Border crossing

Quote:
Which reminds me, I did see the shot of all of the traffic at the Border crossing, but I would like to know more. You said it was easy. Where did you cross? Did they even check your stuff? Open everything? Are you carrying a camp axe? Knife? Sword? Mace? Do they care? Sorry but I've never done it and for some it may be routine......
Yeah about the border crossing at Otay (right next to the big main TJ crossing). I crossed about 10am and it seems to never really get that busy. The picture was of people crossing into the US. Getting to TJ was no problem. The guard stopped me and opened my top case, then closed it and waved me through. My dad did not even put his foot down. South of the border zone keep an eye out for the temporary importation of vehicles checkpoint. $40 US for the permit and $200 deposit, based on the year of your bike. Attendant was very polite and professional. She gave me a receipt and everything. Easy as pie.
