Currently I'm going towards Austin, TX and plan to continue into Mexico and further south. I do not have a route fixed so I'm flexible in terms of crossing into Mexico. Safety being the primary concern, does anyone have any recommendation on where would it be best to cross (and especially any info on the northern Mexican states). As mentioned, I do not have a fixed route so any crossing from the Gulf all the way to Pacific can be considered here.
im not from the northern mexico but maybe you should try cross in laredo tx a then continue to Monterrey or another route its on el paso tx and continue to chihuahua and torreon... but you will have to detour a little bit... i would recomend the second option...
Thanks for the post and info. I was doing some additional research and in the end opted to enter into Mexico in Ojinaga and continue to Chihuahua. From there I do not have a route planned, but probably will go to Torreon.
