Excellent Border Crossing At Laredo II

Took off at 7:30 this morning.  Pulled the trailer out of the drive without a hitch (actually the hitch works great now!).   Stopped for gas and to air up the tires and headed through Monterrey hitting a bit of morning traffic although light as school is out this week and next.

We headed for the libre.  Smooth as glass and I insist it is just as good if not better than the autopista.   Stopped in Sabinas Hidalgo and prepared breakfast with leftovers from the fridge at home.  Off we went again for the border arriving in Nuevo Laredo at noot.  Took us an hour to cross the bridge and the U.S. border agents were fantastic.  Funny and talkative, we had a woman at the booth and she talked up a storm.  Off Juan went for his permit and I headed for the X-ray machine.   Took twenty minutes for both and off we went to San Antonio.

Just had a nice dinner with friends and we are driveway camping at our neighbor's house.  

More tomorrow.  It was a great start and everything is working well.   The pins I installed for the hitch worked great and we never dropped a bar. 


  1. All Right! What a great start for a great trip! We'll be watching as you move along... but of course I'm especially looking to seeing you two in Maine. Much love and safe travels....

  2. First border crossed without a hitch. May the rest of your journey be as smooth. Enjoy the ride.

  3. Nice. Where's the picture of the RV parked up for the night? I wanna see one of each different spot!
