RE: Gas prices

I use the Gasolina MX app when I am on the road. It is fairly accurate.

RE: Immigration crack down

It is not a question of having a good time that can be had anywere, it is a question of the drug pushers in Acapulco, Cancun, the Rivera Maya, Huatulco , Los Cabos, Mazatlan, ETC,ETC. These joung ladies need to understand that mixed open drinks are easy target for the ruffy croud (date **** drugs) and the best thing to do is order beers un-opened, give each lady a small bottle opener and have them refuse any beer bottle that comes to the table opened and any bottle left open at the tabe unatended should be considered compromised and do not drink it and above all do not drink anything that is offered in an open glass or bottle by a stranger. Am I to extreeme, yes I worked with and for a police department and I have seen the devastation that drugs do to the individual that uses, the immediate family, the community in general. I consider schedgule 1 and 2 drugs weapons of mass destruction. My friends at the FBI, DEA and Police Officers all agree with me. Be carefull and above everything be safe, a good time can be had. navegator Navegator, I agree 110%. Roofies are still prevalent in the area. The young ladies just have to be smart and cautious with their drinks. Other than that they should have a blast

RE: Immigration crack down

OK, Playaboy, from what I hear on this forum, you do things like the following: first picture this -- four girls about age 20-21 who have just finished their mid-term exams at the University of NC at Chapel Hill and are chomping at the bit to have some fun in Cancun. But grandma has been elected to chaperon them by their parents. This is their winter break from college in January. I want them to have a good time, but not T-O-O good a time, while keeping most of their clothes on. Do you know someone who could arrange, lead, and provide that type of entertainment and transportation. Everyone pray for me while I'm on this trip with such high energy young ladies!! First off relax. 99.9% of the people partying in Cancun have a great time. Just prepare for the .01 and you will be OK. This has nothing to do with immigration. Send me a PM to continue

RE: Immigration crack down

I have not heard of anyone in Sonora having that problem. I would take the warning from the state dept. as fact. But never trust some wierdo on you tube. His videos are a business and creating controversies enhances his income. His handle and t says it all. Would be nice to hear from someone in Maz and PV. Considering Ernie lives in Mexico, I would pay attention to that video. I have been asked for my visa at the Army checkpoint north of Hermosillo. That is in Sonora.

It's been 24 hours and all is well. It even held all of the programs we had put in. We are thrilled!!! Gotta love it. Mexicans can fix most anything.

RE: Immigration crack down

I have been getting a lot of reports of people being stopped on the street and being asked for thir passport, FMM or resident card. A few cases of people being held for up to 3 days if they dont have it woith them. I have also heard pèople are being denied a 180 day FMM unless they cna show reservations for that period) Not any RV´s yet just fly ins). The US State department has issued a notice about the first problem. I am wondering if this may have something to do with all the refugees trying to enter the US, and US pressure on Mexico. I am on the road a lot. There are INM checkpoints around the country. They pull over most buses and collectivos for inspection. I have gotten pulled over twice in the last couple of months by INM and got checked. Most of the time the INM officers have their noses buried in their phones. Tequilla, do you still have residency or are you coming into Mexico as a tourist?

RE: Hurricane Rick

Called the manufacturer in North Carolina, and the pump is trash. A technician is coming out at 5pm (don't know why) to confirm this. If the time to get the pump from the states is too long, one of us may fly to the states, pick it up and fly back. We'll see. In the meantime, we are keeping the chlorine levels a bit high and brushing the pool at least daily to get some circulation. good opportunity to score a covid booster Doesn't Canadian health care offer covid boosters?

RE: Expired RV permit

Moishe, I have done this for many clients. As posted above,just cancel the expired permit, then drive across the street and apply for a new one. Easy I love when the rules change. When 10 year TIP's were first offered in the 2005-2006, most banjercito officers didn't know what a RV was. The officer offered me a 10 year permit for my pickup truck with a slide in camper pulling a cargo trailer. Not one to tell a bureaucrat that they are mistaken, I took it

RE: Hurricane Rick

Talley, couldn't the tech's set you up with a temporary pump setup to keep the pool clean?

RE: Car Jacking

Not comfortable posting this but I do believe it is important. Matamoros and the surrounding areas along the border have had heavy gunfire every night for the last week. Streets blocked, cars set on fire. Most of it was caused by the death of a cartel leader. In English, you can find many reports searching for "Matamoros news". Gracias amigo

RE: Border

"End Of U.S. Travel Ban Hits Complications–Might It Be Delayed?" https://www.forbes.com/sites/alexledsom/2021/10/10/end-of-us-travel-ban-hits-complicationsmight-it-be-delayed/amp/ Although the above is about flights it probably applies to land borders. Not looking good. At this rate it might never open. I told you, they are not ready :). FB group on CAN-US border issues are talking about US struggling to meet Canadian PCR test requirement, people tested within 72 hours can't get results before their flight (or Americans now before their drive to Canada), or can't get an appointment on time, many locations are appointment-only. UK require PCR test too. This is still not the reason for land border closure, car traveller has no flight to miss, will spend another day in the US and drive. Just shows that they are not prepared. I'm not buying the relation to South border illegal immigrants, those are not using designated crossings or documents. Might cause the shortage of manpower at the North border, but the main problem is they are not prepared to process legal travellers under these new conditions. Meanwhile, cheap car-shipping at BC-WA border is sold-out until December. Bidbuy is available but not cheap, $890 for just a car without RV, plus $510 for 3-seat air charter. What you say, not being ready, might be true if the reason for the border closure is due to Covid. The land border closure has nothing to do with covid. The USA could open the land border TODAY, just like Mexico. Testing is an excuse. Covid is the excuse. Manpower is an excuse. Hopefully folks will see what really is going on and put a stop to this nonsense.

RE: Border

It appears that there are more restrictions on the way. Yeah. In some Canadian jurisdictions, there is already a mandatory vaccination passport needed to get on a plane, train, subway, bus and any and all public transportation (this, by last September, 30 days ago, in Quebec). Now, whether you like it or not, inter-Provincial air travel will be for the vaccinated only. These restrictions are not in my country, USA, but yours. If the citizens of Canada choose to give up freedom and create a 2nd class of people, that is on you. If you want to lock down that is your choice. If you allow your government to become like you brothers and sisters government in Australia, that is none of my business. I think the USA should not have any mandates and restrictions forced on the public. That is UN-AMERICAN. The restrictions destroyed more than they saved. Locals control their own lives in the USA not Washington. I don't want to see the USA be more like Canada (government wise) Politics will keep the land border closed on the 21st. I hope I am wrong.

RE: Border

Hi there, new to this forum and new to RV'ing. I live in Plattsburgh, NY, I am an ER Nurse here in Northern NY/Vermont. I am Canadian but hold Permanent residency status here in the US. I have been traveling to and from Nova Scotia to visit my dad throughout the Pandemic. I have the luxury of being able to cross the border at my leisure. My husband and I just bought an RV in Illinois and since becoming familiar with the RV'ing community I am wondering if there is any way I can assist Canadians with RV's in transporting across the border at the Plattsburgh NY location. We have the local Plattsburgh airport which accommodates flights daily into and out of Canada. I just want to help my fellow Canadians in the midst of this maddening border closure extension here in the US. Hoping I can in some way help fellow Snowbirds transporting their RV's across the border. If anyone out there can give me some direction or advice, I would greatly appreciate it. Would love to help in any way possible! Good for you. I have been doing the same thing in Mexico for years. People need assistance all the time. You can make some good money without taking advantage of people. Moishe, why don't you fly this kind lady to Manitoba, have her drive the rig south and fly her back to NY. Pay for her time too. You will probably pay the same amount to stay warm this winter.

RE: Border

.ost of this discussion has been about crossing from Canada to the USA Nothing that playaboy posted helps with that problem. I have posted a test that a educational tow company can move vehicles from Mexico to the USA. As for insurance Iposted that one should call their Mexican Insurance company about a non family member driving your vehicle. I would also suggest calling your Canadian insurance company for extra coverage. If a commercial service ( person is paid to drive) inoperative the vehicle coverage could be nil. Do your due diligence. Every year there are approx 1,000,000 Canadian snowbirds escaping the brutal cold winter in Canada. Last years restrictions caught everyone by surprise. Many don't want to be locked up again. Smart Canadian capitalist have figured out a way to help people escape south. These folks seem to have worked out the logistics making it easy. It seems the demand to leave Canada has overwhelmed the list of companies Silver provided. Maybe this year there will be about 500,000 Canadian snowbirds. The vast majority of the lucky escapees will stay in the USA and not cross 2 borders. Many will leave their rigs in the USA to avoid the continued restrictions in 2022. Oct 21 will be an important date. If the USA opens the land borders all this discussion is mute. I sincerely hope we open. But it does not look like it will ever be as free as it was pre-March 2020 Moishe, I don't even know why you post regarding border crossings since you have decided to stay in Canada for the winter. For others the solutions have been there for months. Or have you decided to pay the price for traveling south?

RE: Border

I guess when it starts to get cold, the days get shorter, and you are on self lock down because of the Pandemic, your imaginations tend to run wild filling with doom and gloom. Since Covid started I have legally driven/towed cars and RV's out of Mexico, 8 in all. Add to that the couple dozen cars I have taken north in years past. I have actually been thru process. It requires different paperwork depending on the vehicle. I use an Attorney to process everything, keeping all parties and property LEGAL. The easiest part of the process is Insurance. Just notify the insurance company that you want to add a driver. Usually a quick phone call and you get an email confirmation. The 2nd easiest part for me is entering the USA with someone else's vehicle. Since I cross frequently in different vehicles CBP has me in their computers and knows what I have been doing. I have all the proper paperwork, if even asked. It usually takes me minutes to clear CBP. I legally drive the RV's, cars and haul the trailers with your or my truck. I don't use flatbed or tow trucks. I will just say that I can take ANY vehicles out of Mexico when you need it. If these travel restrictions are still around when spring time comes (if so there could be a revolution)there will be a way for Canadian RV'ers to get home from Mexico. Just don't get caught in the negativity from the ones who chose to stay north for the winter.

RE: El Paso: border restrictions possibly lifted late October

I power washed the MH today and aired up the tires. It is still winterized . Still don't know if it will go back into storage or hit the road. Maybe a Margarita will help with the stress. Can't hurt. Why don't you just pony up the money and pay a facilitator to get your MH across the USA border? What's another $2500? Then you could enjoy that margarita on the beach in the sun for the next 6 months.

RE: Border

There have been lots of news articles about services taking RV's across the border (say to Buffalo NY) while their owners take a helicopter or plane to Buffalo and then drive their RV to the southern US. Here is a link that gives various options for cars and RV's. https://www.snowbirdadvisor.ca/how-canadian-snowbirds-are-getting-their-vehicles-across-us-border-while-its-closed When Spring comes around and the USA border is still closed to non-citizens, I'll take your rigs north into the USA.

RE: Border

What does fully vaccinated really mean? So you have had the two shots, does that mean you are fully vaccinated for only 3 to 6 months? It has been stated that after 3 months most Covid vaccines begin to lose their effectiveness. After 6 months its time for another one. With a 99 percent survival rate why is everyone freaking out about Covid. Now are we expected to get vaccinated every 6 months till we eventially die? Come on people, think, what is really going on here?
