Now that I've Got that out of my system----"TANKS for the WARNINGS"
Response in general(as I come to it) Although you have given me a lot to think about, and some changes. Let me point out that altho I am looking for a place to settle. It is lay of land, climate, and social clim I am looking for. not a house or abode at this time. (about a year) so this will be sort of a purveiw of the situation for later decision But I am looking to settle in native areas rather than an expat anclave
Aside from Guadalajara airport, (and Cuidad Victoria,) I intend to stay as far away from bigger cities as is possible, driving side roads, etc. I'm 77, but I have been driving about 69 years, and I am no slouch-- I drove from Newberry Springs, Cal to Oklahoma city, and back on just over 50 hours, last year. and by myself ( that's abput 2200 miles) and I have only been involved in three accidents. two occured while I was standing still.. I am a defensive driver, and those slow lanes will suit me just fine.
I have been reading other accounts, and if possible, I will be sleeping in my car as much as possible _obviously in safe areas. otherwise in "Native" Hotels. ( These are things I will learn as I go along) As for time. I can take as long as I need.
(to ED and Fran This ain't a vacation, it is more like a quest)
REX. There are numerous meanings for the word "tope" Stop. Barrier, bumper, Limit. etc. Which one do you mean??
In any event, I'm one of those "fools rush in (slowly) where angels fear to tread" types, and you've given me much to think about.
