Yes We Are Still Alive

04 January 2014 | San Carlos, Mexico
Eric & Marilyn
Wow, it's been almost two years since we last posted something on our blog. We are still cruising in Mexico but got a little distracted. After spending the whole summer up in the Sea of Cortez during the first year we discovered that it was just too hot to stick around during the summer months.

Minnie Winnie

We decided to split the time in Mexico with the States, winter in Mexico and summer in the US so we bought a 30ft "Minnie Winnie" RV to do some land cruising. Of course we had to get a dinghy or as the RV crowd call them a Toad to tow behind the RV so we picked up a Chevrolet HHR, which is a small SUV. We keep the RV stored in Tucson, Arizona as it is close to San Carlos, Mexico where we store our boat and drive the Toad between Tucson and San Carlos. We now spend 6 months of winter in Mexico and 6 months of summer in the US. The first year we took the RV all the way to Florida and back, which included Alabama, Missouri, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Kentucky. It was a pretty cool trip.

Fleetwood Discovery Motor Home

When we got back to Tucson we needed a part for the RV so we stopped into the Winnebago dealer in Tucson. While we were there Marilyn said, "Let's just take a walk around the used RV lot" so we did. You guessed it, Marilyn said, "I like that one". We are now the proud owners of a 37ft class A diesel motor coach. It is a Fleetwood Discovery motor coach It is like having a house on wheels. We now have a condo in the water and a condo on land.

Grand Canyon

This last summer we took our motor coach through Colorado, the Black Hills of South Dakota, of course Sturgis during the big annual Harley motor cycle get together, Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, the Badlands, then back through the Grand Canyon. It was a great trip.

Bottom Stripped Clean

New Bottom Paint

We are now back in Mexico for the winter season. We had the boat in dry storage at Marina San Carlos. While it was out of the water we had the bottom paint taken all the way down to the gel coat, a new epoxy barrier coat applied, then two coats of primer, and two coats of bottom paint. It was launched the 4th of January and after finishing getting everything ready we will push off and sail to La Paz, stopping first at Isla Partida.
