Well, I finally made it to Mexico. I entered through Eagle Pass and I had a 2.5 hour delay there. Not because of them, but because my children had toooo many games with them and they had to figure out what I had to pay. I then paid the $90.00 (us) and was off. The ride was pretty smooth. There was one problem that I encountered in Monclova. I saw some military beside the road and they were looking like they were ready for something. I then drove another few miles and I saw that there were 20 or more Federal Police and military at a Pemex store and they waved us on through in a "you better get the heck out of the way" kind of wave. I am sure it was a random kind of thing and as I was raised in New Orleans, I thought very little about it. I am not sure what was going on but they were definately about to do something. I didn't stop to find out. Other than that, we had no problems and what I expected and what I encountered were two different things. The military did a good job of patrolling and I am sure that helps a lot. I just wanted to let everyone know that it was a safe trip. Thanks again for everyone's advice as to where to enter. All the advice was much appreciated.
