Colleen is rather antsy to get everything done so she was up writing Christmas cards until 4am! (and playing on the computer).
Yes, I remember.

A friend of mine did this trip last year, Alison, Alison's Wanderland

WELL, as is often the case something comes up at the last minute.

Leaving this Monday and we discover our pool system is losing water rather rapidly...so the only option is drain it and leave it!

Never I thought I would be doing this two days before leaving.

Rented a Trash Pump from Home Depot and had it emptied in two hours. Hope it doesn't 'pop' out of the ground, it's a pretty solid area.

Thanks. You are right. In fact both of the bottoms on each bike are half a turn wrong!

Give me SOMETHING else to do, as I'm not BUSY at all

If you are taking Hwy10 south into Mexico, you might find it interesting to stop in Casas Grandes and visit the Paquime ruins.
