When is the last time you drove right up to the gate when re-entering the US from Mexico? Well, I did it this summer, twice within two weeks. The secret is to take the very pretty drive to Tecate, and cross there. Both times I drove right up to the booth were during the middle of the week, between 2 and 4 pm. I can’t guarantee anything, it is always a crapshoot when it comes to waiting times at the border, but at Tecate, you can hit the jackpot occasionally. I have given up crossing either way at Chaparral, it is a mess, and you are almost guaranteed to be stopped and searched. So, I hope nobody reads this, and things stay the way they are. All I know is that I no longer dread crossing the border back to the US now that I use Tecate exclusively.
