Every morning in SoCal, I hear about a half-dozen murders, hit-and-runs, and assaults where people die. Tell me again why I need to be concerned about Baja?

Cue that dude from Kansas who never goes to Baja to come in here all excited, hoping this dissuades others from living it up there.










P.s., I'll be there tomorrow while you are counting corn stalks, Kansas.

Be Afraid ..................


Be very afraid ?

THEY are going to get you !

Does anybody actually pay attention to these State Department warnings ?

They're like the PSAs aimed at those who just ignore them and act stupid, anyway.

Cleaning up (to a tiny degree) the gene pool.

The third-world will always be a dangerous place.

Along with a lot of domestic urban environments.

It's safest to assume that every stranger is up to no good until you know different.

Better yet, if you can, stay home.

Order everything needed online. Groceries included.

Let the delivery guys leave before you go outside to pick up the packages.

Watch the Travel Channel and Nat Geo to see all the places you're better off staying away from.

Be safe.

Grow up, little man. Either let yer kids be teens, or go play with your boy-toys; you can't do both. :fire:

How come you gotta flame somebody ahead of time? Do you realize what a bozo you present yourself as? Do you have a hard-on for said prairie dweller? Sure seems like it, Jizzy BOY.

Went to Culican, Sinaloa just before Christmas. Had a blast and never once felt in danger. But I did hear plenty of gun fire on New Years Eve in San Diego.

A friend of mine owns Backstage Bar. We went down to see his band and check out the city. Went to a Tomateros game, ate incredible food, and met some wonderful people. I will go back for sure.

I don't understand why some people always think the worst will happen.

What happened to your sense of adventure?

Don't let the old fogies watching 24x7 news channels tell you how to live.

Those are the people didn't have a sense of adventure in the first place....

( and they could very well be jealous of folks that do )

If the State Department doesn`t issue this warning, and some gringo gets it, some employe gets slapped on the hand. They are doing their job! Is there something wrong here?
