So how does one go about getting the lot of you (multiple nationalities) and the bus through the boarder? Any issues?

I'd be interested in doing a Baja run like this sometime. I will have to pick your brain sometime.
The DSBC guys were nice enough to pick me up at the park and ride in Stanwood.
Going into mexico was really easy, it was 2am so I was a little intimidated by the process, but some of the guys had been before and knew what to do.
Coming into the states from Mexico was a little more work, but the mutiple nationalities was not an issue.

Thanks, Harry, I needed that!

It sounds like the pile of spares your compadres recommended that you carry weren't needed.

Glad you got back safe and sound.

glad you guys enjoyed it, thanks for the compliments

The Kenda 270's held up great, the front tends to wash a little in the sand, I would use them again.
