  1. Yes. There is a group in Boquete & a group in Volcan. Still to come in the not too distant future - the "Chiriqui Challenge", an informal competition between the two emerging super-powers.
  2. Yes, yes I swallow. Hmm..that just didn't sound right....NOT! "The site that potential expats trust" C'mon Chuckie.....

  12. 3 guys?? Do these 3 guys have names??
  13. Please remember the disclaimer that purchasing a ready-made TFDB (tin foil deflector beanie) can, in some cases, be deleterious to your health (leakage problems, etc.). Usually best to construct them yourself.
