I've driven to Oaxaca, puerto escondito and zihuatenejo every year for the last 10 years. Sometimes down the coast going inland above veacruz to xalapa then oaxaca. Other times towards SLP, Morelia... We used to cross at Reynosa than started using brownsville/ matamoros. Both routes take us through a lot of wide open nothing. This year things seem a lot scarier. Thinking I might not do Mexico this year. I have a ford f150 with an 8' bed and cap. In the past people have looked at my truck like a piece of meat. Don't want any trouble on the road. Odds are I would be alright but I'm not thrilled.
Just crossed in Nuevo Laredo heading to Oaxaca with my family. Everything good. More check points than ever. People are definitely more cautious. In Guadalajara now.
Don´t drive at night and stay on the toll roads and don´t make eye contact.

My finace', the kids, and I had a Thanksgiving trip planned to Veracruz to see friends. NO way we are giong now! We even have a "2nd hand" store in the east side of Reynosa and now are considering shutting it down and moving it to the US. Our lives & the kids lives are not worth the good money we are making!
