RE: Rocky Point/Sonoita

don't you mean from Hwy 8 to Hwy 2? Looking at the map, entering into Mexico you are already on Hwy 8. You turn right from Hwy 8 then head south onto Hwy 2. Then you bear left onto the Hwy Sonoyta - Puerto Penasco. It seems you can take Benito Jauarez off of Hwy 8, which then parallels Hwy (2/8). Then comes to a tee allowing you to make a right turn onto Hwy Sonoyta - Puerto Penasco. Or Benito Jauarez turn right onto Avenida 16 de Septiembre which will connect to Hwy Sonoyta - Puerto Penasco. nope. look at it again. the post and the map.

RE: Camping recommendations for Rocky Point?

Speaking of construction, what sort of issues are caused by all that heavy equipment hauling those huge loads of stone out to the reef? They can't be driving through town. I hope they're not destroying the new coast road with all that traffic. Naah. The intersection at the Reef turn off has been made into a 3 way stop with a flagman usually out there. As you exit the Reef road they have made a semi truck road that continues out away from the beach area and is used soley for the trucks. They don't use the beach access road. Gotta watch out at the entrance to the Reef cause the trucks don't stop. They got them loaded so heavy with rock that they have to get a run up the hill and now they have a seperate gate that they use where the dry camping area used to be next to the Wrecked at the Reef restaurant.

RE: Rocky Point/Sonoita

As for the damage to the rv's. As someone else said. Tight turns . Hwy 8 as it passes through Sonoyta already gets tight with, traffic, schools parking. It got worse with the construction. Jesus and Carlos. Our local paint and fiberglass guys seem fairly happy with the damaged rv's. The are easily able to fix them. Working on them already.

RE: Rocky Point/Sonoita

Here's another one. I forgot to post this. Benito Juarez , that would be Hwy 8 just as you come into Puerto Penasco/Rocky has been all torn up for awhile now. Just as you pass the Sams Club you'll get diverted. The road you get diverted to will take you to Playa Bonita and the Reef ok, but the surface is lousy and ya got alot of traffic , The Playa del Oro folks gotta do some maneuvering to get to their park. The work around is the fairly new road to the beach area. As you come into Rocky Point, at the first traffic circle you come to you'll see sign posts that say "Sandy Beach" Cholla/Choya El Golfo de St Clarita". Turn right there. Follow that road over the railroad tracks to the stop sign. Turn left at the stop sign and it takes you to the traffic circle with the Pemex station and from there its an easy drive to the beach area for Bonita and the Reef. Del Oro folks can get to their park just takes a little more maneuvering but easier than Benito Juarez at the Sams Club, Drive carefully.

Rocky Point/Sonoita

Road Hazard. Coming from Lukeville crossing. (or if it applies elsewhere) Those of you traveling to Rocky Point in the near future. In the town of Sonoita just over the Border on the Mexican side. As you make the right turn from Hwy 2 onto Hwy 8 , which is Benemerito de Las Americas heading towards Rocky Point. There is road construction and they are diverting traffic. For cars, it would appear that it is not a problem but for rv's it must be fairly tight cause here at the Reef we've had 2 rv's arrive with damage to the side of their rv. (One just yesterday and they were traveling in the daytime.) The alternate route, is 16 de Septiembre which many of you are aware of. It parallels Hwy 8 and takes you around the congested area. The surface of that road is crappy but not congested. Take a look at map quest. 16 de Septiembre is easy to find. Juuuuuuuust a suggestion.

RE: Camping recommendations for Rocky Point?

There's only about 3 rv parks left. The Reef, Playa Del Oro and Playa Bonita. All very nice. There is one dry camp area left ,Concha Del Mar, next to the Playa Bonita. We're currently at the Reef. About 30 rv's here. Pretty empty. Some of the web sites for those parks aren't working. Plenty of info on the web about the places. Give it a try

RE: border customs wine limit

Bill, At the Lukeville crossing, no ones ever inspected for wine or alcohol. Doesn't mean they can't or won't but we've never had a problem with amounts. They do have an agriculture inspection that is sometmes working but even then they never asked. I have no idea what the per person wine limit might be. Also, in Rocky Point they have a new Sams Club. I checked the wine selection out the other day and its not too bad and the prices are fairly reasonable.

RE: Rocky Point

Thanks. See you Monday PM. Assume there is no need for a reservation. If that changes please give me a heads up. Naah plenty of spots left. There's only about 30 rv's in the park. It'll hold a couple of hundred.

RE: What toad is small enough to carry on the back of a Class A?

We're here at the Quartzsite rv show in Az. I've seen two smart cars being carried by lifts on the back of 40 ft Class A rv's with tag axles. There is a vendor here selling one. I'll try and take a picture of one when I see it again. The smart car is being carried sideways much like you see motorcycles being carried. The OP does not have a 40' motorhome with a tag axle. Even if he did, just because you can, doesn't mean you should. Can you image the engineer when they find out that somebody cantilevers an extra ton off the back of their DOT approved RV design. :S No......go on . Say it isn't so.

RE: Rocky Point

Hey bill, Yeah the insurance varies . We use a company in town. Yes thatvroute is still good. If you miss it. Don't sweat it jus continue on until you hit the road construction on the main drag . They are doing new paving. Make right turn and continue on to the Pemex station at the traffic circle. Follow the road along the high rise hotels until it turns to dirt and look for the reef on the left Rates are 35 a night for beach front and 23 for non beach. Cheaper by the month

Rocky Point

Got here at the Reef RV park two days ago. Park has about 30 or so rv's in it. Weather is great. In case anyone's interested, the dry camping area at Sandy Beach, next to the Reef.................is closed. We saw alot of rv's over at the other dry camping area next to the Playa Bonita. The Wrecked at the Reef restaurant is supposed to be open this weekend. The park is open. The construction of the Marina continues. Looks like they're taking a break today and having some type of ceremony on th abit, but we don't think its that bad. If anyone's interested, I'll post some photos.

RE: KVH Sat dish won't connect w/Direct TV Reciever

Snomas, They haven't supported those for some time now. You've been using yours on borrowed time. I had the KVH L3. Did the same as yours. Worked great for about 6 years then quit locking on the signal. KVH advised that it probably had what they called a "brown out" and need software upgrade> it would have been about $150.00 with no guarantee that it would solve the problem and they added that they no longer made my unit. That was about 3 yearrs ago. I got the Wineguard carryout. works great.

RE: Possible to run heat at night without killing your batteries

More batteries. We have 4 house batteries, been watching movies the last couple of hours on inverter power and will still enough to run the furnace cause it gets cold out here at Quartzsite Az at night. More batteries.

RE: Fuel Costs

Thanks for the rest of you attempting to answer a question for me. I figured those who were actually there might be able to give me a better idea what the prices might be from your personal knowledge. \ Appreciate it.

RE: Fuel Costs

This is not available on the web? If you don't know or care, Why do you bother to answer with a question? To quote one of your own posts "Wow.. that's really helpful."

Fuel Costs

I'm trying to save a buck. Just like I choose fuel places in the US based on price. Here in Las Vegas, I can get diesel for about $3.69 a gallon. We sometimes fill up North of the border. Last year it was south of the border. We're heading south next week. Anybody got the current diesel prices south of the border I can use? Thanks

RE: Cdn Govt,DND,RCMP ANNUITANTS

I too have that insurance that I purchased through FMCA affiliate . I've never had to use it but through mine approval first has to be obtained from the parent company. I would prolly touch base with the insuring agency and proceed with their advice and approval.

RE: Bringing alcohol in RV to Mex.

Crossed at Lukeville in our Rv for the last 10 years. Coming back into the US no one ever asked, let alone looked for alcohol. That was our experience and we were stopped and spoken to every time .

RE: Bringing alcohol in RV to Mex.

I don't know where Mickey of that info and it may be correct, but I am concerned when they don't know how to spell tobacco. Just an observation. Wow, harsh, doin da best we can heah. Jist tryin to giv our opinoin Might want to check sentence structure/coherency on your own first sentence. Gottahaveit, A lot of what we' ll be able to tell you is personal experience. We've always taken quantities of wine with us heading south. Never a problem going either direction, but , we were asked once going south about alcohol but no enforcement. Our crossings have been at the Lukeville crossing Can they enforce more, yeah so might want to do a little research .
