    When you say truck, I assume you mean a pickup truck – not an 18 wheeler, correct? Where is the vehicle now? Would we have to cross the border with it? Are we just dropping it off at an address in Loreto? Are you paying to cover all the expenses + travel back home + something for our time?

    I use facebook but mainly to keep up with friends and family who aren’t close by. The Talk Baja group on facebook has gotten so big it’s hard to follow some thread sometimes but I will give Ron credit for the way he manages to keep it civil and off of politics. So many groups and forums today have gotten ruined by fighting including one popular Baja forum where it seems like politics bleed into every single thread. I for one really appreciate this website.

    A couple of buddies and I did the same thing right after graduating from high school but we are all Latinos and two of us were native Spanish speaking. A cop tried to bust us for drinking in public and even handcuffed us in the back of his car, trying bluff us into coming up with some more money than the 40 dollars we gave him, pulling out our pockets showing him that we didn’t have any more. He finally gave up and let us go. He never checked our shoes where were carrying most of our money.

    At first I was thinking this sounded like a coverup by the Rosarito police but now following this story for the last week including all of the wacko comments on the GoFundMe page the family started, I am thinking this is looking more and more like they are just trying to milk this poor guys death for all the money they can get. Sorry of that offends anybody but that is how it looks to me at this point. @mx-rider is right, something is not adding up with the wife’s story and allegations.

    That’s really helpful to know @BajaBound and thanks for taking the time to explain it. Definitely going to change the way I look at insurance for Mexico now. Previously I just assumed I was completely covered no matter what when south of the border.

    Thanks for the video. I always thought the island was much more desolate.

    It takes a special person to manage that large of a group, it really must feel like herding cats at times.

    Americans aren’t used to the idea of negotiating their rent. It’s supply and demand and complaining about it won’t change what is happening. Best to have a plan and react before it’s too late.

    Some of the members who were banned from Talk Baja have even formed their own group where they can scream, rant and attack each other all they want with no moderation. I couldn’t think of a better place for them – LOL!

    Yes, Nomad was once a great resource but it degraded down into where it is mostly David Kier’s personal sandbox to push far right politics in a majority of the threads today. They may not start that way but they end there if the thread stays active long enough. Nomad stopped being a useful tool when the Forum owner let that happen.

    Another one was fulano’s forum. It started out pretty good when he just focused on posting translated news stories. But over time he allowed his sarcasm and personal views to seep into his news posts which became red meat for a few dozen trolls that joined and he encouraged. Some alleged that a lot of the trolls were fulano himself posting behind aliases / alter egos. Who knows and who cares. Over time the fulano forum went from being a good news source to just a webpage to bash anything Baja related where he would air his personal grievances with people. He was always trying to humiliate and dox anybody who disagreed with him and it really made him look narcissistic and childish.

    He lost me and most of his followers when he turned that corner and his forum didn’t last much longer. I heard his Facebook group followed a similar pattern and is gone too. Today it’s really easy to get the news from Mexico translated automatically, so he really lost his gimmick I think. It’s too bad because he started off initially with something that worked.

    I grew up in Tijuana as a young boy and I admit, when I was 15 or 16 I used the services of a “working girl” a couple of times but we all knew better than to go any where near Revolucion or Coahuila. Way too expensive and a cop always nearby ready to squeeze some cash out of you.

    The cop probably split it with the hooker or may have confiscated all of it and kept it for himself. That’s what happens when you operate on the edge down there and especially in the red light district where the girls are sometimes easy prey for corrupt cars too. It’s a vicious circle.

    That amount of coke is much more than for personal use so yes, he would have gotten charged with trafficking drugs. What a knucklehead.

    Yeah, that’s usually something you can get out of with a couple of hundred dollars at most.
