Re: What are my options . . . .

Here's what I'd do if I had to drive north right

1. Wouldn't wash my car for at least a week (two
days here would probably do it).

2. Would fill up with gas before I stopped each night, not as I started out each morning.

3. Cross at one of the major crossing; Nogales, Laredo, etc.

4. Wouldn't start out early in the morning,
but would wait until traffic on the cuota was fairly heavy - lots of local traffic and semi's for example.

5. Dial 066 on my cell phone (everyone who drives in Mexico should have a Mexican cell phone - charged up and with lots of minutes every time they get in their car) - if I even suspected
that I'd been targeted. Watch for mile markers
along the way so you can supply an approx. location.

None of these things would guarantee a safe trip,
but if you have to drive they might help.

Buen suerte!
