mexicoma, I can understand you wanting to make this voyage, it is an adventure I can understand that also, as I have undertaken many adventure's some that many would consider a little dangerous, very dangerous, to not dangerous at all, just very much fun, have you considered making this trip when a boat or boats will be doing it also, just in the case something should take place, I think that would be very prudent, it should be a fun venture I wish you well, please post the results when it is complete.
~~~Where is that `````MONKEY ````` on a jet ski, RockyPointJoe when you need him the most?! ~~~```EL CHONGO```~~~ as I recall used to talk about making this journey... ~~~QUIZÁS~~~ We should invite some of the greats back ```COMO``` ~~~~~ THE GREAT HAPPY ~~~~~ or Playa dog, Jerry.... The forum is really starting to dry up and the Facebook page is about as worthless as Facebook itself with random people convoluting the page with ads and rental inquiries.... The forum is a community not just a Facebook page. There's no sense of community on the FB page.... Just a bunch of randoms like every other FB fan page. The one where everyone argues about the highway is pretty epic... Smh. I'd rather be entertained here with ~~~~THE GREAT HAPPY ~~~~~ I think our experiment 10 years ago by starting to cut people off regardless of their input and content hurt the forum. Along with FB. ~~~~````ES```` MUY TRISTE~~~~ this used to be such a great forum.
well said Joe. sad thing is it has a lot to say about people to be drawn to the mindless chatter of Face. I still do not understand why the forum just died almost overnight. the face page is not succesful so it did not draw people away I think.
OK Rubbertoe, I've been a lurker for some time now because frankly this place is boring. If you're not into fishing, etc there's hardly anything on here. We've lost Jeeper who toward the end was more of a lurker than a participant, the old gang has either died or lost interest. It used to be fun and educational. Restaurant reviews, trip experiences, police reports (present company excluded) just plain old poking and railing, and a fun place to visit. There is no humor because honestly if one looks around it seems there is no humor to be found. We take ourselves much to seriously instead of enjoying the moment. I love Rocky Point and the people of Rocky Point. I wish I had the ability to go there again, but my banker and my body seem to reject the thought. I will say I check into the Senoran Resorts Sky live camera every day just to get an RP fix. My advise is to lighten up, enjoy the time there and be a friend. Fishing is great, but enjoying time with friends, the fabulous scenery, a cerveza or two and thanking God for all our blessings is my charge of the day. Adios Amigos
I have been a looker, lurker, for a very long time, yrs. before I finally decided to join couple weeks ago, I must say I do agree with the last three posts 100% , in that all the banning that has taken place over the yrs. it just leaves a BAD taste with me, we have watched as a LOT of good people have been banned, as said above forum has really been forgotten, started a long slide long time ago, one day if we visit and it is no longer here, NO SURPRISE here, participants should value, ALL those that chose to speak, and not be banned, or fear being banned should be left alone, there are a LOT of people here that if they don't like someone or what they said, off to the administrators they go, to get them banned, It is NOT the fun place it use to be, it surprises us that the admin. hasn't noticed and done something about it, LEAVE THE POSTERS ALONE, as Mexico Joe said above "es muy triste" "how sad " what is happening here, if this bs continues we also, as many other good members have done, fade away .
Stuart, posted recently that Tyler banned Jerry. It's on another thread about this forum being quiet.
Banning, people attacking others, FB and lack of interest are the reasons the activity posts on this forum has slowed down a lot.
Just go through the members tab and see all the people who aren't active here anymore.
Since the mini war that occurred at the Bella Serena in Dec. 2013 activity here has steadily declined.
I'm sure lot's of lurkers still out there.
I still like this forum and don't care for how FB is set up or the lazy people who us it as a search site because they're too lazy to look
and know if they post "do I need a passport" (done thousands of times), someone will tell them no or yes. LOL
Yes the RPT FB page isn't very active at all. Jerry post's occasionally on FB, aka Jerry Kelly.
I'm a big fan of the fishing forum on this site and I think there are still a few people that follow it besides myself. It certainly seems like there are a good number of people that prefer this page to the FB alternative.
It's about 80 miles, 2-3 hours with calm conditions and 4-5 hrs. if rougher.
On jet ski without a boat following me, I don't think so.
Ok even with a boat following I don't think so.
A local friend has a 24ft boat with a 120hp outboard on it that took him 8 hours in conditions
that turned bad 30 minutes after he left San Felipe.
He was lucky he bought another 5 gallons of gas in San Felipe before he headed back to Cholla,
otherwise he would have ran out before getting back.
