Building Houses and Latrines in Baja California Mexico
 

 

 

What you need to bring.

Note: A single large duffel bag is a VERY good idea for all your personal gear.  As your personal gear may be stowed or carried on top of a van or in the back of a pickup, loose pieces such as a sleeping bags, blankets or pillows may get lost or dirty and is hard to keep track of. (Target, Army Surplus or REI have them.)

 A separate book-bag is also good for carrying your personal water supply, snacks and other personal needs.  Ladies, this works good as a purse!


Where to buy on-line

Proof of Citizenship: Driver's License, Copy of Birth Certificate, Passport, or School ID for students.
