A Quick Update

In 2010, we moved back to the small town in Colorado that I never stopped missing while we lived in Mexico. Now I sometimes miss Mexico, but I wouldn't travel as freely as we did when we were there, camping out in remote areas and so forth.

Mexico today is in a period of change, and in many ways it is more dangerous now. That said, I have plenty of American friends who still live there very happily, just taking a few more precautions than they did in the past.

Just to say!


Visit Expedia…

Expedia is my favorite place to book airfare, and they handle hotels, car rentals, cruises, etc. I like the organization of the site for figuring out what flights I want. Click on the suitcase to take a look.

I was very pleased to win an award for this blog! Even better for you: click through for lists of all sorts of award-winning travel blogs.

Early in 2003, Kelly and took our small Toyota Dolphin motorhome — aptly nicknamed “Cando” — into Mexico from Texas. We roamed around for weeks, having many adventures… sometimes TOO many for my taste!

The trip had a couple of purposes (besides pure fun): one was to get out of Colorado for part of the long winter, and the other was to consider whether we might like to live in Mexico.

There are relatively few campgrounds in the areas we explored, though luckily we had an earlier version of this guidebook: Traveler’s Guide to Mexican Camping: Explore Mexico, Guatemala, and Belize with Your RV or Tent. As they say, don’t leave home without it. It really enabled us to make the trip as we did. Still, it wasn’t always easy to find a place to stay.

I have written and published books before, with Living with Llamas being my biggest success… that link takes you to where you can download it as a free PDF, on my website about llamas. (We raised them in Oregon for 10 years.) So I wrote a book about this RV trip. Called Mexico with Heart: Travel Tales, Photos, and a How-To Guide, it’s now at Amazon, where that link takes you.

But just a minute… I also put the full text of the book up on this website. In some ways it’s better here, as the photos are in full color and larger. To read it on the website, click on Our Mexican RV Trip on the menubar. Scroll down a little, and you can open page after page… I’ve got them all set to open in new tabs (or windows).

We had so many good times… here, I’ve just been decked out in the traditional dance apparel of a Chichameca new friend:


And here is one of the many wonderful people we met:
