Off to Panama again

I haven't quite fallen from the face of the earth, but I have been very busy. Sunday morning, it's off to Panama for nearly two weeks, and I have been preparing for the trip.

My partner Phil tells me that the road we are improving between Rovira Arriba and our Roca Milagro site is coming along nicely. There are, if I remember correctly, over 250 truckloads of gravel involved, considerable grading and rolling, and when it is all done it will be a very nice road indeed. It is our gift to the community and an assurance that our property owners won't face a bumpy drive. Grading equipment is on our site as well, and crews are grading the front gate area and taking out sections of the massive stone walls where necessary to allow the planned interior roads to pass through.

Barbecue supplies and drinks have been purchased for the big party we're having on the site on the 23rd, and I'm looking forward to meeting friends, neighbours, suppliers, and of course our own shareholders there.

I will be taking lots of photographs and hope, when I return, to have a bit more time for blogging. In the meantime, I am going to be enjoying some sunshine, warm weather, and even a drink or two at our Cocktails in Boquete bar.


  1. Wish I could be there.
    Are you publicly traded? It occurs to me your little real estate development is going to become quite popular to Americans who don't wish to live under HITLERy's police schtaat, and your condos won't be empty for long.

  2. This is a private development with just 10 shareholders at the moment. Many of us are libertarians in spirit if not in name, and we hope to create a haven for freedom lovers.

    No condos there, the lots are all 1/3 acre and up to an acre or more, so there will be estate type homes mostly. For me, this is a fun project (with considerable unexpected frustration thrown in for good measure) but it is a great experience and I am curious to see how it will all unfold.

  3. If it ever seems to get too frustrating, just imagine the red tape you'd have to hack through to do the same thing in USA or at home!
