Here's a walkthrough I wrote up with the original game back in 2008. As I get to the free roam areas myself I'll get more details for that section. Also question if a part is confusing. Using the position of the sun and units of measurement are what we had to do to make do when there were no maps and fancy video capture software.
Make sure you're using one of your Baja career trucks so that the miles add up for the 1000 and 2000 mile achievements. Also make sure that damage is on Cosmetic or Off so that you don't have to keep restarting when your engine breaks and that trees are set on few so you can just drive through forests and deserts with no problems. To check your status go to options and look at Profile Stats, there it shows X out of 5 for each area.
