RE: Huge Earthquake Mexico City this is no joke

I do not turn this into a third world disaster, there is a lot of damage and those buildings that you mention that were constructed after the 1985 quake are in did standing, the only problem is that a lot of them have damage cracked walls, unstable columns cracked floors some may have to be torn down, my brother in law, wife's brother built the big black building on Paseo de la Reforma the Bolsa de Valores de Mexico and today he has spent the day helping to asses the damage to some of the newer buildings, he is an architect he just got home and we spoke of the damage and the magnitude of the quake, yes the new laws helped a lot to avert the damage hundreds dead instead thousands but stating that it came out beautiful is totally wrong, the epicenter was a lot closer than the one in 85, plus the waves are magnified by the mud in what was the lake of Texcoco and those waves tend to bounce around, if I felt it in Ciudad Satelite that is out side of the lakes shore, we are on top of "tepetate" that is harder than concrete, there have been 26 after shocks we have not felt a one. This quake was caused by he subduction plate that runs from the Pacific and flattens out and then starts to descend more or less where the Popocatepetl is located and then it plummets down to the mantle, there are going to be more of this quakes, Mexico needs to adopt the same standards as Chile and Peru when it comes to construction of buildings and houses for that matter, whether you like it or not there is corruption in Mexico and a lot of shoddy characters so are we going to have collapsing buildings yes that is a given, I do not sugar cote anything I tell you the way it is, not speculation no innuendos have lived, worked and studied in Mexico for several years and have also dealt with the government and it is more corrupt today than 40 years ago! navegator

RE: Huge Earthquake Mexico City this is no joke

My niece has been preparing first aid kits and hygiene toiletries to distribute for those that lost their homes and those not allowed in to the dwellings until being checked, there are buildings that are still coming down, one office building collapsed with every one inside, my niece's cousin helped recue 18 survivors from that building from yesterday to two o'clock today with no food just some water the poor guy is exhausted, everyone is helping in some way. You guys in the USA pass the word along that there are going to be a bunch of scammers looking for donations for the disaster victims hurricanes and quakes, make sure that the donations are made trough legit channels. Who ever said "the city survived beautifully" needs a reality check, there is a lot damage, not only in Mexico City but in all of the adjoining states and major cities as well as small villages. navegator

RE: Huge Earthquake Mexico City this is no joke

As of 09:00 AM Mexico City time 229 dead and 50 buildings collapsed in Mexico City alone and hundreds damaged and an enormous amount of wounded persons, the hospitals and clinics are treating the less severe wounds in the patios and streets or parks. The other States also have dead, I do not have a count or how much damage to the structures, it is going to take some days to appraise the magnitude of destruction once the authorities reach the small towns and villages in the outlying areas. navegator

RE: Huge Earthquake Mexico City this is no joke

Sat down to have lunch at my favorite restaurant around the corner and the quake hit, it started with mild shaking and then came the first jolt, and the shaking got stronger, it kept going and then a second stronger jot and harder shaking went on for a good 40 seconds or more, strongest I have felt in Mexico or California, even the 7.2 from Calexico did not feel this strong, we live in Ciudad Satelite so it is hard rock, sister in law has sisters that live in the shaky part of town, they stated that they could not get up from the chair and the furniture was dancing around, a lot of damage more than 100 deceased, still assessing damage, waiting for after shocks. The house that the wife and I have is solid not even the knickknacks in the shelves moved, just the ground noise a very low rumble very faint as the waves came through. I sincerely hope for the best and God bless all the poor that have lost so much with the hurricanes and quakes, I am to old to be of any help otherwise I would be out there helping rescuers, otherwise I will need the help. navegator

RE: Possible Fuel Price WHACK In November...?

The refinery at Salina Cruz had some damage from the earthquake and was running slower, the government announced after the hurricane and the quake that there would be no shortage of fuel, famous last words now they announced that there might be some problem in the supply of fuel due to the hurricane in Texas, Veracruz and the quake, this translates to "pay more per litro" at the pump, fuel prices have gone up about one peso per litro at the pumps in Ciudad Satelite al ready. New gasolinazo on the way you can bet on that one! navegator

RE: Refused entry with a truck & camper

All pick up trucks in Mexico are considered cargo carrying trucks! From the little VW pick up to the Ford F-550, witch is not sold in Mexico! All vehicles with an open bed in Mexico are cargo carrying trucks for tax purposes, The ford F=150 in Mexico is not designated as an F-150 it is called a LOBO, that way they skirt the tax man. So the small VW pick up truck how much cargo in weight do you think that it can carry? The VW truck probably does not weigh more than 3600 pounds, and it is a CARGO CARRING TRUCK! it is used for commerce in Mexico, at a certain point they see a truck wit an axle in the back with four tires, that rings a big bell and all hell brakes loose in their heads, caching, caching, impuesto (tax). Why don't they let it in, the paperwork for importing the cargo, the camper shell will be horrendous, it is not a MOTORHOME but cargo, it probably will take them a couple of days to figure out how much importation fees to charge plus you will need a broker to do the papeleo, am I of the beaten path NO not at all been there done that, in the late 60s The University of the Americas in Cholula, Puebla purchased a language lab form Germany, the equipment sat in the port of Veracruz for more than one year, all because one misspelled word in a 76 page document! I had to wait more than a year to install it. navegator

RE: Refused entry with a truck & camper

That is exactly how I get to that site, type dof.gob.mx and you are at the Diario Oficial de la Federacion navegator

RE: Refused entry with a truck & camper

You can find all the information pertaining to the Laws, Regulations ETC. for all of the Mexican Government entities at: Diario Oficial de la Federacion. Internet address is: dof.gob.mx You can even download the Laws in PDF format. Pick up trucks are categorized as cargo caring trucks and not personal vehicles, therefore you have to pay tax on the cargo, a camper shell is cargo and not a motor home, this is the interpretation given by the Aduana and if you pay the tax you can go in, read the statutes in the Diario Oficial de la Federacion. navegator

RE: Refused entry with a truck & camper

I have found a very interesting situation. Reading a legal document in Spanish and understanding the meaning and interpretation of that legal document and then: Reading the same document in English as translated by an internet translator, the English translation coveys a completely different meaning and the interpretation is wrong. That is where there is so much confusion in some of the "investigations" and "research" and specially in the interpretation of the documents. You are not going to find many of the laws and regulations pertaining to laws and specially from Hacienda, that is why Mexico has more lawyers per capita than any other country, you need to have a lawyer interpret the laws, my immediate post above says it all, more than two years and we are not even close to having the title to the house cleared. navegator

RE: Refused entry with a truck & camper

They are focusing on PICK UP TRUCKS only! Nothing else! That is when they check the weight of the PICK UP TRUCK! They do not care if it has a CAMPER SHELL on it or not it is a PICK UP TRUCK! Big MOTOR HOMES they could care less what they weigh, they are not PICK UP TRUCKS! navegator PS the big letters are not shouts I do that to emphasize the words.

RE: slide outs

Some times when you have a cog and a rail, the cog will jam on the rail when to much pressure or the button is not let go but they keep over cranking, this can cause a parallel unit to go out of sink and cause binding or bind so tight against the rail that it will not start until dislodged by a push. Check and make sure that the mechanism it self is not loose, motors, rails and all hardware associated with the slide operating mechanism. navegator

RE: Refused entry with a truck & camper

My wife and brother in law inherited a huge house from my Mother in law in Mexico City Ciudad Satelite, it is now more than 2 years since we started the process of reading the will and taking legal possession, I can not believe the ineptitude of the government, it is a miracle that anything gets done! But you have to accept the way they do things, otherwise the great grand kids will be doing the "tramites" at least 75 or more years in the future from today. Asi es la vida, la vida loca! navegator

RE: Gasoline And Alcohol New Regs

I will definitely stay away from the gasolina but: I will definitely drink a good Tequila or a good Mescal even a good Pulque Curado! I have noticed that my toad runs different with fuel that has alcohol in it, sluggish and drinks a lot more fuel for the miles traveled, never tried a gasoline buster or octane booster, wonder if anyone here has any experience with those? navegator

RE: Refused entry with a truck & camper

Yes all MOTORHOMES are built on truck chassis, that part is correct. The confusion is: The USE that the truck chassis is given. Truck chassis with a motor, a cabin and a "CARGO CARRING BED" are commercial vehicles. or is it a Truck chassis with a motor and a CABIN that is a HOME, as is Motor home "vehiculo recreativo" does not carry cargo, although there have been a few used by the narcos trying to cross in Tijuana none made it. You are getting confused by the weight of the unit, you need to focus on what the unit is going to be doing, and a "pick up truck with a cargo bed" regardless of what is on it is a "cargo carrying truck", you will not be carrying sand in your motor home, or pigs to market are you? But a pickup truck with a camper shell is caring cargo, the camper shell is the cargo it is not permanently attached to the truck or the bed, that is the difference. Your Motor Home is purposely built on a truck chassis, it is not a commercial vehicle, a pickup truck with bed is. Can they de imported to Mexico? Yes you can, and the importation fees and taxes are very steep, or you better have some good connections in the government and are good at greasing the cogs. What purpose of use does it have? Cargo carrying or living house? That is the confusion, PURPOSE OF USE and there is where the weight comes in for the pick up trucks. Small Ford F-150 Etc. are considered personal vehicles not really commercial vehicles, not enough cargo capacity. navegator
