5/20/2014 – Transition: Cruiser to RVer

Well, Siempre Sabado is all tucked away deep within the forest of boats that is Marina Seca, San Carlos.  Only took a couple hours yesterday to finish everything up so she could be moved from the work yard to the storage yard.

That covering is a black mesh tarp that I got at Harbor Freight on my way back down from Tucson.  It’s supposed to cut 70-80% of the UV but still lets heat escape and allows breezes to help keep the boat cool, at least when breezes are available.  Don’t know if it will work out well or not but I guess I’m going to find out.

After paying my yard bill as well as my storage bill, which I paid a year in advance to save a month’s rent ($134USD), I headed back to the RV park where I just lounged around all afternoon, drinking micheladas and enjoying the fact that I can now concentrate on RVing instead of boating and RVing.

Today I’ll take the bus into Guaymas for some items Lulu has requested as well as a few groceries.  Then, tomorrow I’ll start north.  So, if you’re following along for stories about sailing, might want to check back in about a year.  We’ll see the rest of you on the road.

About sryoder

Steve & Lulu... retired. Had enough of the cold wet dreary fall/winter/spring in the Pacific Northwest. Bought a boat, fixed it up, sold our home and sailed to Mexico in November, 2010. Been here ever since except for occasional forays to the States (summer only, thank you) to visit the kids, parents and siblings. If you're looking for a sailing blog, this is the wrong place. This is a traveling, hunkering in, eating blog. Sailing is just how we get from place to place when we can't walk.

  1. Will do. Even though I’m gonna miss Siempre Sabado. Looking good high and dry. Nice tarp too.
    Happy “truckin” on that Dolphin!

    Safe travels and have fun on your road travels. I’ll keep an eye out for your dolphin if we are in the same area. Now, for a while, you can forget about hitting a whale or shipping container, at least in the water. Happy trails and say high to Lulu.

    Now you can hit your head on the overhang on the camper. Seems like that is your way of life. Same as when you were a toddler. Always falling and hitting your poor head. Looking forward to your traveling home. Love, Mom
