Sacramento to San Felipe + possible return. Soon


Leaving Sac on Sunday for San Felipe. A ride-along that is able to share driving would be desirable. Female preferred. My age 70; longtime Baja driving history. (since 1967). >>>> Vaccinated <<<

Yes TW 200 and what a fun bike, but not fast enough to get out of the way of those crazy truck drivers down there.

Hopefully on my next trip I can take my dirt bike :)

Crossed southbound at Calexico/Mexicali West mid afternoon Thurs 3/25. It only took 10 minutes or so to get to the front of the line, 5 minutes or less for my Sprinter to be inspected, and another 5 min. to get our FMMs and be on our way.

The southbound military checkpoint on Hwy 5 near the intersection with Hwy 3 was also quick and routine.

We crossed back to the U.S.A. on Monday 3/29, also at Mexicali West, because we departed San Felipe too late to make Mexicali East by the 2pm closing. The wait in line was about 2 hours, 15 minutes.


A "much needed long weekend in San Felipe" satisfied the essential purpose requirement for everyone who asked, Mexican and American alike, and resulted in a smile from all but the U.S. Border Patrol Agent.

At least take a break at Gonzaga Bay, have a look, 1 mile from the highway at Rancho Grande (Km. 147+, second driveway left after the gas station).
