Update: WE ARE BACK ONLINE! The Forum has been RESTORED! See announcement here. If there are any problems or issues, please report them in the announcement thread. Note: Unfortunately I was not able to import the posts made after the crash (on Sept 18) into the restored forum. However, I exported all the posts submitted after the crash into a Word file, so you can download it, find your posts and re-post them. Download the posts here. Thanks for your patience and welcome back everyone!

I wish you luck. I can't seem to get anyone to respond to posts, so I doubt a meetup is likely.

Which is ironic since I go to Ensenada with some frequency.
Whoa, easy does it there, bro! You just missed the last meetup, but it ain't the last. Propose a date for another one, anywhere in Baja, preferably Ensenada, I'm game.

Or Guadalajara, or Culiacan...

As we used to say in the South, "don't get all shot in the ass about it"! DJFourMoney is Black but he still condescended to meet with us WhiteGuys....

Well I specifically said "respond to posts" not simply the post in THIS thread. Unless its racial or causing some sort of conflict, it will get ignored. This is what I have seen over and over again like hotcakes since joining, and I read everything. I responded to your post about intermarriage cause I thought that was a good subject and something that is inevitable if one travels abroad. Died with my post. So I would imagine you can also understand my closing statement about "I'm not sure what this board is for" since I thought it was for people who love to travel abroad swapping stories and advice.

It is what is is, forums have different dynamics that newbs like myself have to learn. For instance:

...was more a commentary on a different dynamic that worked in my favor instantly versus through attrition like here.

I'll keep posting and keep following the rules, if they spark discussion great if not, oh well. I'm in the states and should be back in Ensenada (if I don't go to MTY first, haven't decided) sometime in August. When that happens I'll say something here. Saludos.

As long as Greyhound is running its deal on getting to the boarder for $30 or less, I will be down to go as long as it doesn't interfere with upcoming DJ gigs.
