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.

Just in case you wondered what the heck we’ve been doing since we fell off the road, here’s an update. As you know, we headed to Puerto Peñasco, Sonora, to get settled into our new little trailer/casita.  The day we … Continue reading

1/31/2105 – The numbers and the end of the road (for now)

  After a grimy, nasty, rainy, muddy drive from Magdalena de Kino today, we arrived at our new little homebase Wish I had Photoshop so I could draw a tongue hanging out of Flipper’s grill as she breathes a big … Continue reading

1/27/2015 – Driving in Mexico

The first time I had to drive a car in Mexico, in La Paz, I was petrified.  I just knew that every cop was corrupt and they were all waiting to get me.  I also was sure that I wouldn’t be … Continue reading
