    Trading Post

    I have found the Penasco buy/sell/trade Facebook group to be best. The only “problem” is some people don’t post a price.

    Covid Vaccination

    Got my first shot last week. It was the Moderna vaccine. My arm was a little sore for a couple days. Apparently the 2nd shot of the Moderna has seen more side effects (feeling a little lousy for a day) than the 2nd shot of the Pfiser.

    Covid Vaccination

    Masks and distancing don't work? Can you send me a source for this research? Until 2 weeks ago when I officially retired I worked and virtually met with Virologists and Microbiologists nearly every day. I am certain they would love to see this research since it conflicts with all of the...

    Sonoyta By Pass

    We live in Penasco full time and go back and for a couple times a month. We usually travel mid-week and don’t see many cars pulled over. When we returned from Phoenix yesterday going through Sonoyta about 4 we must have seen at least 6 cars pulled over at various points. We have a dash cam and...

    The Police in Sonoita are out of control!

    Just a little side note...We live full time in Playa Encanto and just took our Polaris Ranger to visit Miramar for the first time. What a cool little community !

    The Police in Sonoita are out of control!

    Do you have any idea how you would get this info from the city of Sonoyta? I suspect this won't be easy, especially for an American.

    The Police in Sonoita are out of control!

    We drive though Sonoyta at least once a month, usually more. I have found that my best friend I. Sonoyta is my dash cam. We always drive under the limit, come to complete stops etc and still have been pulled over a couple times. I politely ask the officer to look at the dash cam video with me...

    They raise the price of some items in Puerto Peñasco

    I actually have been on this forum a long time. I used to post under another name (tndr_cpl) which was an old email address my wife and I used to use. It used to be that people was almost all supportive and I’d get lots of great info. Now it seems that some see this as a substitute for WWE or...

    They raise the price of some items in Puerto Peñasco

    Just as an FYI, the rising gas prices have nothing to do with the Keystone pipeline being closed. As noted above it was a myriad of other factors. This is not to voice a pro or con opinion about the pipeline, it just happens that the current rise in gas (oil) prices has nothing to do with that...

    Wi-fi / internet

    For me it's a bit strange. I use Surfshark VPN. I have a "smart" tv, but it doesn't have it's own browser built in so I installed the VPN on my router. Both Netflix and Amazon catch the VPN. I also have Surfshark on our laptops and our phones. If I turn off the VPN on the router and just use the...

    Mayan guards kicked us out of the estuary while we were fishing today.

    We have recently seen both boats and jet skis in the Estera Marua estuary. Motorized boats are illegal. Maybe they were reacting to this?

    Buying a house with cash vs financing

    Having lived in a number of countries I find the US real estate market unique. The idea of comps, market surveys etc are not all that common for residential properties outside the US and in Canada to some degree. When we bought our house here we decided what we could afford, we found a house...

    Wind Turbines

    Not saying it’s the right thing to do... but if you made drugs legal and sold them cheap you wouldn’t have any market for illegal ones.

    Wind Turbines

    I’m not sure how the discussion went from wind turbines to power lines, but that type of thing happens a lot on the site. Anyway... there have been no studies. (no meaning zero, nada, none) that show any type of risk due to the emissions from wind turbines. There is a very very small risk from...

    Wind Turbines

    We used to have one on our farm. The best hint I can give is to oversize the wiring and minimize the distance from the turbine to the battery. Systems can have A LOT of resistance loss. Having a good handle on your usage will make sizing the system pretty strait forward.
