RE: Travelling is not getting easier

Mexico's President on Covid vaccinations Very similar to his belief that when he took office the pharma companies that provided medicines to our social system were monopolies. He eliminated all 10 of them and since then over 3500 children have died needlessly because he refuses to buy their cancer treatments. Mexico news is like anywhere else. There are two sides to everything. Yesterday he held a Consulta Popular, the first in a series of many he will have. It was to determine if the ex-presidents should be investigated for corruption and then tried. The law in the Mexican Constitution already provides for that. He spent 26 million dollars on the vote yesterday and no one showed up (only 7% of the population). That money could have done one of the following things: Built 1749 low-income homes with a median value of 300,000 pesos Provided 10,600,000 food hampers Purchased 59,666 weekly cancer treatments for children. It is important to stay abreast of Mexican news so that tourists, residents, and Mexicans know where their pesos and dollars go in a country where 50% don't pay taxes and the rest is pilfered away on such nonsense that the law already provides for. Most North Americans should be appalled at the simple fact that he supports Cuba, the Cuban Revolution, and sent three ships this last week with food supplies, a tanker with diesel, and a ship carrying medicines that are needed just as badly here at home especially for innocent children who are part of our universal health care system.

RE: New TIP

So the TIP is issued and is on the phone. If the phone gets stolen how do you prove to the Policia Federeal that the unit is not "ilegal" in Mexico? You probably will need to get a decal. navegator And I wouldn't trust a transito to know that either or they would use it as an excuse for extortion. I don't doubt that it's true but what a silly idea.

RE: Travelling is not getting easier

Just about everything can be had online but for a price. Rv parts, vitamins, tires, things that used to be hard to come by are found on Amazon Mexico, Autozone and Mercadolibre. Don't forget a Costco and Sam's on every corner. My LTH deep cycle batteries are doing fine and cost me the same as Costco (Costco Mexico doesn't carry them anymore that I know of) plus I get a 48-month guarantee and they will come to the house to install and replace. Most large tire outlets can now order what you want, and I agree with Talleyho69, we always ask for tires that are less than six months old and the seller always complies. Ordering from the states in some cases takes time. We have a mailbox in Laredo, TX and the sister box is here in Monterrey. My new rv cover had a $50 import charge including delivery to Monterrey. We can't cross the border now anyway, and I wouldn't drive to Laredo if you paid me. The gas alone would be more than the $50 so it all comes out in the wash. Teslas are everywhere now, Volts, and just about every other taxi is a Prius.

RE: Travelling is not getting easier

The president has made it very clear. There will be no booster shots and no vaccines for children under 12. His goal is not to spend money and it only comes back to bite Mexico in the behind. Based on his stance, things will only get worse in the short term. We all need to accept reality. A pandemic lasts approx. 3 years. Variants were not figured into the equation. The sooner people follow the rules, and countries work together instead of against each other, it will come to an end. Another observation. Having spent a month in San Miguel de Allende, reading Mexico and ex-pat forums, it is truly surprising how little information people have about the places they travel and live outside their respective countries. I won't go into details on news, you can look it up yourselves. Be informed on what is happening in Mexico in terms of safety, security, the pandemic. and politics. Those four things are impacting these conversations now.

RE: Border News

Sinovac is not approved by the U.S. and 13 million doses were administered in Mexico. Now they say it is not effective after six months and the secretary of health announced that there will be no boosters. Does this mean that Mexicans vaccinated with Sinovac will not be able to visit the U.S.? Children will not be vaccinated.

RE: Border News

Too bad they sent out all that money to people living in other countries when the money was meant to stimulate their own economy. 1.5 million Americans live in Mexico times $3000 and it went to another economy?

RE: Border News

All true. Imagine how many businesses shut down in 1918 just after WWI attempting to recover not to mention all the lives lost. We will recover, business will return. What won't return are the millions who have died, and those that will suffer long-term illnesses. Why do we keep forgetting this? If we had worked together instead of against each other, this wouldn't have turned out this way.

RE: Border News

The US just renewed the closing for another month. I really do not think it will open for a long time. Maybe not this year Agreed. With the current threat of variants and the fast rise in cases again, I'm thinking another year and a half. The last epidemic was three years, even with the vaccine it won't be shortened because of the lack of doses and those not wanting to take the shot. Just returned from SMA and the majority of gringos refuse to wear a mask not to mention following other simple rules including leashing their dogs and cheating on their electric meters. What's wrong with people? Do they believe this is a country without laws? Whoever said, "do as the Romans do" was an idiot. Oh, I just Googled it, no wonder. :)

RE: Border News

Any news about vaccinated Mexicans and land border crossing to the U.S.? We found out this week that the Sinovac vaccine is one of the least effective and we will need a booster. Some rumors, I haven't confirmed, say there will be a list of accepted vaccinations in the near future that will be allowed to cross into the U.S. by land. Sinovac may not be one of them.

RE: Fausto Proposes Free Access of RVs Into Mexico

Does the article imply Mexican RV parks are to be for Mexican nationals only???? I am confused. No to the contrary. The proposed legislation would allow Mexicans a greater opportunity to participate in rving without the need to nationalize the vehicle. They would be able to use the temporary vehicle permit.

Fausto Proposes Free Access of RVs Into Mexico

Ran across this article today. Our rv friend from Sonora, Fausto Garcia is proposing that all rvs, including those purchased by Mexicans should have access to Mexico and a renewable 10-year permit. He said, "Immediately with this change would begin the creation of a new type of national tourism that does not exist today and the use trailer parks in Mexico would be used by Mexican tourists". You can translate the article if you want but this is a snapshot of the article. https://i.imgur.com/dJQZnnTl.jpg There is a similar article written by Fausto on the Yaqui Times but I can't find this particular newspaper to do a copy/paste translation.

RE: Closed: Border opening

The three presidents couldn't have scared me and here I can't say why. I just followed the science, I don't believe the Earth is flat.

RE: A lot more than we think?

That is an interesting group and I will probably contact them. The first paragraph mentions having to "ha contado con el apoyo de personal de Seguridad Pública del Estado" or having to count on state police for protection. So I guess it is a topic on everyone's mind. Traveling in groups may be the short-term solution for the future.

RE: Arco Norte Robbery

You have to have lived the experience of 2008-2012 or beyond to understand that we are returning to those days again. It wasn't fun. This time around, there is no one to protect us. No confrontation. With the latest incident in Reynosa this last week, even those living along the border are fleeing to the U.S. if they can. They are fed up with the "Abrazos no balazos" and "prohibido prohibir". I just wouldn't want any rver to be trapped in the nightmare as it would create an international scandal that would further reduce rving in Mexico. We continue to rv, but it's not as fun as it used to be. Let's just hope the current condition in which we live here will soon improve. I'm not very optimistic as I know the current administration and have studied the man as far back as 2006. I know where all this is going. If you don't speak the language, read the news or newspapers in either language, and don't understand where the current Latin American political culture is going, then I guess you are okay. I'm done with it. Have fun and maybe we will cross paths somewhere along the way.

RE: Arco Norte Robbery

None of this violence is new. It happens everyday. It has been going on for decades all over the country. There is no difference between the government, police, military, and the mafia. Without consequences for committing crime it will continue. It will not stop until the "people" arm themselves and fight (KILL) for their freedom. OR Have you hugged your favorite criminal today??? Wow, I guess that's what makes it such a great place to come and visit!

RE: Militarization of Aduanas

The youngcouples know nothing about Mexico so the videos are worth zero. There is one fellow who posts some interesting info. How to get a Curp.getting a mortgage and much more. Usually people who claim to be experts are fakes. I too remember Tioga and George He spent 3 days at our casa while I repaired his rv. He had one persona for his followers but really was a moocher. He had very little sympathy for poor Mexicans. I never got to meet him personally although I knew that he had an affect (a set of observable manifestations of an experienced emotion) of some kind.

RE: Arco Norte Robbery

Yesterday, on the autopista to Nuevo Laredo, a family was stopped by gunmen, robbed of their SUV, and left them high and dry at the top of Mamulique. The event was recorded by a trucker who was shot at in the incident. Assaulted, Robbed, and Left On Autopista Laredo. In addition, there have been over 100 people kidnapped since April on the highway between Km 26 and the Laredo bridge. No signs of anyone and no ransom asked for. Military, Guadia Nacional, and local police have done nothing. The only thing that helped the American family, mother, and two adolescents who disappeared two weeks ago was the intervention of the FBI last week. Still no signs. We have been told by the governors of Nuevo Leon, Coahuila, Chihuahua and Durango, to steer clear of the border. “El Bronco” advierte no viajar por la carretera de Monterrey a Nuevo Laredo "El Bronco", Governor of Nuevo Leon Advises No Highway/Autopista Travel Monterrey/Laredo

RE: Militarization of Aduanas

I'm happy for anyone who can make a buck. However, I have heard many people say, "well according to the Kinetic Kennons . . .". so that must be true! There are very few experts on Mexico and I haven't really found one yet. Even though he is long gone, I still go back and read Tioga and George's blog from time to time because he did something I always wanted to do (being single made that easy for him). Many misinterpretations based on his personal experience such as there are no ATMs in Mexico (we have had them since 1979) causing readers to come to Mexico with wads of cash. His experience was based mostly on his trip through Baja and very few visits to cities or towns which didn't provide a picture of Mexico, only a small glimpse. The videos are entertaining, to say the least, but usually titled to draw you in such as "Our Thoughts About Mexico Just Changed". They talk about the tooth fairy in the U.S. and the disgusting way we use the ratoncito (little mouse) in Mexico that takes the tooth. "What, I'm leaving Mexico". That was another Youtuber who drew in the crowds when in reality he was only going to the U.S. for a visit. You've got to go to the source. Language or lack of it is the barrier for most.

RE: Militarization of Aduanas

In my opinion, those surfer kids broke the law and the corrupt cop took advantage of it. Nobody is mooching here. Many folks make a living from YouTube. Look at Tangerine Travels. I applaud these kids for figuring out how to live the lives they do. I followed Tangerine Travels off and on. All information based on personal experiences and opinions. Very little factual info. They are out to make money which is good but their information sometimes is very misleading.
