Yet CBP let's their officers travel across the border. Go figure.

In the RGV many of the Border guys were intrigued with my tales of Reynosa and it was obvious they had never traveled across the bridge. I get the impression that in some circles the Border Patrol guys that go into Mexico are looked at with some suspicions.

I can't remember where I was at in Mexico, but I went through an area like this a couple years ago!

Reminds me of the John Mellancamp song "Just another day," on the Espinazo. Also, gold car conductor is good candidate for a Darwin Award.

Just had a couple of CBP from El Paso come see me a few weeks ago. One of them bought the KLR. They said there was no policy against travel in México. Guess I was a bit surprised.

Interesting! Official policy vs reality ;)

Besides ... Attitudes may change from region to region. I see a lot of comments about the situation in Arizona that simply doesn't apply to our situation in Texas.

Anyone been reading about the incident wherein the Federales shot up a Toyota south of Mexico City that contained US State Department folks? They tried to run a road block. Maybe the Feds need to hire us to advise them that stunts like that are foolish ;)

Nah, that "giant sucking sound from south of the border" that Perot named is actually from an air cleaner.

It appears that the first guys that they encounter were civilians in civilians cars with weapons thats why thery didnt stop and turn around MADRINAS are federales assistants old PRI style that's what was said last night on the national news o well ... MADRINA equivalent to godmothers
on the other hand what happen at the Empire state building was a passion crime I think

Those cops in Manhattan were well within 10' of the suspect and managed to hit 9 bystanders and the suspect firing 16 rounds. Not good numbers for NYPD. Had they been civilians with carry permits the cry for revoking all such permits would be deafening.

Not a good day for PFP in Morelos, either.

Local news is reporting 8 blockades in Guadalajara and 3 in Puerto Vallarta this afternoon since 2 pm. Tractor trailers set on fire across highways to the city. I went to the auto parts district in Guad this morning to have a clutch cable made up for my Honda and town seemed eerily quiet.

If you're going to be going off road you need some humongous MX boots for sure hermano. I recommend Sidi Crossfire for street and off.
