  1. Included in the US relief package was the legalization of "digital currency" . France is playing with the idea and Australia appears to be ready to go. The US petro dollar appears to be doomed due to inflation, and more "relief" packages coming down the pike, oil prices so low, national debt, etc. I am extremely concerned that the dollars I have in the bank will soon be worthless and I would rather own a home Lakeside than have dollars in the US banking system. One of the arguments is "paper money can carry viruses", but I am more afraid of an economic collapse than I am of the Chinese virus. In fact I am considering buying two homes, and sell one with owner financing. Any thought?
  2. Withdraw your money and close account. Buy gold and silver. Save it for a rainy day.
  3. I'm in the process of moving Lakeside. I really appreciate the housing choices and low taxes. I love the music, it is everywhere. I love practicing my Spanish, I even like the dogs walking in the streets.
  4. You are also limited to the number of replies to posts/day. At least, I was limited. Seems odd.
  5. https://obamadoesntcare.tumblr.com/post/612434638346010624/mojave-pete-thank-god-for-30-plus-years-of?fbclid=IwAR3jAmu77itmLPUnKEdN7CqWvoPEORcod3rM6cApEyeJYMV1MulKGhb0BV4
  6. That is not what he said. Listen to his speech. You are just repeating the same false information as the press.
  7. We have been looking at lakeside property for some time, and now what I would really like to understand is how the private hospitals are handling the Chinese Virus situation. I'm sure housing prices will plummet, but realistically, what retired person can live in an area without proven medical care? Will the private hospitals be able to handle their paid clientele or will they just operate like IMMS hospitals? Incredibly, we closed on our house in Texas last Thursday and the border is closed! Never thought I would need a coyote to get into Mexico! We are all assuming that the US economy will recover, but even if it does, it could take years for Real Estate prices to recover. Those poor souls depending on their 401K investments are watching their savings dwindle daily. A world recession is in the making. I sold my business recently and had to hold two notes. I doubt I will ever get paid. Small businesses are really hurting. I will say this, if there is a complete monetary collapse, I would rather be Lakeside, where food is produced, then in Dallas TX where everything is trucked in.
  8. I wish I could find a list of EPA approved Mexican vehicles.
  9. Spent a week en El Salvador, they also have topes, but I think they call them "tumulos" and just like Mexico, they are just about everywhere.
  10. Anyone know if a personal use cargo trailer has to have a plate in Mexico? I have heard no. Sure don't see many trailers in Mexico like you do in Texas.
  11. Two of my dogs wouldn't do well in a cargo hold even though they love their crates. My miniature Maltese is probably allowed on board.
  12. I personally love Cozumel. Relaxing, inexpensive, and if you scuba dive, it is outstanding.
  13. Dogs are den animals, and if they have a crate at home, hopefully the trip won't be hard on them. My three dogs love their crates, they frequently nap in them with the door open. Crates, when used properly, are great for training dogs and are not cruel as some folks try to convey. Surely, there are direct flights with no layovers and transfers.
  14. Personally, we have had great experiences with the "In House" doctors. In fact, that is one of the things that attracts us to Mexico, however, we have access to second medical opinions in our family.
  15. I think it is usually 4-6 weeks. However, I found a Mexican immigration lawyer in San Diego who can get them in three weeks, for a fee of course, and you don't have to even be in Mexico! We used his service, because we want to set up insurance, bank account, and start looking at property, but we can't stay in Mex. for 4-6 weeks currently. Waiting for house to sell.
