It brings up sour memories.
I sat for decades and listened and figuratively shook my head.

One jerk was bragging about being a door gunner. I happened to mention I knew someone (Ed Marston) who was a Crew Chief. "Oh no, I wanted to be behind that M60"

I then remarked, "You preferred the starboard M60 over the port side M60?"

Things got real quiet.

If someone has to tell "fibs" to amplify their reality I feel sorry for them.

If my rebuilding 15,000 alternators, and inventing new alternator windings and constructing battery tests bores someone, then they are dealing with the wrong person. Exploring Mexico and Central America, finding unknown ruins in the Lancandon rain forest, and experiencing Mexico 53-years ago is almost too much.

So now when someone spots me in Zihuatanejo or La Costa Alegre, and invites me to what obviously is going to turn out to be a drinking and BS bash, I smile and look confused and respond "No comprendo" Brenda and Jesus will go into fits of laughter.

I feel ashamed enough as it is forgetting some parts of years of study. Like a Colonel who gets a suggestion to fake being a flag officer yet cannot remember which hand to salute with. i.e. my slide rule is corroded frozen [emoticon]

You mean the highly trained comando guy claiming to be a SEAL and can not distinguish the difference between the USMC emblem and the SEAL emblem, and when you ask him if he was trained at North Carolina the answer is yes and of course he is from team 7.

HEY TEQUILLA

I am at the Reynosa border with my F350... It has nothing to do with the camper not having plates (its cargo not a vehicle), but it is with the GVW! I went to the chief customs officer and he told me the same, no pickup over 1/2 ton - crazy. I have also contacted the Mexico consulate here in McAllen, and the Adventuretours office is publishing the info on their website.


Is there any reasoning behind nothing over 1/2 T?? Don't get it, does not seem to make any difference in my mind.

Hopefully Tequila will be in a place where he can respond, I don't know where he is right now.
As I understand it, it has to do with the designation between a cargo hauling vehicle and an RV. Yes, it's different, but remember, it's a foreign country and different rules apply.

Seriously, there are better, legal ways, that cost less and are totally OK.

Hopefully that was pesos not dollars, but still not something that is to be encouraged. It's ALWAYS better to do it legally.

This has to be something peculiar to that one crossing. This is not happening at any of the crossings into Baja or Sonora.

Probably a form of mordida.

For the last year, it's been a problem at most crossings, not just this one.
