Road trip rom Mex city → Los Angeles → San Francisco, CA. Is It possible SO cheap SO cool SO awesome? [no way dude check this out first!]

Hi everyone!

My name is Jorge and I’m gonna take a road trip from mexico city to San Francisco Starting Monday October 8th, 2012 and I’m here being cool inviting you to go with me and other CS pals who wanna join.
I’m gonna Start from Mexico city all way up to Los Angeles then Frisco. you won't believe the prices super chepa read all of this thing and prices explananation are below.

I’ve been road triping before from mex city to NYC and other cities like Houston, Laredo etc.. so I have a bit of experience driving all way mex and usa no problem about it.

I’m looking cool people who wanna join, spend some cool time, love to travel and openmind and ain’t necessary to
start together from mex city, You can take the ride wherever you want in fact I’m gonna post the same Invitation within several main CS cities groups so feel free to check the route and join wherever you want. There are 2 cool possible paths we can take. This is
the safest PATH and the I'm explain the other safer one.

WELL THE FIRST ONE WOULD BE LIKE THIS: Mex city→ Queretaro → Leon → Aguascalientes→ Guadalajara → (After Guadalajara maybe Puerto Vallarta or Tepic later on depends of our choice I'm ok with both) → Mazatlan → ferry west to CABO SAN LUCAS→ then la paz → Ciudad constitucion → baja California norte → and T.J → san diego → Irvine → Long beach → L.A FINALLY SF

SECOND PATH (safer and cool): Culiacan → Los Mochis→ hermosillo → AFTER HERMOSILLO WILL BE getting into Tucson (ARIZONA) → PHOENIX → COACHELLA → FINALLY L.A.)

If we take the SECOND PATH, (north Mex) I use to drive them where the traffic car flow is quite active and sunshine of course. This is the BESTWAY to avoid the DANGER, no problem with it. In fact this path is safe too no to much problem about the danger. (STILL
TALKING ABOUT THE SECOND PATH) THE ONLY ROAD WE HAVE TO BE AWARE OF IS FROM HERMOSILLO TO THE BORDER OF DOUGLAR OR NOGALES.

Will be great experience! ABOUT THE COOLEST PATH the first one, like I said The ferry is quite
amazing! You gonna love it MAZATLAN → LOS CABOS [FERRY PRICE FOR MY CAR Vehículos
comerciales (autos, pickups, Van, trucks 2,743.00 ]http://www.bajaferries.com/

I’m leaving from mex city on October 8th so I can
pick you up later depends whether I’m gonna crash places for several days or just kinda in a rush all way north-west I dunno yet.

INTERESTED PEOPLE PLEACE POST it here or PM and I’m gonna spread tons of details like time, dates etc.. ASK ANSWERS ASAP

I’m super open to change the path and whether some people

ABOUT COSTS:

FROM MEX CITY TO LA
IS ABOUT $4,500_MXN FUEL SO if you join later of course less money

If we take the cool path the FERRY the ferry cost is about $2,743.00 plus from Mazatlan to cabo san lucas cuz you know, the car. http://www.bajaferries.com/

TOLL ROADS JUST WITHIN MEXICO BETWEEN $1,200_mxn and $1,800 depends of our path.

SO ALL THAT AMOUNT OF MONEY WILL BE SPLITED AMONG ALL THE MEMBERS to reach SF.

The fuel within usa is kinda the same price believe or not
like mex. I use regular fuel and it’s about $3.60usd or $3.90usd PEER GALON depends of the day and franchise but no problem is kinda the same like mex.

I’m gonna start the trip from Mex City To Aguascalientes with 4 good pals but after Aguascalientes just another buddie gonna join from Aguascalientes to Mazatlan only. Then I'm gonna be by myself so plenty of space

WHAT ABOUT THE RETURN?

The same path same all. If you wanna join back I would like to come back on 26th,27th or 30th October. The
flights back WITH VOLARIS now are about $1,900 plus tax like $2,000 from LAX airport or TJ cheaper or same price so it’s your choice. Its kinda cool both. About the car is perfect. Every time I take the road I maintenance it no problem to it I know to change wheels haha. You
can check pics about my car in my CS album.

If anyone with more experience have a better path from mexico to the EAST USA BORDER pleace LET ME KNOW I’m super open like my ears and YOU KNOW, safer routes is better. Thanks in advance for your help.

ANY SPECIFIC DOUBTS LET ME KNOW I’m gonna post this invitation in several groups like I said. HOPE YOU GONNA JOIN AND HAVE A GREAT CS experiences and nice month!

Thanks for reading

Best,
Jorge
