RE: Entering Baja California 10-Year Tip Required Now?

No it is not a sanctury,the two States are some what exempt from customs duty it was done to help the econmic state of the citizens of the two most neglected territories, Baja Califirnia Norte and Baja California Sur, and tourism was a good economy, until the narcos came along and scared the turistas not just the Gringos, French, Germans, Dutch, in the early 90's the border crossing at San Ysidro wold have anywhere from 8,000 to 12,000 French, Germans, Duch crossing in to Mexico monthly for day trips to Tihuana, that is with out counting those arriving by plane directlly from Europe to take guided tours down Baja to San Jose del Cabo and leaving also by plane from Los Cabos. The area North of the Mexico and the U.S.A. border is the Alta Califirnia today known as the State of California USA. since the two territories where isolated by water from the mainland the turistas could not escape but have to return, only way out was through the Sate of Sonora and thus the most corrupt customs agency is now operated as the Aduana de Sonoyta. If FMM's and TIP's (person visa and vehicle permit) are requiered to traverse Baja it is a law that has been in the books for a long time, the changing political attitude is now begining to shape conditions at the borders of both countries, the best we can do is adapt and follow the laws of both countries. navegator

RE: Entering Baja California 10-Year Tip Required Now?

The way around Tijuana is via Tecate, it is on State highway 94, you can go from san Diego or from Interstate 8, from Tecate you go South to the rest of Baja, paperwork can be obtained at the garita "booth" in Tecate, from there to Ensenada is a nice drive. navegator

RE: Beware of the 2017 Trek of the Americas - Adventuretrek

If this is the same individual or company that is advertising this 2017 trip, then by all means make sure that those that are not aware are told of the shabby enterprise they are about to get into, from what you mention if the guy collected the bribes to give to the customs and police, he was fleecing all of you for trip money. Travelling in a caravan gives the tourist safety in numbers and NO border agent is going to request a bribe, should there be a complaint there are to many witnesses against them, same with the police there are to many that know the truth of the incident. navegator

RE: Beware of the 2017 Trek of the Americas - Adventuretrek

Been travelling, living, working and driving on and off in Mexico for more than 55 YEARS never paid a bribe, so let me translate for you what you see or hear: Guys with machine guns or AK 47's that ask for money in any form = NARCOS Guys with M16's or AK 47's, = "Police or Military", not all are honest it all depends. Guys in grey uniforms with M 16's = Marines, yes Mexican Marines! The "Mexican Marines" have my utmost respect since they are the only ones that have not sold themselves to the dark force. Yes there is corruption in Mexico as there is in any country, there is corruption in the United States as well from some Government individuals, the only difference is that the Police forces in the US are paid decent salaries, some of the US politicians on the other hand are bigger crooks than the crooks them selves. We need to look in our own house for termites before we get all scandalized about the neighbors house having termites. navegator

RE: Crossing Back Into the USA at Otay/Tijuana Area

At the Western port of entry San Ysidro there are 4 distinct and separate areas, left side is the general lanes for just the tourist visas, that take any where from two and a half hours to four hours depending on the agents in the booths, if you get the rookies it takes for ever. Then come the ready lanes that take the enhanced border crossing cards, those lanes start along the right hand or West direction next to the Rio Tia Juana and are narrow with very sharp and a tight left hand turn just before the border, a 40 foot RV will scrape the concrete barriers, the wait times vary from a half hour to four hours depending on the hour and traffic. Then come the sentry lanes and they are only for the vehicles that have been pre screened, there again the access is from the river, not recommended the CBP agents get really annoyed at you plus the lanes are really narrow. Last but not least is the passenger bus lane, access is by the sentry lane right hand lane, this lane can take up to four hours until you reach the CBP booth, then you might end in secondary for another hour plus. If you have paperwork that needs to be turned in there are no offices at all on the lanes going North to san Diego or anywhere to park or stop, the Banjersito and Immigration offices are on the Mexican entry side and no vehicle access from the lanes entering the USA or for that matter pedestrian access. Otay Mesa is a commercial entry and they handle all entries as such, Sentry lanes are on the right hand side and all others to the left, the Banjersito office is on Avenida Segunda, you need to navigate the streets if returning paper work, a lot of big rig traffic and hard to get to it the Banjersito and Immigration office is on a dead end street with lots of parked vehicles, turning a big 5th will be a challenge plus there is no where to park on the lanes leading to the border crossing and there is a wire fence at the end of the Segunda AV, wait times for this port of entry are normally a fast two hours and a half hours to four and a half plus, I avoid this entrance at all. From your post I see that you are familiar with the Tecate entrance, use that crossing and when you get to the 94 "T" instead of going right go left on 94, there are some campgrounds on 94, if you want to go to San Diego keep going there is a Border Patrol inspection station, after the station a couple of miles there is a road just before a bridge on the left, this road is Otay Lakes Road make the left turn, this road takes you in to Chula Vista stay on it DO NOT get on the toll road, continue and you will see the first freeway, the 805 keep going until you get to the I-5 and go North, there is a nice RV park at the marina, if you want to go there get off on "J" street turn left under the freeway keep going the street makes a gentle right turn, at the end of the marina parking lot make a left turn, at the end of the street go right and mid way on the block on the left is the entrance to the RV park. navegator

RE: Mexico ULSD roll-out has started

Fuel prices went down one Mexican centavo on Friday so the new pricing is working. I am being sarcastic! that comes out to $0.000526 US currency one Mexican cent divided by 19 since one Dollar is about 19 Pesos more or less. They opened a BP "British Petroleum" down the road and the gas price is higher than the Pemex a few blocks away, and the lines to get fuel from the BP station remind me of the last fuel shortage in the US, I guess the novelty will pass we will see what the future brings. Saludos y muy buenas noches a todos.-----(greetings and good night to all) navegator

RE: Why do Class C's always leak in the front upper bunk area?

There is another way to check for leaks on the over hang, go to one of the corners underneath and push up on the bottom, if the panel flexes it is a sign that there is rot from leaks, or they placed a couple of drain holes. Also check the sides if you notice any waves or bulging that is also water damage, another area is where the cab meets the house part inside the vertical panel 90 degrees to the frame, any sponginess and also in the back area where the roof meets the sides, they may have painted inside but rot is spongy wood. navegator

RE: Vented Gas Cap?

Gas caps have to be air tight for emissions, after market caps are not air tight. Go to a Ford dealer and purchase a cap wit a retainer that attaches to one of the screws next to the filler tube you will never leave a cap behind again. It is interesting that the check engine light did not turn on, I had that problem with the toad and an after market cap with a keyed lock, it would turn the light on and would not start, the cap was not air tight. navegator
