    My brother and dad were bored so they went to Nuevo Laredo yesterday. To me that sounds like a crazy idea unless you need medicine or dental work you can't afford; at that point it makes sense. But I think they are crazy I know people who have lived on the border all their lives and don't cross anymore due to safety concerns. And this comes from someone who routinely travels into interior Mexico, Colombia, and Ecuador. Any thoughts from fellow brave clutchfans?

    I've been to boarder towns a lot years ago but I would not go today. There are way too many stories.
