    Encantame Towers Owners

    Wells Fargo is quoting 2.875% on a 30 year fixed. Six months from now this is more likely to be higher than lower. I’m not a real estate professional but I‘ve bought and sold a lot of houses. I’m not aware of much sentiment that Arizona markets are in a bubble. While it’s nice to catch the...

    Encantame Towers Owners

    The US economy in general and the government stimulus in particular is largely rigged to continue transfer of wealth to those who are already pretty well off. Multimillionaires are not suffering in the current economy, people who rent and live paycheck to paycheck are getting killed. Equities...

    Looks like lock down will continue for awhile

    I’ve got a science background but there is little to say about the rationale for the screening, which changes all of the time and is often not enforced in any event. Entry in PP is entirely random as is the return through Lukeville. Sometimes I get chewed out because “the border is in a...

    Looks like lock down will continue for awhile

    I entered town from the direction of San Louis RC at 4:30 PM yesterday. The block is still in effect in front of Islas Del Mar. I drove over by the overpass and became third in line in a single lane passing under a tent. All vehicles were being waved through without having to stop. I don’t...

    Moving Kayaks Back and Forth Across Border

    We’re thinking of getting a pair of fishing kayaks for use in Cholla Bay and in the SoCal lakes near our summer home. Ideally I’d like to trailer them back and forth a couple times a year, and they would probably spend equal time on either side. What problems am I going to have with this...

    Fishing tackle for kayak fishing Cholla Bay

    I’m very likely to purchase a Hobie fishing kayak. I was test driving several in Dana Point harbor earlier this week. I grew up fresh water fishing and occasionally did deep sea fishing later, but it’s been decades since I’ve owned any fishing gear. I’d appreciate recommendations for a...

    I returned to the US this morning via Lukeville. The usual Sonyota speed traps plus a new one over a click before the 40 kph zone. Don’t know what the speed limit is there, but I was below it. At the border CBP guy tried to blow smoke up my ass about it being a level 5 border closure and if...

    Looks like lock down will continue for awhile

    I re entered town earlier this PM. I came in through San Louis, south of Yuma. Got a green light at the border. Fast drive down to Puerto Peñasco. At the sanItaly filter I got into the Residents line. The other choice was Tourist. Within 5 minutes I presented my Resident card and CFE...

    Looks like lock down will continue for awhile

    Some people in Sonyota have been putting a vehicle barrier to prevent travel south. When a lot of Americans start being turned back, Lukeville closes to save people a round trip. Travel north is apparently unobstructed.

    Looks like lock down will continue for awhile

    I’ve just added another to my ignore list. Pretty soon I will get mostly Rocky Point news when I come to this forum! on the subject of Rocky Point, the protests in Sonyota are continuing to obstruct travel from Lukeville. I’m planning to come down next weekend and will enter through San Louis.

    Looks like lock down will continue for awhile

    I was in Rocky Point from January to the end of June, and I’ll be back every several weeks through the summer. The chaos and rudeness on this forum and most of the Facebook pages is in no way reflected by the kindness of the actual expats you meet in Rocky Point. Maybe there are some rough...

    Yes. There are a couple of spamming trolls who unspool their chaff here for all to wonder at without demonstrating any knowledge or appreciation of Rocky Point. I have just engaged the ignore button on one of them.

    Question for kayakers

    I’m looking at more substantial Hobie fishing kayaks. Maybe have one by this winter.

    I’m in Southern California right now, and it‘s quite bad up here. My wife is going into LA for a Drs appointment at a major medical center. She’s scheduled to get an antibody test which we expect to be negative. I‘ll see what she learns visiting one of the largest medical centers in the state.

    Well, to be perfectly fair, the average of several recent, highly authoritative polls do show a neck and neck race in Texas.
