Another hotspot in the recent past was San Fernando, Tamaulipas, and we'll be taking the loop around it later this week enroute to Cd. Victoria which has had its own activity recently.
I rode solo into San Fernado for fuel last July without any issues. Will post up here during the upcoming trip. We have already agreed to stop for anyone waiving guns in the air.
FYI: if you require premium fuel in the San Fernando area just stay on the loop for the Pemex there. The stations in town had only Magna.
