On not using handlers at the borders
I am driving back to the states tomorrow from Costa Rica and having had a terrible time coming down at the borders using handlers my strategy this time is to not use them. I had got alot of good advice from the hubb on how not to repeat what happened on the way down, and I do want to thank everyone for all their advice.
My simple questions here is if I'm not going to use handlers at C.A. crossings does this mean I have to wait in those long lines of trucks till I get up to the customs, or can I just drive my motorcycle up to the head of the line, park it and start the process of:
migration, Passport out, customs vehicle out,
proceed to next border, park and, migration, passport in, and then customs get bike permit and pay ( I assume this is where they want the photo copies of everything as well) and I'm on my way....
Any simple advice on how to deal with the long lines of vehicles when approaching the borders, or add ons to the procedures that I may have missed would be very much appreciated, again thanks for the previous help as well.
I will be posting on my site freedomthrumovement.blogspot.com the return trip if anyone wants to see how it all goes going back.........
