    Funniest news was a Nic truck driver with wuflu wearing chorts and chanclas being escorted by 2 Ticos in space suits to the border where he was received by a guard in a freshly starched uniform with no mask.

    Fiesbuuk pix of a furgon unloading coffins at the improvised clinic in town.

    Friend in Hond. says they are locked down tight. They can each go out only 1 day a week based on their last digit of their ID. Police and military patrols everywhere but somehow beggars everywhere, too.

    read in last few days Costa Rica has turned away more suspected infected truck drivers than are reported cases here.

    Haha, furgon was a grocery truck that parked in front of a clinic because there was no parking at the super several blocks away. Load covered in plastic because the rains have started. People nervous and seeing things. Rumors of a quarantine at end of May. Yawn...are they going to quarantine the sick or everybody? Easy answer, I guess.

    Another email from consulate--nothing much new, just have 2 weeks of food and medicine ready. As in the US, I guess everybody is thinking of 2 week solutions to a 3 month problem. I hope that doesn't mean the supers are going to be crowded. these Consulate advisories get post on FB and Nicas see them.

    One solution to the sickee Nica drivers would be to require tico and Honduran drivers and let the trucks go through with new drivers. Maybe an incentive to invent driver-less trucks. Common, silicon valley, let's replace people with chips!

    This is NOT worth watching - poor video - BUT it's a decent soliloquy bitching about corporations and the working life, with a happy 3 min ending.

    You can talk to someone who has hard times and just know they will pull through - This kid is one of them...

    Social blade puts him up as a "B content provider so he gets a good supplement - Who knows what that is these days with all of the ad turn down.


    On his bit on corporatism I would have to agree. Being one of the very few hired back to an old position it is refreshing to look at my terminators - Tell them exactly what happened on the customer complaint - How has to be fixed and how quickly it has to be done.

    In the few times it got heated I said you can fire me again, it is cheaper now, the discussion ceased and the work needed proceeded.

    This is another "Joe" video from Joe and Zach 's survival. His dad acquired a plot of land in the MN back woods decades ago - About 10 yrs ago Joe, and his young Son Zach, built a platform tent - It is quite the structure - I may have posted one or two here over the last year and a bit. He typically posts one about this time (Spring trip) one in Nov (Deer hunting) and one in late Jan or Feb. -30F - -40F MN February :-) Sometimes he does a summer trip as well.

    Looking at the interior you would swear it was a cabin and not a tent.

    Wooo. He found some better tires. The ones that come with the truck only going one direction,, and they wear out FAST on pavement. I think that they do bite better in mud.



    I think that I was buying them army surplus for $10 each. The tubes were more of a problem,, available but got pinched, and some were old when I got them. Still,, for what they charge to fix flats in Mexico (and Nicaragua),, who cares?


    Tough? The thing is a beast. I pushed it up a 45 degree sand dune,, I was afraid to go to the top lest the dune collapsed under me.

    The GI issue seat will turn your butt into hamburger quickly. I had a valve pushrod break, a radiator fail, and . . .. tire problems. It came with a diesel manifold heater for starting at -50 F,, but no cab heater.

    Promised Pictures

    Note the double tires on the front in the beach picture.

    Pic at the border of me telling the customs guy " just a few personal items,, nothing to declare. Cosas turisticas "
    Never worked, but a good point to start negotiations. After all, he could see the pile of plywood.

    Most important point in getting through customs was:
    Money you "pay" has to be equally divisible by the number of customs guys.
    Time is on your side here (as it is in negotiations with Transito in Nicaragua). If the boss comes by,, the whole thing might go south for them.

    We have something "close"

    Princess Auto

    For example both carry the simple tire removal / install stand - US is $49.95 I think while it is $150 up here. Thing is you folks have 95% of our land mass but 10X our population so you get some real economies of scale.

    But you have many more moose (meese?) than us. And soon you will control the NW Passage - if the coronavirus hasn't upset global warming - which will put the Panama Canal out of business and dash Wang's/Nicaragua's dream/con once & for all and will mean that Canadians no longer have to pay taxes.

    So many benefits of global warming. Canada will become the world's bread basket, and newest tourist destination.

    Miami will become the "Venice of the South" They should start digging the canals now.

    The Northwest Passage was probably envisioned by the Chinese,, and factored into their plans to NOT fund the Ortega Grand Canal and Boondoggle. Say what you will about the the Chinese and their KungFlu,, they haven't survived this long by being stupid.

    PM me for a reservation on the first NW Passage cruise ship.
    For only 10 percent,, I can reserve a spot for you until 2050.

    The other good thing about Global Warming: It will melt a lot of snow flakes.

    Do PC police exist in Canada or is the entire country so spanky-proper that they'd be superfluous? Enquiring minds want to know.

    Bill: Yes - you should have a reservation for me - B L Y L
    Car rental Lady: Why yes here it is - How long will you need the car?
    Bill: About 3 days.
    Car rental Lady: Oh you are from Canada, here for work or pleasure?
    Bill: <Puzzled look> Um about 3 days - How did you know I was from Canada ?
    Car rental Lady: Oh it is how you said "about" can tell every time

    We have PC Nazis - I like the sound of that..
