Road Trip!

A big one! We were 'talking' to Chris and Juan about finding a fun location to meet them for a week or so and they suggested SMA (San Miguel de Allende). They had bookmarked a two bedroom house right in town that was available in late March for $800 US per week, not bad when split between us. We started looking for airlines and since there is no large airport in SMA, it would have been awkward (and expensive) to get there.

We were mulling this around when Norma had the idea that we could drive the Honda to Monterrey, Mexico where Chris and Juan live and then drive the rest of the way with them. I sent this idea on to Chris and Juan and they are all for it! It will take us three days to drive the 1000 miles from Mesa to Laredo, TX and from there we can buy Mexican insurance for the car and continue to Monterrey or park the car in Laredo and take a luxury bus to Monterrey. Chris even offered to drive to Laredo to pick us up. No matter how we get there, it will be a blast!

  1. Yikes...for 14,000 pesos per week, I'm sure it will be very nice.

    1. It is a great part of Mexico. More for Norma than me but then she puts up with what I want to do most of the time.

  3. Too bad you're looking at late March. We'll be in Guanajuato for a week or so starting next Monday, then will be in SMA around February 14 or 15. We plan to stay at San Ramon for 3 weeks mas o menos. Sounds like we won't be there at the same time - would have been fun to have a little reunion there!

  11. Yes you will love it here in San Miguel, we have been here just over two months and still love it. We walk everywhere for exercise but the cabs are cheap. Eating out is inexpensive compared to Vancouver. Enjoy yourselves, wish we were still here then, it would have been fun to meet you all.

  14. I wish all of you good luck. I have sworn never to return to Mexico. Too many bad experiences and bad luck. Driving the "Murder Highway" through the "Murder Capital" of Mexico, etc.
