You don't happen to have coordinates for the campsite from the first night? I see you got the 60csx on there.
Yeah, the checkpoints reminded me of the border patrol checkpoints in AZ - if anything the border patrol guys were more serious. I passed through three military checkpoints and one Policia Federal checkpoint without any issues at all. The Policia checkpoint was a random spot two officers had setup and they were out in the road with automatic rifles, but they just politely waved me through.
Coordinates for Canyon de Guadalupe: N32 09.233 W115 47.299 Check it out if you get a chance. I'd go back.
