Mar 1, 2019 - Back in the USA!!!
Mike and I took the lead of our little group today of 6 RV’s and drove back across the Mexican/ US border at Tecate. It was a little rainy but easy drive. We had a wait in line for about an hour while vendors tried to sell us things or beg for money. I hate to see that. We were warned not to give out anything. Once we got to the border guards, we were asked if we had any fruits or vegetables. We said no. The lady guard asked to see inside the RV which is often done.

Breakfast at the Pavilion this morning! Lots of goodies from the Tecate bakery, and cut up fruit. We had some last minute instructions for caravanning across the border tomorrow.

I got two fleece blankets cut and tied for the Mexican charity we will be working with when we get to Ensenada.Jump to full entry

They are all part of our Escapees...Jump to full entry
Nov 16, 2009 - Potrero: aux limites des USA
Départ vers 9h vers le sud pour atteindre la frontière près de Tecate, au Mexique, où il est plus facile et plus sécuritaire de traverser. En effet, plusieurs nous ont recommandé de ne pas passer par Tijuana, tout près de San Diégo, cette ville mexicaine étant reconnue pour son chaos et l’incertitude vis-à-vis les petits bandits et les trafiquants de drogue qui y vivent. De plus, il semble que cela prend 3 heures pour passer aux douanes, donc pas question d’aller poireauter à cet endroit. Nous décidons de nous installer pour la nuit au...Jump to full entry
