RE: cell phone in Mexico

The Amigo Telcel pay as you go does change. The price remains the same but the days of coverage changes. I think the $100 peso gives you about 17 days. It is still a good deal and it is 4G in most areas. I changed from my el cheapo Lanix to a Huawei. I think it was 1600 pesos. maybe a little more. Actually a pretty good phone.

RE: Bringing dog from Mexico to Canada, driving.

We brought a Mexican cat to Canada. No problems. The Vet printed out a fancy health certificate. Even had his Vet seal and a photo of the cat. We called it her passport! Moisheh

RE: Question about turning in active 10 year permit?

The best way is to take the vehicle to a border. Any decent Mexican border with a Banjercito. But if not it would be better if you still own the vehicle. This is why some people turn in the 10 year permit every time they leave Mexico. When I had that problem I could have saved myself the hassle. I had sold the motorhome subject to the buyer doing an inspection in Tucson. I was still in Mexico. I could have turned in the permit on the trip to Tucson or I could have returned to Nonages after it was sold with the MH. Cancelled the permit and driven back to Tucson. Hindsight is always 20/20.

RE: Question about turning in active 10 year permit?

If you sell the unit before canceling the permit: Welcome to Hell. I did it but the process was like an Abbot and Costello Who is on First. I had the proper forms and all the required info. Sent it from HMO to Mexico City via Estafeta. Next day the driver called me. he could not deliver it as the woman whose name was on the address no longer worked at that location. They sent it back to HMO. I called and got the proper address and name. Again sent it by Estafeta. 2 weeks later they called me in Canada and said more info was required!!!! They wanted the Secretary of State to sign something. I insisted that we do not have anyone like that in canada to do documents. After battling them for a month they finally agreed that a notarized statement from the new owner was OK. Luckily the wife of the fellow that bought my unit was a Notary. I sent it via DHL from Canada and within 3 weeks they sent me stamped paper saying all is good. I think it cost me over $140.00 in shipping! I speak enough Spanish to get through to them . I also learned to get angry in Spanish and insisted on speaking to a supervisor. She spoke perfect English. I still think they do this on purpose. It is a way of getting even for the USA stealing California from Mexico. But wait: I am not an American! Moisheh

RE: Algodones dental work and prescriptions?

Tylex is the same asTylenol. Bring your own from the USA, Much cheaper. There is a Tylex that contains Codene but it is a controlled substance. Some dentists just tell you to take a combination of Tylenol and Ibuporofen. It is a mega dose. You can look it up on Google. Moisheh

RE: Algodones dental work and prescriptions?

Opioids and narcotics are available but not from a normal pharmacy. Those Farmacias are usually attached to a hospital. The prescription must come from a special Dr. Like a anesthesiologist. My surgeon had to get his anesthesiologist to write the script. I doubt a dentist can help. Moisheh

RE: A good Pemex incident from my Partner:

Recently my wife forgot her purse in a local restaurant here in Kino. WE drove about 1/4 mile to buy fuel. I went to pay asked her for some money. OH NO. No purse. I had just enough to pay the attendant and drove at high speed to the restaurant. The waitress had the purse ! We tipped her again. Mexico is full of thieves but there are more good people in this world than bad! Moisheh

RE: Mexicali to tijuana toll road

What is your tow vehicle? I hope the truck is not a duallie or a one ton. The tolls would be higher with a duallie. I have not heard of anyone having troubles entering Baja with a duallie but at some crossings they are not allowed. Moisheh

RE: Postal code

Unless you have a US address on file for your credit card it is likely that playing with zip codes will not work. Aside from that using a Canadian Credit Card in the USA will incur charges from 2 to 4% from Visa/mastercard. There are a few credit cards that will not have this charge. Using Vancouver and Nogales as an example: If you travel 2000 miles each way your unit could use 500 US gallons at a cost of say $4.00 USD per gallon. 8MPG. At 3 % that would be $60.00 for the privilege of using a CDN. credit card. For thrifty Canadians tat is a hefty charge. AS for postal codes: It depends on your postal code. If it is R2W2Z4 then 22400 may not work. +

RE: Roof sealing

I would not worry about who is doing the job. rather you need to make sure they use a good product. Look for one called IMPACT 5 year. Excellent quality. Any Ferrateria should have that brand. Don't let the worker water down the product. Moisheh

RE: Nogales to HMO

As a person that spends a lot of time in HMO if you can use a bypass take it! The traffic in HMO has become ridiculous. The trucks, including doble remolques, drive right downtown. Changing lanes like they are driving a VW. It is hairy in a PU truck but in an RV it is a recipe for disaster. Lane changing, jumping red lights, driving up on the sidewalk and more. Very few good drivers. Save your sanity and take the bypass.

RE: New, Easier Pet Importation Regulations

We always have our papers and maybe once in over 25 years have had to show them. Don't know what will happen with the new rules It seems every year they come up with some new requirement. For the last 2 or 3 years it has been one ton or 3/4 ton trucks. Now it is your pets. Mexico is a sovereign nation and can make it's own rules. But they should be more like the pet rules for Canada and the USA. Have you ever heard of an Ameican pet spreading rabies??

RE: New, Easier Pet Importation Regulations

What a crock of you know what. Would you leave your pet at some border station? This is worse that the old regs. Just another reason for tourists to go elsewhere. If I were a regular tourist going on vacation and was subjected to this BS I would just turn around and never come back. Neither Canada nor the USA do anything like this. These regs are coming from a country with probably a few hundred thousand wild dogs with rabies and very other animal illness that exists.Why don't they just close the border!!! talleyho: You are trying to make out like this is an improvement. How about supporting RV'rs not the country of Mexico!

RE: Watch for this rig in Mexico but do not approach

We have used City Express in HMO when we have medical appointments. Great spot. Nice clean rooms and excellent breakfast. You can find discounted rooms on many of the online booking sites. Moisheh

RE: Watch for this rig in Mexico but do not approach

Chris is right. Although Border cities can be bad once you are past that point things are usually fine. Right now I would not travel past Guaymas!!!! But we would sure like to get on a plane and go back to Oaxaca and Chiapis Guaymas has more murders than Nogales! Rotten cops that get replaced all the time. Moisheh

RE: Watch for this rig in Mexico but do not approach

There are many areas in Mexico where boondocking is not recommended. Use a Pemex for overnighting. We once went and asked the Police if it was safe to stay near the beach. He said: NO,NO,NO. Asked us to follow him and we went to this large Motel with a fenced yard. WE stayed there overnight. Ate in the restaurant and swam in the pool. No charge but we tipped the velador> QTLA knows of lots of safe spots! Moisheh

RE: Watch for this rig in Mexico but do not approach

A number of years ago there was an announcement in the Kino community that a couple who were heading to Mexico were missing. No one here had seen them. A few days later the story unfolded. This elderly couple crossed late in the day. They saw another RV parked on the side of the road somewhere between Nogales and HMO. Figured it was safe and parked for the night. The other RV was occupied by 2 couples that had robbed a bank in the USA. Texas I think. They killed the couple and stole their RV and credit cards. The RV was spotted at Costco in HMO. The killers headed to San Carlos in some other vehicle and tried to use the credit card. Store owner called the police and the rest is history. Moral of this story is that sometimes you don't have to be worried about cartels. Rather it can be a fellow American ( or Canadian) that can be dangerous. Also do not just park for the night on the side of the road. Moisheh
