Oct 2, 2018 - Fun in Mexico

We had a wonderful day, we went on a day trip to Mexico. We drove about 65 miles to Weslaco, Texas and then took highway 1015 directly into Neuro Progress Mexico. This is a very popular Mexican town with South Texans and snowbirds visiting the area in the winter. This was our first trip into this part of Mexico, we loved it. We parked our car in a parking lot right next to the bridge for $2 a day. We walked across the bridge, taking pictures of the Rio Grande River in the middle of the bridge. You can walk right into Mexico without showing...

Jan 16, 2017 - Starting to Unwind But Keeping Busy!

Life in a RV has a way of relaxing you. Today the list of chores was short and sweet. Get the washer and dryer up and running after being winterized was number one on the list ... what could go wrong there? Hang on, haven't we heard that line before? In the process of pulling out the machine so we could reconnect the waterlines... somehow the tap way in the back suddenly got turned on... quick thinking Michelle ran outside and turned off the water for the whole bus in time to then soak up, with our assortment of beach towels, the spill. No...

Texas Again

Jan 19, 2012 - Nuevo Progreso Mexico

Since we were out of some of my medications, we decided to head over to Progreso today. We also decided to get our teeth cleaned. We parked in our usual parking lot right outside Progreso for $5 for the day. Then we walked across the bridge over the Rio Grande River. Then we headed straight to the dentist's office. We have been going to Dr. Jorge Muestre to get our teeth cleaned. He is pretty popular and the exam rooms and clinic are sparkling clean with up-to-date dental equipment. When we arrived we were told that there was a two hour...

Our 2012 Travels

Mar 10, 2011 - Nuevo Progreso - Mexique

Nous avons passes cet bel apres-midi au Mexique. Tres facile d'acces a part du 25 cents requis pour entrer et sortir du pays, ils n'ont jamais verifier nos identites du cote mexicain. Tout un monde, une fois que tu traverses la frontiere. Un recul dans le temps. De plus, NP semble etre le choix des dentistes et pharmacies pas chers avec solicitation dans la rue. Nous avons fait le tour des boutiques, petit lunch leger - a la mexicaine - et retour sur le cote US. Cette ville survit grace aux vagues de touristes qui traversent chaque jour. Un...

Nos Voyages

Jan 24, 2009 - Nuveo Progreso, Mexico

Written from Alamo Palms RV Park, Alamo, TX. I finally got the few pictures we took in Mexico put on a disk to share. We went to Mexico a couple Saturday’s ago with Jim’s sister Mary and her husband, Jim. We had a very good day. Progresso is just across the border. We park our car on the US side and walk across. There are so many shops, vendors on the street and people walking around trying to get you buy something, there’s hardly room for shoppers! There is a lot of “begging” that goes on, from small children to old ladies! We ate lunch...

Nov 18, 2008 - Nuevo Progreso, Mexico

Tuesday November 18…10:15pm We had set the alarm for 6:20am in order to be ready to head across the border at 7:30am. Traffic going through Brownsville was fairly heavy, but by the time we reached the bridge and border it was pretty quiet. We paid the $7.00 US ($8.40 CAN)(for motorhomes) bridge toll and crossed in to Mexico. We were both pulled over at Mexican customs. The inspector checked that our vehicle permits were in order. These are the 10 year motorhome permits that we bought last year when we crossed into the Baja. They must be...

Jan 22, 2008 - Visit to Mexico

Today, we walked over the bridge to Nuevo Progeso. We shopped and had lunch. We couldn't believe how inexpensive everything was. From haircuts to liquor, prescription and otc drugs, perfume, lunch items, leather, ceramics and pottery, woven items to hammered tin, everything was affordable! The only negatives were the children and old women begging with styrofoam cups, and the military convoy with weapons aimed and ready, patrolling main street. I didn't know whether to feel safe or threatened, but Steve refused to take a picture of the...
