Re: Jerry's Crown

Working on a baja bus trip for winter 09'/10' and could use any info you've got on great places to stop and anything that one would not be able to predict. Whats the story on wvo if you know? Any and all insight into this destination would be greatly appreciated. Especially any legal hurdles that need to be confronted before driving the bus in mexico.

Re: Jerry's Crown

First, Sorry Camo-Monster from Walla Walla, I changed servers. The right link is http://www.crowncoach.bravehost.com/leg&foot.jpg

We ran into a guy from Oregon in Slab City on the way down. We met him last year and talked him into taking his Carpenter down to Cabo San Lucas. He said he had a wonderful time but would have been better If he spoke a little spanish. So this year he's flying to Guatamala to study Spanish.
I can't tell you anything about the trip down Baja because I haven't been that way in 25 years.
No permits required for cars, campers, motor homes, motorcycles or other motorized vehicles in Baja.
You must get a Visa at the border. Do a little internet search on the crossing you will use and find out where they issue visas at that crossing. They cost a few bucks but I don't remember how much.
You need, Vehical Registration, Drivers liscense, passport.
You MUST have Mexican Auto insurance. We use Lewis & Lewis, You can get it on the internet. I think we pay about $350 for a year. It's cheaper that way.
Just GO, people do it all the time.
I just walked down on the beach and took this photo.
See Ya
Jerry

Hey Dieselman69.
Right now the cost of things is better because the peso is down or the dollar is up or something.
I have a deal with the owner of this place who lives somewhere else and It costs me nothing to stay here. I pay workers when I arrive to rebuild what was lost during the past year. It's all temporary. That usually costs from $100 to $200 depending. Every month we go to the closest bigger town and get some more pesos. That costs us about $300. So we spend about $300 a month to live here. For that money we live a life closer to that of a King than that of a poor person, which we are by US standards. Right now every one is catching fish (Dorado, Sierra, Wahoo) like crazy so some kind of fish is given to us almost daily. We have been doing this for about 25 years so we worked the bugs out long ago and now it's pretty much just smooooth sailing.
Good Luck to you and your wife
Jerry

Re: Jerry's Crown

I got a little more work done on the inside this summer. The weather just shut me down.

http://crowncoach.clanteam.com

The beach in Mexico was taken in August by a bunch of rich ass holes. They tore down every thing they didn't want and are using ,selling or eating the rest. The state police still have a fence across the road blocking access to the beach. We , and there are many of us, are fighting and beginning to gain a little ground with the government of Mexico but I'm not holding my breath. So who knows where we will go this winter. All I know is it will be warm.
It's already cold and wet here in Oregon.
