"Dear Stan and Estrella,

"Allow me to clarify my earlier statement. There is a loophole that MAY allow you to get your vehicle out of the country legally. The law reads that the "temporary importation" permit is valid as long as the owner's immigration permit…"
"I have worked with several people in similar situations, and am the first to admit that I do not know everything, but this has been my experience. There IS a temporary extension that allows you to drive back to the border. It is only good for a few…"
"Bob, I have been checking on Health Care options in Mexico and noted that you have a publication "RETIRE TO MEXICO - 20 Questions". Can you send that to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks very much. Stan Lathrop"
"You need to go to immigrations in Puebla, Puebla to get an extension. I knew a lady that crossed over and didnt get a permit, she was living here in Tlaxcala. When she went for her renewal of her fm3 they discovered the error, but they were nice…"
"Not 100% sure but I was told that if you go to the LOCAL ADUANA (probably in a BIG CITY in Puebla) and take all your information - perhaps a picture of the car with the license plate, etc. and ask for an extension that they might do it. Someone told…"
I AM WRITING FROM TEZIUTLAN, PUEBLA (250 KILOMETERS EAST OF PUEBLA CAPITAL). I HAD AN ACCIDENT WITH MY AMERICAN CAR, AND CONSEQUENTLY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO DRIVE TO THE BORDER TO RENEW THE 6 MONTH PERMIT BEFORE IT EXPIRES. DOES ANTONE KNOW HOW I CAN GET A 1 - 2 MONTH EXTENSION OF THIS PERMIT SO I CAN DRIVE IT TO THE BORDER WHEN THE CAR HAS BEEN REPAIRED? I APPRECIATE ANY INPUT SOMEONE MIGHT BE ABLE TO GIVE ME.

Tell us about yourself, type of business, last employment
Soon moving to Mexico. I'm American, my wife, Estrella is from Villa Hermosa, Tabasco. She has lived 15+ years in U.S. Now, it's time to go home! Born in 1943, I'm 66 yrs old. First married to a woman from Perú, now to Estrellita. Fluent Spanish, Portuguese. I've been fascinated by the pre-colombian civilizations since 4 yrs old, when my mother bought the ViewMaster system with photos of the Incas, the Maya & the Aztecs. My wife, Estrella, was born & raised in the state of Tabasco, where the temperature runs from 30 - 40 degrees celsius, unless it is hot, when it rises to 40+. We met & married in Minneapolis, (the past four weeks, the temp has rarely been above 0 C night or day). Now that I have retired, we will relocate to Teziutlán, Puebla, a city she first visited 25 years ago, & has dreamed of ever since, because of moderate temperatures that range from 25 to 34 celsius compared to the horrendous heat of Tabasco.

I wonder if you have friends in Minneapolis who are thinking about retiring in Mexico. I have started a group in St. Paul for people who are either retired or about to retire and are interested in learning about the benefits of living in Mexico. Our group will get together to plan tours to visit Mexico and to talk about relevant issues like health care, cost of living, housing options, lifestyles, relocation, etc. The group will meet every other month starting in April. Ideally, the first tour destination will be to Manzanillo, a Pacific Ocean port city and resort in the Mexican state of Colima.
I sending you the link to our group so you can share it with friends.

I'm staying at my daughters in Puebla at least until about mid march, meanwhile Steve, "the genuine tourist" is renting my house in Apizaco. Let me know when you head this way.
