Here are the topics of the board;
sure doesn't look like there is much problem in Baja. I just drove the entire Baja a couple of weeks ago ( in a red Hummer H2 no less, which is the ride of choice for the higher up drug gang members).
I live here and have for 21 years and have many friends here. I tell you it's reasonably safe. But listen to Meck the guy afraid to venture into Mexico, he knows the conditions here real well.
Oh and for you Meck please stay out of the Baja - For God's sake please stay away it's a war zone here I tell ya. So many heads rolling around in the road it's a hazard driving.
