Pemex proves it delivers correct amount of fuel!
We were surprised when buying gasoline at a Pemex station, to see the sign displayed below. This sign translates to:

Dear Customer:
We invite you to verify that the quantity of
dispensed fuel is correct using the patron jar.

Pemex [Petroleos Mexicanos] is the national petroleum company for all of Mexico. Historically, there have been some dealers who delivered less fuel than the pump showed.

Afraid to cross the US border.
Yes. I have fear to cross the border of my own country. Do you know why? Because border agents now believe that they have the authority to seize my computers. Download all of my data. Search my RV without any cause.

Border agents do not follow our own US Constitution at the border. Do not have to follow the 4th Amendment at the border. Do not follow our Bill of Rights:

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

The 4th amendment no longer exists at the border. It has been set aside, and reduced to nothing.

I may lose some readers because of my post above. However, I am speaking out anyway. Because I believe that our liberty is more important than this so called, "War on Terror."

Benjamin Franklin wrote:
"They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."

3PM - Tangancícuaro.
We have made a Camp near the Town of Tangancícuaro. It is a bit rainy, and we do not care. The cloudy sky is sooooooo gorgeous!
