We drove back and forth via Laredo in July (Bridge II), then back out through Piedras Negras to Texas (and ultimately Canada) in early September.
For those travelling through Texas area crossings, my "Bible" (guru, guide) is a guy who lives in Nuevo Laredo, works in Laredo (so is a daily commuter at Bridge II) has inlaws in Monclova, and works as a lawyer for the transportation industry in Texas. He posts on Mexico Connect and really knows the situation so well. Hi screen name is Altahabana. Whenever we travel in border areas I always ask to see if there is something I should know in picking a border crossing at that particular point in time.
Here is a recent discussion advising a person heading to Bucerias via Laredo. I contributed to that thread as did Altahabana. (I am careyeroslib). Hopefully the person asking will report back as to how it all went for them in their trek to Bucerias.http://www.mexconnect.com/cgi-bin/forum ... t=48086436
Hope this helps.
