By: | Tags: , , | Comments: 12

I really want to keep up with the blog and keep sending you guys a little taste of Puerto Rico everytime we post. There aren't many projects going on right now besides the constant mowing and weed whacking of our property during rainy season so I'll make a 'day in the life of...' type post. I experience two

By: | Tags: | Comments: 11

One of my buddies called me this morning, he needs to borrow one of our trucks because his Marbete is expired and he got pulled over by the Rincon Police yesterday. He bought his truck last December and his Marbete was good for one year. Normally, when your Marbete is up, you get a letter in the mail

That's right, the Bronco is alive and well...again. For the past few months we have been battling the Bronco, and the Bronco has been winning. It has repeatedly not started and has not been reliable enough to drive anywhere...unless it was a weekend and we had all day in case it broke down. Along with it's bad habit

I woke up early this morning in anticipation of the North East swell that started rolling in last night. I checked Puntas side and it was mostly closed out and about head high.

It’s Time for a New(ish) Car(s)

By: | Tags: | Comments: 10

I think Stefan and I are both in agreement on this one. We need a new car (or two). The Bronco that we bought is a hoopty. The radiator blew up, the windows no longer roll up (and we busted one out trying to force it up), the rear window only rolls up if you press on the

This is not going to be as easy as I had hoped. I thought there was a slim chance that I would be able to exchange my California drivers license for a Puerto Rico license and be on my way. Not so much. It really isn't an easy thing to do, there are many hoops to jump through,
