    Re: Charlatans, Hucksters, and Highway men

    I've been pulled over at that exact spot before. The cops tried to give me a ticket for crossing the double yellow line, well they have one lane shut down there permanently and the traffic takes...

    I made the run through Penas Blancas to Liberia airport yesterday... many people still wearing masks, mostly workers. The border crossing was really fast, hardly any tourists. No one said anything...

    Re: 2021 - Fresh crap...

    Similar thing happened to us. My son was born in the USA and went with his mother to visit grandma in Nicaragua. Migration would not let him leave the country to return to the USA until he obtained...

    Re: The Plot thickens, or the plot thins

    Additional posts are not bracing. Bracing is adding diagonal supports. If you take a look most steel buildings utilize round bar with threaded rods that form Xs across the walls and roof sections to...

    Re: Up-to-date travel info

    I crossed thru CR yesterday. They didn't ask to see anything except onward travel for the transito visa. A woman was stuck in the NI/CR no man's land trying to enter Nicaragua without a PCR test. ...

    Re: The Plot thickens, or the plot thins

    Agree. that material is for walls only. It is super noisy when used as roofing material, it moves a ton just from temperature change. The Ferromax 24 gauge aluminizado is the best material available...

    Not odd at all. Crypto is very traceable unless you're talking about privacy coins like Monero or Pirate Coin

    KWP, with all the theft problems you have from your vago neighbors, I wouldn't advise getting cows. It will not be funny finding the carcasses after they walk the cows to the bottom of your place and...

    Re: Buying Property in Nicaragua

    In my area in the Leon department, I'd estimate 90%+ of properties are not registered. Its ridiculously expensive to register an escritura so most people don't. If the owner on the cadastro registry...

    Re: YouTube of the day

    Good idea. Or maybe also buy a spare battery to have as a replacement. How long do Prius batteries last? I have a Tesla Model S battery pack from a wrecked car, I disassembled the pack into the...

    Re: The Plot thickens, or the plot thins

    The Emmedue panels sold by Suminas (half a block down from the Pricesmart in Plaza Espana) are far superior to the Covintec panels. They have a corrugated foam surface and better wire mesh for a...

    Bill you must really miss Nicaragua to be watching videos of people driving around in Managua!!!
  19. Re: Starlink in Nicaragua ---- EVENTUALLY

    It likely won't work in unapproved locations. The dishes are geo-locked to your service address. If you move the dish someplace and don't update the service address, it no longer works.
  20. Re: Starlink in Nicaragua ---- EVENTUALLY

    I signed up for Starlink in Nicaragua two years ago, they say it will be available next year but who knows. I have Starlink service in Montana and it's awesome, 300Mbps down/200 up, very low latency....

  23. Re: Shipping from Costa Rica to Nicaragua

    Probably just have to have it sent to Miami and have a freight forwarder send it on to Managua. CargoTrans could probably forward from CR but they're kind of pricey.
  24. Re: Shipping from Costa Rica to Nicaragua

    What in the world do you want to order that "can't be sent to Nicaragua", but by some miracle can go to CR instead???

    Re: Paying overage fine

    This was at the Penas Blancas border. I really doubt going to Managua to pay the overstay fine is going to be any faster, but who knows. Last time I crossed into Nicaragua there, about two weeks...
