    Fund raiser for local star

    I knew I might get pounded on for my posting...but I believe the issue is one we all can learn from. I recently read about another insurance option, posted on the other board, and am including the link, in case there are those who might want to check them out...https://guardianinsurancemx.com/ You can read the posts from those who did on the other board. I plan to sign up myself.

    Fund raiser for local star

    I would like to know if there is any private or other health insurance at Lakeside that would have helped with these costs.

  8. I drove alone to Lakeside 4 times, twice from Oregon and twice from Maine. I used only the toll roads, drove only during day light hours and stayed at 'No Tell Motels'...where my car and I were safe. I did not have any problems. My Spanish is good enough to get by but not perfect. But I did worry about having a flat tire or something like that...but I made sure my car was in good shape before I left the US. I found it more scary just driving on the carretera!

    Process for extending TIP

    Yes...sad but true. That is exactly what happened to me...and I did all the correct paperwork through Spencer's office. Apparently he explained to me, as above, that I was not the only one who lost the TIP. They can be greedy bastards who just don't give a damn...so good luck! If you are coming in on a regular tourist visa, your chances of a refund when you leave are better.

    Process for extending TIP

    FYI...I did this through Spencer's office, however, I never got my TIP back. Lost $300.00 and all my T's were crossed and my I's were dotted. 😒
