I'm in Dallas. I'm wanting to get West and I'd like to see Mexico too. How can you freight hop to Laredo, now with the troops and the walls? How does anyone?

No walls yet but you might be better off going through California/Tijuana. The Texas border can be sketchy as fuck (depending on where you are crossing of course).

I see. I heard there were troops. I have no clue if I would go somewhere with soldiers to cross a border. And what if they check the trains thoroughly?

Try Cali. I've never hopped the border, but I AM a former soldier and I've got friends from my time in active duty who are now in the national guard of various states. I've got a bunch of buddies in the Cali guard/reserves, and they're all pulling out of the border; thankfully that governor has more sense than Trump and deems it a waste of time and manpower to keep people stationed there. Texas seems sketchy at the moment. I'm personally in Arizona now, so I'll reach out to some military people I know here and see what their take is on it later.

I've crossed in San Ysidro, Matamoros, Laredo, Juarez, and Los Algodones.
Algodones is easiest. I just walked right in, no one asked me anything. Went straight to the ABC bus station (Mexican version of greyhound) and bought a ticket. Been to nearly every state in Mexico that way. American side just IDs you and digs through your bag when you come back by foot.

Would you recommend getting to Yuma?

    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $100.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
