(you may not get past headline)

interesting mild double whammy today
woke up to email from Alaska Airlines that my scheduled LAX to ZIH on Feb 16 was cancelled.
No big deal.
Looks like they dropped Tuesday and Saturday and added Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

And then the new testing regulations...

SkyMed Sandra made a posting on Jan 7th. See Below. It provided a lot of information, not to mention the chain of comments before Sandra's. This is great site to stay informed as things change. I am sure the local Government will ramp up REAL FAST when they see the planes arriving are empty because people do not know if they can get tested in time to return back to the USA or Canada. The next two weeks will tell if the Local and National Support for testing is going to be able to react to this requirement.

Thanks for this. As you probably know, at this time Westjet has canceled all flights from February on. Trying to convince my wife that a one way ticket to Zihua on the 30th isn't loco. Who knows what our Most Unethical Prime Minister may do next. ;-)

Trying. No way of getting the dogs there. Can't drive. Can one drive from the US into Mexico? Hope you guys are doing well. Hoping you guys have a distant stragglers paddling behind you in febrero.

There is no problem with driving from the US into Mexico. Yes, I have verification of that several times over.

I have heard reliable reports of Canadians having their vehicle transported, via flatbed I believe, into the US, then flying to the US, meeting their vehicle then driving down.

I have at least one Canadian who is prepared to do that from Mexico to the US if necessary. The necessity of that has not been determined.

Come paddle, buy the house, stay.

Confirm. You can drive from the U.S. into Mexico without incident.
