coupla questions:
what's the atm access like down there? im not hot about carrying any more cash on me than i have to...course im broke mostly so that's not usually a problem, but curious.

pardon my ignorance, but where's DF?

and people keep mentioning this transcription work, but of course they are always hesitant to give leads or info. does anyone else know about this kinda work and where to find it?

Most of the ATMS work well but some have fake scanners on them and will take your card and say to come back to the bank when they are open and then thieves will steal your card and info, that is more in Central AM but still some in Mexico too. If you see a huge box that you put your card in protruding out from the ATM dont assume its different, its probably a fake ATM card reader.

is there any part of Mexico that tends more towards the cool and dry? i spose i should consider peru or parts of argentina really, but i am curious if anyone has any experience living in mexico and finding local climates like that.

not there
I posted this question on another thread as well. But I only have a Louisiana state I'd and can't get a passport because of child support, would the cops throw me in jail down there if I was just "passing thru"? Or since I am carrying at least some form of legitimate I'd would they leave me alone for the most part? I am asking you because you seem to have quite a bit of experience down there. Any help with my questions would be appreciated brother... Thanks

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $40.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $40.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $40.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $40.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
