In January, 2017, we took off in our Prius with our two cats to drive from Nebraska to Tijuana and onward to the city of Guanajuato. The whole drive took 6 days, averaging about 10 hours of driving per day (including stops). Overall, the drive was pleasant, not too stressful at all, and scenic. There were plenty of rest areas to stop at along the way for people who are worried about that sort of thing (think OXXO or PEMEX–they’re everywhere). Over the 3,000 or so miles that we drove, we were only stopped once by a police officer and he just asked to see John’s license and passport and then let us go. So the experience wasn’t at all what we expected. This video shows a little piece of the journey as we enter Guanajuato State.
