To bad you don't represent a fortune 100 company!! .. I know exactly which ones hate "me" as you put it ,but that portion of the population doesn't count for much considering that they have been co-opted by the sort of Political thought that seems to have saturated your way of thinking.. You know exactly which percentage is BS you wrote it..From the way you set up that first post I could see where someone would call you a few years later and tell you that you were right ,you probably set them up for a short sale !!

You just took the second sentence in my first post which was an opinion, and turned it into a fact.


I believe anyone's trip to Latin America will most likely be a safe one, but I think you need to be situationally aware. The other thing is, never use a tourists opinion of the safety of any given country.

Re: More problems in Mexico

yea, i guess you're right. my suggestion of being situationally aware in Mexico as well as all of Latin America may not have been the best advice, even though situational awareness is the centerpiece of training for Officer Candidates School in the U.S. Armed Forces. there's no need for that, and anyone practicing that is a 'scaredy cat'.

so carry on, and remember to never ever be situationally aware, no need for it....everyone loves you here.

Thanks. We will. Armed. And not in Mexico, the southern Philippines, and all of Africa except Cape Town.

Sail safe, Stu.
Wow, I don't think I have ever seen anyone give so much credence to a State Department Warning. I guess it give you a reason to not go to a place you really don't want to go to. It is called ''Case Building''. Not necessary, just don't go. No need to try to scare other folks.

Re: More problems in Mexico

I love Mexico and it's people! I'm finally back after 9 yrs sailing around the world. Looked forward to it the whole time. There's 1 or 2 bad people anywhere you go that can place a bad tag on any country. Zee, see you in Bara soon!

Nope, you misunderstood, wouldn't be the first time.

...situational awareness is important wherever you are. At all times.

The s-c crack was for the "don't go to MX - you'll automatically get killed or be forced to eat cat taco in 1995" crowd.

no, i didn't misunderstand. in my second post, i brought up situational awareness, and tropical said i was 'opinionated'. i was only referring to his comment with the 'don't be situationally aware'. that was sarcasm and doesn't translate to well when it's written. go back and read the comments in order, and you'll see.

i'm only saying that if you're up for the trip, then go for it, but you're not in kansas anymore.

i have no complaint with portclyde, if he doesn't like the place, then he shouldn't come. he's entitled to any opinion he wants, but i think he's more right than wrong.

i've only had two problems in Mexico, one in San Blas, just north of Puerto Vallarta, where a guy who was not an employee of the lot, demanded $5 from me to park my rental jeep at the beach. that was ok, even though locals probably get charged $1. he then pulled a machete on me, thinking that he needed to persuade me, and that was totally uncalled for; i would have given him the money without the machete.

the second problem wasn't so easily resolved. i once belonged to a 'sports dating' club in Los Angleles, and we had a trip to Ensenada. i hooked up with 2 extremely strong looking, atheletic appearing women, and another man about 55, and the four of us went for a walk.

a car load of men pulled up and got out, and you could see they weren't collecting for the Red Cross; they were trying to rob us. the two very able women went midevil on these Mexicans, kicking and punching them furiously. the Mexicans had these big wrenches, and i'm afraid the gentleman with us was beaten pretty badly with them. he really got hurt. i stood and watched the whole thing, it happened pretty fast, nothing i could do, nobody approached me, i was about 50 at the time. i think the Mexicans were freaked out instantly with the fighting power of the women we were with. they saw we were up there in age, and they thought the woman wouldn't do anything.

now in my first post on this thread, i said to have a flash wallet. instead of fighting with these guys, if the women and the other man pulled out a wallet stuffed with phony bills, we could have returned to the bar and had some serious laughs.
