Heading to mexico soon and dont have a passport. I used to just cross on foot in tijuana and deal with the extra scrutiny on the way back but in the past year or two they've started checking people as they enter.

I know some crossings in texas dont check id, but does anyone have information for CA or AZ? Nogales, Mexicali, Tecate, Sonoita? Has anyone crossed recently in these places on foot or driving?

Naw man i go to mexico pretty often, im saying that in the past couple years theyve started making you show yr passport upon entry into mexico at SOME border crossings, just wondering if anybody has crossed recently somewhere that didnt happen. Lost my passport and would rather not have to hop in.

Otherwise im gonna try to cross a few places and will let you know what happens.

The passport card is pretty easy to get and alot cheaper than the passport book. Does not require stamps and allows you to cross as many times as you like. I got the book and card for trucking.

Last time I checked you needed the card at a minimum in Tijuana and every other border crossing.

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

Nice picture, on the Wikipedia "hobo" page... I was working on that page a little, a few weeks ago. It's a total mess and I just scratched the surface, but I keep watching and hoping someone else will improve it. That photo improves it for sure. Wish I knew enough about hobo history to write something decent there.
