Cordele, Georgia

Not sure what the temperature got down to last night, but Ruth got up in the middle of the night to put the electric heat on, and even when we got up around 7:00am, it was still only 57F (14C) in the motorhome.

Open Pond Recreation Area, Alabama

Had a good sleep at the Grand Biloxi Casino, but we were both awake early so we left right away and did some driving. I used to scout out a cheap gas station along our route about 20 miles away.

Biloxi, Mississippi

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.

Breaux Bridge, Louisiana

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.

Vinton, Louisiana

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.

Tomball, Texas

Had a great sleep at the Walmart in Beeville, Texas. A couple of readers (thank you Evelyn and John and Ellen!) mentioned Spring Creek Park in Tomball, Texas as a possible destination, so that’s where we headed.

Beeville, Texas

I went to sleep okay last night, but the loud music woke me up. Chris said later that it was after 3:30am when it stopped. So we were kind of tired this morning, but we said goodbye to Chris and Juan and still got on the road shortly after 7:30am.

Made it into the U.S.A.

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!

Potrero Chico (day 2)

A bit of a loud night last night. There was music coming from somewhere until the wee hours, not real loud, but just loud enough to be annoying. No worries, we still got up fairly early, and went for a morning hike.

Our route to South Carolina

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.

Potrero Chico, north of Monterrey

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.

Thursday, March 3, 2011


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.

Zacatecas (day 2)

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.

Tuesday, March 1, 2011


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.

February living expenses and blog income

Well February turned out to be an interesting month in the finance department. It was actually our cheapest month so far this trip.
