Comments, Questions and Answers

Another Vehicle Stolen In Los Barriles - Kevin's 1996 diesel Dodge pickup truck was stolen Friday morning from in front of our house in Los Barriles. The truck no longer has a camper shell on it but the attached picture shows its size, color and style and gives a clear picture of the Alaska license plate, DKE 629.

The truck was in front of the house when we walked the dog in the morning but was gone when we walked out to go into town at 10:30. So sometime between 7:00 and 10:00 AM, someone broke into the locked truck, hotwired it and drove away, all in clear broad daylight.

We got a report around 1:00 PM that the truck was sighted in San Antonio at the curve around 7:30/7:45 on its way to La Paz and north. Kevin and Betsy, 044 (624) 154-6661, Los Barriles

Antiques From San Miguel De Allende And Guanajuato In Town - We were walking around town today and came across an old acquaintance from San Miguel who has set up his tienda for only a short while here in Todos. On the street that crosses Juarez at the corner of the Hotel California, across from Guluarte, you will find Rafael and his beautiful antique furniture, doors and artifacts until Monday at about 6 p.m. He is open Saturday all day, Sunday all day and Monday and then moves on to another town; Cabo or La Paz. Great prices and wonderful people. Support them if you can. - Daniel And Ellen Siqueiros, siqueirosproductions [-at-], 403-145-0141, Todos Santos

Classic RV, Fully Stocked And Ready To Be Your Home - "Rosita" is an RV and more: a guest house, a spare bedroom, a bodega. Having lived in Todos Santos since 2003, she's a true Baja girl who needs a new owner because I now live on the mainland. She's a '69 Ford Lazydaze and from the outside, she fools thieves because they'd never guess how cool she is on the inside.

She sleeps four and has A/C, a SOLAR panel, a 4-burner propane stove and OVEN, a double sink, a bathroom w/ porta potty and shower, TONS of storage, TWO tanks for gasoline, and a strong, healthy engine. New water pump needs only to be hooked up. Her Dometic fridge stopped working last time someone stayed in her but could be fixed or replaced. Her tires are great. She comes fully stocked with things like toaster, coffee maker, plates, glasses, pots, pans, canopy and much more. They truly do not make 'em like her anymore.

With so many extras, she's worth over $3600 but I need to sell her now and will accept $2800 or take closest offer. - Feeny Lipscomb, feenylipscomb [-at-], 322-149-3472 San Pancho
