Re: be cautious traveling to Juarez

Hola! What a coincidence; I grew up in NE off of Hondo Pass and graduated Irvin in '73...left the area in '95. Was actually living in Clint area by the time we moved...great little community. Still have a few friends/relatives in the area, but many, like us, have moved. I haven't been back in at least 20 years, but my wife goes to visit every few years or so. Most of the people I care about like to come here to visit which suits me perfectly!!

Small world, eh?

Re: be cautious traveling to Juarez

I was born and raised in El Paso; when I was a kid, the family would drive over for cheap cokes and groceries (60's); when a teenager we would go across to drink and party with friends (70's). As a younger man, many of us had propane conversions & tanks on our PU trucks for fuel because you could get it in Juarez cheap; fill up a 100 gallon tank for $30 and drive all month (80's-90's).

I left the area for work reasons; moved to DFW, then Corpus, then San Antonio, now Seguin. I tell people the only way I would cross the border now is if I was tied up in the back of someone's trunk... :lol: (but true!)

JMHO
