RE: My experience in Nuevo Progreso Mexico

We had a similar experience there a few years ago. Sue was paying for a purchase and her passport dropped out of her purse & she did not notice that it had dropped. The store owner or manager sent a young employee up and down the streets looking for us but did not find us. The next day we went back for a dentist appointment and this young employee recognized Sue from the passport photo and with a huge smile approached us holding up her passport. He got a very nice tip. I am sure it would have fetched a good price on the black market but they kept it in effort to track us down. The store it was left at was the Galeria and they get our business each time we return to Nuevo Progreso. Lots of good folks there and it is always fun to visit.

RE: Does Car Leasing make sense?

I would think it would be less expensive to drive your truck the limited amount of miles you will be driving. By the time you factor in lease costs, insurance for both vehicles, registration for both vehicles, maintenance for both vehicles, etc. Granted its less expensive to fuel a car and easier to get around in some areas. I could not justify the expense of the second vehicle. Good luck and enjoy your new snow birding home. Same here.

RE: No heat in northern home all winter.

Tens of thousands turn their heat off in their seasonal cabins in northern MN. Many do not have basements and that may make a difference.

RE: Pictures?

For those using mifi or smart phones we have data limits and sound just burns up more data. Not a good idea for us.

RE: Home sprinklers.. busted

It's just part of the lifestyle. I'm just happy that I can have those types of problems. Many can not. Very true John.

RE: Snowbird Test the Waters Options?

Try Craig's list under vacation rentals in the areas you are interested in and VRBO may be good too. You should find many park models & mobile homes for rent. Also many are just advertised on the park bulletin boards.

RE: Returning From the Snowbird Season

The trip to & from the snowbird destination can really enhance the experience. Most we know rush back in a few days.

RE: Beware Millenicom

Blame Verizon, not Millenicom, Verizon sells access to Millinicom. Verizon raised rates to Millinicom.

RE: RGV 2015

With nearly 500 parks there are very few where you will need reservations. Just come down, get a spot for a week and see what you like. Be aware many parks are either on business or expressway 83 and can have a lot of traffic noise. I like the parks on S Bentsen Palm Drive just west of Mission. They are away from the highway and near the World Birding Center, National Butterfly Center, Bentsen Rio Grande State Park, Mission Nature Park and paved biking trails. Bentsen Palm Village, Retama Village, Val's Country Coral, Golden Grove, Green Gate Grove, Americana, & Bentsen Grove. Americana usually has early season specials by the week, just ask.

RE: Leaving Trailer In South TX for the Summer

Most just turn everything off and leave. We have done that the past 10 years with our park model with no major problems. Texas will have far less humidity than Florida. You could be asking for a lot of dust if you leave the vents open.

RE: Anybody getting itchy

I'm not getting itchy feet but alas we have to be back in Iowa for a already rescheduled Dr. appointment. I'm told i still have a 3 ft. drift in my front yard. Also my drive has not been cleaned this winter soit will have to be cleaned before I can get into the garage. We got caught last late April with an 8 foot bank across our driveway. This year we made our Dr. appointments in May. Slowly learning.

RE: International Bridge Parking at Weslaco, Texas

All above is good info, but if it is a warm day I would worry about leaving my pet in the RV without AC.

RE: Mexican vanilla-Rooster or not?

In checking the label I see no Coumarin.

RE: Mexican vanilla-Rooster or not?

We like the dark Vanilla with the rooster on the bottle. Have used it for 10 years with total satisfaction.

RE: Canadian Retirees Visa

Many snowbirds in south Texas are paying $200.00 to $300.00 a month park rent and a few parks without swimming pools for less than $200.00. Cost of living here is very low and fruit & produce at giveaway prices. They save enough on heating costs to pay park rent & more.
