Re: We're Done & in Mexico
We made it to Mexico. BBBBUUUUUUTTTTTTT - great story involved. We crossed the border at Mexicali and we were denied. The man asked me for my commercial paperwork because I was traveling in a commercial vehicle. Then he sent us back to the U.S. which required them to stop every single lane of traffic so we could flip her around and head back across U.S. border. The U.S. border people checked our passports and their dogs sniffed the bus. We crossed the border and on the recommendation of the border control on the U.S. side, we drove nine miles away to a new border crossing that simply walked through the bus and inspected it.
The bus itself made it down fantastic. We are having some serious battery issues. Our fridge propane stopped igniting and drained the battery down to nothing. It took us four days to drive down here and it drained the battery to 8. We realized that the battery terminal wasn't re-charging the battery itself. Now we're down here and both of our trickle chargers are broken. We cannot figure out why both broke. Coincidence? We don't know. So, we had the fridge fixed - new ignitor - but cannot plug in now at the campground because the charger isn't working. But all is working out regardless. The bus is working fine with little tweaks here and there. The toilet leaked until Steve tightened it a bit and the sink is leaking a bit but apparently it is an easy fix. See, many little things to figure out. But, we're parking inches from the beach and the weather is beautiful. I'll have photos on our blog very soon of the full moon over the bus!
