I just got back from a 6 day trip around the northern peninsula. Here are a few new twists that I saw: - There is a new approach to the Tecate border crossing, it starts way out to the east, coming in on the free road. It is just east of the Circle K and has a road sign. So you can now get to the line without going through town. The regular approach is still open also, but I imagine that when the line gets very backed up, you will have to get in via this route. - 5pm Saturday night, not a single car in the line at Tecate - The race course road from Ensenada to Ojos seems to be jacked up again. Coming off the highway at the Pepsi stand (Ensenada side) there is a crude spray painted sign that says "motos por carretera federal", bikes use the highway. The toll gate is completely gone, as if it never existed. As we passed the nice ranch down in the bottom, the one with the oak trees, I waved at the lady and she made an angry gesture back. I think she was headed out to intercept us. It was just three of us and we were just idling past nice and quiet. On the Ojos side the gate was fine, same as always. - There is a a huge amount of quarry activity on the "volcano" down at Sn Quintin. Big parts of mountain are gone. One trail that goes from the top down now has a 50' cliff. You could easily start down and never even realize it. So beware.
