way to go TW!


Great stuff TW - I bet you've had that with us on all of our trips!

Now maybe we will solicit updates for these lists, if needed.

why would i need a birth cert to prove citizenship when it isn't required to enter the country? do they want to see a birth cert to give a death cert? that's stupid!

Yes Woody but if someone dies and you have to deal with a Mexican Funeral Home then they want a birth certificate along with a marriage certificate and 2 witnesses with ID's. I signed a death certificate in Medio Camino last week and the funeral home came to the home to pick up the deceased and that is what the department of health in Mexico requires.

I have encouraged time and time again for all legal residents of Mexico to get Seguro Popular. The Mexican health system however will n not turn away a victim of trauma or catastrophic illness. I saw a person last week get stabilized with no ID and no insurance at Rosarito General Hospital but they had run into some snags so all of you legal residents of Mexico get Seguro Popular. Please search the threads here for more information I have written about this several times.

Wow was looking for something that could prevent another Gary Patton tragedy from happening. Can you elaborate on how to sign up for this?

Thank you all for your great responses. This might get the gears rolling in people's heads about making a plan for them. I want to add that the Funeral Homes in Mexico will translate your required American documents for a fee. I dealt with San Ramon Funeraria last week and it was a very professional experience. Please people get a local Mexican physician that will sign your death certificate otherwise the body can end up at the morgue for weeks. Thanks so much for the lists of medical contacts as well.

We never thought about it until this year when our friend died and his wife had to have the marriage license to claim the body.

Remember the guy from Bakersfield who hit his head while sliding down a rope swing in Cabo. I don't recall what they actually call it. Last year I think. His hospital bill for the hospital in Cabo was $50,000. His family and friends have been holding fund raisers to pay it off. He is doing much better last I heard.

I doubt anybody can provide evidence of spot organizing and leading a rescue in remote Mexico. Somebody please do a test, go to Catavina and press spot 911 and wait for Lassie to show up. Woof, woof!

If you look at the map and do an enlargement you will see they have documented "rescues" all over Baja

Dots on a map? Anybody can sprinkle dots on a map. How about a real story about spot leading the rescue in remote Baja? I noticed the dots are not clickable, if they were real you would think spot would allow you to click on a dot to read the story, eh?
