Safe in Puerto Vallarta - 1900 miles (and adventures) later

NUEVO VALLARTA, Jalisco, Mexico - We arrived safely at Dustin & Cami's casa Saturday at about 6 p.m. after an overnight stay in Mazatlan and a visit with Captain Dan Olsen and his admiral, Lorraine.

We made it sans major problems, though we did drop a torsion bar driving through Hermosillo right in the middle of a busy street, backed into a fence and lost a tail light (found it later) and hit some topes (speed bumps) going a wee bit too fast.

Like the airlines say: Be careful opening overhead bins, some things may shift in flight.

I'll post more about the entire seven-day trip later - right now my internet connection is about to disappear, I believe.

We will be here until Christmas morning when the Grey Goose Express will make its last passage (for now) to La Manzanilla where Dustin says the driveway is wide enough - by a foot or so - to back the trailer in.

But that's days from now.
