We've never seen anything at the casino CG to raise a red flag. Not sure how often security checks etc. but there are other RVs around. Good for her to ask.

Our schedule changed and we were there today - read on. 1.5 miles to the border parking lot. $6 car, $8 RV (I think) and something about getting permission. The gate money collector said you can stay overnight in the RV - To be clear this is the border parking lot. Maybe that is a future option for us.

Walked in got the meds and out at 2:00, no line.

My hats off to DW as it's good to be concerned. There were several RVs on the north side of I-8 and don't know about that area.

I think there is an effort to make your visit there safe. I did see one armed (Mexican) person today and last year 2 directly across the US return entry with some big guns during my 45 minute wait.

BTW No doggies today and they ignore us anyway or maybe we just thing they do.

Got some meds today from the Purple Pharmacy, never bought alcohol from the Purple Liquor store but decided to buy a belt today. He said they are part of the Purple group. Who would know?

So one can get their meds and booze and return to the US. What a deal! [emoticon]

The area north of I-8 where there is always some RVs parked is BLM Land. As far as Quechan being safe, no problem.

zhidoni, if you are going to downtown Algodones in the AM, wear a heavy jacket, it is cool down there in the AM!

Ok I know a lot of people go to Mexican dentists, my question is are they as good as U.S. dentists? I want a "painless" dentist (as much as possible) and I want quality work with good sanitization practices?

My experience with Sani Dental in Algodones, MX was quite good. The dentist who did my crown and fillings was as good as any i have had in the states. The facility is like any you would see in the US. I recommend doing your research. Check Yelp reviews; they are more trustworthy than Google reviews.
Algodones is a small border town. most dental offices are a very short walk from the crossing.

While I don't have a problem walking into Algodones from a security point at his time be aware and check the current status. Baja California which includes Algodones is Exercise Increased Caution. Just be aware.
