You can also only bring 2 packs of cigarettes, since they are much more expensive in Chile.
To enter Chile there is first a stop where they give the driver a piece of paper saying how many people are in the
vehicule. If you are not going to go all the way with the same driver don't forget to ask for a specific piece that say you are crossing on foot or something. Also drivers can be reluctant to pick you up all the way through the border so a sign sayin' Frontera or Aduana might help (then you can speak with them in the car)
In the north, most of the trucks will not pick you up because are afraid that Gendarmes can complains, [[User:Eazy|eazy]] took a lift from a local truck and asked the driver to stop a Paraguayan truck for him.
'''Paso Jama''' is the northernmost pass across the andes between San Pedro, CL and Juyjuy, AR. Coming from Chile, [[User:Dr.Keith|Keith]] had to have his pack x-rayed. There are lots of Paraguayan trucks passing through here and few civillians. [[User:Dr.Keith|Keith]] waited 1.5 hours in San Pedro and 2 hours at the border. The border is at 4200m and can be extremely windy and cold, especially at night - be prepared!
