RE: Mayan Temples Trip - Safe?

I'm not sure why, but when rvers have come to visit they are reluctant to ride in my car :h We resemble that remark:) (But we adjusted because you were able to show us so much in a short period of time) You're a good man! I have to admit, I am slowly changing my ways. I'm down to about 120 kmp so maybe by the time you guys return it will be around the speed limit :)

RE: Mayan Temples Trip - Safe?

It's 80 kph on the highway from my town to Monterrey. I drive 140 kph. Keeping up with traffic. I drove down to SMA on Tuesday. It's posted on Hwy 57 between 80 and 100 in some parts. I stuck to 120 kph all the way. I'm not sure why, but when rvers have come to visit they are reluctant to ride in my car :h

RE: Baja Seasons RV Park near Ensenada: anyone? anyone?

Looks like it is cheaper to just rent a cabin. The front row rv site is $35 a night and the cabin is $40. The pictures look great.

FMCA Assist

Has anyone used their FMCA Assist policy? If so, how did it work and were you happy with the results?

RE: D day, June 6, 1944 - where was Mexico

Tepetapan, sorry, I forgot to mention that. I don't know that museum. Looks like we need to visit.

RE: D day, June 6, 1944 - where was Mexico

There are four military museums in Mexico. Museo del Ejército y Fuerza Aérea Mexicanos “Bethlemitas” Mexico City Museo del Ejército y Fuerza Aérea Guadalajara Museo del Ejercito y Fuerza Aérea Puebla Museo Militar De Aviación Zumpango, Edomex Every year I post on my blog and FB about the 201st Squadron. Mexico played an important role just as did many other Latin American countries, mostly in accepting Jewish refugees.

RE: Disclosure when selling

What goes around comes around. Not every business deal is a win-win situation. I look at it from the standpoint of how much pleasure I derived from the use of my rv. They all have had signs of use but it was pleasurable use and I think the buyers could see that. It's nice to be nice and as others have said, sleep well and know that the buyer will be a happy camper.

RE: Alexa and home security.

"As The Post has written, voice-based devices like Amazon's Echo and Google Home are always "awake," passively listening for commands to activate. ... Google and Amazon keep a copy of every conversation. Amazon has not disclosed how many times users have improperly been granted access to another person's recordings." At home, I sometimes use bad language, talk bad about politicians and even say dirty things. I don't want them recorded. I guess I shouldn't care. I have heard Alexa being asked questions and I kind of like it.

RE: Ferries From Baja To Mainland

Great, it worked! I still wonder what's happening with Baja Ferries. We saw them in port when we were in Mazatlan in February. SUV with travel trailer under 9 meters, 10,000 pesos one way.

Ferries From Baja To Mainland

I'm looking at a winter trip from Monterrey to Mexicali and down through Baja California and back to the mainland via ferry. I checked Baja Ferries and it says, "no further sailings". Any idea what is happening with ferry crossings from Baja? Something I always wanted to do and now it appears it won't happen unless I'm not reading things right. Any help? Thanks in advance.

RE: Roaming and boondocking in Mexico

Living close to the border (just south of Monterrey), we have boondocked all over the northern states. Nuevo Leon has some great state parks as well as the state of Chihuahua. We are slowly venturing back into Tamaulipas after years of missing it and the eastern coast of the state. Boondocking is great in Mexico. Not many restrictions and after 19 years boondocking here we can say we have had no issues.

RE: Slow Bridge Crossings

We came back to Mexico last Thursday and a lot has changed at the Laredo Bridge II (coming off I-35). As we crossed I chose the Nada A Declarar lane and an agent began waving his flashlight at us. I stopped and he came out and said I needed to go to the right first. Did that, and it is the new Aduana patio which was finished a year ago according to them. They checked the serial number on the trailer and then we went through the far right lane that has no stoplight and you drive right through without inspection as it has already been done. Not sure what happens with foreign vehicles, ours is Mexican plated. The whole bridge crossing was five minutes and off we went for the Donoldo Colossio Avenue and then on to Hwy 85 to Monterrey and drove straight through the city using the new designated truck route. Nice changes at both the bridge and through Monterrey to Santiago.

RE: Possible cancellation of 60 RV unit caravan

Beautiful places are not defined by country. Unfortunately, boundaries keep people from appreciating the world´s beauty. I'd love to rv in Afghanistan and Iran. They have beautiful mountains and traditional customs. Unfortunately, it's human beings, not nature, that make that almost impossible to do.

RE: Slow Bridge Crossings

Colombia had only one lane open. Long waits are something new in the last two weeks because of changes we can't talk about here. As SideCarFlip said, it is only going to get worse. Yes, Semana Santa does play a role in this. Beaches from Matamoros to Tampico are packed this week as people are avoiding the crossing. I get tired of the endless questions about how I was born in the U.S., why I would want to live in Mexico, about being afraid, etc. So sad that Hispanics along the U.S./Mexico border don't even know their own roots and they are only miles away.

Slow Bridge Crossings

We are taking what may be our last rv to the U.S. We left on Sunday morning and drove straight through Monterrey on the truck route. No issues. We arrived at the Colombia bridge at 12:05 p.m. and made it to the border agent booth at 3:20. After that, it was time to get the visa permit for one. That took another two hours and twenty minutes. Too much hassle with lines, inspections, and harassment. We'll stick to Mexico. Just a heads up to anyone else who is coming across in the next few weeks.

RE: Best route San Miguel de All to Austin TX?

The connector from the Colombia Bridge to the I-35N is Texas Toll 255. How do you pay the toll? From what I remember, they closed the toll booth and installed cameras. You had to buy a pass from Texas Toll Highways. Just curious. We have Mexican plates so we don't need to go through immigration on the Mexican side and drive straight through Laredo. But it would be good to know.

RE: Baja Sunrise

Looks like a great place but it seems a bit pricey. Their monthly rate for beachfront comes out to $30. I wonder if the tent, car and casita camping is also meant for dry camping? That seems reasonable.

RE: The Loss (of our furry friend)

I started the video but couldn't watch it. Not yet. We lost our Little Bit last month. We should be thrilled that he gave us 19 years of his life. He was my shadow. A cat raised by dogs, he would run out to meet me as I got out of the car, hid in my suitcase every time I had a work trip and knew when I was down. He slept by my side every night and became the lap cat I always dreamed of. He was still pretty good over the holidays and we took him on what we knew would be his last rving trip. We were gone for a month and he was the joy of the rv park. He had as much fun as we did. As I have always said, there is a price for loving and it's called sadness. You can't have one without the other. The good news, you end up with the best memories ever that no one could ever buy, trade or steal. They're yours. I hope to watch the video someday soon and thanks Gramps for posting it.

RE: Mex 57 traffic

We have traveled Hwy 57 four times back and forth in the last year. It has gotten worse and for several different reasons, all of which you have mentioned. Our biggest delay was in December on our way to Jalisco. The paisanos were heading back in droves and there was an actual back up of traffic at the Parador San Pedro for miles solely due to the sheer number of vehicles entering and exiting the rest stop to buy food and fuel. The road work is second with the checkpoints coming in at third. The highway has improved considerably and lets hope it gets better unless our new president decides that his austerity program should also include federal highways. The alternative would be the highway from Saltillo to Zacatecas and beyond. They say it adds an additional hour and a half but with road delays on the 57 it could a tie.

RE: Drury Suites Snowbird Rate RGV

I was just curious because a few years back some rvers decided to take that option because of fuel prices at the time. Thanks
