RE: Closed: Border opening

That's where we are headed - a world where folks are silenced for their opinions. In my case I presented facts and simple math, along with questions about the effectiveness of lock downs. No lies, no misrepresentations. What if the narrative is wrong? What if the 16 month efforts did more harm than good? What about people so frightened by the narrative that they didn't get a lump or a new pain diagnosed in time to save their lives? Will these people who ignored facts and science accept responsibility? Of course not. A word to those who attack without ever disputing any point I raised. Stay home. Hide. No one will miss you. Travel in Mexico has always been a matter of overcoming irrational fears propagated by misleading news reports. Intellect allows people to decide whether or not what they hear is in fact true by venturing to think/see for themselves. People have been scared by their leaders. Fear gives them control. Facts don't matter because the are paralyzed by fear. I am a US citizen. I want the land and air covid restrictions ended. Mexico did what it always does, say one thing and do another. Canadians will probably stay locked up for another year unless the USA opens the northern land border. Then your government has to decide weather to allow you to leave or continue to keep you home.

RE: Militarization of Aduanas

I mentioned Tangerine because they are MX based videos and known to some of us. There are thousands more making a good living off of YouTube with videos.

Let's calm down. Nobody should be censored. We don't need "Closed: Border opening" part 2 The land and air border restrictions will be in place for another month. After that??????????????????

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.

RE: Closed: Border opening

It appears that Canada has decided not to open their land border for months to come. Canadians RVer's should prepare for workarounds or be locked down for another winter. Canada to lift some border restrictions July 5; next steps months awayhttps://www.reuters.com/world/americas/canada-lift-some-border-restrictions-july-5-foreign-travelers-still-excluded-2021-06-21/?fbclid=IwAR0rIshwZwHpkl6wRWK0YnjIAv3jBBlOL0ZDFZD8H4J5rrdaS1FaLd-t53Y Here is some of the "Science" Canada is using. "Trudeau addressed this on Friday at a press conference, acknowledging the ongoing border closure “is frustrating.” He explained that although fully vaccinated Canadians wanting to travel may be protected against hospitalizations, “it does not protect the community around you from catching COVID-19 from you.” REALLY??????? and the article https://globalnews.ca/news/7961418/covid-canada-us-border-closed-july-21/

Was that the couple in the Class B RV that had illegal CBD products? She spoke Spanish? That scenario doesn't sound familiar. Can you send me a link? If not, let me try and find it in Youtube. Cheers Start at about the 5 minute mark https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQMCD3Srm10&t=639s

RE: Closed: Border opening

Canada can stay closed for as long as they want. I want the USA to end all land crossing restrictions on June 21st. Then our border cities can start to recover and Canadian RV'ers can escape Canada.

RE: Militarization of Aduanas

Thanks, Chris for the article. On viewing Youtube blogs of RVers crossing into Mexico over the past 2 months, I found 3 crossers talking about being extorted at crossing borders, or 20 miles in. One of the Youtubers had a hidden camera inside their RV and recorded the entire harrowing experience. This is anecdotal of course, but seeing it happen on hidden camera, one has to stop or at least hesitate on their RVing plans. Was that the couple in the Class B RV that had illegal CBD products? She spoke Spanish?

RE: Militarization of Aduanas

The "Border" region between countries are some of the most corrupt regions everywhere in the world. Nothing has changed in the last 6 months since the change of shirts worn by officials. I cross the border frequently, usually pulling a cargo trailer. I have crossed south 5 times this year alone. My personal experience has been pretty straight forward. Auto-declare, negotiate the tax, pay with credit card, get paperwork and go down the road. Only once in the last decade was I asked for money,$200USD's, directly by the Aduana officer. This was at the Colombia crossing. I did what I needed to do, negotiate. The officer got his money and AMLO got less money. I got my paperwork and continued on my way. What else can you do???? Argue with the local "GOD"????

RE: Border opening?

I too have a list. By now, everyone knows people that have died from this virus. Government lock downs don't work, didn't stop the virus. Opening businesses, schools, Disneyland, doesn't kill people. These covid border restrictions are each governments decision. Land crossings have one set of rules, air rules have a different set of rules. "THE SCIENCE' People used to have the freedom to chose where to travel to, where to eat, what movie to see this weekend. That has been lost in the name of "THE SCIENCE". Even when fully vaccinated. Qtla, you created a bubble for yourself. Your choose. Or chose to play the restriction game, drive to San Antonio Airport, pick up your partner and travel the USA for the summer in your RV. You know, living life. It is past time to open the border to pre-covid rules.

RE: Border opening?

Mexico's land border has never closed. The USA should open their borders to legal travel. There is no reason that the Canadian government should punish their citizens, forcing them to spend another cold, harsh, winter stuck at home.

RE: Border opening?

Nothing against people coming to Mexico as long as it's safe but what is wrong with rving in your own country for a year or two? Fuel here is very expensive now so we would prefer to go to the U.S. but border restrictions keep us from going. We will travel here in the national parks this summer. I still think we are jumping the gun and when winter comes, lookout. Not that many Mexicans have been vaccinated. We just got our second jab on Saturday. I'm not sure why everyone is jumping for joy, it is a very melancholy event considering all the lives that have been lost. Even though you and your partner are vaccinated your lives are still being restricted. You can go to the USA to RV around the country. You just have to "play" the game. Have your partner get his covid test, then fly from Monterrey to the Mcallen. You can drive the rig up there in 3 hours and pick him up at the airport. Then boondock your way across the USA. Even with vaccinations, we will be seeing these same travel restrictions for many more months or even years.

When Canada opens it's borders the USA will do the same. Mexico never closed the border. I hope it is soon because these lock downs are very, very.................

RE: Deleting and Closing A Thread

There already exists an agreement between the three countries, T-MEC although Mexico's president has violated 12 articles of the agreement. The T-MEC is about business, jobs, and economies. Isn't that pretty much what you are referring to in terms of the damage that has been done? So if we would have worked together, locked down hard for a few months we would have been in a condition that was survivable. Chris: Only 6 countries and two regions have used something called the (smallpox) virus zero approach, on Earth. This recent strategy is called: COVIDzero. The countries include: China, Taiwan, Iceland, Australia, New Zealand, a portion of East Asia, Vietnam, and, drum-roll: Atlantic Canada ! It works to a greater extent. Not completely watertight, however the zero strategy is the strictest virus-containment measure in the human environment known-- with precedent (successful smallpox containment). "Brazil and Mexico --and India--, leaders chose a third option by virtually doing nothing and letting the virus spread." (cited from: the Canadian news journal, TheTyee, 2021). Unless all States World-wide sign onto a program as focused and some would say, "draconian" as COVIDzero plan, there is no way to stop an air-borne infectious virus. In fact as strict as COVIDzero is, even COVIDzero practitioners Nova Scotia and Australia, recently, have lost control and are experiencing community spread. Wasn't that my point? Tonight on PBS they presented the Australian COVIDzero and their success. Australia's Success Sad that "all states" didn't sign on to the program brings my point home. It's not about "us", it's about "me". The Canadian journal hit the nail on the head. MEXICO DID NOTHING. Why? The president didn't: 1) admit the problem was out of hand 2) spend money as it was against his austerity plan 3) have good information about the pandemic 4) care about anything other than the economy and his numbers. They are just delaying the inevitable. Once these countries leave their bubbles, in a year or two, and join the rest of the world, Covid will do it's thing. I think it is the height of arrogance to think we humans can stop this virus.

RE: Mixed Messages

I worked in public health, specifically environmental health,from 1992-2007. These people are egotistical, control freaks. They are in the spotlight and love it. All these local health agencies, LEA's, want to do is grow their departments. Grow they have. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=55bIIbdADSI I personally know this inspector. She is the norm not the exception. I have conversations with a couple of sanitarians I used to work with every week. They are from different jurisdictions and States. They all say they FOLLOW the CDC guidelines. But their local guidelines (restrictions) vary. One thing they all have in common is that these people made great money (25-40%) with all the overtime they received in 2020 while having meetings and writing these new regulations. QTLA, While you are doing all your research go to the LEA's web sites across the USA. There are hundreds of them. Read all the varies restrictions imposed on the public. Distancing requirements are different, mask requirements are different, curfews, occupancy allowed in a restaurant or hotel, all based on the SCIENCE. Most restrictions are written based on "if", "possibly", "could", "maybe", "models" not on the SCIENCE. Why can Disney World (and the rest of Orlando) be open and Disneyland (Anaheim)is shut down. Why are schools safely open in one State and closed in another State? Where is the Science? Folks, I have traveled across MX and the USA. I have seen with my own eyes how all these different restrictions affect communities. It is not good. I am not an antivaxer. 3-4 months ago I got my tetanus booster. Believers??? Is this a religion? I had Covid, I have antibodies, I don't need this vaccine. They have destroyed millions of peoples livelihoods in the name of saving their lives. What a joke. I know the virus is real. I have lost 3 friends to it. I know many more that have been seriously sick and recovered. I had a mild case. Yesterday I went to the Gardens of the Gods, enjoy a crisp spring day with several thousand other people. Today is Pikes Peak.

RE: Mixed Messages

I would expect the border restrictions will be in place well into 2022. There won't be any "vaccine passports". In fact travel will get more restrictive. The new summer variant mutation the scientist(?) discover "might possibly" be 10x more deadly. To my Canadian friends, if you want to come to Mexico, come now. If you want to go to Canada, pay the price your government charges you and go now. Pretty soon you won't be able to. Canadians, if you stuck and have a RV or car in Mexico, can't cross the USA border, I can legally drive your RV/car or haul your trailer north. Yep, everybody hurry up so you can beat the rules and find ways around them. To heck with everyone else. Who's science? Medical science is not an EXACT science. 2+2 doesn't always = 4. The people with the PHD's are Medical Practitioners. Are the PHD's in Florida stupid? In NY geniuses? How about the PHD's writing the rules in Mexico? Are the PHD's smarter at the WHO? CDC? FDA? Is Fauci the numero uno PHD in the world? I was just in Texas where those with the PHD's removed all restrictions. Now in Colorado where the PHD's state you could be fined if you don't where a mask. If you have traveled around the USA and Mexico like I have in the last year, you would see that the rules have little to do with COVID. QTLA, which PHD do you listen to? Who's rules do you follow? Does anyone still have a choice?

RE: Mixed Messages

"This is exactly what I was referring to in the other post. Mixed messages between three North American countries related to land travel. As I stated, we have the T-MEC agreement but it doesn't seem to mean very much. As rvers, where, when and why should we or shouldn't we travel to any of the three countries? Is it correct to take actions that are against our countries of origin and what are the risks? Those questions refer to those who are having their rvs shipped across borders and then flying and those that frivolously travel back and forth throwing caution and precautions to the wind. I may be preaching to the wrong choir." As one that travels as if it is 2019, I see people do take precautions and are not frivolous in their travels. I have never seen so much bleach use by businesses and airports in my life. I have taken vehicles north into the USA for non-Americans stuck on this side of the border. It makes it very costly for Canadians that want to travel. I don't think that we should blindly listen to our government officials. To question our officials is part of Americans DNA. Personally I have lots of questions.

RE: Deleting and Closing A Thread

QTLA, I am sorry I didn't get to read your post. I have enjoyed reading the differing opinions here without the name calling. Let's hope the Mods will leave it alone. Lock downs didn't stop the spread of the virus (Cal and NY). Being open did not spread the virus (FL and Utah). It is total arrogance to think we can STOP the spread of a microscopic airborne speck of a virus. Lock downs have destroyed millions of businesses and peoples lives. States with no lock down are fiscally and mentally in better shape. Most of the USA locked down in the beginning of this mess. It didn't stop anything. They were able to lock down by sending people free money. That is the only reason people's tempers have not blown sky high in the USA. Mexico doesn't give it's citizens free money so if there is a total lock down, then people starve. I have sent money to help friends that are out of work in Tulum so their kids can eat. During the lock downs in Jalisco, most businesses did not close and the authorities let things slide. If you think all we have to do is follow the "SCIENCE" then why don't the scientist and doctors agree? Answer; medical science is not an exact science. Dr's PRACTICE medicine. Covid regulations are all over the place depending where you are. Are the so called scientist in NY and CA smarter than the scientist in TX or UT? I have lost a couple of friends to covid. I know many more that got very sick and survived. I was lucky to have a mild case. It is f'cked up disease. As Americans, if things get bad we can pick up and leave. Mexican will do what they have always done when things are bad, they will suffer through it or they will run to the USA and make a life there. I personally know Mexican families moving NOB and reuniting today. People have to take personal responsibility for their decisions. We don't need bureaucrats making our medical decisions and controlling our lives. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qp3gy_CLXho
