Join us as we travel North America in our Holiday Rambler Vacationer, since August. 2006
We are "On the Road Again" after 2 months on Stone Island, Mazatlan Mexico (Paradise), heading north slowly.
This morning we pulled out of the campground about 7:20 am, anxious to get on the road again. The dirt road out to the hiway was slow going as usual with still quite a bit of water in the low areas. One hour and 10 minutes until we hit the pavement. A njce sunny day, not too much traffic and good roads.
We are making pretty good time until we pulled into a Pemex station in Culiacan at 11:30am. Put 180 litres (.64 cents a liter Canadian) in our coach and I pulled it ahead to fuel the car as well. As I turned to the left a bit to avoid the store front ahead we heard a loud crunch! Our coach has a large overhang at the rear therefore we have a large tail swing. I saw the SUV to our right but did not see his door open, so it grabbed our coach and tried to rip itself off the hinges. Nobody hurt, but 2 slightly crumpled vehicles. Luckily we were from Canada, they from Untied Sates and we both had Mexican insurance. So we called our adjusters who promptly arrived about 1 1/2 hours later. We did all the required paperwork ( with the help of our victims daughter to translate). Back on the road to Playa Los Glorias (Mr. Moro's Hotel and Rv park.)
Finally we arrive here at about 5:30 pm to a beautiful half full campground found the perfect site with our front window facing the beach right in front of us, and the beginning of an awesome sunset. We did a quick set up took a few pictures then right to the restaurant about 100 feet away in the campground. Excellent dinner of chips and salsa appetizers, fish, chips, salads, shrimp tacos and cervasa. As we were finishing dinner a large group of Mexicans from the hotel came in for supper and dancing. A very exhausting long day for us so back home , watch a tiny bit of tv before turning in for the night.
