You be careful

Don....you all be careful. I was working at my Grove a couple weeks ago. when this happened....in a relatively quiet Mexican town a couple miles from our home there.
Many still plan to visit Mexico after Nuevo Progreso shooting | nuevo, progreso, mexico - Island Breeze - spislandbreeze.com

Tijuana and Culican areas can be sporting. Your trip sounds great keep in touch with us.

Melody Ranch, thanks for the information. We did talk about should we or shouldn't we. I guess that's the question we asked each day at different levels. Caution is always a good plan. We will keep everyone posted on our progress and experiences. I think the best we can do is communicate and stay aware. If there is anyone else traveling in Mexico at this time maybe it would be good if they would ad comments here as well.
Again, Thanks Don

toilet repair needed first!

Just a minor glitch ....we're in Redding,CA waiting for South Redding RV Service (hope it's a reputable service business) center to open in the a.m to have our toilet leak fixed. Now that I think about it, it's probably due to a really hard freeze we had about two weeks ago. I blew out all the lines except the toilet line when winterizing a couple of months ago. We'll see what they find. Should be an easy fix.
We hope to be on the road late Monday or Tuesday morning. Don & Claudia are still in Yreka and will catch up with us.

The next decision is whether to brave the central CA valley fog or go the coast route. We'll be checking the weather alerts closely. Our trusty travel companions have much more experience here than we do...so will let them decide what's best.

Cheers!

Bummer about the busted pot. Maybe you can use the down time opportunity to stock up on limes and salt??

Jim & Cheryl, should I picture you in the Airstream or the Argosy. Good luck on the repair, that is an important fixture not to have fixed.

Hi Claudia & Don - guess that we can't stop by your place in Yreka on our way south! We've been in the Lower Mainland area of BC the past while, visiting our older son, d-in-law, 3 1/2 yr old granddaughter, new as of this Oct grandson, and younger son!
Tomorrow, we're headed south along I5, our first destination being Anaheim & the NAMM (North American Music) show. So, we may catch up to the caravan along the way - love to go to Baja sometime!

Safe journey & may the wind be at your back!

Gerry & Carolyn

Gerry & Carolyn, sound like you had a great visit. We're not sure at what time we will be leaving yet. We are waiting for a UPS delivery. We will probably spend a night in the Redding area before heading down the road. We travel at 55 to 60 mph. and stop often. So maybe you might catch us. That would be great. Claudia and I are in a 63 Bambi with a license "STARDIS". The Jordans are in a 28 footer. So if you see us on the road honk, wave. And we can all stop at the next good spot. Keep in touch.
Don

Yes, we had a great visit! We're pulling the 34' so will be pretty obvious if you see us on the road.

Right now, we are waiting for a rain storm to pass - as we have to pass through the Seattle area, will probably stop for supplies at the Costco in Smokey Point, then wait out the rush hour traffic. Our first stop will be at the WA Land Yacht Harbor this evening, so our first day will be about 150 miles.

Take care & safe travels.
