Pharr is a good, easy place to cross.

Thanks Ace, it sure was easy 1 1/2 yrs ago and that's just the way I like it.

I saw this shirt today at the Harley shop. Reminded me of Schizzman!

Why I was at the Harley shop?

TS
Pharr is still fine, however most of the locals cross at Anzalduas now...that is south of Mission, this way you miss most of the Reynsa traffic.
PM me if you are in the Zacatecas area.

You won't regret it.

I'm flying out of Mexico City Tuesday afternoon, BTW. A day later than planned.
PM me your schedule.

Radio

Thanks to all who listened and commented...I love doing it and will try to get in requests...we have an amazing music library for a little community owned station in the middle of freakin' nowhere... The job itself is like circumcising elephants...it doesn't pay much...but the tips are enormous.

PM me if you are in the Zacatecas area.
If you're heading south, use the Pharr bridge. The bypass is open, 7 pesos will dump you out on 97, just north of the aduana checkpoint. Just cross the bridge and keep going straight south. Don't get off at the highway intersection.

If you're headed towards Monterrey, Anzalduas will keep you out of traffic, but there's no convenient money exchange places. There is one at the Soriana opposite the highway intersection, but their rates aren't great.

"Dump you out on 97" is right! Watch out for the extremely slick blacktop
where the bypass connects to 97. Even when dry it's very slick.
