When are you going to be in the area? We have a Texas Boomers rally Memorial day in Johnson City that will be a great time.

BTW...while in the Texas valley, you can get the mh washed and waxed for less than $100.
Maybe you can get the PG's worked on also.
Jim

Never planned on going south of the creek. I was only interested in the border towns on our side. We're leaving 5/12 and will be in the Houston probably around mid June. You'll have to try and enjoy your rally without me.

A bunch of the Texas Boomers are in the Houston area. So let us know where you will be or need any questions answered. I am in NW Houston (Cypress) area.

Thanks Ken and Jim. I haven't even looked yet at places to stay.

I'll look you both up before we get there. I figure I'll be staying there for about 4 days before we head down to the Rio Grande/Mission area.

Cliff

This really has nothing to do with your question or plans however....

Arizona recently passed a state law that makes it illegal to be an illegal (alien that is). The President of Mexico got outraged.

Now.. If I (An American) were to head to Mexico illegally.. They would arrest me and toss my sorry behind in the nearest slammer. However they encourage their excess population to head north, passport, visa, work permit, or not.

What I would do is stay on the US side of the border, but send Mexico a letter saying "If it's illegal for us to enter your country illegally, why do you want the US to accept those who LEAVE your country for the US illegally?"

For this reason I'm staying.. HOME.

If you let us know what area of Houston you plan on staying/visiting we can probably give you some recommendations on places to stay.

Ken and I are both on the far north side of Houston, for what that's worth.

Actually look out highway 290 to the NW for 25 miles from downtown for me. A really nice place on the north side is Rayford Crossing in Spring, Texas. Out the NW is Traders Village, but have not heard much good of lately. If you want to head to the South, we'll have to get some info from folks down that way.

Not entirely factual, it's almost impossible for a Mexican to come to this country legally. It takes years and costs thousands of dollars. It's even difficult for Mexicans to get a visa to visit the US. As opposed to Cubans who just have to be lucky enough to touch dry land to be legal. Bush proposed a uniform immigrations policy that was shot down by his own party.

Yes there is some paperwork involved if you want to stay in Mexico long term but it's not very complicated or costly. There are a lot of Americans living in Mexico, Never heard of anyone being "tossed in the slammer" over immigration.

It's not my intend to start a war here but just to correct some misconceptions. We'll be in Puerto Penasco on Monday for a biker rally.

There is a post on escapees: http://www.rvnetwork.com/index.php?showtopic=83497 concerning two RV hijackings in MX recently. It says the two couples are Canadians.

Thumbs up Gee I guess I was lucky

I drove down to Merida Yucatan last November and drove back from there last Febuary. I had only one problem with a Mexican cop who hit me up for a "fine". I had a great time there withing thirty minutes of the beach great restaurants good shopping not a problem one.
The drive back was in the rain most of the way and the GPS didn't work half the time but heck I was heading north how hard can that be?
I got a bit nervous when we got close to the border as there is always an element around border towns that are on the look out for easy pick'ns....
Got my documents turned in on Mexican side got inspected on the U.S. side was camped by six and fed by seven on the U.S. side .....
Guess I was just lucky Huh?
Of course I had my two dogs and sister with me and we know a little spanish.
Or maybe it is like Daddy said "the good lord takes care of fools and drunks and he's awful busy"

We have been in Rocky Point for the past week. No problems at all here. I did talk to one person with a caravan from Phoenix. There were suppose to be 34 coaches in the caravan, however, 17 of them canceled out of fear that their might be reprisals over Arizona's Mexican law. Several people joked about pulling off their plates at the border. Mexicans are not vengeful people. These people depend on tourists for their survival. They truly appreciate your coming down and spending a little money. That way they can put food on their table.
