Re: Gas suppliers.

I am wondering if all gas suppliers use the same gas. I have noticed a difference between Gasco and Abastible. The Gasco seems to have less pressure and not as hot. I bought a new regulator for the bottle thinking that may be the problem, but no difference. I have not tried Lipigas but someone told...

I believe that pepper spray is an "elementos controlados", and may require registration.

Re: another dog problem

I have problems in one particular neighborhood where the dogs pack up. I have been lucky so far in being able to intimidate them, but if some are circling behind you, it may not end well. Many years ago I used to jog along one road near my home, and there was a very large doberman pincer that would ...

Re: Help Me Find Things Please (The Lack of Amazon)

Whenever I've tried to buy something on Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, or ebay, the same thing always happens. I go through the pay process to the end and then it rejects any Chile address and says it won't ship to that address. If I change to a different Chile address, double check the correct postcode...

Re: One pound propane

If you are refering to these, the answer is no. By far the most common fuel you will find, is Gas Butano Propano Doite - 227 Grs . Readily available in Chile and Argentina. Doite makes some decent stoves, I would recommend purchasing one when you arrive.

Oneworld Alliance, Latam and AA baggage scam

Oneworld Alliance has cooked up a new baggage scam that is almost beyond belief. Starting in June 2016 the airlines are no longer obligated to route your baggage through to your final destination on ONEWORLD AIRLINES connecting flights if a passenger has two ticket reservations. That means you have ...

Re: The Fiestas Patrias 2016 thread

I am going to do the traditional burned meet with lot's of salt, but think I might also do some gringo BBQ sauce on something. Every time I do an asado for my Chilean friends I get warned that the Chileans won't like the American style BBQ (), yet at the end of the day it is the American BBQ that ge...

Re: Getting a Driver's License

'You then have your eyes tested (if you wear glasses or contacts, take them with you), and your ears tested, then you go and have a chat with the doctor (for some reason, not sure what as he didn't do anything other than look at the results of the aforementioned tests and sign them off).
