Just a heads up.

Our outside travel trailer was hit last year. They took our crappy, built-in stereo (that wasnt working, HA!) and our rather expensive alcohol from the states. Like Hendrix Gin, Crown Royal, Ketel One. They removed a very narrow window from the back side and must have put a kid inside.

Probably tossed it all out once they tasted it. Probably thought it had a funny taste, compared to Oso Negro.

Might I ask how they entered, Rich?

Ain't it great having essentially no police force.........and the bad guys know it.

They used a pry bar on the front steel door. Not much you can do when they are that determined.

I found out that a house 2 doors away was completely stripped. Appliances, furniture, phones, sheets, towels, everything. That is bold. Luckily I did not have much worth stealing.

Naw, not in San Carlos.

No mention on the feel-good-posts-only-or-you're-banned board. They are too busy arguing over the moderator's favorite key lime pie.

Pretty hard to discuss it, if it's not reported there.

Pretty hard to discuss things, if they arent allowed over there, too.


Or if the mod discounts comments with, "oh, that happens all the time in the US" or "I am glad to pay less taxes in Mexico and get no water, garbage service, fire, police or road repairs."

Please let's not get into a pissing contest over this. Break ins are happening as they do every summer with so many people away. Just be vigilant.

Hook, love you man but sometimes when people decide to leave Mexico they look for things to support the idea that they made a good decision.

Mexico has problems. I still like living here. When I stop liking it I will leave.

It always astonishes me to see people so devoted to one-up comments. Do we really care what someone else is thinking or how others rationalize their cranky approach to life. Good grief folks, if you are in search of the "perfect place" to live~good luck. Perfection is in the eyes of the beholder so none of us are in a position to judge what another considers perfection. How about if we just let everyone think whatever they want think, and go about our own lives smiling.:cool:

Mexico has problems. I still like living here. When I stop liking it I will leave.


All we've done is left for the summer months, like so many others. My wife found work that she absolutely loves in the summer months, so we have to be gone then. Buying a place in the States for the first time in nine years was 95% because of theat job. Renting was too expensive an option, even in Idaho, and interest rates were at historical lows in late 2016. It was a no-brainer. We are traveling more, internationally, and we dont really want to do that in the good weather months in San Carlos. 


The other 5% was the severe drop off in the fishing I like and how fenced-in San Carlos has become. Very little open desert. Not the Mexico I want for 12 months anymore.


Traveling to other countries has been a real eye-opener, also. Countries that were torn by war only 20-25 years ago (Croatia, Slovenia), AND have absorbed huge influxes of desperate immigrants, manage to , maintain the rule of law, get the trash collected, have water to their homes, fix roads, protect their ecology, etc. And they dont have the advantage of living next to the greatest economy in the world, like Mexico does. They manage to keep it civilized.


Our place is for sale but we fully expect to rent a few months a year in San Carlos, when/if it sells. I guess that assumes that the garbage, roads, security, water situations dont get any worse. Is that too much to expect? Maybe they cant GET any worse. 


Hey, I realize my comments aren't helping the selling. But I come from a media background. The news has to get out. I have gringo friends whose safety could depend on it. Some things are more important that money. 


My Mexican friends and acquaintances are generally not happy with what's going on down there, either. They see it more realistically than gringos who hang out only on gringo boards. 


That's why I chafe at the censorship on the other board. That's why I feel there is power in knowledge. But invested foreigners with their heads in the sand don't want to hear it, sometimes. Then, ignore it, if you like.


One could go days, weeks, months and even years in San Carlos, without experiencing what is going on in the rest of Mexico. The same could be said of La Paz and Cabo San Lucas and Bahia de Los Angeles and San Quintin, only 2-3 years ago. I simply cannot believe what is going on in a beautiful city like La Paz. Colima is another area that has gone to hell in two years.


It's beginning to look like the "new normal" in Mexico. It's the worst I've seen it in my 49 years of traveling to Mexico. 


But if you live in gringo enclaves or only go to all-inclusive beach resorts in Mexico, you may never actually see the violence. At least not so far. That doesn't mean one shouldn't be aware of what's going on.


The menace is all around you, Limey. Dont shoot the messenger.


Let's see what AMLO can do.............

This might be a good time for you to take us through the rules of succession in Mexico, if the president-elect dies in office. Or even before he takes office. What happens? Is there a VP that succeeds?

I hope this guy isnt going to be so cavalier about his safety as leaving in a freakin' Jetta with the window rolled down.


I want to see him succeed. Many Mexicans do.
