Good to go…..

It seems to me that many are leaving earlier this season.  Last week we had two unscheduled departures, one due to a family situation and another due to an earlier than expected arrival of a grand baby!!

Adios amigos!

Three RV’s from Tres Amigos #2 left yesterday and today another leaves as well as us but via Durango!  April 1st will see another 5 leave and by mid April perhaps there will be just another 3 left.  Hasta Noviembre everyone!

We are good to go.  Everything is packed, the final beach walk has been taken and the jacks are up and the slides are in!!  If you remember last October 30th we were having mucho problemas in leaving Arizona.  Yesterday afternoon we pulled in the slides and lifted the jacks.  The front left jack would not retract on its own as we had suspected, but with a good deal of prodding, Colin got it up into position.  We just hope the jack stays up there.  By 3:30PM we had moved the RV out of our site, backed in the car and then the RV and hooked it all together.  To err on the side of caution we will not be putting down the jacks or slides out till we get into the USA.

We plan to start the engine by 5:40AM this morning and leave soon thereafter. It will be a very very long day to San Carlos!

My garden gave me a final gift, I've been waiting months for my Desert Rose to bloom. It had a few problems over the past few months from bugs, to transplanting to someone falling on it!!

Thanks for the photo Terri, a great memory of a wonderful winter!
