Filling in the blanks: On the road to San Quintin

We make our first day of driving an easy one. Since the day's are shorter and we don't want to end up in the middle of nowhere when night falls, we always stop at San Quintin. We travel with our dog Lilly so we like to stay at The Old Mill which is totally dog friendly and is a cool place to spend a night. Check it out:

Pulling into The Old Mill motel. It's a tight fit if you've got a full sized truck. We like it because the courtyard is a secure place to park for the night which gives you piece of mind if you've got a couple thousand dollars of stand up boards on top of your vehicle.
Driving from the border to The Old Mill takes about five hours. You will also need to stop and get your tourist card paid for and stamped as you cross the border at San Ysidro- so figure a couple more hours into your day. If you want to stay at The Old Mill just look for the big signs as you drive out of San Quintin- follow the directions and you'll find it easily.
