Just to add to what Charles said, you can also get into MX with what's called an 'enhanced' driver's license.

Most border states have them, I know you can get em in NY, MI, TX and WA I dunno if Cali has them yet or not.

That's the 'easiest' way to get travel docs to MX.

Then you can get a passport card. (no, you do not already have to have a passport)


And then finally you can get a passport.


AND, you can actually cross the border without a passport, as long as you can prove citizenship, but expect to wait a long time in line. The Border guys told me I could use my EXPIRED passport for example, or a receipt that you applied for a new passport but don't have it yet along with a birth certificate, etc/

The little known secret is that they legally can't keep a citizen out but they can make it tedious and time-consuming as hell so I wouldn't recommend going without proper papers :)

Thanks Aaron & Charles. I think I've got it sorted out now. The reason I was under the impression that I needed a passport book first is because I was trying to apply online. If you don't already have a passport, you have to go apply in person, but they will give you The Card.

Hope to join one of these trips soon. Sorry for the semi-threadjack.

Tex (Austin),

You should at least come to MotoShow on Saturday to say bye to us. If not, it was a pleasure to meet you. Hope to see you soon again, here in Cal or in your corny backyard.
Have a safe trip. Let us know your address. Who knows, Joel may organize an Adventure ride to your place one weekend...

tex, it was pleasure having you around. you're a strange guy for your age, you think older and you don't behave as you should. good in a way cuz you were able to get along with old farts like us.....

take care, ride safe, and enjoy the holidays with your family and girlfriend.

merry christmas.

Hey Tex,

Since you are going to have a 2,000 mile trip why don't you register for iron butt and make 1,000 miles in 24 hours on your way home and get it over with?
Just an idea... s
