Great, thanks. I've been following the coverage of the storm in the Caribbean on the NOAA site. It appears that it has been downgraded and there's no certainty of where it will make landfall. Good luck!

I was in Belize not so long after that one...in August of last year???
Apparently, there was some major flooding due to humongus rainfall. Was the wind force very much?
Where is your property?

Reilly,thanks for your "welcome" response. Where the heck did you get my member number? Clicking on the name of a member opens the member profile. Some members provide no information and others much more.

How did you go about getting your lease? I will likely need a temporary home while the construction of my ultimate home is going up.
I was able to make friends in BZ via personal references, Facebook and this forum. Among these, a couple was house sitting and introduced me to the landlord in California. Another friend introduced me to Dion Rodriquez, "the most knowledgeable real estate person in Belmopan". I failed to keep his phone number when I spoke with him in July.

By the way, I am an architect and hope to continue being one in Belize (this is a not-too-subtle hint).

Hyde Shipping is out of Houston? They are out of the Ft. Lauderdale, FL area. www.hydeshipping.com Consider Jospeh Hamilton (joseph@hamilton.com.bz) for your broker. An alternative shipper is Victor Reimer.vr@gmail.com. He is affiliated with Discount Auto Sales in Spanish Lookout. They send a 40ft container, bi-weekly from Arlington, TX. The route is overland through Mexico.

It's a 'lil bit of comfort to know I have a fellow member of the Sea of Confusion Society. I don't envy you! I'm content to wait and consider building when I've lived in BZ for a year.

I hate acronyms! PM can mean so many things. In this context, it means Private Message.

For example, to send a PM to me, you would click on "Reilly" at the top of this message. That provides other choices, including to send a private message.

Click on the My stuff and then messages should be in there, if you have a message a little envelope usually shows in the top line.
