  1. What are you talking about Gringo ? If you are responding to my comment to Xena please reread it. His comment " . Or, you can just keep asking strangers on sites like this until you hear an answer you like. " was so unfair and rude as that is not what I am doing.
  2. Hey Xena No reason to be a smart ###. I would of liked something like " got your email and if you need help please contact me ". Maybe that's to complicated for you to understand and if you can't answer a question without being a jerk then don't answer. Read the rules of the board.
  3. I did send Spencer an email back in March with what had happened with the body shop saying that I would possibly need his help. No response at all. I used them to do all my temporary residence permit and Adunana in January but I guess that doesn't mean anything. Any other suggestions ?
  4. I wasn't planning on getting a new car I had to get a new car. A body shop in Riberas that was repairing a dent set my car on fire when grinding. It took from March 10th to May 12th before I could leave Lakeside. I had to threaten with going to the Presidente of Chapala before the shop would do anything. They wanted me to pay half. When I got back to Canada I had a couple of electrical problems and when I took the cowling off it was not a new wiring harness but spliced together and extra wires loose. They said they put in a new wiring harness. I could not check before I left because I couldn't afford any further delays or my work status at home would of been lost. All 3 mechanics I have been to all said to get rid of the car. What to do 😞
  5. Hola I am in Canada right now and I am wondering how to proceed with my TIP when purchasing a new car. My TIP is good till January 4 2021 when I will get my temporary residence visa renewed. When purchasing a vehicle here in Canada how does one get the current TIP linked to the new car ? TIA.
  6. As always Rick you are a wealth of knowledge and super helpful !!!! I did not know that the TIP would be good till my visa expired. I used Spencer's office to do all my temp resident visa and they did do the TIP. I will still be turning it in because I won't be coming back down till December and my visa needs to be renewed by Jan 10 2021. Now when I get my next one in December will the TIP only be good for 6 months ? I plan on getting a 4 year visa so I would think it would be only 6 months Gracias
  7. Hi Rick I now have my temp and don't renew till next Jan so it will be only my TIP to turn in.
  8. Hola Not ever having to return a TIP I am wondering if this photo from On the road in Mexico website is correct or do you have to cross the highway and return it from where you got it ? TIA
  9. Thanks all for your suggestions Very much appreciated
  10. Hi Does anyone know where a person could buy velcro tape and bug screen Lakeside to make some temporary bug screen for my windows. I'm going to replace the windows next year so looking for something that's not expensive. Gracias
  11. Does anyone know where a person would be able to purchase chairs like in the picture ? TIA
  12. Yes but unfortunately is does not work with Canadian CC's
  13. I have the same problem and tried the same things as you but to no avail. Telcel MX
  14. When I was at the Tuesday market about 3-4 weeks ago there was a lady selling sugar free chocolate items. Now that the markets are not open I am having a chocolate craving and wondered if anyone would have her name and any contact information ? Gracias
  15. That's good to hear. That's where I live and I'm heading home
  16. @ 8:50 March 22 I called the Nogales US border service and they said no problems for US and Canadian residents to cross
  17. I thought I would post that because there is a lot of misinformation right now all over the internet.
  18. @ 08:50 Sunday March 22 I called the Nogales USA border crossing and talked to an agent there and Canadians travelling back to Canada from Mexico ARE allowed to cross the border. I told him I was just wintering here in Chapala and he said no issue to cross the border heading home to Canada.
  19. Hi stuphel If you can please keep us up to date on your travel. I'm going to be following you in 2 weeks Gracias
  20. Those findings are the same as being given to me by people at home. I'm sure you/we will be fine.
  21. Hola stuphel Unfortunately I won't be able to cross till probably the 1st week of April or maybe the 2nd due to vehicle problems. I would like to go now and my boss back in Canada would love it as well. I am an infection control officer in the health sector ,semi retired , and because of that I am not anticipating any problems. I know it won't be entering Canada and from what I know so far it should get me into the US. Please let me know how you make out Gracias
