Even after 9/11 the border was still open but, with very long delays. I would consider that period in history to be the highest state of alert and paranoia. There also seems to be an indication that Iraq will not be attacked 'till 3/17, which is Monday. I think a lot of us will corss on Sunday the 16th.
Myself and Tim Hayosh crossed the border right after the first bombs droped in Afganistan. We did not even know untill we got to Yuma. I do not think they will close the border. I of cource will be going home on Saturday night, now that home is only 7 miles from the arches!
Well, if I get to the border on Sunday and they're not letting us come back, BUMMER!!!! I guess I'll have to turn around and go back to San Felipe!!! All those spring break kids will be stuck down there too!!! Their parents will wire them more $$$ I'll find an ATM and let the party continue... Hell maybe we can convince the racers who's vehicles survived to do some showboating or something!!! LET THE PARTY CONTINUE IF THE BORDER CLOSES!!!
God Bless Our Troops over there fighting for America's interest!!!!!

Just as a forwarning to you all, national defense will be bumped up a couple notches (dunno bout that stupid color thing tho) when the war kicks off. Don't think the troops overseas will be the only ones doing the work, we got word today in AWACS today that they are spinning up a bunch of crews for Noble Eagle (homeland defense) and alert crews are getting less prep time. Just a heads up for those that might be traveling out of country.
/26/03 Emergency Plans: It has been reported that if there is a red alert, the Mexico and Canadian borders will be sealed,
possibly for many days. Any people coming to San Felipe (or, indeed, to anywhere in Baja) need to have an emergency plan for
dealing with this situation - going to medical appointments, travel plans, returning from weekend vacations in San Felipe etc.
People resident in the US will be required to have complete documentation to cross border - passports and vehicle registrations,
proof of US residency (e.g elec and telephone bills.....). people not resident in USA will likely be refused entry even if US
We'll be leaving tomorrow for Pete's Camp. Look for the fat guy on the XR at spot 79 or 80 and we'll have some beers.

I always need a post-vacation after I "vacation" in Mexico. Haven't been on a Mexican "vacation" since the Baja 2000 when the stuff hit the fan before the 1/2 way point. I could go for a week in Loredo.
if you have an empty seat in your prerunner coming back from mexico you could give a ride to an illegal. coyotes are charging like 2200 per person right now. or you could take a whole van full and make a fortune!!!
Speaking of Coyotes, I have an employee who is trying to have his wife brought across and it is going to cost him $3000. He is a naturalized citizen and has been here without his wife for almost 15 years. But in the time he has worked for me I know he has frequently visited her and was always sending money to her and the kids.
