Making a run for it, back in the United States

Kathryn and I just finished a late lunch on the northern side of the border, in Yuma. I looked at the CBP website around 10 am to get an idea of border crossing times, and I was a little shocked to see two-hour wait times so early in the day. Thinking it would only get worse, we decided to skip lunch in Mexicali and make a run for the border. Either we caught a lull or used the “wrong” lane on the Mexican side, but we got across in about 40 minutes. That included about 10 minutes in secondary because I made a wrong turn after leaving the primary inspection booth.
