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.
