Moving day!

Tucson Hillbillies, originally uploaded by seaparents.

Tomorrow is the day we have all been waiting for! We have been talking about this adventure to most of you for several years now, and we are finally preparing to leave. After two hot months in Tucson, we are packed and ready to go, as you can see by our (slightly over)loaded car. We hope to leave around 4:00 AM tomorrow so we can be at the Nogales border crossing by 5ish. Assuming all goes well with customs we should get more than halfway to Puerto Vallarta by tomorrow afternoon and all the way by Saturday. Boat preparations have already begun as we have purchased solar panels, batteries and related items to take with us. Visits from family will occupy most of our pre-departure time. I'm glad we are able to see all available family in the area before we leave since we are unsure of the date and frequency of future visits. My dad, Deb and sister Lindsey will be joining us in PV on the 6th. We will post updates on the blog when we can and hope to get plenty of visitors. Ta ta for now.

We go on the boat in four days. I am glad all of us are. I want to go on the boat now. The boat will be fun I know it. We go swimming a lot here. We play in the sprinkler too, we do other things too.


I can't wait to get down to Mexico or wait to see the boat. I have been waiting and waiting the whole time we have been here to leave. Every night I say to my dad why can't we leave right now. The car ride is going to be two days long and I hope I do not get bored but it is a possibility.


Our boat is nice . We will swim everyday,we will do school everyday,we can do anything as long as we are on our beautiful boat. I love our boat. I wonder if are boat will last us the rest of are life. We have a great boat. I call the boat beautiful. We wish we were all on the water. Our boat is great. We love our boat.

the inspection, originally uploaded by seaparents.

WE NOW ARE PROUD OWNERS OF A 38FT LAGOON, OFFICIALLY AS OF YESTERDAY!!!!!!! Our excitement has grown tremendously and so has our lack of patience. It is getting harder to be in Arizona when we have a boat waiting for us in Mexico. I am sure the next few weeks will go by in a flash but for now it seems like they are crawling very very slowly. I have to say I can't believe we are really doing this. I mean that in a good way, it is just something you dream of or talk about, but don't usually do. My life has taken a new road to a new destination and I don't know what to except from it. There is something really relaxing to not have your life mapped out, to not know what is around the next bend in the road, to be free.
