Why Didn't We Do This? An Esquire Writer Walks the Border

An Esquire writer walks along the border from Imperial Beach to the Gulf of Mexico.


Published:

And now for the summer edition of "Why Didn't We Do This?" ... I'm just now reading (thanks Meanley, for the morning distraction during shipping week) the May issue of Esquire. We do our best here at San Diego Mag to cover a wide mix of everything San Diego, and I think overall we do a pretty bang-up job. Everything from satellite companies that started in Rancho Bernardo garages, to RSF friends with rad wetsuit companies (which we covered last year, way before Sunset and other local pubs picked up on their story), to all kinds of  restaurants, chefs, businesses, civic issues and the arts. And fashion. Nevertheless, I still find stories or approaches to stories that we didn't do. And we should have. Case in point: pages 131-141in Esquire's May issue.

The sent a writer down to Imperial Beach to walk the entire Mexican border. From the Pacific Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico. On foot. With only a stroller to carry his stuff. I'm only halfway through the story, but there's awesome maps, anecdotes, facts, wildlife photography and about a zillion other things that make you think.

Again, "Why didn't we do this?"  I guess we've been busy doing this. And this.

Read the full Esquire story here. The photo below is from the story's opening spread.
