OOh..that reminds me...I still gotta get the plumbing installed, the gas lines, the sewer vent pipes, a stereo, curtains, upholstery, bathroom finished, and cabinet hardware installed.
Better stop messing around here at the forums and get to work...

Virginia, are you bringing a telescope? I can bring mine, maybe we will have some clear nights. I don't know much about astronomy, but I do know that there is very little, if any, light pollution at Punta Estrella. Often, the sky there looks like a million diamonds strewn across a pitch black cloth.
I used to camp in Baja sans Airstream, just sleeping outside on a tarp. It is a woderful experience to fall asleep while looking up to the stars, on a quiet and lonely beach. Sort of puts things back into perspective.
Of course, then one day I found 2 squished scorpions under the tarp my sleeping bag was on. That put an end to the sleeping outside scenario.

My list is longer than your list, na,na,nana,na!!!
Still hoping to get the "57 Flying Cloud (yah- that would be Creampuff lll) ready for her maiden voyage by that week. Mucho work to do- wire in a Intellipower and 12 V. system, new water heater, toilet and sink and get a gaucho mod.I'm happy with. Just cut a new Ash cabinet end panel where the old wall furnace lived and my new Plat cat vented catalytic heater will get recessed into it. it's turning out real nice. Thank God I'm done with the floor repairs. Will install cork similar to Uwe's but that may not get done before Baja. If all that fails - I've still got the faithful Safari as my back-up for the trip.
Speaking of- if the FC is ready I would consider allowing someone who wishes to attend this rally- but is without aluminum- to perhaps bring the '67 Safari twin. PM me if that's you.

I'll make sure that we bring one - just as long as homeland security doesn't confiscate it thinking it's a weapon of mass destruction.

Hmmm, let's see, what do we need to get the Towster ready . . . hmmmm . . . . NOTHING!!!!! HA HA HA HA Ha . . .

Well,Vince is after me to sew some new curtains, but I'm not feeling all that domestic these days. I did however, test a new stripper on a patch of clearcoat and was very pleased with the results. Now that was fun!!!

Travel documents needed for Baja trip

Are passports required or just tourist visas if you're coming from "gringolandia" to baja? If passports are required, how long does it take to get one nowadays? The trip sounds great and would like to go if I can get the a/s, tv ready in time. Chipster

We'd love for you to join us. No passports or visas are required for entry to Mexico. You will have to prove your U.S. status to the 'Gringoland' when you return. A driver's license and a birth certificate will probably suffice. You'll need some vehicle insurance though as mentioned earlier in this thread.

Passport

I got detained for a few hours once for not having a passport. The US immigration ( now homelamd security) office stated that a driver license is not sufficient ID to enter the US. It is a license to drive, not a travel document, they said. I actually had a passport, but did not bring it along.
So, I do suggest passports, or as Murray stated, at least a notarized copy of your birth certificate for re-entry into the US. Make it easy for you and the US immigration officer at re-antry into the US.
Theoretically, a tourist visa is required for stays longer than 7 days, and for going further south than San Felipe. There is an immigration office in San Felipe for this purpose. The border check into Mexico is a breeze, usually we just get waved through.
The San Felipe area still falls under the border region regulations, which are way simplified from the general Mexican immigration laws.
More good information here:

Have Fun!

Unfortunately, after weeks of waitng to see how our schedule firmed up, we have to drop out of the trip to Baja with you guys . We were looking forward to it, but instead are headed to our daughter's soccer tournament.
I hope you guys have a great time...eating...drinking...looking at the starry skies...I know it will all be wonderful.

Happy trails!

Oh man,
I don't know how I missed this thread!
This New Yorker is just itching to try Mexico by AS.

It's to late for me now, with commitments already in place, but I'll keep an ear to the tracks for any future incursions into Mexico.

Put me on the list!
