The Long, Last Chapter of the Big Adventure

We met with the importer on Monday morning, June the 6th.  The first step of the process was to drive the motorhome to U.S. Customs to have the vehicle “exported” from the USA.  That was quick and easy.  So now we had a motorhome with no country.  We went back and unloaded all of our … Continue reading »

Tulsa to Laredo

We left Tulsa Friday morning after a three day stay at the radiator shop.  Seems longer than that.  We needed to be in Laredo, TX on Monday morning to meet with the import broker to finalize the importation process into Mexico. That meant that we had a slow easy trip down to the border.  We … Continue reading »

Day Two

We left Matehuala around 8 in the morning.  We traveled across some of the worst, and some of the best roads in Mexico.  At least three Military Check Points, but we were waved through them without any inspections.  We kept smelling some strange smell.  It turned out to be sulphur gas coming from our batteries. … Continue reading »

Day One

The first day of the trip, estimated by Google to be 4 hours and 20 minutes turned out to be more like 10 and a half hours. We knew it would be longer than the estimate, but did not think that it would be that much longer! We spent the first night in Matehuala, in … Continue reading »

We decided to repaint and re-chrome to bring it back to almost new appearance.  Here are some photos of the process and the finished product. … Continue reading »

Those have always been nice and cool  Thanksgiving weather. … Continue reading »

Hurricane Patricia, A Near Miss at Coconutz

Hurricane Patricia came close by Coconutz, and many beachfront restaurants were destroyed, sadly. Since we had to build up the RV Park a few feet for the sewer lines to drain properly, we came out without much damage.  There was much beach erosion, and trash blown ashore.  Lots of plastic! All of our palm trees … Continue reading »
