If you need help driving to the border call.....

Recommended Posts

Rafael Aguilar...3312165892.   Rafael has a car rental business, drives people and their belongings to the border himself and has other excellent drivers working with him who do trips also.

A week or so ago I found it necessary to get myself and my car to the border at Nogales and due to some serious back problems I was hesitant to take the trip alone this time doing all the driving myself.  Rafael set me up with one of his drivers, Felipe, who drove all the way (two long days) and was very helpful in getting us back on the road when my car broke down between Guaymas and Hermosillo.  

I can't recommend Rafael and his crew highly enough.  Felipe doing the driving took most of the pain out of the trip for me and I spent the time listening to audio books.  Had he not been able to talk a passing driver, the only one who stopped anywhere near us in over two hours, out of a couple of gallons of water the breakdown we experienced could have been much worse than a few hours of delay.  I also strongly suggest that anyone making this trip across the desert carry a few gallons of water with them and some tools.  The Green Angels must be busy tuning their harps somewhere these days and trying to get a tow truck out to the desert can take hours. Despite several desperate calls to various emergency numbers no one ever showed up to help us.

But, all ended well.  I am safely relocated to Tucson and will soon be getting free VA treatment for my physical problems. 

Just wanted to commend good work.

I found out after breaking down in the middle of nowhere that a tarp for shade is also very useful

Good for you, Charlie.  We had good service from the Tucson VA Hospital. Hope you have the same.
