I can't believe another week has gone by. It was a hot dry week. Highs each day were in the Upper 80's, with lows in the mid-70's. It was partly cloudy all week but when the clouds moved out each day it seemed really warm.
A couple more RVr's found their way to the adjacent campground. Pat & Mike Jones from Salida, CO -MikeJinCO (RVnet name) in a truck camper pulling a trailer with two large ATV's. They are both paddlers and Mike makes wooden paddles (http://cricketdesigns.com/). They have been coming to Mexico for the past few winters and had just come this year through Chiapas. I had some bad experienecs there a few years ago and we wouldn't go back. They ran into road blocks where the locals demanded tolls to let you by based on how much they thought you could afford. They stopped everyone including buses with stop strips and wouldn't release them until you paid. They said they wouldn't go back either.
Another couple from Mass, Rob & Shirley arrived in a Sprinter van. They are eventually heading over to the West coast. They all came over each night to our 4 PM cocktail hours and we all told travel stories. Pat and Mike are heading to Caye Caulker in Belize to meet up with some friends in early February. They hope to leave their RV in Chetumal and take a ferry over.
By Friday they decided to move over to our campground and came out with the gang to our weekly dinner at Pizza Leos in Chemuyil. When we got back from dinner a cold front came though with a little rain but it dropped the nighttime temperature back into the high 60's, very nice for sleeping. It is supposed to be a little cooler this week and of course they forcast a little rain each day like last week but it seldom comes.
