Iím feel safe wherever I go.
One reason is I am not in denial of the danger that exists and do my best to understand there are high crime areas.
The other has to do with having the proper permits to carry solutions.

There will be more Deans who continue to play games with their safety, you may be one of those who want to pretend Mexico is safe. If one were to believe the post on here itís all good to go there. As usual on here if anyone disagrees they are attacked as you are doing to me. I just think for those considering to go there it should be said to think hard on that decision.

Just want to point out that there are undoubtedly safe places in Missouri, just as there are safe places in Mexico. Just need to do your research. And, unlike here, random school, church, theater and mall shootings are pretty much unheard of in Mexico. There, itís usually gang on gang or gang on authorities, only rarely, with an innocent bystander caught in the crossfire. Just as there are places I wonít go in the US, there are places I wonít go in Mexico. Doesnít mean the whole country is a war zone. And, BTW, thatís why the US State Department lists travel safety info by state for Mexico.

I have a bazillion cable channels and right now there's these playing: Dateline, True Crime, Cold Case, Forensic Files, and Corrupt Crimes. All shows about murder and mayhem in the USA. Most are unsolved murders. Watch a few and you'd know you don't need to leave the USA to see savagery. Some of these murders will never be solved and some bodies never found. And there is a bunch of 'em. Sound familiar?

My two cents

I think when the OP posted this he wasnít wanting to start a heated discussion on crime any where. He was thinking about his friendís life. A life that is now over.

IMHO it would be respectful to him to start another thread if want to continue the crime discussion.

Thanks for that (IMO) spot-on observation and thought.

I'm saddened by this update. @TahoeJoe (and all friends and family of Dean) please accept my heartfelt condolences.

(Authorities on both sides of the border are involved and there's a serious official search happening. There is evidence of foul play, enough that there are fears that he has been kidnapped. I'm posting anywhere I can...please keep your eyes out for this rig and/or this man...his name is Dean, and he spends every winter in Baja in this rig, he is well known in the area. His home is near me in the Tahoe area (Markleeville). Thanks for reading!)

This is from the original post, with a later update that describes how things got worse. Not sure if you read this thread.
Everyone is concerned and sad about Deans death, itís also relatable for people who camp.

There was a story of a newlywed couple at an Utah campground being murdered, those two ladies werenít bothering anyone in the world but theyíre now gone.
I so wish someone wouldíve made them aware of the dangers out there.

Tragic for the family of the man who disappeared. Nuff said
