Too sad to post!

No worries, we have arrived intact in Mountain Home, Idaho, a total of 407 miles.   Not to say we didn't have the odd issue today but we coped and we do have an appointment with Cummins in Las Vegas on Monday at 7AM re an engine issue!!!  Our top travel speed from here on is 55MPH!

When I checked my emails a few hours ago I was shocked to receive an email from a dear friend, an American who lives permanently in Mazatlan.  She had some pain this past Monday and went to a Doctor who has diagnosed her with ovarian cancer.  Her tests were completed yesterday and she entered hospital today and is scheduled for surgery tomorrow.   Too much for me to take in.  This individual has done more that anyone I know to promote tourism in Mexico and Mazatlan in particular.  All I can say tonight is that thank goodness the Mexican medical system is top notch and within less than 7 days from initial pain to diagnosis she is undergoing surgery.

My thoughts are with my friend tonight folks.  More tomorrow.

Our destination tomorrow is Ely, Nevada, about 340 miles.

  1. Sorry to here about your friend hope all goes well with her surgery.
    55 mph is not too bad, get better fuel economy.

    Knowing Nancy and her good health, she will come out dancing! Apparently, it had not spread and they will get it all which is MORE than good news. The doctors told her she was in excellent health and it will make the procedure easier. She knows how we all feel about her and our thoughts are there in basket loads!
