4 days ago we arrived here in Casa Grande, Arizona after spending a night in the parking lot of a casino just outside of Casa Verde. Fortunately Louise was able to come back to the coach with more money in her pocket than when she went in. About 10:30am we pulled into Casa Grande and the first thing we did was to pull up to the fuel pump at Fry’s and “filler-up” please… we found diesel being sold for $2.91 and $2.51 for regular. The funny thing about this is that we could save another $.10 a gallon if we had spent $100 for groceries. Unfortunately we didn’t notice the discount until after I had already put 20 gallons of diesel in the tank. I doubt we’ll be able to use this discount by the time we come back out of Mexico next April/May…nuts ! We had a big list of things that we had to accomplish before this next Sunday so we had to jump right on them. Among them was to purchase our Mexican vehicle insurance, supplemental health insurance, and put “on vacation” our TV and internet satellite systems. I also had to have the oil changed on the Suzuki and the driver’s side windshield replaced on the coach (a gift from a rock coming off of an on-coming trucks wheel). As of today we’ve accomplished all the above and we both will sleep better because of it… We heard from Sol and Carol this afternoon and it seems that they have just had some of that stuff they call “SNOW”…come on guys, get the hell out of there before it gets too deep and let’s head south.
