Crossing the Border

We had a short stay with Rich, Tracey, Cade, Dane & Finn Priem in Houston. Tracey cooked a great dinner Saturday and had her parents over to eat. Caught up on all that’s going on in Houston.

Sunday turned out miserable. It was cold and rainy. But at least we were not in a snow storm. So we watched Houston beat the Browns on TV. Well I guess we are back in last place again. We went out to our favorite Tex-Mex restaurant, Lupe Tortillas. We had a good dinner as usual.

It was still bad weather on Monday,  Tracey prepared a delicious Salmon dinner for our last night.Then we just hung out and watched a movie and the start of the Pittsburgh/Tenn. game. We hit the sack early since we like to get on the road at sunrise.

We had a smooth drive down to Harlingen, TX where Peggy likes to do some shopping. We got here at 12:45PM. I filled up with the cheap US gas. This year in Mexico’s gasoline is $1.00 more per gallon. We also got our Propane tank filled.

We drove over to the border nearby at Los Indios. We like to get our Mexico Visa, called an FMM, have dinner at the Long Horns Bar-B-Que and then sleep at the Wal-Mart back in Harlingen. This way we can get an early morning start without stopping for immigration. However it took over an hour, I put my last name & first name in opposite places on the form. They had a fit. They made me white it out and do it right. I hope I do it right the next time. I really got scolded.

Trip Plans for our first day in Mexico
