Several days ago our Blogging friend Contessa asked us to find out the monthly rate here at the Yax Ha Trailer Park. Norma went over to ask and it is $7500 pesos a month, electric included. This is about $580 CAN (or USA right now). It was time to pay for another few days and Norma figured it would be cheaper for us to just pay for a month and leave early. The manager would not go for it. It seems the only way to get the monthly rate is to pay in advance! He did give us a reduced rate of $250 pesos per day (instead of $300 pesos) for the rest of our time here so we are saving a little anyway. We are now paid up until March 11th.
We have to be home a few days before the end of April to do our taxes so if we leave here on the 11th, we will have about six weeks to get home. A nice, relaxing pace with time to stop every once in a while and maybe a chance to see Chris and Juan on our way through Mexico.
Today or tomorrow, we have to dump. There is no dump at our site so we have to move about 100 feet to the dump station. Not a big deal but because everything has to be taken off tables and the counter and the slide brought in, we delay it as long as possible. Our noses are telling us it cannot be put off any longer. The black tank is nowhere near full and we let the gray water drain onto the grass under the rig so it stays empty. This is pretty normal practice although many people get their noses out of joint when they hear we do this. It is just sink water and the grass obviously likes it. I am environmentally conscious but I have been known to pee behind a tree. Bears do.
