A few days ago we received this video from two of our Young Explorers, Justin DeShields and Bryan Morales, who are walking and paddle boarding the entire length of Baja California. Soon after, we got word that the team just finished their exhaustive and daring journey that began almost exactly four months ago! Read more about their zany travels and enjoy this 2:27 minute video of eclectic iphone footage taken along the way.
