We got a late start today after Norma had a fingernail job in the mall this morning. I used the time to service the RV batteries. Distilled water is very difficult to get in Mexico. Some auto parts stores carry it in 500 ml bottles for quite a bit of money. It is Bardahl brand and imported from England. I guess the locals just use tap water… Anyway Wal-Mart carries distilled water in gallon bottles for seventy-five cents in the USA. Note to self: take a bottle to Mexico next time! The batteries took a half litre and I washed the tops off before sealing them up under the stairs again.
While I was in the store I bought an LED taillight kit for the car dolly. One side has been out for several months but I didn’t worry about it as we never drive at night in Mexico and the motorhome signal lights are clearly visible from behind. I will probably wait until we get home to install them. They were $49 USA in Wal-Mart and are over $100 in Canada. I also bought a couple of Stanley slot screwdrivers. Would the person who has the few dozen screwdrivers I have lost in the last 65 years please return them!
It was cool last night (7 degrees Celsius) that made it easy to sleep under the heaviest quilt. We have three quilts – light, medium and heavy. We are acclimatized to Mexico weather or otherwise the medium would have been fine.
We took off towards Kansas and stopped at a Cracker Barrel restaurant for lunch. I had the catfish (man, I love that stuff), and Norma had meatloaf. We both cleaned our plates which is normal for me but really something for Norma!
We stayed on I-35 north into Kansas with a stop at the Welcome Centre. We decided to head off the beaten path and explore Dodge City, KS. We will head that way tomorrow but tonight we are in a Sam’s Club parking lot in Wichita tonight watching TV and dining on McDonalds. Life is Good!
