Hi Darryl; My wife and I will be in San Miguel in Mar. so meeting up is probably out of the question. Have you been before? Copper Canyon area is absolutely beautiful, and the trip through Parral, Durango, and on to Mazatlan ( Devils Backbone) is a must not miss! Crossing at Presidio Tx is a good crossing point for that route,if that is what your doing. The border crossing is small and less confusing than some. The Three Palms Inn, in Presidio is a good place to leave your pick up or car,unless you are riding the trip,so much the better.
I'm sure others more informed than I will chime in. Mexico is a wonderful country with great people. Treat them with respect and you will receive in kind.
Enjoy. Neil W.
