Re: WARNING: Chile shipping companies and door to door

This thread has been going a long time, I recall 10 yrs ago making most of the mistakes it's possible to make when importing a half 20' container from London.

Figure out the crate size and call the airlines, they have set prices for pet travel, some flights may be excluded, I have never figured out why......

Re: would we be nuts to bring my 2 yorkies on vacation with us?

I'm not so worried about how things will be for my dog in chile, I have a place there. I'm trying to get a rough idea of my bi annual travel costs, bringing a 50 lb dog.

Re: would we be nuts to bring my 2 yorkies on vacation with us?

After 9 months, I'd say yes. I understand the need for shots, records and hoops but what are we looking at in $ typically?

Re: would we be nuts to bring my 2 yorkies on vacation with us?

I've been holding off getting a replacement for my old English Bull terrier for more than a decade now. My travel makes dog ownership problematic. Recently however, I met a young lady at Dallas, after the flight from Santiago. She had a golden retriever in a crate and was petting it during the layov...

Re: prepping, for the super rich

yea, it was basically, 'we can stay home and live in the third world, why would we move to the woods and pretend'? I recall my neighbour cleaning up garbage thrown over his fence by the Mexicans going to and from the local Home Depot (presumably for work). He looked at me and said "the third World ...

Re: prepping, for the super rich

I made the effort to get to a club de tiro in Santiago where they put on IPSC matches (my old passion). The goal at the time was to get the membership card (+\_. $2000 for 2 yrs) then apply for permission to buy a Glock. This thread reminded me why I bothered (armed home invasion robberies in Santia...
