RE: Michigan to Arizona route advice

Snow depends on elevation. Most of the time snow is short time in duration and not deep but weather in the Southwest USA is tough to predict as weather fronts can come from any direction. Just this last week a warm front came from the Southwest and hit the cold front from the North producing cold rain and winds. Hit bad snow in West Texas a few years ago and had to overnight at the Walmart in Ft Stockton. Two hour window opened in early morning and we were able to make it far enough West to get out of the snow. Sunny most of the time is the norm. rocmoc n Southwest USA / Baja

Been to Roswell in Rv twice. Roads are good, only West out of town is 4 lane. Watch weather closely as it can snow this time of year. rocmoc n Th Southwest USA / Baja

RE: Michigan to Arizona route advice

We have traveled these areas many times with our RV and live in the Southwest. Winds are common from West Texas to the California coast. We have had to pull over and hunker down a minimum 1/3 of the times. Winds can gust over 65mph. Look for a box store or rest area and wait it out. Point your rig into the wind if possible and hope it doesn't snow. Yup it can snow East New Mexico border to West Arizona border. Best route is to get to I10 as quickly as possible. Great advice in earlier post, drive FEWER hours per day. Our rule is 6 hours or 300 miles max, whichever comes first. In general we drive 250 miles at 61 to 66 mph depending on conditions. After 3 days, we take a break for a day or two. rocmoc n Th Southwest USA / Baja

RE: Border Crossing Pictures!!!

Maybe earlier! We live near Nogales and have seen Canadian plated RVs heading South on I19. Assume they stored their RVs in the States, flew home, flew back and already are SOB. They are beating the crowd. JMHO! rocmoc n Th Southwest USA (Baja next winter)

RE: Expired RV permit

Our last trip down in winter 2019, we had replaced a broken windshield with attached sticker. Sticker was shredded but I kept the pieces. But I also had a new passport which means a new number. Used the new number online and new sticker arrived in 3 days via mail. Can only assume the same would have happened at KM21. Still took the shredded sticker with me South. rocmoc n Th SouthWest

RE: Buenos Aires Wildlife Refuge

I live in the general area and we do have persons without USA citizenship moving North. Most are carrying substances of value that are not personal use items. (trying to be PC) We and other locals use the buddy system even when off-roading. Beautiful area but a bit bleak in the winter cold. It does snow, several videos on Utube of people camping in the winter and getting stuck in a snow storm. Locals don't trust weather forecast, it is often wrong. Be careful and aware. Best with other persons and campers. The link provided is to a review in 2014. A lot has changed in the last 5 years, we have been here for 20 years. rocmoc n Th SouhWest

RE: Mask use in Mexico Right Now-It's IMPORTANT!

Come on Man! You haven't heard of breakthu cases. That topic is carried on Blue & Red News Channels. But if you want to take the time, Clinical Studies in USA, UK, Israel and France can be found easily on the internet. Get off TV and read Clinical Studies. Incredible amount of INFORMATION if one can READ! Mask!! I/We ALWAYS wear double n95 (we are one of the few that have n100s when needed) to protect us and a side benefit is it protects others. I have a Degree in Engineering with background in Pneumatic Systems which include Aerosols and smaller particles. And MANY University Lab Test since the start of Covid have been run by different Engineering Departments verifying that Mask Work, N95 and greater. That is a FACT! So the Mexico tie! Does anyone have info about long term Covid care in Mexico? We want to head South but may wait until Spring for all your feed back. rocmoc Th SouthWest

RE: Border

Just heard on morning News the Mexico border will also be opened so should be no problem to return. All will have to be Vacced in Jan '22, even essential workers. Will be interesting as we have had alot of Mexican essential workers coming across the border for the last couple of years. Never knew if they were vacced. rocmoc n Th SouthWest

RE: Border

Recent interview from the Toronto Star: "Testifying on “threats to the homeland” before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, Mayorkas would not directly respond to queries from Chairman Gary Peters, a Democrat from Michigan, and Sen. Maggie Hassan, a Democrat from New Hampshire, about the reasoning behind barring Canadians who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 from driving to the U.S. Mayorkas also signalled the fate of the northern border may be tied to that of the U.S.-Mexico border, where the federal government currently enforces strict asylum and entry restrictions amid record-high migration levels." rocmoc n Th SouthWest

RE: Border

As I said before watch the Southern Border USA immigration issue. Until there is some resolution, the border will remain closed via CDC covid health order. Again local Network News reports are not good about problems on the AZ/MX border. The border is going to closed until 2022 or later unless there is a successful court challenge to the CDC Order. OR US Congress takes up the immigration issue, which maybe never. AND CDC can't justify closing one border without closing the other. That is real life in the USA! rocmoc n Th SouthWest.

RE: El Paso: border restrictions possibly lifted late October

Not going to happen. Here in Arizona we are having more illegal crossings and drugs than ever. Things are tight in Nogales area currently. Has not been a word in the local News except problems. rocmoc n Th SouthWest USA

RE: Border

Has to do with illegal migration from the Southern Regions. Trying to stop people attempting to enter USA side-stepping legal migration processes by using the Covid Pandemic as the basis of the closure. Legality of the action by the CDC to close the border would to called into question if the border was opened for other use. Canada is as side issue, how can you close one border without closing the other? MHO! rocmoc n Th SouthWest USA

RE: Travelling is not getting easier

In line with OP post, we are hoping to make it down Baja this winter. Hopefully the booster will be ready by then as will not go without it. If we don't make it down, we will play around the SouthWest in a few places. Since we are already here, just have to go out the front door and get the toys out. WE are wearing double kn95 mask and never stopped. We never changed any of our safety measures, just felt safer after our jabs. We have made one RV/MH shake down run in SouthEast Arizona a week ago as the rig was in the garage for over a year. Before that just start it up, move outside, let her run for 30-60 minutes including the gen and moved back in. On one of the start/runs, spotted cracks in the tires so a full set was installed. Next thing is the start batteries are weak so they will be replaced. If you have not been out, take a shake down run to make sure your rig is ready to go. Enjoy everyone, it is as good as it is going to get for a long while. rocmoc n AZ/Baja
