Crossed at SL Saturday 10/21 - long lines going south. Pickup loaded and covered with a tarp towing a trailer with my Jeep on board. Followed the signs and used the right lane. At the gate I was directed to secondary where I had to produce the registration for the Jeep and trailer. Had to start the Jeep to prove it was operable. No inspection and no migration anywhere in sight. I did not have to produce any personal ID etc.
I have temporary tag on the new pickup and the guy verified that the temp sticker had not expired.

Welcome to Super Nomad status with your post #1000!
Did you get your FMM while parked there or do you already have a visa/tourist card? Is the INM building or desk just somewhere out-of-sight at San Luis?

1000 Huh ?

I have residente Perminente.
No Migration person anywhere nearby. I guess anybody can just drive thru without one for that entry.
Probably because of the heavy traffic when I went thru.

So I was the only one in secondary and if an FMM would have been needed there would be no reason to just leave the rig there and walk. Who knows??

Identical situation on the 28th, pulling trailer loaded jeep had to cross all 4 lanes to secondary, young lady wanted to see if the jeep would run, then wanted to know what was in all the boxes in the bed of the truck, finally showed her our permanent resident card and then we were good to go. ya just never know what trips their trigger.
All in a days work.
