this doesnt happen. each port has marinas, marinas have wifi--but code keys are necessary. i let my sprint go bye bye---i use wifi, which kinda suxx, but is available when in marinas and in restaurants....i dont use my puter at sea..only in marinas or in restaurants. la cruz has Cruiser's Comfort
for use by cruisers in the la cruz anchorage--reasonable with wifi and showers...between ensenada and mazatlan i dont know about the wifi situation...mazatlan--in old harbor is club nautico--50 pesos daily for landing dink on a panga dock and use of "cllubhouse" and wifi--talk with francisco--safety for dinks, and showers and wifi....

Just a thought...on page 3 , I read you're 44.
What's your secret to allow drawing your SS at 44?
Or did I read this wrong?

is called disibility and is no secret-qualified folks are disabled by long procedure --and being labelled creates a small income monthly,plus a retroactive sum, not much, also, as it doesnt compete with the income earned prior to the disabling incident, or underlying disease, as the case may be..

you must read the fine and extra fine print on the page received when you actually begin to receive the payments. there is a rule book presented in the packet sent to you when you qualify for the income. mine stated i am able to receive ssdi wherever USPS is able to be delivered.
always read fine print.....

by all means,keep your us bank.i live on funds from the atm.also check which bank charges the least amount to withdraw.right now banamex charges about 30 pesos per withdrawal.bancomer and the cash machines in the convenience stores charge over 60p.also mexican bank accounts are taxed.if you're looking for meds i'd recommend pharmacia familiar.they have branches all over and specialize in generics.

you need your us bank account.
you will have to prove to mexico you are not a drag on their economy .. is also how you will receive your ssdi payments. without the us bank you will not receive your payments.. is more important than the usps delivery clause.
