Call me (pm me) if you get closer and don't figure something out. A friend of mine will be chasing in my truck and could pick you up maybe a day before. Alternatives include: Mentioned by frog.

Take the bus and trolley system to the Otay border and take a cab to my place where my friend can take you down south.

Thanks beechum and Baja Dad, I get in to SD airport with an buddy at 9:37 am,on the Nov 13th, I'll take any help from fellow racers if it works out for you guys or Frogs info is always a last resort. Also Beecum can a guy buy prepaid phones that work fairly well down the peninsula for international calling? My ATT worked great but I'm on Verizon now which is no so bueno

I'd recommend a GSM phone and buy a telcel card when you get down there for local calls and some SHORT international calls.

with my sprint phone I get free google voice integration which I can use data to get voicemails and send and recieve texts.

for the duration you're going to be down there (if it's only a few days) use a telcel card, load it with 300 pesos (~25$) and you'll likely get 300 pesos "regalado." That's quite a bit of data for one week and you can do emails and such and texting if you have to INTL. V

voice calls, any way you do it, are cheap-ish, but can add up pretty quick.

If you take a cab from the SD airport to the American Plaza (across from the Santa Fe train station, maybe 3 miles away) you can take the trolley to the border (San Ysidro). Costs just a few bucks.

Schedule here:
http://www.sdmts.com/mtscr/TrolleyTT.aspx?r=510&d=South

If you get hung up for some reason I work across the street, send me a PM.

cab will cost about 20$. Trolley is 5$. OR, you can take the bus from the airport to the trolley. about 1.5 hours depending, and the same 5$ (day pass for all san diego) available on the bus as you get on.
