RE: Chiapas Agua Azul Park Has A Problem

The river has been redirected acording to Excelsior News paper, the water falls are now as they used to be, so we can continue to engoy them. navegator

RE: C's less trouble than A's ?

One item that the C class needs to be researched before you purchase is how the overhead cab is srtucturally constructed. My C is a Coachmen and the whole unit has a frame made from aluminum tubing, this also applies to the overhead, most units are sometimes framed with wood and eventully that part starts to move over time from the forces excerted by the bouncing of the weakly supported cab portion nailed insted of welded and inproperlly engeneered structure, althoug I have seen bad engineered units with cracked and poor welds, the cab portion should be constructed as a long span bridge with vertical anchor points. My unit is a 2001 a I am diligent about redoing the caulking seams once a year, it is cheaper to do all the seams at once, only leak was when a bird stuck the center marker light and shatered the plastic, that night we had a small leak, replaced all the marker lights next morning. I have had more trouble with the water heater (replaced new), the refrigerator (replaced cooling unit new), air conditioner it finally quit (replaced new), after all this years the fuel pump gave up, that was replaced by the Ford dealler in Sanra Fe as they say they will have to take my RV from my cold body. At 24 feet length I have axcess to more places than a lot big A classes, for me the parks that only take A's and no C's or are big resorts with idiots in them boasting how many millions they spent on their modified grey hound buses are people not worth my time, I prefer to spend my time with the coyotes, snakes and critters rather than a bunch of snobs. navegator

SCT route planning in Mexico

There is an APP from Secretaria de Cominicaciones y Transportes SCT to help plan you route from point to point. SCT has created an App for travelling in Mexico, it calculates distance,toll costs, time and fuel, It calculates point to point, climate conditions, hazardus areas, emergency services, gives mechanical repair shops. Two separate routs are calculated, one secure road and an alternate road with general descriptions and one with more detail. It gives points of inerest, rest areas, tourist cities, gas stations, emergency services, stores and more. Mappir is a free application for the smart phone, down loaded from the AppStore or Goog Play or from: http://ttr.sct.gob.mx/mappir. Mappir can also be axcesesd by Twitter, Instagram or facebook, it appears as "*mapeando México" I just found this, I do not have a smart phone, maybe some of you that use these places can check and see if this is something that can help you travell in Mexico, you might have to learn some more Spanish. navegator

RE: Stop Guesswork Different Banks Different Tipos de Cambios

Mexico and Mexicans adopt technology and medical procedures a lot faster than the USA, even the campesino has access to the tecnology, the Secretaria de Educacion is implementing a program for the idigenous people where they will teach the children in their native language first, then as a second language Spanish and third language English. Before leaving for the USA I gave classes in English at a Preparatoria from the Instituto Plitecnico Nacional, at that time there were 6 electronic microscopes in the world, extraordinarlly expensive, one in the USA, one in France, one in Germany and Mexico had the other 3 at the Instituto Politecnico Nacional, Scientist from all over Europe and the States requested time slots to use the scopes, and were granted time, they were happy to have the use of the machine even if it was at 02:00 Sunday morning, they did not have to go though the paperwork and time consuming permits of some Governments and months waiting for a time slot. There are alot of people that think that Mexico is a third World country, they do things a little different but it is in some aspects a lot more advanced than some first world countries, Mexico had the first vertical high speed steel oven in the Americas the other two were in Sweden and Germany. The immage of the indio taking a nap against the cactus under the sombrerro and zarape is a Hollywood mith, Mexico is very ancient and very modern at the same time, travell to Mexico, engoy the scenery, the food, the culture, the people. Asi los dejo, me esperan unos tamales para el desayuno (I leave you now, there are some tamales waiting for me for breakfast) navegator

RE: Boxing Training Kit?

When you contact the boxing club ask if they have anyway to help you, on the winter coat call some of the department stores and good will stores, they might have something, some times second hand stores have clothing items that are new, that folks do not want. Good luck, nice of you and husband to do this. My grandma had a saying, it in Spanish. As el bien y no veas a quien. (Do good and do not look upon who.) navegator

You are absolutelly right OXYCODONE is the devils drug, as soon as you can take what is left to the nearest Police Station, do not flush it dow the drain. I hope that the pain goes down real fast, best wishes on your recovery, I would send you some peyote buds or some mushrooms, but I just came out of surgery a little over a week ago, I think the anesthesiologist has the goodies and he did not share, best of wishes. navegator

Latest from Ecelsior Periodico Gazolinaso end of year

The latest news from the Director de PEMEX: As written in the Excelsior Periodico Nacional, PEMEX claims that there will not be a Gazolinaso for the end of the year, anyone that has lived in Mexico long enough knows the the opposit is what will happen. On the same write up further down they comment on the fact that there might be a price "adjustment", since the country had to import fuel from Eurpo and Asia at higher prices, due to the refinery in Salina Cruz having suffered damage by the hurrycanes and the earthquakes, and they are now beggining to restart the production, also did maintenance and installed two new turbines for electric power. So knowing Mexican politicians and how they double talk, we will have a stealth Gazolinaso. navegator

RE: Chiapas Agua Azul Park Has A Problem

The latest on Agua Azul, the locals decided to drege the left side of the river after the quake moved the river to the right, thus bypasing the left side that goes to the falls, they are afraid to loose the tourist business and have taken matter on there own, they are doing this with picks and shovels wading in the river, the government so far has not done much to apease the locals. navegator Source is Excelsior Periodico mx

RE: Chiapas Agua Azul Park Has A Problem

The lattest study from the gealogist have determined that the 8.2 quake diverted some of the waters from the river and are looking for a fisure that may have oppened and alowed the water to seep into an underground cavern. Time will tell what really happened, the ammount of water did drop a lot. navegator

RE: Trip Report Nogales to San Carlos

The definition of the beloved TOPE, known as speed bump, some are made of a steel rounded bar, steel tube enbeded in concrete ramps sometimes very steep, most are made of concrete, the most anoying are the half round metal ones, depending on how they place them when you hit them they can really rattle the vehicles, the worst that I have come across are the three rows of the metal ones, with 4 inches of spacing between them and the second row just behind the spacing of the first and the third in line with the first. If you hit these at anythig more that one mile per hour you will need to do a front end alignment, they really slow vehicles dow, some of theese topes are hard to see, even in daylight a tree shadow can hide then, they normally should have yellw and white stripes, since they were painted in the previous century, the paint is no more. When nearing or traversing towns slow down, for some odd reason they place schools next to the roads and the famous topes to indicate a crosswalk or school. Be alert be aware or the tope will get ya! navegator

RE: Gas Fuel pumps (Ford)

One sign that the pump is going out, loss of power going up hill and you need to crank it to start longer than usual until it has enough pressure in the delivery rail, we crawled up the steep incline in to Santa Fe from Chama at maybe 8 miles per hour on the side of the road, pump was replaced at the Ford dealer in Santa Fe. navegator

Be very carefull pulling large quantities from the ATM's, try not to do it at night or machines that are to exposed, before you insert the card wigle the card holder, if it moves do not use, it has a fraudulent card scanner, go to another bank, it is also a good idea to have two people to shield the sceen, they have found a few hiden small tv cameras aimed at the key board with the bougus readers same as what they do in the USA, crooks are crooks any were. navegator

RE: Colonial Cities and big RV'S do not mix

Best way to visit the Colonial Cities using Google Earth and maps type RV campground when you are parked on the City, it will point to the location of the park if there is one, not always dead on the spot but close, try to figure how to get there with out going in to town with the RV, and after you are settled take the toad to explore, it is advisable to go by taxi or public transport, some Cities do not have parking lots, you need to park were ever you find a spot and walk, that is the best way to see and explore the towns. navegator

RE: Colonial Cities and big RV'S do not mix

Horses are very inteligent, my uncle in Sweden had potatoe patch on a hill, the tractor could not handle the slope too steep, the Clydesdale had no bridle just the collar to pull the potatoe rake, at the end of the west rows we had to lift the rake and the horse would go 90 uphill until the rake cleared the row and would back down to start the eastward uphill row, the rake had two wheels, did not need to tell him anything he did the whole operation with out having to tell him anything. We also used the hay wagon, that one could turn on its own length the horse would walk sideways until he pointed in the direction that he came in, beautiful horse we only used verbal comands or had signals if needed. For Christmas time we used the sleigh, the horse loved pulling the girls, they cheated my aunt would give the girls apples to bribe him, we also cut the emergency fire wood in winter, work sleigh and horse to pull the trees out, can not do it in Summer to boggy. The horses name was Thor. navegator
