  1. Checkpoint or point where they check, no I was not pulled over this time by a patrol car, and since I learned to drive in Guadalajara in 1976 I've never been" shaken down" which I interpret as being asked for money for no infraction. I have no hesitation driving daytime with all my papers in order, but both my license and tarjeta de circulacion required replacement here in Jalisco so I was stuck having to face the consequences on the way home. Glad I could pay on the spot to continue rather than deal with tickets and or worse in Nuevo Laredo. No "talking" out of not having a driver's license or circulation card without some sort of payout. Shit happens and I lost my sacrificial wallet with them inside.
  2. After Columbia bridge you have to drive about 20 km before reaching the toll road. The check point was just before the toll roads. 3 National guard patrol cars were parked by the side of the road and I almost drove by when one of them flagged me over. Last year I was pulled over immediately after the immigration, but I had everything in order and wasn't guilty of any road infraction, so he let me go. They are always friendly at least
  3. Lots of cans available ( more than photo shows ) , $35 each for the BLUE, $40 each for science Diet. Located near Panchos Riberas
  4. I just drove across with my dog. Nobody cared about any paperwork coming or going.
  5. oh, I bet a guardia national officer would have accepted a healthy "offering". I just returned from the US and was without any drivers license or tarjeta de circulacion ( both were lost on the way up ). I ended up paying 1200 to be on my way at a random check point. Got replacements for both when I returned lakeside. Mexico was playing in the world cup so hardly any wait at any of the local offices For those who say to never pay a "bribe", to each his own, I chose the easy way to continue and was in no way interested in the legal fines and ramifications in Nuevo Laredo. Luckily I didn't lose my permanente card !
  6. Workers have to get around, as long as it runs, it will be on the roads. I wish I could have taken pictures of some of the jalopies I've seen over the years. In Mexico you as a driver have to be prepared for anything on the roads
  7. Thanks for this and to the facebook poster: I think the conclusion giving all expats a bad name is a little disrespectful to everyone. One or two bad apples doesn't sour the whole batch and the locals I'm sure aren't going to judge ALL expats especially as the facebook poster mentioned they were some Mexicans complaining as well. btw , it wasn't me,but 9 days might have driven me over the edge. The cohetes seem to be increasing in size, volume and frequency every year. Too bad they don't require chips inside, they might not have any !
  8. please give us a reading outside if possible
  9. In order to get away from the sound of these cohetes so my dog won't panic during a walk, I took him to Cristiania Park in Chapala....and we could still hear them. Those who say "learn to live with them" are correct, we really have no choice...but to like them, hell no
  10. I was able to print out a document which will allow payment at OXXO.
  11. Sorry but the website just says " Paseo Ramon Corona" Where exactly is it ? Thanks
  12. Medium duty home gym Located in Riberas $5800 pesos
  13. Expect prices to have doubled...
  14. I need to kill an underground termite ant colony. I tried "AZUL MORTAL " from the ferreteria, but they don't care and just pop out somewhere else. Suggestions ?
  15. Lets keep things in perspective. There used to be a golf course on the edge of Riberas ...which is now back under water.
  16. I'm surprised someone hasn't put a fence up and "claimed it" , sounds like the owner is MIA
  17. Right now it is free, and yes there are lots trees for shade. The entrance is on the left as you enter the park.
  18. I went this morning, free entry and parking. One section for large dogs, one for smaller ones. Opens at 9am
  19. Back on topic, the bike path is well maintained, I see crews cleaning it all the time. Rode it today and had to go around a work truck which was collecting debris and mud. Good thing because the path has become a destination in itself for bikers from out of the area on weekends.
  20. Yes, I received same email but haven't studied how it will affect me.
  21. Yes, that's why I turned on the the defrost with AC. Wet dog inside was fogging up the windshield inside big time, but I didnĀ“t want ice cold air. Good tip to keep the compressor libricated.
  22. Pretty sure my mistake was entering my real number when I bought a bus ticket online......Never had a problem doing that with airline tickets, but right after the bus ticket purchase the calls started, sometimes as early as 7am. I can't change my settings to only receive calls from my contact list because of deliveries from Amazon and Mercadolibre... Hopefully the registry will stop the calls.
  23. Not here. Guadalajara only has a two number area code as well as Mexico City, and Monterrey. Rest of Mexico has three digit area code. According to Wikipedia Website accepted my entry using only two numbers for the Lada. 33
