Well at least it seems positive. I read where one state rep. said the reason Biden has not moved on border opening is he is worried about anything that would add to his problems. The author of that comment then added if Biden followed that the border would not open until after the mid terms. WOW!!

Moisheh:

My "best guess" was a border re-open November 21st -ish. I was fairly pessimistic back in August.

As the article notes, US border towns need that 3+ day advanced heads-up P3 to kick into gear...

Fingers crossed [emoticon]

There is no problem in crossing now at Weslaco, TX. I just went over this past weekend.

Yeah, for sure there would and had always been no problem for US nationals to drive into Mexico and return to the US. The huge issue is that fully vaccinated Canadian and Mexican nationals are, um, locked in their respective countries and cannot enter the US by road.

For me to pick up mail just across the border in the US from our home in canada 15 minutes drive from the US, I would have to either rent a private aircraft and fly to a regional US airport 15 minutes drive from us (!). Or, drive 200 kilometers to Montreal, jump on a flight to Burlington VT or, God forbid Boston, rent a car, and drive 6 hours or 2 hours to my agency on the border!also, we can't visit our relatives 30 minutes drive from us in the US, without spending a day or two and several thousand dollars putzing around with the same logistical nightmare outlined above. Same for Mexican nationals fully vaccinated!

Canada allows US citizens to drive into Canada 2, 3, 4 times a day at will for any reason. As long as they are vaxed and have had a Covid test. According to my neighbor a US / Canadian citizen, gets a Covid test on the US side at no cost.

See what I am saying?

Not going to happen. Here in Arizona we are having more illegal crossings and drugs than ever. Things are tight in Nogales area currently. Has not been a word in the local News except problems.

"Europe travel ban: International tourists press US for November date" https://amp.usatoday.com/amp/5848058001

Although the above link does not seem to have anything to do with Mexico, it may be relevant. When Mexico announced that airline travel from many countries would be allowed they gave a vague date of early November. Now it could be November 1. Perhaps the administration will do the same for land borders. This whole nonsense is becoming stressful.

"Becoming stressful?" How about, "This stressful situation, that has gone on for over a year is getting worse by just teasing us and not giving us solid information???"

I power washed the MH today and aired up the tires. It is still winterized . Still don't know if it will go back into storage or hit the road. Maybe a Margarita will help with the stress. Can't hurt.
