RE: Realities of Mexican insurance

Not all states in the US, if any, require comprehensive coverage. Only 3rd party liability and medical is required and my guess is that it probably wouldn't satisfy their clause. And the OP would have needed comprehensive coverage for his claim. Comprehensive is usually required by the bank if you have a loan. I don't know which insurance I used before, but I do recall something about a requirement to keep your current insurance active. David Agree, was only talking about Liability Insurance as required Insurance. You are only required Liability in Mexico as well. Myself, I have too much to lose not to have Comp. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Casino Route to Quartzsite

I don't know if it will be on your way, but the RV park at the Pechanga casino in Temecula is among the nicest parks we have ever stayed in and a very good value. The local wineries are fun too. Too far South!

RE: Casino Route to Quartzsite

Cabazon, CA. just West of Palm Springs on I10. From there you will be in Quartzsite the next day. Get an early start so you can pull the grade East of Indio, CA. early the next morning. Parking is in the rear lot behind the multi story building. It is surprisingly quiet! rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Realities of Mexican insurance

Not a problem in the USA. Most if not all States require an active USA Insurance policy in the State where the vehicle is licensed. If you should drop or let your insurance expire, they deactivate the license tag. When you try to activate your tag, there are penalty fees added. AND the fee is added again and again annually until brought current. A non-op can be provided but it has to be before you insurance expires or is dropped. Even then some states will still add fees. We keep insurance on all vehicles even if they are not driven. (One of our largest retirement expenses) rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Ferrocarril Chihuahua al Pacifico

We rode the train as passengers in '07 from Creel down and back up. Stayed at the Pink Hotel on the Cliff, Posada Barrancas Mirador. http://hotelesbalderrama.com/mirador.htm and http://www.hotelmirador.mx/ Trip of a lifetime! We left the RV in the then KOA Campground in Creel and took the First Class train. There were three trains then, the Local (Least Expensive & most crowded), a tourist train for tour groups and the First Class (nice, not overcrowded with music & wine bar) rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

50% Discount in Federal Parks could Disappear!

AquaDawg post this on the Escapees RV Club Forum, "HR5204 has passes out of committee. It will allow the USFS and BLM to charge access fees to all visitors, as well as allowing a concessionaire to give you a senior discount for whatever amount they want. Please get the word out... http://westernslopenofee.org/index2.php?display=yes&pageid=34 http://www.westernslopenofee.org/pdfuploads/HR5204_WhatsInIt.pdf Page 5 Lines 8-13: Deletes the prohibitions currently imposed on the Forest Service and BLM from charging fees for parking, picnicking along roads or trailsides, general access, dispersed areas with low or no investment, driving through, walking through, boating through, horseback riding through, or hiking through Federal recreational lands and waters without using facilities and services, camping at undeveloped sites that do not provide minimum facilities, and use of overlooks or scenic pullouts. HR 5204 eliminates those prohibitions and replaces them with a single prohibition on fees “For any site, area, or activity, except as specifically authorized under this section.” Since “this section” authorizes fees for anything, that prohibition is meaningless. Page 28 Lines 11-15: Senior and Disabled passes would have to provide some discount on campground fees, but the amount of the discount is not specified. Currently they receive a 50% discount. That would likely not be continued, since the concessionaires hate having to give it, and would likely be replaced with a lesser discount and one that would vary from site to site, day to day, and season to season. regards- David" Here is a link to the topic, http://www.rvnetwork.com/index.php?showtopic=112561&hl= rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Travel from seattle to chicken alaska

Chicken has a Airport to Nowhere. Like the Bridge to Nowhere they wanted to build with Taxpayer $ but stop, they were more successful with the Airport. Millions of dollars spent without any need of service. Looked like a nice Airport as we rode pass on a Tour Bus. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Naco, AZ

when we visited Naco, Sonora, january 2012, it was a sleepy little town with little or no gringo amenity. Customs house was quiet. The american customs agent there gave us good directions to a good place for lunch. Exchange rates for $ to Pesos with the proprietor took some fun time. We made sure she came out on top. It did have a very long border wall with many border patrol agents about. We enjoyed the lack of englais border sales people. I doubt it is as peaceful or as safe today. I can assure you nothing has changed for the worse! rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: "Crystal Basin" campgrounds (CA)

Has been more than 20 years since I camped and 4x4 in the area. There use to be very nice camping around Loon Lake. Very very Scenic! There use to be dry camping / boondocking just North of Loon lake at the beginning of the Rubicon Trail. This is also one of the routes to Bucks Lake which is East of Loon Lake. The drive up from 50 is easy. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Where are you heading this year?

Mexico/Baja! Time & destination yet to be determined. Maybe one trip or two! Long term forecast for MOST of Southern USA is cold & wetter than normal so we will be out of here. http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/predictions/long_range/seasonal.php?lead=5

RE: Palm Springs to Paso Robles options?

10 to 15, 15 to 210, 210 to 5, 5 to 126, 126 to 101. The 126 dumps you out in Ventura by-passing LA traffic and Oxnard into Ventura traffic. Agree also but you can now pickup the 210 off the 10 in Redlands. Much easier than traveling further in to the 15. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: US101 vs. I680 thru SF bay area

Thanks for all the replies. I looked at the map closely, and the logical route is the 101-880-580-101 route; seems to make the most sense. I guess it must be right, 'cause that's what Gerty Garmin tells me, too! :-) Good choice, my office use to be downtown SF and you want to avoid if possible if just passing thu. If stopping for a few days, of course you want to visit the entire area. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico
