Kathleen and Paul are owners and live on site. So you'll get quick response to your needs and access to your washer/dryer in the basement.

Your apartment is only 100 feet from Grand Avenue and only 100 more to beautiful Lake Merritt where the winter birds are arriving. And runners abound.

Your Saturday Farmer's Market is closeby under/around I-580. Trader Joe's is just a few more feet. Whole Foods Market is walkable from your apartment. Sprouts Farmers Market is on Broadway and Safeway is closeby on Grand Ave.

Then there's the classic Grand Lake Theater. You'll find many good restaurants on Grand and Lakeshore. Walking Grand Ave and Lakeshore at night always reminds me of the Left Bank of Paris.

This area truly is a gem and Kathleen and I are glad and happy to live here. You will be too.

2/20/04 - On The Road!

Our journey into Mexico began in the City of Presidio, which is located at the confluence of the Rio Grande and the Rio Concho Rivers. The Presidio Valley was originally inhabited by indigenous cultures, most notably Jumano Apaches. It is the oldest continually inhabited settlement in the Southwest. The present community has evolved from the early garrison (which in Spanish is called a "presidio") built by the Spaniards in 1759 in what is now Ojinaga, Mexico and Presidio, Texas. Ojinaga (with 30,000 inhabitants) is across the Rio Grande and is the sister city of Presidio. The City is regarded as the doorway into Old Mexico.

At exactly 7:30 a.m. our Wagon Master, Larry, began instructing the various motor homes to line up, and at 7:35, our little motor home “Jerry” pulled out of Loma Poloma Campground.

The stop at Customs went very quickly and smoothly. I think only the Wagon Master was stopped and his papers checked. Most all of the rest of us were waved on.

We passed the Mexican border and Immigration without even noticing, it went so smoothly! Thirty-one miles after this, we encountered a Customs Inspection (again, we were all waved through,) and at the Military Checkpoint several miles farther on down the road, we were waved on again. What an easy entrance into Mexico!

The roads were quite good all the way today. We were on a toll road for awhile, ($12.00) but we couldn’t complain about any of the roads today. We made the 176 miles in approximately 5 hours (we set our watches & clocks back one hour when we entered Mexico.) We will be on “mountain” time until some place in Baja near the end of our trip.

We stopped along the way a couple of times to “regroup” – and here’s shots of one such “regrouping!”

So here we all are – safe and sound in Chihuahua, Mexico. The campground is quite nice – much larger than I imagined. There are 19 vans in our group, and this campground could probably have at least 19 more rigs!

And after rigs are "set-up" most everyone gathers to swap news and information.

Bill E and Bill W must be admiring that beautiful blue LD!!!!!

Here's the group at the 4.30pm briefing for next day's activities.

Tomorrow we’ll visit the City of Chihuahua and will have more to report.

4/25 - INTEGRITY MEANS AVOIDING any communication that is deceptive, full of guile, or beneath the dignity of people. "A lie is any communication with intent to deceive." Whether we communicate with words or behavior, if we have integrity, our intent cannot be to deceive. - from 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey
