The normally bucolic, vacationer-crowded state at the tip of Mexico's Baja peninsula has become a battleground, with dozens of killings in a power struggle following the capture of drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman nearly a year ago.
The bloodshed has been concentrated in La Paz, the capital of Baja California Sur state. In the latest killings, two men bound, gagged and showing signs of torture were dumped onto streets in exclusive neighborhoods Sunday and another person was found shot to death Tuesday.
The local newspaper El Sudcaliforniano, which puts the mounting death toll in each headline on stories about violence, has reported 46 homicides in and around the city so far this year. That doesn't include the apparent shooting victim on a La Paz sidewalk Tuesday. Federal statistics through October counted 48 killings for the entire state.
Baja California Sur is better known for its beaches and Los Cabos resorts that draw thousands of American tourists. But since last year it has experienced a level of drug violence it had previously been spared.
Interesting how we talk about Mexico and yet, have learned to accept this: United States cities by crime rate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

That’s not to mean one shouldn’t ask questions from people who have been there, experienced travelers, but I think we need to put the media and reality in perspective.

You should have no problems in Rosalito. Many Americans and Canadians have homes there. No real reason to stay in the right lane when going thru the border. I assume that all you will be carrying are personal items so you have nothing to declare. I have passed thru the border many times with and without items to declare and have only been stopped once then they waved me thru. You will pass a couple of military check points and they might want to inspect your trailer. They are only looking for guns and drugs. They are very polite and no need for you to be concerned. They most likely will ask your destination and where you are coming from. Nothing to be concerned about. Have a nice trip.

Thanks for the advice - especially TinCan -- with an Airstream that is our home, we have the usual electronics and personal items, a refrigerator, some produce, some vino, and a cat. Nothing boxed up and new that would look suspicious. Will proceed in the Nothing to Declare line and get my FMM and hopefully be off. I will report back if anything of interest happens!
