Getting Across the Mexican Border
Me and some friends are planning a trip to Mexico to try and bring some gear over. I was wondering what the best way to get it over would be. PM me.

Let me tell you little story son.
Once upon a time, in a land that looks almost exactly like this one, only governed by MUCH more leanient bodies, we used to jump back and forth across that little line we call a border like we were gettin' paid to play hop scotch.
Once, while being too hammered (back when we thought 50 D-Bol pills went well with Mezcal) we actually left about $1,500 worth just sittin' up on the loft of the Motor Home as they came aboard to check inside - yeah! ($1,500 was alot back then!)
BP/Customs Officer comes in, looks at our Test / Anadrol Bloated selves with our Dew Rags, Tank Tops, and Spandex (Yeah, way back then) and just snickered as he asked what, why, the usual.......we were freakin'.
He proceeded to look at the only two places large enough to hold a human, looked back @ the left out stuff, smiled & shook his head, wish us "Good Luck" and a "Safe trip home".....True Story - Sware.
Now, as in like 3 weeks ago - My Wife and I went on a little trip to which I nonchalantly included our Free Dealing neigbors to the south.
I'm gonna try to bring this to a close, but it's actually the Looong part of the story. Even though I'm alone with my wife, a good 30 lbs. lighter, and not near as hard as I was "back in the day" and packed down with tourist stuff, they picked us out of the line of cars like they knew already,(and they may have) and for the first time in my life doin' this, Here We Go!! (Oh Sh#%*T!)
I didn't even decide to actually shop until the last pharm I checked, 'cuz w/ the exception of the Sus pre-loads, I couldn't verify crap, it had been 10 yrs since I was serious about this, and almost every label has changed, or is new altogether.
So, this was a first (Praise God!) for two things, 1. Getting pulled over into the secondary search area, and 2. Seeing someone make it through guilty!
In all my prior years, I'd never been picked for a stage 2 search, and without exception - now lets be clear on this - WITHOUT EXCEPTION - Everybody I had EVER seen have this happen to them, that actually had something on them, had it found. Now I'm sure you can make compartments that hide the new welds, and are to thick to X-Ray, and the mirrors don't catch - Whatever - I know it happens every single day, and you probably won't even get stopped, all I'm saying is "it aint the good 'ole days" down there anymore!
I was there for 45 minutes, as they tore into every knook and Crany, orafice and container. They actually touched it! YEAH! I have NEVER been so scared - Ever - life as I knew it was a heartbeat from over, and I got away.... you may not.Talk to someone (maybe a Mod, I dunno) who knows FOE SURE from RECENT Experience, how to do this Before You Go! Don't Wing it! It aint worth it. Good luck.

ya man dont be foolish and bring it back yourself. A good idea though is to pay a mexican to bring it back across for you. Works like a charm, they are just happy to make a months pay in one day. And dont drive down either they look for Americans to bust on the border.

Just do like the mexicans do it. Go in legally (If you can walk in). And come back by jumping the fence. Mexicans do it EVERYDAY, I'm sure since alot of them don't get caught it could be cool. Don't do it unless ur certain your a good runner.

Hope i'm not giving away any secrets but the best place to do all your mexican dealings is in Loredo, Texas. You can get anything you want across the border in loredo if you have the cash.

I imagine a tourist bus that takes trips across (mostly carrying seniors I belive) would be a pretty safe bet too.

Now what really sucks is when you get your shit across, and once you think your free and clear in the states your buddy busts out the gear just to check it out again, then 20 miles down the road at the border patrol check point they tell you to pull over and then check your car and find all your shit. That sucks

I'm sure they though that we'd think all was cool and have it out gockin' at our new candy!
IF you make it across, keep it where it was successful until you're home!
Tip: Now I have never done this - Ever - But my friend went IN one town, drove many miles, & went OUT another town, he said they stared at him when he left, but barely checked him going through.

when in mexico
when u go down to mexico go about 20-30 km into mexico. its a better beat that your getting good AS and its cheaper. oh and i think u can get human grade alsobut u might have to pay a doctor like 200 pesos for the prescription for anything u want doctors offices are usually located right next to or across the street form farmacias. but as for me i take my own car and put the shit in the box for my 3 12" subs. or if u wanted to u can send it back through mail it ussually taakes 2-3 weeks though so u can take a big risk by trying to get it over urself or u can take the safer route by mailing it to yourself non-registered mail of course.
I did want to go to mex to hit a few pharmacys but now I am
totally Disanchanted by the whole Idea.

Sorry, but probably not the smartest thing to do and tell everyone you put your gear in your speakers...

Yeah they got me. But i still had an ace up my sleeve. If anybody has questions, PM me. I don't want to give it away. Yes, but it was at Nogales and they profile big time. College age kids and big guys. Too bad we aren't the real dangers to America. What ever happened to looking for terrorists or border hoppers?
