Saving Money to Escape

Saving Money to Escape
I am not sure if my readers know it, however I am very aware of a change in myself. I am tired of the crap of people I meet on the planet, it does not matter which country I am in, it is all the same.

I am tired of watching people piss in the street, cockroaches in the room because the cleaning people do not clean. I am sad that I must carry toilet paper 24 hours per day in my pocket, I am tired of sheets that do not stay on the bed, I just do not understand why the batteries in the TV remote are dead.

Good enough seems to prevail on the planet, I live with continuous mediocre people.

They all seem to define themselves by what they are capable of buying, not by what they are capable of doing. They feel their merit it in buying a house, like this is special.

I am not sure, I do not think there is any solution. The world is getting safer, however the people of the planet are becoming cows, boring me to death with their attitude that good enough is good enough.

I have decided to save up my money, try to be more judicious in my spending habits and at the same time plan my travels more carefully.
THE PLAN
1. I have tripled my work on websites and now work about 3-5 hours per day on my internet pages, and not the normal 1-2 hours. I plan on doubling my income in the next six months. I earn about 100 dollars per day and want to go to 200 dollars.

2. I will live 10-30 days in all locations to cut the cost of living in half, whereby I can save more money, I will not pay more than about 400 dollars per month for housing, really an easy budget.

3. Search for Paradise.

I have become the same thing I am complaining about, I have learned to accept that good enough is good enough. I have become a cow, I really hate what I see in others as I do see the exact same in myself. However, today I change, I will get up and walk the beach for an hour to get my exercise, lift some weight, I guess it will be the normal water bottles I use for barbells and not eat.

I am guessing, I never see scales, but I am probably 30-40 pound too heavy to be happy with myself.

4. Lose Weight and Exercise.
I will get down to 175 pound and exercise daily.

I am not sure what happened, but 10 years ago when I started traveling there were groups of independent travelers who discussed where good places to go were, I almost never see any of theses people anymore. It is like they all went home and turned on the TV and left the road.

There is this asinine idea of stopping travel, this really has nothing to do with travel, it has to do with people. I must stop talking to the cows and find some super achievers who have a life, somebody who does not want to be a cow.

I guess the saving money to escape it about having enough money to escape this crap when I find good places to go. I tend to think Africa is a lot better place to travel to than here, however the beaches of Mexico are special, it only takes one groups of good people in a location to make the place special for a month of my life. So one month at a time, I will search for my special place, and hope to save or earn enough money to escape or run away from the cows when I find I am part of the herd.

Mexico an Under Developed Culture

Mexico an Under Developed Culture
I am sad, I left this country about 8-9 years ago, and there has been close to zero progress in social or cultural development.

I guess no point in talking about it, like having a friend that became a drunk and a bum, what can you say…

They still have machine guns, they still are burning trash, they still think they are something.

The machines guns are so people do not kidnap the owners of properties.

I feel like I am in Ghana or Togo, West Africa with better taxis, however Ghana and Togo are safer.

USA Airlines Loses Bags

USA Airlines Loses Bags
I have made it to Acapulco, my bags so far have not arrived, a total cluster F1. Ten years of travel and only the USA has every misplaced bags, and they have done it four times now. Flights originating in the USA seem to be irresponsible.

NOTE: My bags arrived at airport and I picked up finally.


I check into Continenta Airlines, and got a Continental Bag Claim Ticket, then was put on a Delta Airlines flight, then ended my flight on an AeroMexico connector.

The AeroMexico says it is not their fault, they will not deliver the bags because,,,, I do not know. I came on their plane, who else could be at fault except for the airlines that I flew here with.

I really do not want to think about it, I have only problems with transfers of bags in the USA, and in the last 10 years of Travel I have had bag problems three times on leaving the USA.

One time to Turkey and they lost the bag totally with KLM Airlines.

One time American Airlines misplaced the bag on the way to Cusco, Peru, then took four days to arrive.

Now for Continental or Delta, total mystery to me, with assistance of AeroMexico.

I fly a lot, about once per month, this is just annoyingly stupid, I do not think the USA Airlines see it as a top priority, they just think, so what, if a problem we will deliver later.

I am hoping that I receive the bag, it is just a cluster F1, SNAFU.

What do you think, F1 is the key to hit to get help, a good way to euphemistically use this word and not type in and get penalized by the Internet Gods.

Welcome to Mexico.

2008 March 11 Enter Mexico

2008 March 11 Enter Mexico
I left Fort Wayne, Indiana on March 11 in the morning and entered Mexico City, Mexico at about 3:00 PM. I transited in Mexico City and went on to Acapulco to a small large spit of land north of the city called Pie de la Cuesta, or maybe Playa Luces.

This is a travel marker to remember the way.

They cancelled the first flight because of fog in Clevelandm, Ohio and then put my on another route. And so far Continental Airlines, Delta, Aeromexico has lost my two bags and Aeromexico refuses to bring the bags to my Hotel. SNAFU

NOTE: I got my bags, as I went to Airport and picked up.

The USA does not give an exit stamp, therefore I must keep this type of diary entry for taxes. I am able to earn up to 80,000 US and not pay taxes providing I am not in the USA more than 30 days per year.
