just back

we crossed at algodones 10.9 and traveled through small towns to the 3 and south to san felipe area. no issues at all. rode dirt and pavement to loretto without any issues with any of the locals. very helpful and nice people all around. military checkpoints no issues just peaking through belongings. didnt feel unsafe at all at any point. doing another trip next year. starting the planning now.

go and enjoy!

Borderland Beat is reporting that the Army went into Veracruz on Friday and that the Marines went into Piedras Negras on Sunday, kicking down doors, producing a few dead bodies, and freeing a large number of hostages. The hostages were reportedly migrants that hadn't quite made it across the border when someone (Zetas everyone assumes) kidnapped them.

Separately, I am down the road from Piedras Negras a bit and 10 miles from the Border back in the oil patch. We have had the Border Patrol through here quite a bit lately and this morning I had an individual gentleman, pretty well dressed for a guy that has presumably been out in the woods for awhile, come walking down the dirt road that I am on and through the gate that I am at. It's that time of the year when the temps have dropped and the smart folks realize that it's safer to cross now than in the middle of the summer.

There have been a number of very strong "operativos" here in Veracruz with the army now installed at all the entrances and exits (with tents and camps for the soldiers) to the urban areas. We also now have 1,000 state police that failed the "confidence" test who are wandering around po'd at the world and planning who knows what. They were fired two days ago but there will be more joining them because they have only tested 27% of the police force so there could be as many as 50% of the cops unemployed and ready to become full time criminals instead of part time ones when they were on the payroll of the corrupt state government.
There have been more firefights in the colonias, lately and it looks like the death toll for September/October could easily top 200.
On a brighter note, it sure is nice to ride in the peaceful backwoods areas! It's also cooling off a little. Smiles all around!

From the standpoint of riding and being a tourist, I think that the Mexican Feds taking over is by and large a good thing.

Interesting what you would say about the unemployed cops milling around, but in the North when they go cut loose it seems like only a handful became narcos. The rest got "real" jobs. I guess that when you have been bribing a cop then you have trouble trusting them for anything else now that they are no longer a cop, so they have lost their usefulness.
