I got lazy and didn't do a blog post and we are crossing the border into Mexico today. We left American Girl Mine Rd and spent one night at the Quechan Casino near the border. We met some of the Escapees Mexican Connection people, we are going on the trip,with at the casino and went into Los Algodones, Mexico to get our visas. This is a place where many from America, especially full and part time rvers, get their dental and eye treatments. They are much cheaper than even using insurance and many are very good doctors. The next day we went to the Imperial Valley Expo in Imperial, CA for our preralley. We met up with some of the people we met in last years trip and also made some new friends. We had 4 days here having meetings on what to expect in Mexico, activities available and even a little spanish lesson on some common terms. WE had a Mexican "potluck" where everyone had been assigned something to bring for a big taco salad. We brought refried beans. There were salad makings, olives, guacamole, chorizo, tortilla chips,etc. Also margaritas and beer. We watched the Super Bowl on an outdoor tv one of the rv'ers had on Sunday. More snacks and beer and wine flowed. We won't have cell service or internet in Mexico. There will be wifi at various places, of course, but I am not sure if I'll be able to blog while there. We are staying at Pete's Camp in San Felipe. I'll hopefully have some great pictures and stories to tell sometime in the next week or so.
