And so far, the weather is looking like it's going to be great!
In fact all this week the forecast is for around 30C (86F) and sunny.
Great looking weather forecast!
This past weekend wasn't the greatest. We had a lot of wind and rain on Friday, Saturday was cool, but yesterday turned out not bad. The weekend went pretty smoothly other than one complaint about some late nighters on Saturday night leading into Sunday morning. Of course when I'm told about it the next day, it's too late to actually do anything about it. I did go talk to the offending parties and make a mental note of it though.
Our couchsurfers Bart and Sanna arrived in time for dinner Saturday evening. They're in their early 30's and from Netherlands. They're on a long term tour of Canada with their dog Mara. I haven't got any photos yet, but I'll be sure to get some before they leave and include them in tomorrow's blog post.
We're their first couchsurfing experience, although they have been staying with people in Canada through WWOOF (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms) during which you volunteer some work hours towards a farm operation in exchange for room and board. Interesting hearing the stories of someone who has done it, although I doubt that it's something we would do.
Quite a few of you buying through our Amazon.com links over the weekend, so thanks for that! Here's our deal of the day today...
Our original GPS was a Garmin, and the one we currently own is a Tom-Tom. Based on those two experiences, we would buy a Garmin over a Tom-Tom, and in particular we would buy this Garmin because it also includes maps of Mexico. And, it includes free map updates for life. That, and the fact that this is the best price available (and only available today) at $119.95.
I notice that Best Buy also has this unit on sale, but at $139.95. Today only, you can save an additional $20 at Amazon.
