    Bbond,

    Do you know what time taxis start to become available at the pedestrian bridge on Saturday mornings? If I get on a bus from Nuevo Laredo to Monterrey early on Saturday morning when crime is still asleep it would still give me time to drive to Laredo, TX (park my car) and taxi from the bridge to the Nuevo Laredo bus station and still make it to Monterrey around noon which gives me time to check into my airbnb and start mongering in the afternoon. This give me (at my age) time to have a few experiences Saturday. I could then take the bus back from Monterrey to Nuevo Laredo later on Sunday say around 4:30 pm which puts me in Nuevo Laredo around 7 pm. Since Sunday is a family day in Monterrey, mongering does not pick up until around 12 but some low end spas are open earlier. The drive back to San Antonio from Laredo after 7 pm is easy enough for me to go straight to sleep and go back to work on Monday very alert. This is about the same level of mongering that I would do even with 4 days off in a row. Because taking the bus from San Antonio and back wastes allot of time and does not give me any mongering time for those whole 2 days that I ride the bus. This could be a very discrete (on the down low) type of trip. This would keep me happy while still working in San Antonio where I make good money.

I could also do the same with my wallet (keep the most valuable one in my luggage and a minimalistic one in my pocket). These types of robberies have also been noted to take place during the Christmas holidays and summer vacations. Robberies during Christmas season also occur in San Antonio. The news also note that young men are also at risk due to possible cartel conflicts and assumptions by the robbers. There was one story from inland Mexico where fed up passengers actually killed to robbers and one died from getting beaten to death. The passengers did not get in trouble for that.

    You want to take Senda or Del Norte. Just do not ride the bus late at night. Go early in the morning, you will have no issues. Go walk around the Downtown SA or Houston, you are much more likely to run into trouble. The Cartels are not going to mess with the buses, 95% on the bus are poor this would bring unwanted attention. You can not live your life in fear.

I can see how taking a bus directly from San Antonio would be much safer since that one does not stop in Nuevo Laredo and the odds that a criminal will be on that bus are very low. I guess I will scratch the option of boarding a bus in Nuevo Laredo out for the time being.

I will make it a project to travel light this weekend to Monterrey and then take trips to Monterrey by parking my car in Laredo and taking a taxi to the Nuevo Laredo bus station and back. I could see myself going on a Friday evening and returning on a Sunday afternoon. I also downloaded an app called moovit that allows me to ride the public buses in Monterrey so everything is becoming much easier in order to hit all the spas that I want to hit on the down low. Thanks!

    Sorry, about the delay, work is getting busier and I had to have a tooth pulled, so was out of Monday and half a day yesterday. Thank you for the PM, I will be back in MTY, in late March. One more trip to Moscow then too much work. Yes, I have been driving to Laredo and taking the bus, but hopefully never again, yes stress free, but way too much time. At least an extra 1.5-2.5 hours, or more. Not for me, I will just drive. I am careful and will not make the drive after 10 pm, by that.

    The normal plan will be to stop and play golf in SA, have dinner on the River Walk. Drive into Laredo Nuevo, and stay at the Holiday Inn Cheap, safe. Leave early 5:30 am, then no issues driving.

    In the spring and summer I will be rotating between Tijuana and MTY, winter months Moscow. No time in the summer months, for long trips. I like MTY only for the girls. City is okay, but not my favorite, but for now fits perfect for my lifestyle.

All 3 of us are happy now, he has the trophy wife, I am free, and she gets to keep her channel of money streaming to her family in Colombia. All 3 of us get along too. Not like I hang out with them but occasionally when a relative passes we talk a little.

    I am way overdue for a trip to NL but have a stable of local biker women / groupies that pretty much keep my old ass in check. Costa Rica was my last full blown trip in 2012. Have been to NL several times since as well as several trips to some of the underground places. What fun Boy's Town used to be. That was absolutely the best bang for the buck. Drive 2 hours and shoot fish in a barrel. KosherCowboy is living the life, traveling the globe doing cannabis research and trying to make sure that no brothel remains on his bucket list. We still talk online occasionally.
    I remembered his last name right after I made my previous post but it's impossible to find him now, there are over 900 people on linked in with his name. If I knew his birth date I could do a been verified dot com on him but that's only if I knew his birth date. That's good to hear that kosher is living the life your doing well. It motivates me to possibly make a change, maybe work for an international company that keeps me traveling out of the United States. Monterrey has grown so much and now days they have high profile engineering positions through international high tech companies. Thanks.

    Yea Blourgus was the guy who introduced me to boys town in Nuevo Laredo back during the days when you had your Nuevo Laredo boys town army yahoo group. He lived in Austin at the time like I did so we were able to hang out from time to time as well. He also introduced me to Monterrey. He was very smart, very daring (fearless) and a great writer. I remember his first name is Terry. If you remember his last name, please send me a PM so I can try doing a search to find him. I remember during the last times that I saw him he felt very strongly about moving to India. He was a world traveler and said that he would love to move to India of all places. He also had a relationship with a girl from Mexico who seemed to be the type to marry a gringo and move to the United States. I recently became a United States citizen around 2 years ago so as a green card holder I felt limited and I remember that we stopped talking after he found out that I wasn't a US citizen at the time. Speaking about that, how did your relationship with the Colombian girl turn out? I remember that you were getting a divorce but did she lose her green card and move back to Colombia?

I used to have a friend named Blourghus who used to be very active here many years ago. He used to drive his car to Nuevo Laredo, park it in the parking lot next to the bus station and take the bus from Nuevo Laredo to Monterrey and then back to Nuevo Laredo on Sunday, pick up his car from the parking lot in Nuevo Laredo and drive back to Austin. Blourghus disappeared and I assume that maybe he got married to a Mexican girl and fixed her papers, maybe he has children now. I could see how that would work well if the parking lot in Nuevo Laredo can guarantee that cars would not get stolen. It would be easy for me to do that and spend short weekends in MTY from time to time. I worked in MTY for a few months about 10 years ago and I liked it but as in any job, work conditions can be very uncomfortable. I currently have a very comfortable office in San Antonio.

    Anyways, I hope you got my PM and if you want any more info like links to blogs or chat rooms or a link to my google map of MTY spas, please let me know and I will be looking forward to your answer regarding the bus station parking lot or how you park your car before you take the bus to MTY.
