  2. The trucks in our community are out of control with their screaming engine brakes, it's everywhere, continually. The noise sounds like a jack hammer at rapid speed. Coming into town from the airport way, it begins at 4 am and goes all day long, right down into Chapala. Same down the libramento.. I know many of the residents there are fed up as well. Harry B .....is there anything you can do to get this in front of our local government?? It's ruining the tranquility if our community. It's everywhere lakeside and many local Mexican residents are also fed up and talking about it. It's understood that there is alot of building going on, but these truck drivers are ignorant and disrespectful of our community. There is no need to be using engine brakes in developed areas. What can be done other than moving out if the area?

  3. I cancelled my Canadian and US cell phone plans and use Telcel exclusively across North America. Works flawlessly at a fraction of the cost. Just activate roaming, no extra charges. I use the amigo sin limites plan at 200 pesos / month, pay as needed. If you want a local Canadian number: sign up on Fongo app for a free canadian phone number (sign up when in Canada, or abroad via a quality vpn service; once setup it works across the world to call and receive calls as though you were in Canada, including 800 numbers; I use it with my 2 Canadian banks too). Search this forum for details, it's been covered before.

  4. Yesterday I ran into one of the physical therapists I had at Jorge Ulloa’s clinic. He has gone out on his own recently after being on Jorge’s staff for over five years. I thought he was terrific. He is making house calls for PT, massages and personal training, he says, as he sets up his new place. If you’re looking for at-home PT, give him a call. He's a certified physical therapist and personal trainer. His English is perfect. Angel Ruiz: 331 082 4260. Lexy

  5. I live two blocks from the #2 Chapala Haciendas entrance. Yes, I occasionally hear trucks and I do mean occasionally, but I never get my panties in a twist over this. The hill between Ixtlahuacan and Chapala is steep enough that when I used to drive a regular passenger van I had to downshift AND apply my brakes frequently to keep the vehicle at a safe speed. Accidents in all areas on both sides of this hill happen so often as to serve as a warning to those who travel this carretera to slow down. The same is true of the Libramiento. Personally, whatever these trucks must do to keep from having having or causing a major traffic incident is okay with me. They and only they know what is necessary for their truck. I NEVER believe they are deliberately making unnecessary noise. If it bothers you so much (you complain often, so I assume so) now is a great time to sell and move somewhere on the flats. New area, new noises, but maybe you'll be happier.

  8. Absolutely. The whole subject of bedding is crazy-subjective, even worse than restaurant recommendations. Nonetheless, WRT mattresses, we are very pleased with a king we bought at the tiny place called Colchonera del Descanso, at the top of San Jose near la carretera in San Antonio, on the corner. Looks can deceive. https://goo.gl/maps/1cXnqahU1c6bKJgQ7 WRT sheets, I'm sure Bed Bath and Beyond can hook you up. But, if you already have occasion to go to Costco (usually Santa Anita for us), look for the house-brand product with the ordinary name Kirkland Signature Juego de Sábanas. We bought a king set (with four pillow cases) for around $90 US, and liked them so much we ordered a second. https://www.costco.com.mx/Hogar-y-Bano/Blancos-del-Hogar/Sabanas-y-Fundas/Kirkland-Signature-Juego-de-Sabanas-King-Size/p/VA1113499 https://goo.gl/maps/grc4o67bsQAwy4GUA LQ

  10. The noisiest place for me is anywhere on the carretera from Chapala to SJC. The truck traffic and narrowness of the road through Ajijic amplifies the noise to such a degree conversation is nearly impossible. As with the trucks on either hill the OP mentioned, the drivers can't be faulted. They're doing their job and I can decide if I want to visit Ajijic or not.

  12. This last time that I went to Canada, my phone worked BUT I was told that "Roaming" had to be turned on. Just be prepared to use up your battery charge more quickly. Search google for how to turn the roaming on for your particular phone and model. I was pleased that the phone worked because the previous time, when I didn't know about roaming, it did not.

  17. I appreciate the confirmation that it's a New Balance belt, but I already mentioned that...still, it's nice to be right when guessing what something is . The bit in the back is for a battery so that's why I asked if maybe it was part of a pedometer (older style)or something. There is absolutely nothing on their website and it's probably been quite a few years since he passed (and to be honest, he was not exactly young so doubt it had been used for a very long time), so this may end up staying in the "???" category (after the dumpster). ETA: I checked out the stretchy belts, too, but they were more for carrying things and/or with illumination. This reminds me more of a counter (like the little "button" on my bike wheel that measures the number of times my wheel turns and sends that info to a counter to determine the distance) that sends information to the "base."
