2008 Mexico - Baja Peninsula
Page 6 Trip Map
  It took 2 days to reach the California border. We knew that our workamper friends, Chuck and Janet Caulkins often spend their winters in Arizona so we called to see if they would be nearby when we came through. We met in Casa Grande, Arizona and they filled us in on their summer trip to Alaska.
  Theresa`s brother Roger and his wife Nelda and son Blake had their home in Ocean Springs, Mississippi heavily damaged by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. We visited them in their new home in Denton, Texas where we camped nearby for a couple days. Nelda is a Louisiana girl so her authentic file (fee-lay) gumbo meal was a treat. Blake visited our 5th wheel and now wants to go camping in Maine more than ever.
  Ouch! We had no problems with the rig in Mexico but then we had to deal with broken exhaust manifold bolts and a broken hitch in Alexandria, Louisiana. A month later, on the way north from Florida, the fuel pump quit on I-81 near Winchester, Virginia. Both breakdowns were on the weekend and required motel stays. Diablo! Muchos pesos!
  Annie Cosgrove is another dear workamper friend who lives in Biloxi, Mississippi. We met her in Foley, Alabama where she was preparing for her granddaughter`s wedding shower.
  Some of the workampers from previous years in Bar Harbor, Maine met for a luncheon in Ocala, Florida. We always enjoy getting together with such good friends. Special thanks to Karen and Howard for organizing the luncheon and to Pat and Smitty for helping us with the trailer. Now for the last leg of our Baja trip, home to St-Georges, Quebec.
