Re: Long haired dogs and warm climates

Ah, yes ! Good ol' Charlie !



Lots of country songs are based on the same tune.

Re: Long haired dogs and warm climates

Uneasy Rider is a different song that Long Haired Country Boy but I like them both.

depending on where in mexico youplan on spending most time, climate varies much. in desert is worst, mazatlan has tropics and desert-- 120 and 90 percent. air conditioner in a marina. affordable for me.
winter mazatlan is cold desert nights warm comfy days. lowest temp i recorded there was 46 f. water is also cooler.

up sea of cortez baja is a peninsula of desert. across s0c from that is also desert. same as phoenix. water cold in winter. gets damncold up there.

south of mazatlan--la cruz de huanacaxtle, nayarit--i found summers 95f and 95 percent. winters comfy . water 78-95f.

barra de navidad summers 85-90f humidity 99900000percent. yes you read that right. winters, 85=78f with humidity 80-70 pecent. n ot bad. ocean water 90+f. lagoon water 100f. at present, year round. check for self in passage weather and wunderground sst graphics, if you disbelieve me. .

zihuat summers 90 winters 85
winter humidity 75 percent, summer i dunno as i wasnt there in summer. not a cane hole. water 85-90f

Re: Long haired dogs and warm climates

as for dog and temps--momma bred siberian hiskies many years, she relocated from st louis to phoenix aridzona, with her dogs. the dogs adapted to the move by losing their fur in manner they needed to lose it.. momma didnt shave em. they shed it off. each year they grew in less fur. they loved living UNDER the houses dad made for each of em with shade and comforts, which pissed him off--i remember that he called em ingrates on 4 legs.... and some other choice goodies..but the combination of cool dirt and deep shade insulated from any sun was enough to make em all smile. my black and white furry blue eyed siblings.
cherise, if you come here, do come to where i am and spend some time. in winter i anchor out, and summer i use marinas. this winter i will be in slip,hopefully in mazatlan, as boat is in dire need of repairs to spars asap.
in winter, weather is nice. that is why it is HIGH season. good weather. awesome. better closer to latitudes in teens.
winters are not marina times, and summers are not anchoring out times -- prices reflect this.

Re: Long haired dogs and warm climates

Great breakdown Zee thanks! Girl you know I wanna come to Barra!!! Some good friends loved cruising the gold coast.

Thats a funny dog story. I come from a very non-handy family. My generous parents had a gorgeous insulated dog house made for my first collie (while living in Canada with cold, nasty winters and humid summers). You know the $500 kind (thats 1980s dollars!). She did not enter it once. We tried, she darted right out. Guess where she went? Under the deck.
Dogs are funny, I guess thats why we love our pets, so dearly.

Zee, side note. It sure sounds like you are in a great spot. I could totally justify slipping in the summer there just for use of the resort facilities. However, I emailed them for slip prices for a friend, they said $8.5/ft plus electric and taxes. $8.5/ft is about $.28/ft/d, but I've no clue what taxes and electric would come to. He is on a 40 Jeanneau, likes his ice maker and a/c. What's your guess?
