 minutes to say hello. You can see all of our past issues on our blog, or visit our website.
