ROAD to Gonzaga UPDATE

Today was my first day back from mako-ville. San Diego to Mexicali was good. You now turn
right just before the old border crossing. Travel a couple hundred yards and take a left into the
NEW crossing. DO NOT do it at 5:00 thru 5:30 am as the morning train will block the entrance
for about a half hour. For FMM's take the tight left coming out of the parking lot. Follow about
1/4 mile and get your FMM. You are now where you used to get them, so from there the roads
are the same all the way.

Everything from to San Felipe was easy, then on towards Puertocitos. From km 60 all the way
to the "Y" at Puertocitos is torn up. They are building around all the vados. That is a 14km
stretch, and is graded BUT I blew a tire going donw last week so be careful.

The rest of the way to Gonzaga was good. I leave again on MONDAY taking a group down to
mako-ville and expect to sea a little rain in the area from "Rosa". Hopefully we are leaving just
before the rains. Will post any problem areas on my return to California on the 7th.

Coming back yesterday I got thru to the border wall and followed it all the way to the SENTRI
lane where we were diverted back thru town with GOOD signage to the NEW border crossing,
less then a mile. 3 Sentry lanes open less then 5 minute wait. They also had the regular lanes
open at both the old and the new crossing. The New crossing had maby a 10 minute wait, the
old crossing was much slower.

Hope this helps in these changing times, tight lines amigos.

Hey bob when you say new border are you talking about Mexicali east? Or did they move the Mexicali west border entrance and exit?

I come down 8 to 98 to 111 crossing. I think that is west and they did move it.

This helps a ton thanks Bob.. Will keep an ear out from your report on the way home because if Rosa takes the toll they say it will, torn up won't begin to describe the probable conditions of the roads.. Don't have any other transportation for the Yak other than the civic and the thule rack so will have to play this one close to ear..

Keep us posted..

Thanks amigo..

-Stevie

That does NOT look good. Roads if even passable, will be more jacked then they already were. After Rosa, thereís another tropical storm ďSergioĒ predicted to turn into a cat 2 hurricane. Hopefully that one misses baja. Those roads are definitely nothing to take a chance on.

We decided to take the Federal HWY 1 instead of 5 going south on Thursday. Going to see the Rossman.

On the way back on the 11th, we hope the dirt road south of Gonzaga is dry.

If so that is the plan, otherwise we have to forgo San Felipe and eat the motel reservation bill.

I have a friend headed back to SD from here and has been stuck on the south side of a similar wash out on Mex 1 in the Catavinia area. Drive safe.

While the title says it's between San Felipe and Puertecitos, this one is actually 14 miles north of Bahia Gonzaga. So Just before Makoville. Once it's dry, they will have a detour around that in a matter of hours, but then again, Sergio is looking more and more like it may take similar path.

There are actually 2 washouts reported at KM 122 and KM44.

P.S According to NOAA hurricane Sergio models show that it is turning away from land. However they are predicting that it will turn back.

Damn. This is all rather intense.

I've been in the process of upgrading my little single cab 2wd tacoma to a crew cab tacoma/frontier with 4x4 or a locking rear dif. What was a "nice to have" is starting to look more like a "must have" in order to make this trip down.

Just get a good running start and you should clear the gap.


Be safe!

I saw pictures of underpass for water built in concrete for the water to go under.

These are for the new roads that are being built in Baja.

Some even maybe to by-pass Coco's Corner.

I thought I can join Bob for the TG holiday, but I have reservation in Colorado to do ice fishing with Bill Varney.


Looks like next year for Bahia Asuncion.
