Comments, Questions and Answers


Driving North - Donations - I am driving a pickup and trailer north on Monday, September 21st. I am planning to take donations to Mulege since they seem to be in the most need at this point. If you have anything you would like to donate, please email or call and I can tell you where to drop your donations. A list of things they need can be found at http://www.lasecomujeres.org/jimena_supplies.html - Tom Carroll, carrollemail [-at-] aol.com, 612-119-8047, Todos Santos


Tecate Crossing - If there was a response re crossing into Baja at Tecate I would appreciate your sharing with me. - Kent Mclemore, kent.mclemore [-at-] gmail.com


Road Conditions, Trailers - Can some people reporting on the road conditions give their opinion on the travelability of the HWY 1 for large and small trailers at the time they pass. Also I still have room in my large trailer to take things to the USA end of this month. I would like to take relief items if they can be dropped to me in LaVentana. And will have room for items on the return to the baja in October if you have important items. I have posted a link to a forum where discussions can be held on this. - Dean Devolpi, dean [-at-] keyboardorganizer.us, la-ventana.forumotion.com/hurricanes-f34/going-north-will-take-relief-items-2009-t112.htm#160, 612-114-0202, La Paz

Pet Corner (Lost and Found pet articles will run for one week)


Found Puppy Near Oficina De Correos . Post Office - We were approached by a starving and weak little female puppy at the Correos Office on September 9th in the early afternoon. We searched for any sign of her litter mates or mother and asked the people in the area if they knew anything about her. They all said they did not know where she came from and encouraged us to take her. We could not leave her in her condition. She was weak, bloated, had fleas and she was very bony. We suspect that someone's dog had pups and they just do not want them however, there is a chance that someone lost her so, if you have lost a 4 or 5 week old puppy in that area and can describe her, we will happily return her. Otherwise, she has found a good and happy home and she will stay with us and become part of our animal family.
