Ruth and Colin's Day - Sunday, December 9th

It's 3am when I wake up, I wake Colin and see if he feels like driving yet or not. We check at the truck stop to see if they know if the pass is opened, it's not so this means another detour. Luckily this isn't a very big detour,

Still no word from Ruth...so no idea what's going on there! Doesn't matter, I suppose...either way I have to take my flight to Tijuana tomorrow.

Ruth and Colin's day - Saturday, December 8th

Woke up this morning to sunshine, what a nice change. It was a little on the chilly side, needed to put the furnace on for a short while just to take the chill out of the air.

Another lazy day. Read my book and had a nap this afternoon. Never did make it into town today, but will make an effort to do that tomorrow morning because it's my last full day and I really want to see the shipping yards.

Ruth and Colin's day - Friday, December 7th

Woke up in yet another Wal-Mart parking lot as they are the easiest place to find for the drive down. This one is in Springfield, we had stopped at one, at the exit before, but it was smaller and didn't allow RV overnight parking.

Ruth and Colin's day - Thursday, December 6th

Woke up in the Richland, Washington Wal-Mart parking lot, in what is classified as a desert zone which has on average 300 days of sunshine, of course we got one of the other 65 days, it is spitting rain, and it doesn't really stop raining all day.

I made my blister worse today. It actually felt fine, so I decided to walk into town. There's a new Walmart "Super store" in Manzanillo, so I was curious as to how different a Mexican Walmart is. Apparently Manzanillo has had very little new construction over the last 20 years,

Ruth and Colin's day - Wednesday, December 5

A new day begins and what a day! A little late starting but only about 19km from the border crossing, Colin was happy we drove that first bit last night when the roads were quiet.  Anyways on the road again, "bombing" down the road, when I mention that the speedometer

The beach at Manzanillo is broken into 2 different bays. The section that this resort is on is at the south end of the first bay. So you can walk the beach to the north end of the bay which is about 3 km's each way. So I went and bought some sunscreen from the little shop on the

Rather than repeat what Kevin has already said about our early morning I will continue with my day. By the way it was dark and rainy this morning.

Sure enough, the alarm went off at 5am. It didn't take us long to get ourselves ready to head to the airport. Seems like forever that Sherman has been parked at this casino...yet it's really only been 3 days. We made it to the airport by 6:30am...with lots of time to spare for my 8:40am flight.

Boulevard Casino (day 2)

Sunday December 2nd...9:30pm

If it hadn't been for the snowstorm outside, we probably would have had a really good sleep at the Casino. But we think the guy operating the little bobcat plow was having more fun than anything else when he was plowing the parking lot for what seemed to be all night long. And

Saturday December 1st...9:15pm

The Walmart in Burnaby is open from 7am to 11pm every day. So when it got close to 11pm last night, I went into the store and asked at the customer service if it was normal practice for RV's to park overnight at this particular lot. Because there were signs put up by the shopping mall
