Highlight of my trip south from San Diego to Ensenada was the front end loader staring me down on the highway at K95 of Salsipuedes as I drove around a quick curve. Went from 60mph to stop in a hurry and checked rear mirror to hope followers’ brakes were working well. That machine was packing down new blacktop. Two flag dudes plus two more supervisors were “What, me worry?”. Yep, cows, horses, no tail lights at night and front end loaders are all part of your encounters on the superhighway on the coast. Had to do a diaper check.
Geezo the K 94-95 area is getting bumpy again. How are those geologic studies going on the fault zone?
More TJ-Ens highlights:
The large pot hole at El Chaparral/TJ crossing is still prominent, just before bridge across the Rio, right lane.
Hwy 1 toll booth traffic was backed up to approx 20 car line, likely due to entrococcus scientists doing field work on the beaches.
Wonder when the new toll booth will open on Hwy 1 at Popotla?
Gasoline is 16.82 per liter in Ensenada. Now the gas rate and exchange rate are about equal. Approx $3.75usd/gallon. Paid $2.78 Tuesday in San Diego.
La Mision beach was packed. Apparently the enterococcus crisis has not hit that beach or the contamination is simply not being monitored there.
Adjusted my reconnection to Hwy 1 on south end of Ensenada. I’m done with the moon craters on Estancia and now enjoying the smooth pavement 1/2 mile south on Las Palmas at end of beach to jog inland back to hwy 1. FYI, Palmas is the southern edge of Smart & Final store on hwy 1.
White markings are on pot holes on Tramo de Muerte(Hwy 1 on south end of Ensenada toward Maneadero). Are these signs of alien invaders or is there a plan to smooth up that hot mess of pavement this year?

Reading local(Ensenada/Tijuana) newspapers is my morning coffee pleasure. There is always at least one article about a new financial outlay for infrastructure and at least one article on past infrastructure money losses/corruption every day. Shoveling is not so frequent on infrastructure, but is very prevalent on the money losses.
