Oh Mr. Tony has time to harass us all now that he is retired, LOL

This year our plan is to drive to Miami, Put a Jeep and a Polaris Razor on a ship. Then I am going to take a Free diving class so I can keep up with my spearfishing buddies. Then we are going to fly down.

The Jeep is going to stay and we can fly from now on. I think nine or ten trips is enough.

Belizeans are quite good at improvising such things. They will back the truck up to a mound or something and build a ramp out of a few logs tied together with rope or straps.
I have seen a whole container removed from a truck by chaining the container to a tree and driving the truck out from under it. Mind you, any breakables were offloaded first.

hey new hopkins friends!! great news, there are a group of neighbors organizing a road improvement project!! as home/lot owners we are each, as we are able, donating $$ to the project to get the road filled and smoothed better than it has been. if you are not down full time, just to let you know, the road in Phase 2 is generally so bad right now, it is not passable in some areas. jstewartpa is collecting the donations either at CPC or online if you want to help out. the cost is $300 BZD per load of fill and we are hoping each owner will donate a load or more if possible. anything will help. there are future plans for the water board to move the water line in phase 2 as well to help with those issues.
here is the original post on the Belize hopkins, etc Facebook group:

Attention: Hopkins, Sittee Point Phases 1,2,4 & 5. As everyone knows that has rode thru here our road is in a disastrous state and severely needs repair. Nows the Time! Thanks to the efforts of Osmin Construction (Leche) he is organizing for our community, for those repairs. The Ministry of Works has approved and donated the material for the repair to good condition of our road. As a community now is the time to pull together and donate to the cause. In a perfect world if every property/lot owner donated even 1 load for their lot it would make a huge difference. Cost per load is $300BZ complete, delivered and spread. Osmin Construction stepped up and is donating the first 16 loads. Ramirez Construction stepped up and has agreed to match Osmins 16 loads. Keep that in mind for your next Construction project. If you don't donate then you can't complain, but shame on you. For more details and to donate contact Osmin Construction- Leche at 671-5850
hope this link works as well:
