All secret at this time.
But soon very soon. Tying up loose ends and headin' south.
But so far the math is in my favor...

Considering your "You're so cheap" thread, have you considered taking in a room mate to get the rent down to a more affordable level?



If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

Thanks everybody.

I have almost no limit to how humble I will go as long as it's safe. No bars on the windows. So might be ok.
I got a barky dog or 2 where I live now in Mukilteo, Wa. It's a Washington thing.

Does anyone know how much water, electric, trash, gas, cable ,etc is.
This is San Quintin area.
My guess is $300/month for rent and everything. Maybe $400.

Oh I think much less than $400 unless you are including food costs in that.

Get yourself an inapam card - senior citizen card and water goes to half price.

For electric, pay attention to the bill as part of it is subsidized by the gvt. until you exceed their limit. We found out the hard way when our bill tripled our second year here!

Many rentals come without a fridge and stove. Mexican way of renting.

Gas: you buy the tanks and try to have a spare on hand for when you run out in the middle of dinner!

Best of luck with everything!

Sounds like you are trying to lease w/o seeing property. I record you go inspect it before giving any money.

Looks like it has been abandoned for a while, so probably problems of neglect.

And you got no idea about the neighbors, traffic, noise, etc.

All good points chivato#6.
My selling point here is that the street is actually paved.
Recent paint
Curtains, not bar on the windows.
Very blue sky, included in rent.

I am retiring
Which means I am moving.
So yes, unless I get there and something is obviously wrong. I will move into this little house.
I'm shooting for May 1 but my need to delay a month or so.

This is the typical cookie cutter tract home baja mexico style that one sees as far south as San Quintin and around larger towns and cities.
It's a planned neighboorhood about 10-15 years old.
Streets, sewer, electric etc.
On the grid.
I can't wait.
I obviously need a gardner.
I hope the yard is bigger than it looks.
I love the big tree. Is it an olive or pepper tree?

I will start a palm nursery in the yard for my fishcamp.
I need 10 trees on each lot. 2 lots.
That's in the CC & Rs. But no one has 10 trees yet.
I will put them all on 1 side of the lot so the will be a full on palm jungle between my place and the neighboring lot. With a mister so it's always wet.
And plants to attract butterflies.
And huming birds.
And Birdfeeders so I can see all the different birds.

Any other questions, comments?

You are retired, you dont need a gardener, do it yourself (it's a small yard)

Does not appear to be olive nor pepper. Not sure what it is. But it is the only shade tree on the property, so treat it well. Appears to be surviving on precipitation alone, so dont kill it by giving it too much supplemental water.

When I see a nice tree like that one, I have visions of relaxing in its shade, burning some beef, and sucking on three or nine Pacificos.

Now, now, nine Pacificos in a night is NOT within your retirement budget!!!
