False alarm labor pains yesterday, and we are still waiting for grandson to make an appearance. We have a feeling this will be an April Fools baby!

We went for a drive and checked out a couple of different RV parks as possibilities for a seasonal or even monthly home base for this summer. Because we will be heading to
in early September, we’re thinking a monthly price will be better. Plus, if we don’t like the spot we choose, we won’t be locked in any longer than a month. Ottawa

Sure enough, we slept in a little this morning, and we didn’t leave Pete and Pam’s lake house until just after 9:00am. They have a dump station at the house, so we made use of that before we left. Then we stopped at their store and gas bar and filled up the fuel and the propane. With full fuel, full propane, and empty holding tanks, Sherman is a happy camper!

Another beautiful day. We’ve been really lucky with the weather…high of around 86F (30C) today. Almost Mexico weather! I got the rest of the work with the air springs finished today. Very happy with the way they work, so I’m looking forward to putting in a full tank of gas and still have the vehicle ride level.

Had a totally peaceful night here at the lakehouse. Didn’t get up until after 7:30am, but I’m sure some of that was due to the various time changes we’ve been through. And, we had to catch up from our lack of sleep beside the train tracks the other night!

We had some laundry to do, so Ruth was in the camp laundramat before 7:30 this morning. Still, we didn’t rush out of Poche’s Fish ‘n camp and didn’t say goodbye to our friends Paula and Jerry until almost 11:00am, which is a pretty late start for us.

It was still drizzling when we woke up this morning, but the forecast said it was supposed to clear so we stayed put for a couple of hours. Plus, we were waiting to hear back from our friends Paula and Jerry who are trying to arrange us an inexpensive stay where they are at an RV park near todays route.

Our record of no precipitation has ended! We heard raindrops on Sherman’s roof last night for the first time since November 13th! That was a pretty darn good run of beautiful weather we had. But it’s over now. It was drizzling when we got up this morning, and it rained on and off all day.

Just a short note to say that our drive from Monterrey and our border crossing at Laredo were both totally uneventful. We are now in Texas. Not sure where we're going to end up tonight, but we will try and post a complete update later on today, provided we have internet access!

Tomorrow (Sunday) we will enter Texas at Laredo. We plan on being in South Carolina a week from tomorrow, and that's about 1400 miles (2,258 kms), or 200 miles (322 kms) per day. Should be no problem, since we will stick to the Interstate for the most part, even though it's not our most favorite way to travel.

We didn’t leave our parking lot at the hotel until almost 10:00am, figuring that most rush hour traffic would have died down. It was still pretty busy leaving Saltillo, but we made it through with out issue…until we got to the outskirts.

We were up just before 7:00am, and after saying goodbye to Alejandra and Tonio, we were on the road before 7:30am. We stopped for gas on the outskirts of town ($0.75 per litre $2.83 per gallon) and then as we were slowing at a speed bump, we were flagged down by somebody.

Today was a relax day, especially for me and Whiskey. Our friend Alejandra had some errands in the morning, and of course her son Tonio was in school for the day. But she left us the key to her house, so we had showers and spent time on the internet.

Around 9:20am we left Whiskey to look after Sherman, and walked to el Centro (downtown) which was only about a 15 minute walk. We’re on a busy street, and we wanted to explore some of the churches and buildings so it didn’t make sense to have Whiskey with us.
