Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, Part Two; Nov 2019

In Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula Part One we reported our circumnavigation of the peninsula. This report includes a third member to our party, our friend Aline, who flew in from Paris to join us on our travels. We picked her up at the Cancun airport and, as usual, immediately fled that money pit for laid-back Puerto Morelos just half an hour’s drive away. We checked into the Arrecifes hotel where we had reserved a comfortable two-bedroom suite at $65 per room for the three of us. Exhausted from traveling, we had a delicious seafood dinner and turned in for the night. Continue reading

Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, Part One, Nov 2019

After storing our truck and trailer at Desert Trails RV Park in Tucson Arizona we flew to Cancun on the northeastern tip of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. We immediately picked up our rental car ($25/day including damage insurance) and escaped from that tourist trap to the tranquil small city of Valladolid, a two-hour drive to the west.

Albuquerque, Santa Fe and on to Oregon March, May 2019

We decided to spend March and most of May in Albuquerque New Mexico to investigate building a home base on a small acreage rural lot on the opposite side of the Sandia Mountains from Albuquerque; the East Mountains as it is called there. Just a twenty-minute drive around the Sandias would bring us to all the shopping we would need, and forty-five minutes would get us to Santa Fe. The community we bought in seems remote and quiet, adjacent to the Cibola National Forest in an oasis of juniper and pinyon pine forest overlooking the San Pedro and Sandia Mountains.

Tucson Arizona to Albuquerque New Mexico – March 2019

On March 8th we left our comfortable camp of the past three months in Desert Trails RV Park outside of Tucson and headed towards Albuquerque New Mexico. We are investigating whether to build a home base on property we bought last year in the mountains outside of Albuquerque. But, along the way we had a friend to pick up in Flagstaff and some sights to see before we settled into a RV Park near Albuquerque. We had a mini-adventure coming up. Continue reading

Chihuahua Mexico and Tucson Arizona: January – February 2019

In the beginning of January we left our truck and trailer at Desert Trails RV Park in Tucson and flew to El Paso Texas. Our nephew Jacobo and his wife Renee met us at the airport with their three year-old daughter, Anita, one of our favorite people on the planet. Then we drove into Juarez Mexico bound for Chihuahua Mexico. We had business to take care of in Chihuahua; visiting friends and family, renewing my Mexican residency visa, and renewing Sonia’s Mexican social security account. Continue reading
