  1. We were on that by pass 2 weeks ago but on tour bus so not sure where you would turn off to go to potsi.The same highway going west is no where near finished.Only going east.toward SAN LUIS POTSI.tHE BUS WENT THROUGH NOT TURNING UNTILL WE MUST HAVE BEING WELL PAST TURN OFF FOR POTSI.
  2. We were on that Highway 2 weeks ago but it was on a tour bus.Do you know if there is a map of bypass? It was finished going east but not sure of cut off to head toward San Luis Potsi?
  3. We crossed at PHARR and it was great very few trucks and the roads have 1 and a half lanes easy passing We have being here just over a week now and quite nice --I was surprised by how MOUNTAINOUS Mexico is and I must say Mexico must be the SPEED bump capital of the world.
  4. I will look for it tonight and reply if any thing is seen
  5. I got to tell you --We crossed at Farr just a few days ago and it was great We missed the Reymosa bypass but it was no problem.It is a great drive .Some things that caught me by surprise was Speed Bumps--They are every where when you enter a small town and the speed goes down to 40 ks definetly look for these monsters. I sure you will find Mexico the worlds SPEED BUMP CAPITAL OF THE WORLD. We are lake side San Juan Casalls and between here and Chapala (( klos) away at least 50 speed bumps so beware.Also I never knew it it such a mountainous country---It really is....Another experience --Iwas passing a truck and did not notice a speed limit sight saying 40 klos and drove by a police officer --Sure enough he turned on his lights and pulled us over I thought the worse but He looked at the drivers licence pointed at speed odermeter and said in Spanish slow down.and said have a safe trip. And I was actually still doing 80 in a 40 .Even in Canada a definetly a big fine.
  6. Is there a limit of liquor that you can bring with you over the Mexican border from texas.--I have not seen anything about it

  8. thank you rv gringo we are doing it this year.I would like to ask about customs and immigration because we will need our tip for the car--Would it be best to go over for the day trip and get that stuff out of the way??
