THE THING ABOUT AN UNSTRUCTURED VACATION IS THAT THE PLANS CAN CHANGE AT ANYTIME.
INSTEAD OF GOING TO DETROIT WE CROSSED THE INTERNATIONAL BRIDGE NEAR KINGSTON AND TOOK ROUTE 81.
3600 KILOMETERS AND 36 HOURS OF NONSTOP DRIVING AFTER WE LEFT OTTAWA WE WERE IN LAREDO TEXAS. WE ATE AND SLEPT ON THE MOVE AND NEVER STOPPED DRIVING.
THE ROUTE WE TOOK WAS NEW YORK STATE (SYRACUSE), PENNSYLVANIA, MARYLAND, WEST VIRGINIA, VIRGINIA, TENNESSEE (KNOXVILLE, NASHVILLE, MEMPHIS'S), ARKANSAW (LITTLE ROCK), TEXAS (DALLAS, AUSTIN, SAN ANNTONIA, LAREDO)
ARRIVE IN LAREDO, TEXAS AT 7:00 pm ON WEDNESDAY.
IT TOOK TO 10:00pm TO GET OUR VISITOR`S PERMIT, VEHICLE PERMIT, VEHICLE INSURANCE, BUYING PESO`S AND GETTING A HOTEL ROOM ($45).
LEFT LAREDO AT 10:00am ON THURSDAY GOING TO MONTERREY, SALTILLO, ZACATACIC, GAUDALAJARA, LAKE CHAPALA.
ARRIVED IN LAKE CHAPALA AT 10:00pm AFTER ANOTHER 12 HOURS OF NONSTOP DRIVING AND ANOTHER 1200 KILOMETER.
OF NONSTOP DRIVING
AM NOW IN THE PROCESS OF SETTLING INTO LAKE CHAPALA.

AND GREETINGS TO MY SON AND DAUGHTER IN LAW WHO ARE VACATIONING IN BANGKOK OR SOMEWHERE IN THAT AREA OF ASIA.

THAT IS ALL FOR NOW
