Road Trip – July 12 – 13, 2011

We left Santa Rosalia in the rental car about 6:30am with Rick driving. We had Gizmo, our cat, and a friend, Steve from Kharisma riding along. The roads were great in most places. Sometimes we were slowed by constuction, but we made good time.

We drove all day and made it to the border in Tijuana about 5 that afternoon. Somehow we ended up in the lane for locales and the guard was not happy! We were sent to the inspection area where we waited for at least 2 hours. Rick was escorted into the office and told he could be fined $5000. He signed forms stating he knew next time he would get fined.

We finally made it to San Diego about 8, had dinner and spent the night at a hotel.

The next morning we met Sarah, Darrell and Sparky for burritos. They are spending the summer in San Diego, then heading south. We will see them in La Paz this winter.

We left San Diego about 10, dropped Steve off in Long Beach and made it to Manteca by 7:00. It was a long drive, but the car did just fine. Now we have room to take goodies back to Mexico.
