Seems that it is not a hassle if you are at the Mexican border. Hope you had a good ride and many more after this one. :D Enjoy your wing, and be careful. ;)

The next time you come back this way make sure you look up Brad and/or myself, heck you may even have met Brad when you were on the ferry.......
