West Texas has a lot of long steep highway hills.
Good thing we keep 2.5 gallons of emergency gas in the trunk at all times!
Piña's sleeping spot
When you are driving Westward the sunsets last FOREVER!
Windmill Farms on the horizon
They're SO sleepy after all that nap time in the car while I drove...
Claire always gets what she asks for.
if you've never had in-n-out you should probably do that.
Bath time for Piña.
All that road tripping has made her a filthy little creature.
The plan is to head Southward from Tucson, Arizona tomorrow morning. Cross the border at Nogales. We should be pulling into the Guaymas boat yard in under 7 hours! We've left our home, Splendid Isolation, behind for almost 8 solid months. Before May, 2013 the longest we had ever left our sail boat of a home was 10 days (for my sister's wedding), and that was probably the only time! We are super excited to get home, with our new trailer. We will wait patiently for our good friends Marc & Colleen. Keep on traveling with us to see how we pass our time in good old Mexico!
