Damn Bob, that knot looks like what that Trudeau Jr. has in store for you guys.
Elegant, time consuming, expensive, yet ultimately useless solutions to simple problems!
Shh! Don't tell the gringos we are talking in Canuck code.

That's the first time I've been told that I look like an attorney. I think I'm insulted.

I think he meant the guero from San Angelo.
Speaking of said guero...yes +1 Jimmy on the Argie steakhouse. A landmark here, El Gaucho.
They've got some competition from La Estancia Argentina (a few of the old El Gaucho waiters moved there and are still there 12 years later), and Cachorito which serves up a decent cut or two. All have good wines. However, my wine snob status consists of four simple tests:
1. Is it purple?
2. If not, is it white or pink?
3. Does it pour from a bottle?
4. Are you happy after you drink it?

On a sad note....it appears that Antonio will be leaving the employ of the Hotel Rivoli bar near the end of the month.
He is returning to complete "the American Dream", he has his legal status as does his wife, and some place is going to get a good bartender. Guess it's time to train another. Life goes on.

30 day TVIP issues

Duplicate Post from CA ride planning

So I spent almost the entire day running around Nuevo and Puerto Vallarta today. 4 different offices. 2 INM 1 Consulate and 1 La Aduana (SAT or bank type place that does TVIP). There is one in PV near Costco for those of you interested.

I am not sure if I need to write the story of how each place could do nothing and please go here then there or maybe here again. Also my attitude at this point is not great so I will spare all of you my anti-Mexico TVIP process rant. I was honest at some(like mom always says) and then made up a story about a family emergency in AK at others. Even with no TVIP INM was not willing to change my TC to an FM3 Visa unless I went to a border; PERIOD! Lady was not so pleasant. So back to square one.

In the end a large part the mistake was mine. I did not look at all the documentation as throughly as I should and thats that. The lady at the border did not have a clue and I knew that. That alone should have been cause for greater due diligence.

Here are my options as I see them at this point in the order of 1 being the choice I am leaning toward and 3 no likely at all. A lot of the issue comes from the fact I fly from PV to AK on Nov 9 and return on Nov 30. Due to my work there is little to no flexibility to this.

1. Leave Mexico at my leisure some time in early Dec as I had planned. Do not correctly process the bike and no longer be able to bring a vehicle into Mexico again(Today I am very ok with this, piss off Mexico and you process).
Consequences:-$400 dollars small chance of moto being seized if I get stopped and Mex Ins being void. Ugh maybe option two is really what i am leaning toward.

2. Wait until my TVIP expires and get a 5 day transfer permit. It is 5 business days so you can really get 7 out of it. Usually takes two days to process. Not sure of the cost and there is a lot to do to make this happen. I have all the paper work in Spanish and taking it back to Ak with me to get help from my bi-lingual amiga. This makes things all good if I get stopped by someone that wants to see my TVIP or if I get into an accident. Not sure how insurance would view this.

3. Go to my boss and ask to leave work 4-5 days early and make an iron ass run to Guat. Mind you this right after my very understanding boss just approved a 3.5 month leave of absence and has to stretch coverage during that time. Also would need to change flight(minor). I would also get my money back. Right now this is really more of an idea than an option.

I could write for my pages on the day and its events but I am not going to. It just get me all wound up again. Some highlights are that my cell phone slipped out of my hand, hit the ground and split in two and a warning light came on on my bike. It is all almost comical tonight and I am sure will be tomorrow the kicker is that my situation really wont change when I wake up. Oh well such is life and things could be a much worse. I will get this resolved on way or another and continue my trip with this being just a story and part of the entire adventure.

Zinfandel

McFoil: I just had an Arizona Zinfandel, Cellar Dwellers '09 Tarantula Hawk, surprisingly good, and in Williams AZ in a little Italian style place that used to be a Texaco station. Caprese and arugala in Williams, AZ... go figure... tomorrow the owners of the cheap motel where I am staying will be serving me Indian chai with warm milk... the times they are a changin'. I had some very good Malbec in Mendoza... white burgundies not in my budget.
