Mar 17, 2006 - Tip of TX

We're in Mission TX now and it has been hot. We will be down here near the very tip of TX for a couple of weeks. There are tons of parks down here just full of trailers and RVs. They all head north about now and it dries up down here until fall when they come back mostly from Michigan and Iowa, but many other places, too. We were in the grocery store today where you see mostly old white people or Mexican people. There was a Mexican lady with an adorable little toddler girl in her grocery cart. When the little girl saw Randy and his almost...

Jan 10-11 - Mission, Bentsen-Rio Grande State Park We decided not to go the Laredo and check out the Rio Grande Valley instead.

Jan 6, 2005 - marathon ride home

Marathon ride home I boarded the bus at 9:00 in the morning in Puebla and spent the day rolling over the countryside from Puebla to Poza Rica. According to the weather it is 47 degrees in Texas. Brrrr. It was kinda crisp in Pubela when I left. The bus ride will last until 5 pm tomorrow. Approx 30 hours before I reach Houston. As I rode along I kept thinking about getting all my gear through customs OK. I was praying for a green light. Night fell somewhere along the mountain road and I slept until the bus stopped at a station. Everyone said,...
