While On the subject of poo,there are people in S.Korea who believe it has medicinal benefits.. Funny what kind of crazy sh*t one finds on the net Also known as fecal transplantation and it is performed in the U.S. and many other developed countries to help regenerate the good bacteria in the intestinal tract.

RE: Gap year, family of 6, TV and TT recommendations

Regarding cargo capacity. I see an rv as an airplane and a piece of luggage. How many rvers weigh what they take before loading it? It's simple using a bathroom scale. We do this when we travel because some discount airlines have a limit on luggage weight. We weigh ourselves on the scale first, and then with the luggage. Why? It can be difficult to balance objects and clothes on a scale. It works every time. Give each person a weight limit of what they can pack (you're not going to a fashion show) and if they are over they need to find a way to reduce the weight. Same with dishes, pots and pans, and most of all, water. If you're going to use rv parks and campgrounds with hookups, don't take any water except for drinking. A 40-gallon freshwater tank means 320 pounds of weight plus what you have in the toilet. It all starts to add up. People take way too much stuff that they never use. A lot of full-timers say that after the first year they do a review and.end up eliminating stuff.

RE: TIP problems

They took our permanent import papers (pedimento) and ran them through their system. . Are we required to carry our pedimentos? I was asked for it once returning from Belize but never again. That officer checked my vin on his cell phone and let me pass. It's hit and miss but they have always asked us for it. Once, a SAT official scolded me for having the original and said that if you had the plates and the registration (tarjeta de circulacion) no one but SAT should be asking you for it. I have a color copy so that the seal appears to be original to the undiscerning eye.

RE: Another good road report

Hwy 57 is getting worked on and is much improved. Lots of new concrete from Monterrey to Laredo. Lots of new fuel stations too. We were in SMA over the summer and yes, the 57 is much improved. Lots of infrastructure going up around the south end of Nuevo Laredo. With all the overpasses it looks like they are making some faster connections to the border. Great report.

RE: TIP problems

My post was about some strange fear people have about stopping at the border and doing their paperwork. There was no bashing in my post. The U.S. does a good job of scrutinizing border crossers and I think we should follow suit. I think it's a shame that we don't. My post wasn't meant to ruffle feathers.

RE: Deceptive traffic citations

Reminds me of the famous speed trap in Selma, Tx just outside of San Antonio.
