Well, I've read every single post ever made on this thread and I'm still not exactly sure what I'm doing when I head south. Ask anyone who's ever ridden with me down there. But I sure have a good time and have enjoyed making lasting friendships with a number of great guys.

Mexico has always required that I unwind my tight arse a bit, lighten up and be more gracious towards others than I'm normally inclined to be. It's good therapy.

So is this thread. Helps me get through the in-between times.

Thanks guys.

That really depends upon if SR needs me to bring his (BIG) pile of boxes to the Riverwalk. If not, then the GS (or the Rocket. But not the KLR)

I have a border question for y'all.

I will be selling my home in Mississippi in the future and am strongly considering renting a house in Mexico within the next year. While it will be my only permanent residence, it would by no means be where I am at all of the time. Probably 50% of the time at the most. I like most of you, avoid border towns and generally spend no longer time there than I must, but I have a dilemma of sorts. I would like to be within a one day ride of Dallas, TX, plus I would like to have access to the US Postal System. Yes I know the USPS sucks, they lost between six and eight weeks of my mail earlier this year while I was in Central America, but I need them for prescription drug deliveries and a few other things.

Anyway, it appears that Ciudad Acuna south to Nuevo Laredo might be logistically within the area that would fit my needs. While I worked in Piedras Negras many years ago, living there was never a consideration, so I really know very little about the finer points of such an undertaking. I would probably handle all Mexico business in someone else's name and simply be an occupant in the house. That should make things a little bit easier!

I am very interested in hearing the Pros and Cons of the various towns along the border. Oh, I would also want to live across the border from a US hospital.

Thanks!
