RE: And so it begins. (In North America).

I can only imagine what people said when they went from horses to cars. "Just a fad, it will pass".

RE: Info on Casita trailers or Lance 1475

Lots of Youtube videos from Casita owners. A good one to check is Rusty78609. He recently sold his but loved it and did many videos on the quality, fit and finish.

RE: Ev charging in camps expectation of availability, cost

A lot of state and national parks are opening charging stations. I've never understood the haggle over hookups when you have a 45ft motorhome with three A/Cs and a popup next to it with the same overnight fee. So why the haggle over having an EV using a hookup? Limit it to a trickle charge only. People are towing now with EVs and they'll be looking for charging stations.

RE: Have to wonder how this will effect the EV aficionados

Changes in weather have led to the migration of peoples for millennia. With a change to renewables, why couldn't it be possible that over time people move to warmer climates? We base our general knowledge on what we know and what we have lived which is a blip in time. We need to look back about 200,000 years to see shifts in migration associated with climate. Nothing is static and all of this could change again. The possibility exists that we may all stay put and something new such as advanced small modular reactors (SMRs) could come to save the day. People find it very hard to be objective when it comes to science, politics and religion. It's not all one way or the other. That's why we are where we are today. No one wants to negociate anymore. It's either my way or no way. It has never worked.

Mexico's online registration system is now up and running although saturated. I was able to register this morning and am awaiting a call from the call center to confirm my date. That probably won't happen for quite some time without any vaccines yet available but it is the first step.

RE: New Border Regulations

With only 400,000 Americans in the ground from Covid-19 it is hard to understand the concern of the Canadians to having visitors from the USA. I would guess that the OP is not aware that the death toll is 1000 times higher in the USA than in many other countries where the people behave responsibly and wore masks and self isolated.Other than North Korea, which by it's own admission has not had a single COVID case, what country has a reported death rate 1000 times lower than the US? I'll answer that question, there are six: Thailand, Papua New Guinea, Mongolia, Vietnam, Tanzania and Burundi. The wealthiest of those six countries, Thailand, has a Gross Domestic Product 1/8th that of the US. If you really want to hold those nations up as paradise found, you will probably find yourself in a very small minority. GDP does not relate directly to the quality of life and happiness. I live in Mexico in the countryside. Many of my neighbors up in the hills live in cabins and cook on wood stoves. They wouldn't change it for anything. They're happy, carefree, and live to be in their 90s. The other countries rely heavily on credit and steep borrowing which will never be paid back, both governments and citizens.

RE: Opinion on Resort fees

After paying $50 a night with one night free for a one week stay in Florida, never again. We were literally packed in like sardines. Because we had a small 18ft TT at the time, we were lodged into a small triangular space where the tip of our hitch was touching the edge of the road. The pool was dominated by a specific group of people after 3:30 who splashed us with water until the discovered we spoke French (true French). That's why we boondock whenever possible.

RE: US to require COVID Testing for International Flyers

What an embarrassment to Mexicans to think we have stooped so low not to mention the risk they may be putting people in.

Is there a chart (or has it been posted) that shows the different vaccines and their efficacy rate? Mexico is now going with the Sputnik V which has a lower efficacy rate than others. Mexico has also been asked by the United Nations to delay the Pfizer purchase in order to get more doses to poorer countries quicker. Mexico says it's OK with getting less Pfizer vaccine for now

RE: Traveling in 23 ft trailer with cat

Both our cats (RIP)were rescues and one traveled with us for 20 years in our 24ft travel trailer. They slept a lot in the SUV and romp around in the trailer but not at night. They were great travel companions and went everywhere with us.

RE: US to require COVID Testing for International Flyers

Yet it was these very hipsters who attended a Burning Man-style festival in Mexico that turns out to have been a ‘---------’ event, with several participants bringing ------ back with them to New York City as a pathogenic souvenir. 70% of ----- tests at NYC clinic are hipsters who attended Tulum “Burning Man”-style festival And yet Americans and Canadians continue to travel back and forth to Mexico. Yes, they can cross the border. That said, just because you can doesn't mean you should. Here in Mexico we are in dire conditions and we have proof that Americans have been hospitalized in Mexico and some have returned to the U.S. Just do the right thing. Stay home.

Don Beto's Mexican Restaurant in La Feria for great Tex-Mex food. We can't wait to get back to the RGV and SPI. So much to see and do and it never gets old. Snowbirds are very friendly there and we have had great times and good memories.

Fleeing Lockdown, Americans Are Flocking to Mexico City Yesterday in the state of Nuevo Leon (Monterrey) there was a complete lockdown. No local shops or tienditas, convenience stores, all closed. Only pharmacies and gas stations were open. It's getting worse here by the day. Mexico City has better days but it goes up and down. On good days they publish the number, on bad days they don't. Today 20% of hospital beds are available. Last week it was zero. At the current rate of vaccine purchase and vaccination, it will take 25 years to vaccinate every Mexican. It's not for lack of money, Mexico has $200 MMD (USD) in cash reserves. Makes you wonder it we are waiting for herd immunity to kick in to save cash.

RE: New Canada Border regs.

Fleeing Lockdown, Americans Are Flocking to Mexico City But while coming to this country may be a relief for many foreigners, particularly those fleeing colder weather, some Mexicans find the move irresponsible amid a pandemic, especially as the virus overwhelms Mexico City and its hospitals. Others say the problem lies with Mexican authorities, who waited too long to enact strict lockdown measures, making places like Mexico City enticing to outsiders.

RE: New Canada Border regs.

The U.S. and Canada should clamp down on Mexico for allowing people to cross into the country. It serves no purpose to close two borders and open another. People just aren't getting it.

RE: New Canada Border regs.

Too many mixed messages. U.S. border crossing each have their own criteria as well as each agent. The same goes for heading into Mexico, with so many rules and zero consistency. You would think that as with T-MEC, they would be able to agree on the rules and stick to them and save some lives.

RE: Is there something I am missing ?

Neither of us can figure out why people driving by themselves are wearing masks. We do take walks in parks and wildlife refuges an do so sans masks. We think it funny when people twenty or thirty yards away pull up their masks as they approach us as the mear passing someone at multiples of recommended social distancing are a hazard to their health. There are two very good reasons for wearing a mask while driving at least where we live: 1) As silly as it may seem, it's the law. Similar to using turn signals even when no one is behind you. The number of accidents caused by not using turn signals could be similar to the number of people who have died from the virus for not wearing a mask when they thought no one was around. 2) By everyone wearing a mask outside of their house it sets the example. There are hundreds of nomad rvers all over Arizona not wearing masks, rvers who are on the road traveling, and many are not in any danger whatsoever. However, what is the message they are sending to others? Well, if they're doing it, we can do it and it must okay. This is where the breakdown happens and people get sick and die. For me, if it meant saving just one life, it would be worth everyone wearing a mask. What I have learned during this year is that human lives really don't mean very much until it's one of yours. As my mother used to say, "when things go south, don't come a cryin' to me, remember, I told you so".

There is a very old saying in Mexico: Los de abajo seremos los de arriba! The ones below will be on top And this has come to pass! navegator That certainly hasn't happened in the last two years. The previous 30 years were great!
