If it helps, I have a home in Yuma, Arizona--about 180 miles east of San Diego, but same approx. latitude (just on the US side of the Mexican border) that you are welcome to keep it at. You will have close proximity to 2 border crossings here in town when you want to head south.

Member 'mojorising' is touring the US from the UK, but is based at a relative's home in Phoenix, which might be better for you.

East Coast available if you need it.

If for some reason you need it stored on the east coast I am close to New York City and dealers are nearby if you need parts.

Email 'mojorising' as he is on tour right now. Obviously, I can't speak for him (or his relative who's home mojo is using as his base) but it would be worth a try.

Yuma is about half way, literally, between Phoenix and San Diego, and there is a Greyhound bus that goes either direction, as well as shuttle vans from Yuma to Phoenix airport (worse case scenario, if you "had" to leave it here). I have other friends in the Phoenix area, too, which might work out for you, again, if Phoenix seems like the place to pick up your journey next year. PM 'mojorising' at any rate.
