Driving Miss Donna - what does this mean? Whenever I want to go somewhere, if Don is home he will usually drive. He always says he is driving miss Donna! This blog is for our travels, usually with our truck and fifth wheel trailer, but sometimes in our Journey. Don retired October 2011 so hopefully the travelling part will increase! When we are not vacationing check in for updates about our life at home and our wonderful family:)

Road Trip Report

On Thursday we got up EARLY 7:00 a.m. and headed south to Yuma and Mexico.  It was just over 2 hours and then we were walking across a border check into Mexico.  Unique expereince is all I can say.  We went to Los Algodones for a stroll to see what I could buy or what we may want to explore.  But in that quaint little place if you don't want dental (counted 33 offices) eyewear (counted 29) or medicine (counted 11 pharmacies), then there is not much need to visit:)
But it was a cool experience, and we travelled back home through California, along the Colorado River, and across the Parker Dam.
It is unique to see all the boondockers in the dessert.  Don and I excel at staying in the trailer for long periods of time without services, but the money these folks spend on solar power, etc. would sure pay for a lot of serviced camp sites.
But it may be us some day.
Today we are relaxing.  I finally finished my last exam in the secong last class of my National Advanced Certificate in Local Authority Administration, which I call Local Government.  I only have the Law class left then I will be done.
We are off to the beach for the day - so have a good one.  One week left for us and then it's back to the normal life!
