RE: Hoy No Circula

Just a comment. Hoy No Circulo is a disaster. Started in 1989, the result is that most people have two cars so they can move around on the days they are not supposed to. They want to implement this system here in Monterrey. Hopefully, I won't be living here by then. With so many regulations and exceptions, it leaves the door open for corruption.

RE: When is a 3/4 ton needed?

Do you have add on mirrors? Those help...not as good as real tow mirrors but better than trying to use normal mirrors. I would think an ecoboost Exp EL with tow package would be able to handle a trailer of that size. Some sag is fine, and you say its not swaying. All sounds good so far. Might be a little much if you load the full 3300lbs of cargo capacity in the trailer though. Our specs are pretty much the same on the TT and we tow with a Dodge Durango. Eazlift WDH and the attachable mirrors work just fine. I think maybe I could eliminate the 1 inch sag on the rear by turning over the shank but not sure how to do that. You shouldn't be driving over 60 anyway so enjoy the ride and the trip.

RE: Another Oldie Not Mine

Cool! With a little care, maintenance, you can get a lot out an rv. A remodeled TT for 6500? Sounds like a great deal.

RE: internet options

Before carlos slim took over the service was horrible. Telemx had a bad union and the workers did not care about anything. When you called in to report a problem they would tell you it will be fixed. 2 days later it was still NG. If you called and complained they simply hung up. But things have changed. Our phone works 99.9% of the time. Now if we could only get the water dept. to improve their service!!!! X2 Better than any service I have used in North, Central and South America.

RE: Tioga George

He will be missed. I read his blog every evening. Not many left I enjoy reading. I posted a video on my blog from YouTube he made back in 2008. He talks about how and why he did what he did. The guy had guts to travel all over Mexico and boondock in places most people would have never imagined. He showed us how safe Mexico is and that Mexicans are some of the nicest people in the world. I believe he will become a cult figure in the Mexico rving community. We will see tributes and memorials over the next year. Viva George, Viva Mexico!

Adios George. You made Mexico proud the years you boondocked here. I will miss your daily read. QEPD

RE: TelCel Phones

Lots of info for the Hempler Strauss phone on the internet but it appears that all the videos and info is in Spanish. You could use Google Translate to help. It also appears that Walmart sells these phones and I am sure just about any cell phone salesperson from any brand would be more than willing to help you.

RE: Tioga and George?

I wondered the same thing this morning and have also received emails and FB messages from others who follow his blog. Let's hope he's okay. Come on George, post please!

RE: internet options

We've never had an issue with Telmex. The two times that our modem burned out due to storms or lightning strikes, the serviceman brought us a new one in less than 72 hours. I'm sure there are lots of bad as well as good stories about Telmex. We love them and wouldn't think of changing our service. We live in a rural community to boot and our road is not paved and over a km long. We are "supposed" far from the register box that the signal should be very low. We stream Netflix, use two laptops all at the same time without an issue. Once in a blue moon, the service may go out for a short time but that's about it.

RE: internet options

A different approach, but if they are going to be sitting in the same place for three months, how about having TelMex run a line directly to them? We had it run to us last January, and the installation was a flat price and we pay 249p per month for an honest 50 mbps. I think the installation was something like $50 US including the modem and router. They installed in two days. Just another thought. Good idea. We have had the Telmex service since 2000. It's fast, reliable and as you said, very affordable.

RE: internet options

Two majors systems manage towers throughout Mexico; Telcel and Movistar. We have a USB stick for both. We are never without service. If one doesn't work, the other will. You can check their service areas on their websites via their network maps.

RE: Mexican Gas Shortage

Heart be still!! Chris and I agree 100%. Moisheh Who knew?
qtla9111 01/22/19 07:15pm RVing in Mexico and South America
RE: Mexican Gas Shortage

A couple quick facts that include those that Moisheh has already stated. 1) The "supposed" closure of pipelines is to create a shortage which is obvious by not importing fuel from the U.S. 2) The explosion would likely not have happened if the pipelines were not shut down. 3) AMLO stated yesterday that the pipelines are old, outdated and need to be replaced, another reason for him to promote Pemex. The average age of gasoline pipelines in the U.S. is 50 years old. 4) The acquisition of tankers is not the government's job, that belongs to Pemex. 5) The Mexican economy has already lost 3.5 billion dollars because of transportation issues. Imagine all the produce, meat, and other perishable products that are not shipping on time. The produce hubs are reporting a 40% loss of product due to the shortage. 6) AMLO is from Tabasco which is an oil rich state and at one time one of Pemex's largest producers. He wants to revive the industry, although as Moisheh pointed out, it will take at least 10 years to bring a new refinery online as well as an estimated cost of 4 billion dollars per unit. The existing refineries are running between 40 and 70% and need dire attention. 7) The shortage, in the long run, will not bring lower fuel prices. 40% of the price per liter is a federal tax. Pemex franchises earn 94 to 96 centavos per liter, much more than their U.S. counterpart. 8) The explosion of the pipeline and the tragic loss of over 90 Mexicans proves that this is not only a cartel issue but also a cultural problem. AMLO stated that it is out of necessity that people steal gasoline. No necessity requires stealing gasoline. Mexico is a poor country but nothing compared to African or Asian countries where people live on a dollar a day. 9) Pemex is co-owner of a refinery in Houston so there should be no issue with the importation of product. My personal prediction is the following: This is a government-proposed shutdown of the pipeline to create a shortage. There is a huge surplus of fuel sitting off the east coast near Veracruz and gasoline has a shelf life. Prices will drop temporarily to use the existing fuel, and AMLO will be able to live up to his promise of lower prices. Also, with the cartels which continue to attack pipelines and with the possibility of attacking tankers in the next weeks, AMLO will be able to militarize the country. He has accomplished 4 of the 7 acts in the last month that Hugo Chavez of Venezuela also put into practice his first month as president. I have the list. Very sad situation. JMHO

RE: Truck Camper Registration

As RP's we returned to Mexico last June pulling a cargo trailer with our possessions in it. We had been residents too long to use the menaje de casa. No customs broker was interested in us because we didn't have enough stuff but the value was well over $3,000. Contacted our local Mexican Consulate in Oxnard, California and they said that what we should do legally was to arrive at the border and declare everything and pay the tax. We did that. Total cost $3000p, 45 minutes. According to the Consulate it is perfectly OK to arrive at the border, declare what you have and pay. Credit card payment required, and official paperwork was given to us. That was a smart decision. The menaje de casa can be a costly and timely venture. As you did it, it was worth it to weigh the value of the goods.

RE: Mexican Gas Shortage

It was a mistake to close the pipelines. It has brought economic loses of over 2 billion dollars so far. Sad situation.

RE: Truck Camper Registration

All new information to me. I had thought about doing the same in the past. So I wonder, as a Mexican resident, if I buy a van and have the interior outfitted in Texas, if I would have problems at the border like with the truck camper?

RE: Forum dead

I do have to admit I could not care less about Mexico but know a few here do. Isn't that a bit sarcastic? Sure, I could pass this by, but this has always been one of the problems. Lack of respect for the foreigners who have/had participated in the forum. We had some good Mexican rvers who gave excellent advice regarding travel and culture, how to act and how to do things. They all left. Imagine if I were to say the same about your country? (And then again, maybe some think I am a troublemaker as well). ;)
