  1. This topic has some good replies. Thank you for starting it. Here are a couple ideas to buy a car. To bring in more than $10,000 you simply declare it and it could be other than cash. Withdraw $500.00 a day from multiple credit or debit cards. Give the dealer a personal check from a US bank and see if he takes it. Attempt to get a loan to expedite bank cooperation. Be aware you may want to buy locally so your car is registered in Dolega.

    Grubs? Nematodes?

    Camote is the spanish term. IDIAP has a new variety that has improved resistance and nutrient level #C.90-17. I am hoping these are available at the local IDIAP. Got this info from Sept 15 issue of La Prensa. There are good and bad nematodes. They are microscopic. My personal experience is... I have grubs and my sweet potatoes are almost all affected but not penetrated so I harvest,remove bad sections, cook, bag, freeze. My organic efforts usually produce visually imperfect products. Hope this helps.

    Map Reading

    Throw some money at it. Hire a cab and follow him to the destination.
  7. We used the Zipsims and they worked as stated. We bought services for 7 days and this is extendable. Set up is easy and we were assigned random numbers. Be aware they are disposable meaning you cannot reactivate later. The shipping and handling was a bit excessive $8 given the size.
  8. I have an idea for a Tuesday talk and would like to contact the coordinator. Would appreciate a name and number. Thank you in advance.

    Purchasing a weed wacker in David

    Bought mine 13 years ago in the US. It is the solid shift model. No problems and no parts other than 5 trimmer line heads. It did pay for itself. Panamanians have a saying " lo barrato sale carro" in other words buy cheap and you pay it the end.
  10. I have been looking for a method to have cell phone use for a one week trip to the US. I found Zipsim and this looks like the best option. Here is how it works. You buy one week or more of service that includes data. They send a sim card to a US address or if you have time have send it to Airboxes, MBE etc. Put the sim card in your unlocked smart phone and you get a number. The system is Tmobile. Anyone have experience with this?
  11. Hotpoint heavy duty dryer $175.00 Works perfect. Bought a gas dryer so this needs to go 66379802

    Soil Testing

    Soil testing can be done through IDIAP, MIDA and University of Chiriqui. It cost $20.00 and the results are comparable with US labs. They give amendment recommendations for your specific crops. University of Chiriqui, Just past the town of Chiriqui on the right will email the results and I think they do the work for IDIAP and MIDA. It will take a about two weeks long as you avoid the Christmas period.
