  1. Is it possible you meant Mezcala? Don't know of a place called Mascota, but maybe others do.
  2. Both the Pemex in Riberas and the one at the end of the Libramiento heading towards Guadalajara had gas this morning. I got some at the latter and they only had premium (roja). The line looks intimidating, but I only waited about 15 minutes.
  3. I'm sure that's true Rick. Actually, this was a very old car, in very bad shape, so we only expected "junk value" for it. Even Carmax's offer was more than we'd hoped. We had to drive it up anyway for other reasons, so we are pleased all around.
  4. Thank you all! We went to both Carmax and Tx Auto Direct. Both gave us offers good for 7 and 10 days respectively. Both have multiple locations around Houston. The latter offered twice what Carmax offered, so we took it. So happy I asked you guys! Thank you!
  5. I tried to find the post, but cannot. I have to go permanente soon, so we drove our car NOB this week to Houston and will sell it here before we leave, and then fly back. Someone posted recently that they had sold their car to a place near the Houston airport (IAH), and then hopped on a plane back. But I can't remember where they sold it. I'm pretty sure it wasn't a Carmax. Can anyone help?
  6. Lived in Chapala Haciendas for 3 years and my doorbell has never rung on Halloween, nor have I seen or heard any children on the streets that night. I think it's neighborhood-dependent.
  7. Natasha, I too would like to know how you handle scorpions. We are up on the mountainside and unless we fumigate for scorpions regularly, we are inundated with them. What do you use to keep scorpions out of the house? Sticky traps don't work.
  8. Wookie, I just sent you a PM about this, but it's not clear that it went through. I'm looking for more information on the hacienda wit the underground restaurant. Thanks.
  9. I will get some help. I don't know how to "send to 2222". I can only respond to the original message.
  10. Do you type the 2222 in the message box along with the baja?
  11. Thanks Mostly Lost. No, it is not DAC. We had two meters (two accounts). One was DAC, that account was completely closed. The other account was never DAC. It is that account that continues with our solar power. I'll wait one more cycle. If it is still 75, I'll go ask them about it. Thanks!
  12. We got solar about 6 months ago (10 panels). We have received two bills so far. Both bills were for 2 months and both showed zero net usage. We are making far more than we are using. But the minimum charge we had to pay for 2 months was 75 pesos. Why are all the others only paying 46 pesos for 2 months? I realize it's a small thing, but it seems odd that every one else I talk to that has solar panels is paying 46 minimum and we are paying 75 minimum. Anybody else out there paying 75 minimum and know why?
