Heading down to Baja from Tennessee. END OF DECEMBER
How is border and crowds at that time?
Will come to San Diego first.
Will have my two kids with me.
FJ will not go. I don't want to donate it to a thief down there.
I will be taking my 1998 RAV4 which is quiet capable to handle many terrains. I took it to the Arctic Ocean last year.
I don't want to attract attention in a Voodoo blue FJ..
Got 255k miles on it.. Just got it compression tested.... (130/150, 100/115, 125/140, 125/155)
I know I need a passport.
I will have gas on my roof.
Drive only during the day time. CAN I travel at night? If I have to travel only during the day light hours that will really put me behind schedule !!!!!
Keep to main roads. I have the tendency to go into unknown roads for fun but I must avoid in Mexico. Right?
Follow a caravan of cars if possible.
Have cash stacked inside my socks along with my cellphone.
Have some cash outside for bribes?
Any survival tips are welcome. Thanks !!!
Attaching pic of my rig that will be used for this job.
I have also mounted the traction plates since yesterday. One picture from when I was at the arctic circle last year...
Again.. thank you for any input/advice.
ALL OEM .. even the oil filter..
