It would probably mean that we need a visa to enter/exit. Most get visas anyways but ultimately it would depend on the language of the bill or act on whether or not those visas would be viable.

I am not stateside and haven't seen national news in weeks so bare with me, is he serious or just pizzing liberal media off.

We’ve got awhile... i believe if i remember correctly it wasn’t until August they got released and then the dates they did release weren’t what ended up being enforced...

I’m headed down in the morning. We got an inch or so of rain in this last storm. We are starting to feed protein for the first year. Gonna put out some cameras and see what happens. I haven’t been in a couple months so I’m pumped.

I hope trump doesn’t close it while I’m down there. It would be fun for a week or so tho.!

Just to let anyone know who’s coming down this weekend.
Big trucks are backed up for miles at NL & Colombia... they have rerouted traffic on HWY 2. It wasn’t a problem coming in, but will be interesting coming out.

Safe travels and VIVA!

Big trucks still backed up @ Colombia, but the left lane is open & clear for vehicle crossing. We were in line for 10 minutes @ 8am this morning.

Much needed .5” of rain this morning.

Got .4 as we’ll need quite a bit more! Going down in 3-4 weeks can’t take it any more.

use a generator for electricity we have some large panels on the property. Curious what kind of converters and batteries would be the best for long term use for a small house basically about 10 light bulbs and 4 outlets for phones.

Got a few texts from one of our guys going to the ranch this morning. Ranch is west of Acuna. ( Cristales had a bunch of wind.
Oregano is looking good.
Couple of inches at least. )
Asked him about the secound gate in after leaving pavement at Oregano. It can be impassable at times.
(Perty good amount of water, but passable. Good rain to the Tienda. Wind blowing about 30 mph.) Last text.( Almost to the Cedro, plenty of rain . Gona loose service now) Sound like it should be a good spring!!

LOL, No flood threats yet. I'm at 1 1/4" so far this year. The good news is we are coming off a very wet fall so things are still in pretty good shape. Still my belief that the hunting mafia south of me hoards the rain.
