SAN FELIPE TO ROCKY POINT THE WET WAY

I never went crying, not once, not ever in what Stuart, over 20 years all together I'm sure. Hey, I'll give you 10 to 1 that 9 of the 10 that did whine about someone were tight ass Republicans.o_O
Unfortunately, it’s stuff like this Kenny that sends people elsewhere or keeps them lurking and not wanting to contribute.

I remember one of my first posts, and I was commenting about being at the beach there in Rocky Point, and witnessing one of the most amazing lightning storms over the ocean that I have ever seen. And I mentioned something about The beauty of it, and the clouds and the rain as it turned to night, and the lightning storm continued and I mentioned something about God’s creation in full display or something like that. Can’t remember the exact words, but this is a pretty accurate gist of what I shared and how Jerry replied to me.

And what is the immediate reply from Jerry?? it was something like I am a fundamentalist and shallow minded because I believed in God. Or something like that. It was just a full gut punch to someone who was posting something they were genuinely excited about and had never been on a forum before, and thought I was sharing something super positive and Jerry comes out and just hammers me for being small minded about creation and God’s glory, etc.
whatever the case, I wasn’t preaching, I was just sharing how I interpreted what I was watching and I got jumped on like I was a lowly piece of crap joining this forum.

The unprovoked political attacks, and categorizing people while they are trying to talk about a trip from Rocky Point to Sam Felipe, like this thread and what you Kenny just did as an example, happened hundreds of times with you and your buddy Jerry. You guys would emote, get over your ski tips with your hurt feelings or your anger, and go after people for no reason. There are years, and hundreds of posts of you two knuckleheads just jumping on someone because they didn’t have the same beliefs or political views as your tag team did.

So for you to say you never complained, or weren’t a whiner, that is laughable on its face to everyone reading this .

What stinks is that both you and Jerry have had a lot of valuable and interesting input as well. Your history coming down to Rocky Point in the 60s and 70s is really fun to read. But then all of a sudden, there is some mention in the middle of that interesting thread about your love for Obama, or how you hate Republicans and conservatives, and who knows what else, and then the thread was just trashed.

And the last thing that has always been confusing to me is how does a guy like Jerry, who seems to have unlimited time to post on this Rocky Point form, and for the most part comes across as a proponent for Mexico, can bash and beat up and criticize and make fun Mexico relentlessly, or of people who bought condominiums, or who don’t live in Santo Tomas or who don’t do the things he does, he would just bash and bash and bash.

That was always a strange bipolar type of contribution Jerry made that I could never really figure out.

So for me, I do wish there was more contribution and input on this forum. There are a lot of very interesting and smart people, who have some really great stuff to contribute, and I have very much enjoyed and learned a ton on this forum But I can also see why people lurch for a long time or have gone away, because there always seems to be a dominance by guys like Jerry, or JJ, who bullying, ridicule, and demean. And it gets old after a while ...

The shoe fit perfectly, didn't it Larry? It could be just me, but it sure looks like it's you Larry that is doing the personal bashing, and of someone who can't respond. Kind of cowardly, I'd say.

well....Interesting reading. I used to post a ton of stuff here and almost every-time i did I got labeled a cheer leader by some, and by some I mean the loudest voices out there. I didn't get any back up from folks that knew me so I quit posting. You have to support the positive people or just give in to the negative. I think the forum is a great resource for researchers. As the forum relates to FB.... it is apples to oranges. FB has a huge audience of really weird people but is wildly popular right now. I make a living off of fb..I do not make a living off or RP talk. I want to contribute but don't want to be torched by some negative POS on a rant. I have been and always will be pro Mex and as I get older I care much less about some negative opinion from someone who doesn't share my life experiences.

You are funny guy. Glad to see that Jerry's favorite apologist is still playing his brother's keeper role, as always.

Nothing I said was personal bashing, it was truth. It is what happened, just explaining history.

As far as cowardly, there is nothing I would say differently if Jerry could respond. HOWEVER, "It could be me" as you stated, but I find the reason he cannot reply pretty ironic. What is that reason Kenny ?

Oh, because he is banned. Hmmmm....

And, that kind of validates the point I was making in my prior post.

Politics, Kenny. As you well know, it drove much of the drama here and why it was relegated to it's own place in hell on here.

The divide has only grown larger in the time we've been around.

As for a jetski to San Felipe? Cray-Cray talk right there. I've transited back and forth from San Carlos to Santa Rosalia a few times, but only on the best of days, in a 28 ft. very seaworthy boat. 75 miles each way. If you're not experienced with the Baja side, I wouldn't attempt it. There are wind fields and patterns that if you're not aware of, they will kill you. There are days I've been at the 51 and it was like a lake, flat calm. Meanwhile, those that went south to the Caballo turned around and came back because it was so rough and blowing to beat all hell. All this in about a 35 mile difference.

Because of the mountains along Baja, it creates different weather patterns than you'll have in Penasco. The same is true all along the Baja side of the Cortez.

So, good luck with that if you decide to do it.

Russ, You are a cheerleader for Penasco.
You are person that see's the world from a glass that is more than half full vs half empty (or totally empty from some people).
I'll take the positive any day.

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.
"do I need a passport" how about " who sells the best tacos" or "where can I get some real good tamales" or then there is this one peek "there is going to be a fashion show this weekend at the park be sure to be there early because the tacos may go dry" which amounts to nothing more than "Mexican beach shit" ! ! ! LOL LOL LOL that one got real OLD real fast, but is still posted :kissit:

rplarry hadn't made a post since April 10th, but all of a sudden he gets into attack mode and starts his personal bashing with three posts when I get a little edgy. Ha, he must miss Jerry a lot. If rplary feels "vindicated" as he said, well thanks Larry, I'm sleeping a lot better now... With backup and a little planning (that means having a lot of time waiting for the right conditions), it's very doable. 26 miles across the sea, Santa Catalina is a waiting for me.

Unfortunately there are many uninformed people out there who come to forums like this one for information. Or go to FB because they don't know how to search for info. There is so much non accurate info on the web (known as BS). Sure there are people promoting venues to benefit from.
FB is a strange kind of Forum, all the info gets buried so fast and the result is many questions get asked over and over because of FB devotees
needs for instant gratification
That's the world of social media we now live in, like it or not.

80 > 26 by a long shot! I could see that trip to Catalina in a group like that. I'd want a boat as back-up. You know as well as I do Mexican waters are very unforgiving -- there isn't always someone to come and get you when things go wrong. Still, it would definitely be an "adventure." Most Jetskis aren't going to have the range to make it from Penasco to San Felipe on a 16 gallon tank of gas.

This site has some great info on gas mileage/range. Depending on the Jetski itself, it *could* be doable.

"society on their cellphones / mindless idiots"
Tu sha, we were in Pizza Hut a month ago having pizza and wings, ( wings are good btw - the HOT ones ) when a couple fat chicks walk in sucking on their phones, from the time they sat down till they left, they kept sucking, never said a word to each other, look up, no just kept sucking, I bet if you would open their head a bunch of night crawlers would fall out, I guess it was ok for them, as they had "numb nuts" written on their faces, no hope for them, their brains are already warped.

Before Jetski's became so big, it was a hot boat pulling a waterskier in a race to Cataline that caught people attention and a much tougher trip in my opinion. Oh, they still do it, but the old style SK Boats they used then with big V8's were badass on their own.
