RE: Car hits MH head-on in Carver, MA

Simple electronic solution: Phone(s) off engine starts and runs, turn a phone on inside the vehicle a small inboard antenna senses the phone(s) signal only in the vehicle, not out side signals and the engine computer immediately sends an aural warning that the engine will shut down in so many seconds and pull to the curve immediately or turn the phone off. navegator

RE: Flash flood in AZ

Out West unless you are very familiar and know the road as good as your hand, NEVER, NEVER ENTER A WASH THAT HAS WATER FLOWING, specially muddy water the flash flood can and does erode the pavement and the culvert tubes and leaves a channel that can be several feet deep. It can also rain in the mountains several miles away and bee perfectly dry where you are and have a flash flood go through the wash and sweep everything away. Pay attention to weather reports and signs and also seek local advice, those of us that live out west know a thing or two about flash floods. navegator

RE: Entering Baja California 10-Year Tip Required Now?

The law in Mwxico for a foreign registered vehicle to enter is to have a T-emporery I-mport P-ermit (TIP), for all of Mexico including Baja Norte and Baja Sur, since it is a peninsula there is no other outlet other than going back the same way that the vehicle came in to the Bajas, yes you can board a ferry at La Paz and go to the mainland, but the proper paperwork should be available at the ports of entry in to mainland Mexico, big fines and confiscation of the vehicle will probably be enforced. Can you drive both Bajas without a TIP? Yes unles you have an ocean going RV to cross over to the main land. In regards to the P-ermiso M-igratorio M-ultiple (PMM) "people visa" that is mandatory in all of Mexico, including both Bajas. With the hostile environment in Washington DC towards Mexico do not be surprised that the laws governing the Temporary Importation Permits will be enforced in a stricter manner rather than the lenient way from the past years going to Baja Norte and Baja Sur, on the contrary they will become stricter and border inspections will be thorough and tedious checking VIN numbers and very detailed customs inspections at all border crossings. Mexicans are proud people and do not tolerate insults very well, so the individuals at the border check points will react by making the crossing harder, they do not care about the gringo turista and their rolling mansions, they have been offended, not a good thing. navegator

RE: Entering Baja California 10-Year Tip Required Now?

No it is not a sanctury,the two States are some what exempt from customs duty it was done to help the econmic state of the citizens of the two most neglected territories, Baja Califirnia Norte and Baja California Sur, and tourism was a good economy, until the narcos came along and scared the turistas not just the Gringos, French, Germans, Dutch, in the early 90's the border crossing at San Ysidro wold have anywhere from 8,000 to 12,000 French, Germans, Duch crossing in to Mexico monthly for day trips to Tihuana, that is with out counting those arriving by plane directlly from Europe to take guided tours down Baja to San Jose del Cabo and leaving also by plane from Los Cabos. The area North of the Mexico and the U.S.A. border is the Alta Califirnia today known as the State of California USA. since the two territories where isolated by water from the mainland the turistas could not escape but have to return, only way out was through the Sate of Sonora and thus the most corrupt customs agency is now operated as the Aduana de Sonoyta. If FMM's and TIP's (person visa and vehicle permit) are requiered to traverse Baja it is a law that has been in the books for a long time, the changing political attitude is now begining to shape conditions at the borders of both countries, the best we can do is adapt and follow the laws of both countries. navegator

RE: Entering Baja California 10-Year Tip Required Now?

The way around Tijuana is via Tecate, it is on State highway 94, you can go from san Diego or from Interstate 8, from Tecate you go South to the rest of Baja, paperwork can be obtained at the garita "booth" in Tecate, from there to Ensenada is a nice drive. navegator

RE: Beware of the 2017 Trek of the Americas - Adventuretrek

If this is the same individual or company that is advertising this 2017 trip, then by all means make sure that those that are not aware are told of the shabby enterprise they are about to get into, from what you mention if the guy collected the bribes to give to the customs and police, he was fleecing all of you for trip money. Travelling in a caravan gives the tourist safety in numbers and NO border agent is going to request a bribe, should there be a complaint there are to many witnesses against them, same with the police there are to many that know the truth of the incident. navegator

RE: Beware of the 2017 Trek of the Americas - Adventuretrek

Been travelling, living, working and driving on and off in Mexico for more than 55 YEARS never paid a bribe, so let me translate for you what you see or hear: Guys with machine guns or AK 47's that ask for money in any form = NARCOS Guys with M16's or AK 47's, = "Police or Military", not all are honest it all depends. Guys in grey uniforms with M 16's = Marines, yes Mexican Marines! The "Mexican Marines" have my utmost respect since they are the only ones that have not sold themselves to the dark force. Yes there is corruption in Mexico as there is in any country, there is corruption in the United States as well from some Government individuals, the only difference is that the Police forces in the US are paid decent salaries, some of the US politicians on the other hand are bigger crooks than the crooks them selves. We need to look in our own house for termites before we get all scandalized about the neighbors house having termites. navegator

I would cover the fire pit with the tarp, then It will really be dry as opposed to it having some water in it, unless you are having steamed rice? navegator
