Re: We're Out of Here!

It's a done deal. We'll arrive SD Tuesday evening about 6:30 and make our way down to Ensenada. We'll be cutting it close to make the last bus to Ensenada. Are there any CF folks in San Diego that might give us a ride to the border?

So glad you are all coming to sail with her. That's great news and Zee is very happy. All things considered it seems the gods were looking out for her when they sent us in. She can explain that further herself.

I am soooo glad to hear this looks to work out. I posted requests on Zee's behalf in response to several "crew available" ads here on CF. And as usual our CF family has come through! Whoo hoo!

Zee, if you're reading this, Monkey has been banned for a while. He says hi and wants you to know he's thinking of you, though he can't say it here.

Re: We're Out of Here!

Zee, while you're there in Ensenada, be sure to eat lots of fish tacos, sold at the open air stands right there by the waterfront. Two for a dollar, and yu -uh-mee!

We are definitely getting fish tacos while here. Wolfecon caught a bus an hour ago. I'm here till at least tomorrow possibly to Sunday.

Having a blast with Zee. Chilling and communing at the dock and watching the city fire up it's welcome for the cruise ship that just docked.

Re: We're Out of Here!

Zee, looks like you got a chance to further check out your boat. Looks like it came through with flying colors. David, had a run in w/ IRS a few years ago myself. They obviously don't advertise they are going to impound your funds. Happy you have a gig to pick up the slack. I am pretty confident you will be able to join Karen again soon.
Zee, PLEASE keep us posted, I have learned so much from cruising sailors, that I have the confidence to do it myself with one exception MONEY!!! But 6that never stopped me before ,I'll get there.

Re: We're Out of Here!

If you are going to join a boat in Ensenada from San Diego, don't forget to stop at immigration as you cross the border and get a tourist card. Last November in Ensenada we saw someone being fined (~$75) for not getting one at his first port of entry (Tijuana) and just trying to get one in Ensenada instead after the boat had already entered.

What a great bunch of people. I makes a body proud to be a member of a place where people will go to these lengths to help out a fellow sailoress. Well done, group.

Re: We're Out of Here!

Yes. It's possible, and simple, to do it right there at the border, for instance if you have taken the trolley to the border. Before getting on the bus, take care of it when you walk across the border at the San Ysidro crossing.

We'll check the requirements when crossing at TJ. Thanks.

Re: We're Out of Here!

Immigration is on your left just after you go through the border crossing maze at San Ysidro. There is a bank right next to it; so you just fill out the form, pay, return for a stamp, and are on your way.

Sounds simple enough. Any idea how much the "Pay" part is
