Kathleen Thompson - Feb 2020, 2020 BAHS Baja Gypsy San Felipe & La Mision Baja
The BAHS Baja Tour was a true trip of a lifetime!  Let me count the ways......
The pace of the trip was comfortable and timely. The sightseeing was totally encompassing whether that was cave paintings, whale watching, flora, fauna, great food, old missions, yurts, waterfalls or the tip of Cabo (Land’s End). The blues music jams were always different due to varying musicians and venues.  The core musicians were not just professional but exquisitely talented and just plain “dreamy” to have the honor to listen to at every stop.  Locals were always generous with their food donations.  Motel stays were always clean and hospitable.  Last but not least, the tour leaders, Sixx and Rachel Pack were outstanding facilitators.  It is not easy to travel with 20 people for 16 days over 2400 miles.  They always sustained a positive attitude due to, I believe, an extremely passionate drive towards their love of the blues and CURING hunger in Baja!

Thank you Sixx!  This is a great eMagazine and it makes me proud to be a part of the BAHS while living here in La Mision.  It says it all and it's nice to know what things are happening in other parts of the area you're covering. It seems your area is growing and congratulations on that!  The Feedback eMagazine also encourages me to take some road trips just to experience other venues!  Keep up the great work!

DiAnn Matt BAHS Member & 2020 BAHS Baja Gypsy
I live in northern Baja. I loved my tour with “Blues Against Hunger” the entire 16-days trip through the Baja! There was always something of interest and had great stories from Sixx and Rachel, they were outstanding! Friendly, outgoing personalities and incredible knowledge. We saw so much of this peninsula and the beauty, from the Pacific side to the sea of Cortez, the desert views and the Mountain Views. I so enjoyed the music of Sweet Sixx and the BAHS Band when all the jammers got together I so enjoyed it with the tour group. They took care of everything; reservations with places to stay in each city, we had some awesome food, we had 2 comfortable vans. Our drivers and copilots had good communication with each other, knowledge of this tour, professionalism, and resourcefulness. Many friendships were made! Excellent service and I would do it all over again!

From John and Patty Kennedy BAHS Member & 2020 BAHS Baja Gypsy
What an amazing experience these two Gypsy’s had! From the minute we entered the van to the minute we said adios, it was one great day after another. Sixx and Rachel were so knowledgeable from their years of travel in Baja and hearing their stories was a daily highlight and the specific spots they shared with us came to life. The treasured stops in Los Barriles with the kite surfers and San Ignacio with their strawberry jalapeΓ±o jam and so many delicious taco’s! Becoming a family of sorts in our Toyota van and listening to Linda’s daily weather and trip advisor report, gathering for just one more group photo that are now treasures.

From Karl Dring - Multi-instrumentalist - Guest Musician 2017 to current
As a repeat performer at the Blues Against Hunger shows, my admiration for Sixx and Rachel"s seemingly tireless efforts to help the needy is genuine. The music vehicle that is utilized by the Blues Against Hunger series, has proven to be a consistently effective way to create and maintain necessary interest in the cause of feeding the hungry.

From Baja Jenny - 2019 Blues Against Hunger FanToday was so eventful and heartwarming. I spent time working, relaxing, and spending the day with friends. I love this community, thank you Rachel Pack & Sixx Pack for the great birthday donation to Glen Leyden for “hoy si comida” which provides a hot lunch every day to over 150 local children who experience food scarcity. You can support the program tomorrow after The Cancer walk (shout out to San Felipe Las Amigas who will be signing people up from 8-9 tomorrow) from 3-6 at San Felipe Brewing where Miguel, one of the coordinators of “hoy si Comida, will be making fish & chips for your eating pleasure. Great music. Great people. Great causes.

From Carolyn Richardson - 2018 Baja Blues Gypsy
I was one of the 2018 Baja Blues Gypsy touring with the 2018 Baja Blues Against Hunger tour with the band Sweet Sixx, and I most certainly recommend this tour as a great way to discover the Baja peninsula, have great fun doing it, as well as helping to feed the less fortunate along our route.  Rachel and Sixx Pack made sure that everyone in the group gets to see the things they most want to along the way, introduced us to out-of-the-way less traveled parts of the Baja, as well as popular tourist areas of the peninsula.  As tour guides, they are flexible and informative, and certainly a lot of fun to hang out with!  My favorite areas we visited were Mulege because it was so unexpected, coming out of the high desert into an oasis city filled with palm trees and lush foliage, and village charm.  I also thoroughly enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and splash of a color environment at our lodging in Los Barriles and the great eateries we were introduced to, especially Augies in Loreto and Bertha's along the stunning scenic Conception Bay outside of Mulege.   Best omelet ever at Bertha's!  And the music by Sweet Sixx band was the crown jewel on the trip, plus knowing that the local food closets would benefit from their concerts along the way--this made the trip doubly worthwhile.

I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone who enjoys the camaraderie of a group, the tour guides - Sixx and Rachel; who know their stuff and who enjoy a road trip that is flexible and reasonably priced. I know we both really enjoyed our time with Sixx, Rachel, and the group, and now that we have been introduced to some new areas of Baja, I know we'd like to spend more time in some of those places (Mulege and Conception Bay and Loreto come to mind!).

Meeting the group in Ensenada lead by Sixx Pack and Rachel Pack staying at Punta Banda first night. 2nd night El Rosario, then Guerrero Negro, La Paz, Los Barilles, Mulege, Cabo San Jose, Cabo San Lucas, Todos Santos for the day, then headed back from Cabo to Mulege, Guerrero Negro, then on our own to San Quintin, La Bufadora, then home to San Diego. Only one day of rain, the weather was wonderful not hot or too cold. Awesome trip with two great blues bands of the Baja."
