Our last day in the US - we'll full day that is!!! Needed to get some final purchases for our move across to New Zealand in the form of two bags to hold our sleeping bags. We left the house at 09h25 and had a look around a number of shops for a large "duffle bag but established that this was not a common requirement and that it would have been easier to order it online!!! Anyway we managed to find two large bags that should be suitable.
We then headed off to the Mexican border (actually the junction before) and the Las Americanos premium retail outlet shops. Quick visit to get some final running gear for Pam and some clothes for us all (Columbus Day sales made sure we got some good deals.) Could have shopped there all day as all stores pretty much had 40 to 60% off.
Finally wrapped up - got our new bags and headed back to the house. We made a stop at Soapy Joes to get the car washed. We managed to get that done with quite a bit of elbow grease to get rid of 3 months of bugs of the front of the car. Those Tennessee critters were tough. Dave the attendant's first question to me was enquiring as to whether I came from Jhb or Cape Town - clearly used to the accent in the neck of the world. Final packing in the afternoon prior to Gavin, Candice & Cayleigh arrived back from 2 weeks in Cabo. It was great to see Gavin again after so many years and meet Candice and Cayleigh. We popped out to Chipotle for some Mexican Food and then back home for some play (for the kids) & final packing (for Pam & I) and as early a night as possible. Not looking forward to the next 2 days as it is could be a hard slog.
