Safety in the Northern Mexico States
Hi Everyone,
I just bought all the mapping for Northern Mexico. I want to travel through the countryside in the border states from Sonora eastward to the Gulf staying out of the cities.

I get it that there is a drug war on the border but I am guessing it's in the big city border towns.
I haven't heard of tourists being harmed.

Can anyone help with some travel information for the northern area that is current.
There are many national parks in these Mexican states and I hope to camp.

Can anyone help?
I have traveled all of Central and South America plus Russia and Mongolia west to Europe so I am an experienced traveler.

Fellow Wisconsinite....

Not sure if this helps but there's a few active threads on this subject right now over at ADV. Everyone seems to say away from the major cities is perfectly fine and the violence are typically only subject to those in the "game"

Hey Bill,

No I live in Milwaukee, but I'm a Colby so that's where the name comes from. You planning just ridding the northern states or down in Copper Canyon Etc?

Here just need to weed through the trash talking:
