  1. Last April I crossed at 6am, if I recall it didn’t get light until about 6:45.. Never saw any national guard or police presence, and never had any issues..
  2. i agree…. It’s been so long since RickS was here at Lakeside I doubt if anyone cares what he thinks…
  3. I read the one outside Superlake.. Which I thought was to the point and gave the reasons for the negative review..
  4. It wasn’t an assassination of character, it was a detailed review of his business practices.. I thought it was a fair review listing the reason why this person was giving a negative review…
  5. It’s also a true statement. You might like to use the first one listed in the phone book, but I like to do a little research first, find out who has the most positive or negative reviews.. I think that approach has saved me a lot of headaches over the years..
  6. Many people have had issues with Bellon, I don’t use him as I’ve heard to many negative comments from friends who did use him..
  7. I printed off the email just so I had proof that I actually did it…
  8. Same here.. last July.. Although you do have to make an appointment now, you can’t just walk in and sign the book as we used to do. Its my understanding that there is a large fine if you don’t do within the time limit.
  9. Get yourself a GPS. Then you know in advance which lane to be in and how far to the next turn or exit. I use a Garmin which I think is the best one, I also have the Waze app on my phone which is good, but the trouble with using your cell phone is that sometimes it can lose the signal which is OK as long you are still following the route, but if you have deviated from that route at all without a cell signal it can’t tell you how to get get back on track. That is why I prefer using a GPS for long trips..
  10. Dr Leon said November when I asked him, but that was almost 2 months ago so things could have changed..
  11. Some people just love to be the first to spread doom and gloom in this town.
  12. BS. According to the temperature gauge on my BQ it reaches 525f ..
  13. A You may having been driving that way longer than my 15yrs. Aquascalientes and Zacatecas have never been easy.. the roads are awful the traffic is awful.. Going through Matehuala and SLP is a 10hr drive, And I know because I did it a few months ago…
  14. It may have been the truckers day to celebrate today.. From what I understand each trade has a different day to celebrate..
  15. It was a scam.. They usually pick on females. In the 15yrs I’ve been here I’ve heard of many any know a few people who have been scammed by people pulling the same trick in the parking lot at Walmart..
  16. Don’t take the Zacatecas/Aquascailentes route, the SLP route is much faster and a lot less stress .
  17. Dr Candy offers IV sedation.. she brings in an anesthesiologist from Guadalajara.. ,But I would never recommend her as a dentist..
  18. I need a new stainless steel cooking grid for my BQ, anyone know of a metal worker who uses SS and speaks a few words of English. ?
  19. Most dental offices are not equipped for general anesthesia, a lot of specialized equipment is needed. For IV sedation all you need is an anesthesiologist, an oxygen bottle an a IV pole.. I had IV sedation 4 years ago the cost was 8000 peso plus the dental procedure cost.
  20. Just filled my 20lb BQ across from El Torito, it was 255 peso. Geeez I can remember filling it there for 60 peso.
  21. Dr Haro is still practicing the same as usual.. or he was as of 2 weeks ago.. When I asked about IV sedation he said they don’t offer that option.
  22. I don’t think they do general anesthesia in a dental office, I won’t recommend the dentist but there is at least one dentist at lakeside that will bring in an anesthesiologist who will put you in the twilight zone.. so I’m sure there are others. Dr Haro who is the best dentist at Lakeside, I don’t think he does anesthesia, he is so gentle you don’t need it…
  23. Sorry I mis read your post.. Going north I prefer to cross at the Columbia bridge.. I’ve always found there to be less traffic there in the late afternoon, When I crossed last March there was no traffic at the Columbia crossing, also I like to stay in north Laredo because its close to the big mall and lots of other stores. I did the trip last March but I really didn’t pay much attention as I’ve done it many times before I always stay at the Days Inn just as you come into Laredo on I-35. Left the motel at 6am Go straight down I-35 to bridge #2 lots of signs. After paying the toll to cross the bridge I believe it was $3.50 US. stopped at Mexican customs showed our permanent resident card, he asked what we had purchased while in the US, asked us to open the trunk, he looked inside and said “Have a safe trip” In Spanish. As you leave the customs area follow the road to the left, Boulevard Luis Donaldo Colosio Murrieta. Stay on that road it will take you to 85 and then 85D I always go through Matehuala, SLP 10 hours from leaving the motel……. It was a really good trip never encountered and traffic hold ups or police checkpoints. If you happen to go straight on after Mexican customs, no big deal just take the first left.. it will take you to the Boulevard. A few weeks later had friends that went the Zacatecas route took them 12 hours, getting through Zacatecas and Aquascalientes was horrendous..it may be shorter in mileage but time wise takes a lot longer. The new toll roads around SLP and the one to the Chapala Hwy really make a difference..
