RE: Turning in your FMM

The Fellow at Piedras Negras told Me in Perfect English that He had absolutely No idea why We were bothering to turn the Tourist card in! It has an expiry date . He did Stamp Our Passports ,but didn't so much as look at them or find the page that had Our Entry Stamp!

RE: Honda CRV

We upgraded from a 92 Tracker to an 07 CRV back in June! Installed a Demco Baseplate to match the Demco Excalibar Tow Bar that I already had on hand. Also went with their Wiring Kit ..Plug and Go ,I used a 7 Pin connector to the MoHo! I considered a charging wire to keep the Toad Battery charged ,but decided to just install a switch to the fuse for the Radio.So far it works fine. The only critisism that I have is the Michelin Tires make this car very noisy to drive. I met a fellow who had replaced His with Bridgestones from Costco ,He claimed they were much quieter ! Mine are still like new ,but will replace them at the first opportunity!

RE: Towing a Honda CRV

No fuse pulling here either but I do have a ToadCharge for no particular reason. http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r192/SCVJeff/B79EB14E-7C5C-4663-99F9-154B03F27E03_zpsyznswx8w.jpg height=300 width=300 There is no label like that under Ours,but it is the same procedure in the manual!

RE: Shaw Satellite - quad output

IfYou have a PVR Type Receiver You need Two lines to the LNB! If You have a Non PVR Receiver You require only a Single Line! There are Four Outputs on that LNB! So if You have 4 Receivers which Do Not Have PVR 's You can connect all 4!

Road Report Guad to Eagle Pass!

We took Mex 54 North this past Week. It's alovely Road very scenic and as such a bit slower than using Mex 80D! We arrived safely at Zacatecas in plenty of time for a Happy Hour beverage with Our Travel Companions! Checked in to the RV Park at Hacienda Baruk ...Formerly Hacienda del Bosque! We spent two nights ,so got to visit the Beautiful City of Zacatecas and the nearby City of Guadalupe . Very Vibrant and Busy as this was on Palm Sunday! The line ups to the Aerial Tram were humongous so We passed for this season,but will definitely be back to ride across the Valley. Not a single bad thing to report about this section of Highway,unlike the mess out on the West Coast. The only Tolls were between Zac and Montclova ,then Montclova to Ojo Caliente Because We were running a bit late We decided to take another section of Toll Road from Nuevo Allende up to the Aduana Booth south of Piedras Negras. This was the only section of the entire route where there were a few rough sections. I would skip this bit in favorite of the Libre which was reported to be in excellent condition! For those interested the Tolls from Manzanillo to the Border for Motor Home plus Toad! Manzanillo to Cuyutlan $375 Pesos Cuyutlan to San Marcos (Colima) $192 p San Marcos to aca Lago $83 p Aca Lago to Guadalahara $109 p Guad to Zacatecas ...Zero... Libre Road. Zac to Montclova ..$76 p Mont to Ojo Caliente $34 p Nuevo Allende to Aduana Booth $144 p ( not worthwhile) Toll Bridge at Piedros Negras $50p A grand Total $1098 Pesos Considering the Time ,Cost and Minimal mileage difference ,We will be taking this route in the future ! We might however elect to add the Toll Road ..Hwy 80 between Zacatecas if we were in a bigger Hurry!

Sad News from Boca Beach

It is with great sorrow that I must report that Jean Michel,the Founder of The Boca Beach RV Park has passed away after a courageous battle with Cancer. He will be missed by all who knew him.

RE: closure hwy 200 Manzanillo to Pv

We were told that the PV Buses were still running up and down 200 between Melaque and Puerto Vallarta as of Today! I wonder if somebody got their information wrong! There was that Detour through the arroyo near Tomatlan which supposedly got hit by the rain. Maybe it was more serious than First reported. Can You confirm the road closure Tequila?

RE: Bandito Watch 2015

We haven't even come close to any Bandidos or Banditos although there was an attempted Purse Snatching last week by an Older Bandita who appears to be Caucasian ! Her Name apparently is Well known as is her reputation as a thief! She approached the victims table in a beachfront restaurant asking if anyone had seen her dog. Then quickly grabbed a carelessly placed purse from beside a chair. She got taken down very quickly by a friend of the victim and the handbag was recovered intact. Nothing life threatening ,just annoying. Her photo ,at the scene is now in the hands of the local authorities!

RE: What rv parks in baja

The biggest reason that We Canadians head North in March is because until this Year We were only allowed to be out of Our Home Province for Six Months! This Year it is Seven Months . As a result there will be some of Us heading South Earlier and some who will head Home later! And Yes We do need to file Our Taxes by the end of April as some folks who haven't hired an accountant or Such to file on their behalf will need to scurry Home early!

RE: Hermosillo RV Park OPEN?

Not Everyone is familiar with Your Location Fausto ! It would make sense to hang the Old Sign back up,or at least something to indicate that there is even an RV Park there! I realize that You don't want to make it too obvious for business reasons ,but realistically part of the reason that You didn't have enough customers in the first place was because of lack of signage. I must have passed Your place a dozen times before We finally spotted it. By then it was too late to pull over and the next season You were closed!

RE: Road conditions going North on 15/15D

Mexico City to Mazatlan and likely as far North as Obregon should be decent although there will no doubt be some cruddy conditions from section to section! North of Obregon all bets ar off !
