    I prefer a bed, too. Is there a safe place to park a truck near Tecate?

    Yes there is parking at the border I never had any problems, always use the one on the right with the coffe stand at the entrance.

    Always use the gas station - mini mart as the rally start point. Easy to find directly across from the roadside coffee stand.
    447 Tecate Rd, Tecate, CA 91980

    Planning to be rolling by 9 at the latest.

    I typically park at the lot where the coffee stand is but it’s been pretty full the last couple trips.

    As for Cal’s, always best to book online ahead of time. Take care of yourself

    I am interested in joining. I haven't done much dirt riding in last 6-7 years, but I picked up a KTM Super Enduro last year and want to get it dirty :)

    Made my reservation at Cal's, Rick wanted to know the name of the group and how many of us to keep us together?

    Just tell Rick “the rolling dipshits” are stopping by and to have a big ass bowl of guacamole waiting for us at the bar. He’ll know what to do





    (Please don’t do that)

    I'll be reaching out to Rick this week and asking that he holds the rooms in the "game room" for us.

    Heads up kids! Migration just south of TJ set up a checkpoint checking for Passports and FMM yesterday. People on the Talk Baja & Rosarito Living Facebook pages showed pics of being stopped this morning 8-22-19. So yeah, the old days of I've never need it before or you son't need it for Baja are long gone.

    I was asked for my FMM card years ago and didn't have one so I always get one. Thanks for posting the heads up.

    True story:

    Back in 1969 I was riding down to Ensenada with my parents in my dad's pickup for the start of the NORRA Baja 1000. At the time Richard Nixon had started his war on drugs and was giving Mexico a hard time. Mexico decided that they weren't going to allow any of those dirty American Hippies into their country because they were all carrying drugs back north. As we crossed at San Ysidro we were stopped and because my hair was shoulder length we got turned around! Well my old man was more than a little pissed. So we decided to drive over to Tecate and I hid in a sleeping bag under the motorcycles in our camper shell. Yes friends, I've been smuggled INTO Mexico! Hahahahaha!

    Sounds like our Sat night stay at Coyote Cal's might be an exciting evening ... couple of big groups including a Tim Morton Baja Bound Adventures group will be there. Should be lots of stories and lies around the fire, sure hope Rick put in a BIG order of beer for the weekend. :dutch

    Curry chicken for dinner ... mmmmm! :dukegirl

    Oddly enough, I really like that LS2 lid I had to buy on our trip! So much so, that my new road lid is a LS2.
