RE: Mixed Messages

Almot. The 3 countries agreed to keep the land borders closed. Canada did decide to allow travel to Alaska for US citizens. But the USA did not allow any travel by Canadians to Mexico. Nor are they allowing Canadians in Mexico to cross by land through the USA. Too bad.

RE: Mixed Messages

Almot. I do not understand. Presently neither a Canadian or a Mexican can enter the USA at a land border unless they are essential workers,etc.

RE: Mixed Messages

This has been an interesting discussion. I am amazed that the trolls have not killed this thread. I am sure the Mod. is at her computer 24/7 killing posts. THANK YOU! Borders are in a different world. The agent has the discretion to interpret rules and either allow your entry or send you home. You have zero rights. Although you may find a post somewhere stating that a Canadian was allowed to cross from Mexico to the USA they are either fiction or it was a friend of a friend. Your Mexican status means nothing to the USA or Canada. Presently returning to your Canadian home is a meaningless reason to cross. I can understand Chris's frustration. Mexico has agreed to keep the border closed but the Government needs people to be employed as they provide next to zero assistance to the population. But Chris should consider that most Snowbirds are at or are approaching the age where soon they will not be healthy enough to travel. Many have an investment in a Mexican home or park model. In our case we have a home and a motorhome in Mexico. We have ties to the local community. Once we are fully vaccinated we pose little or no risk to anyone in Mexico. We have both been involved in charitable works in Mexico. If I were there my skills would be put to good use. People in villages need help. Not just material things but support and advice on staying safe. I am awaiting my second Moderna shot and probably will drive to Mexico. I can ship my truck to Minnesota and fly to the closest airport. Crossing into Mexico is effortless. Returning to Canada is a little more difficult. I can fly to Tucson. My truck can cross on a tow truck flatdeck. Playaboy: What would you charge to deliver my truck from Nogales Mexico to Tucson or Phoenix? We should all consider that no Jursdiction in North America has handled the pandemic properly. Just a bunch of bunglers. Here in Manitoba we were in a semi lockdown and as the cases rose they opened things up. Now we are at over 500 a day with Hospitals at their limits. The Premiere is begging North Dakota for vaccine. Very frustrating. In the USA there are many groups and local governments that want the USA border opened with limitations. Canada and the USA share a border where many communities are joined with communities on the other side. Medical care requires crossing a border or driving hundreds of miles. Family members live on both sides. I think we will see things open up a little before the end of summer. In Canada we have a Prime Minster that did not secure sufficient vaccine contracts. He told us we were good to go!! He imposed ridiculous quarantine rules to discourage travel even though those travelers posed next to zero risk of infecting others. Stay safe!

RE: Deleting and Closing A Thread

Trudeau cannot keep the border closed for2 years more.We would become a 3rd world country with no economy.

RE: Ixtapa Trailer Park

Forget the NOB style of rv Park. Too expensive to build with no ROI. I once suggested that the small villages should utilize their school grounds. Most are fenced. The children could provide some entertainment. Boondocking. It would provide some income in places gwhere there are no jobs. Think of Harvrst hosts.The gov. Couldhelp the villages with a small amount of money to get started. FONATUR could advertise. Rv'rs would love it. Dirt cheap and lots of fun.

RE: Deleting and Closing A Thread

Thanks. I forgot about the cost of fuel. But it was partially offset by a weaker peso. There is also the cost of the tolls. Mexico has not been a cheap destination for more than 20 years. We enjoyed Mexico in the early years when every day was an adventure. Where will we spend the night: Pemex,motel parking lot,mechanic's back yard? Will we make it into San Cristobal without overheating the brakes? Will there be fuel before the next town? Today none of the above is a problem. Boring

RE: Deleting and Closing A Thread

The decline of RV travel in Mexico was not caused by one thing. It is and was a perfect storm. In 2007 the economy in the USA was horrible. RV sales tumbled and RV mfrs. were going broke Although there has always been cartels, corruption and murders things became quite bad. Of course the US media was showing this on the evening news. Pictures of bodies hanging from a bridge or stories about bodies dropped into acid baths does not encourage tourism. Certainly RV tourists were not part of the above. But perception is everything. Suddenly Caravans were infrequent. RV parks were empty. Canadians kept coming but they were old hands. Not new blood. Many of the RV parks sit on valuable beach front property. As the owners aged their families were not interested in the business and sold the parks. The Mexican Government was not interested in promoting RV tourism. They claimed that RV tourists are cheap and bring everything with them from the North. ( this is actually partially true. RV'rs especially Canadians tend to be thrifty. I still remember a fellow who used to post here that said he would never pay more than $10.00 for a site. He went on to start a Facebook group and even led some Caravans). Mexico want the farmers from Saskatchewan that fly into Maz, spend a bunch of money and 4 or 5 days later return to Canada. Every week there are hundreds of flights with tourists ready to have a good time and leave lots of money. Today RV sales are out of sight. The mfrs. cannot keep up. But these units are being sold to a lot of newbies. They expect 30 or 50 amp service, sewer and water at every site and clean modern restrooms. The older parks in Mexico do not provide these services. Think of the big parks that used to be in Maz. Most are gone. Houses or Condos sit on those properties. If and when this pandemic ends in Canada and the USA, Mexico will still be suffering. I wont get into the politics but the present President will not be able to handle the unemployment and lack of foreign investment. Recently a survey revealed that a large percentage of Mexicans would be OK with a military government. Hello Banana Republic. When Chris , a long time supporter of Mexico, is showing some disillusionment then things are bad.

I agree.

RE: Canadians: 65+ are getting vaccines now

Silver. My wife and I received a Moderna shot 3 days ago. I had side effects but worth the discomfort. Unfortunately we received no paperwork. Manitoba is thinking about some sort of card but that could take years. Governments are so useless.

RE: Doctor in Rocky Point

You do not need a Dr. Go to any lab and they will do the test. Inexpensive I am sure there are lots of labs in Penasco Just ask at any pharmacy

RE: Extending 180 day FMM Visas

At most immigration offices they will not renew an FMM. People in Kino and San Catlos have to return to km21. Maybe because we are closer to the border.

RE: New Border Regulations

Ed is correct. Instead of concentrating on getting more vaccine these rules are just a distraction so Trudeau will look like a tuff guy. There is absolutely no evidence that Snowbirds are bringing illness to Canadians. Also flight crews are exempt. Now Blair and King Justin want to cause havoc by testing truck drivers. We have already bankrupted the airlines now he will kill cross border trucking and thousands of manufacturing jobs. It is only getting worse.

RE: New Border Regulations

Ed White. You will find this hard to believe but I LOVED your post. All of the do called rules that Trudeau is forcing on us are ridiculous. If one is flying then a proper test at both ends and quarantine at home are as good as anything Trudeau is implementing. Same for those at land borders. Many snowbirds are at an age where they worked hard and have had the snowbird lifestyle for many years. Why should they give that up and be too old to travel by the time we are vaccinated. We may as well be living in North Korea. There is zero evidence that these border regs. do any good.

RE: Border crossings about to get even worse

The large poles with a sort of bridge on top are not xray. They are Gama ray. When I do cross border trucking I go through them often. You cannot exceed 5 mph. Mexico has a variation of that device. It is truck mounted.

Border crossings about to get even worse

https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/border-baja-california/story/2021-02-16/dhs-xray-border If I have read this article correctly at some point every car a nd RV will have to be scanned. I can see lines of many miles and days of waiting!!!

RE: New Border Regulations

I think if you are 1500 or like u?s over 2000 it would require you to have the test when you are say half way home. An extra night in a motel or your RV just before the border might be needed. Would be so much easier if Canada would allow one of the quick tests

Monoramblee: How true. Just leaving the house to buy groceries can be stressful We mostly just stay home.

RE: New Border Regulations

I doubt there are very many people that will be flying to Canada with the new rules. It will be interesting to see how they will handle land borders? Im Manitoba we have some citizens that live close to Minnesota? They are far from Canadian health care. For years Canada has paid for them to get care and meds in MN. But they still have to quarantine when they return. Trudeau has refused to grant an exemption? There are no facilities on the Canadian side to handle a Quarantine. Most are seniors and this has been difficult.

RE: New Border Regulations

Does not include the USA but flights from the USA will only be at certain airports. Vancouver, Calgary,TO and I think Montreal. I would imagine that departing flights will be limited to those airports. I often wonder who and how these rules are dreamed up. Very confusing and there will be unintended consequences. Neither Canada or the USA has figured out how to handle the 300,000 truck drivers that cross daily. These drivers should be vaccinated starting Monday! I drive part time in the summer. Most of the time we are in our own little bubble. But truck stops are not hygienic and many hundreds of traveller's enter those facilities. There is also 50,000 persons crossing daily to work in either country In the USA many people are maskless. So in one week close to 2 million drivers cross as compared to a possible much smaller group of vacationers. The Governments are afraid of affecting trade as well as the food supply of both nations.
