    What are the easiest border crossings and safest driving routes to Lakeside? I live in Albuquerque and DO NOT want to cross at Ciudad Juarez., but would prefer not to have to drive hundreds of miles just to avoid it (if possible).

    If you already have your FMM visa stamp (from the consulate) and importado certificate (purchased online) do you even need to stop at the border crossings? Or do you stop at the Aduana checkpoint 20 or so miles beyond the border?

    And which route(s) SOB? (preferrably on toll roads).

    Hola!!  i thought I was banned from the board for a while!   jajajaja, glad to be back.

    Sorry, I regret that I forgot to make my salient point regarding those fotos from SF 1967, at a time when rock music crowds were just starting to grow.  That crowd was estimated at 30,000 in Golden Gate Park, SFs equivalent of NY Central Park, very large.  

    The sound equipment that you see in those fotos is only slightly bigger than what I have personally seen in bars and very ill-conceived "rock concerts" here in this area!  With an audience of maybe 25 people!  Do you see the problem???   There is NO reason for anyone to have such large equipment in such a small venue, plus it is a lot of work to lug that equipment around for measly one-nighter gigs.  That demonstrates the complete lack of knowledge of sound equipment in this area which is a major factor in the noise problem.

    One day, when I am so inclined, I would like to post some individual examples of the quite unbelievable noise I have personally had blasted into my house.  This has never been a theoretical, cultural debate to me!  It's more a matter of survival for me and other neighbors of affected areas.  If many complaints are received by Chapala police and office of Reglamentos, they will get tired of the complaints and do something, sort of, ojala!!  As I have stated before, there has been some improvement in the Plaza B gym and El Barco situations.  We can only hope it continues and that people have come to their senses.

    Please do visit the FB cruzadacontraelruido page to stay updated and informed on how many Mexicans Really Feel about the noise.  You can make and send videos of a noisy event to them at the time of occurrence.  Dr. Gabriel Garcia, who turned me on to all this, tells me that this organization has a protocol to contact law enforcement at the time to hopefully do something.  A meeting was held to lay out certain protocol for amplified music equipment in commercial venues, including bars, gyms, and evento places.   An avalanche of complaints might help the noise makers see that their excessive volumes are actually hurting their cause.  

    You're right. I use a 15 watt tube head with a single 12 " speaker cabinet. Plenty loud for a lot of indoor venues. Marshall stacks are really a bit passe IMO. I sure wouldn't want to be trucking those around to gigs anymore. From what I've noticed , more always seems to be better in the volume dep't. But then I'm 62. There was a time when I too thought that louder had to be better.
