Mineral de Pozos, MX

Mineral de Pozos, MX

Sometimes when we are on the road, we just have to trust our hunches.  Trusting hunches can work out well, or it can be all wrong.  Mineral de Pozos or San Pedro de las Pozos turned out to be a good hunch.  We needed a place that was temperate and calm in contrast to...
Guanajuato activities and goodbye!

Guanajuato activities and goodbye!

Guanajuato was a great city for us to spend four weeks in.   When we promised ourselves that we would be back, we had no idea that we would enjoy it so much.  In addition to our Spanish language classes at La Adelitas we always found events going on and things to fill...
Visiting a vet in Mexico

Visiting a vet in Mexico

While we were staying in Guanajuato with The Slow Dutchman, everyone began noticing that Seri was more lethargic than normal.  We attributed it to challenges with the city walking schedule- some dogs just don’t want to go walk on crowded streets.  Then she...
Guanajuato, still!

Guanajuato, still!

We have been in Guanajuato for quite some time now.  So long that we are familiar with schedules in the neighborhood and we notice when changes happen.  There have been some really fun events going on.  Here are a few highlights! There is nothing quite like a baseball...
Guanajuato- continued

Guanajuato- continued

While we are hanging out with our friends The Slow Dutchman , we will spend some time exploring the city of Guanajuato.  The four of us (and three dogs) rented a house for several weeks and enrolled in Spanish language school.  For fun, we signed up for a food tour...
We stumbled upon a music festival!

We stumbled upon a music festival!

Somewhere outside of Durango, Mexico we crossed another geographic milestone.  This is a first for the new camper rig.   Driving into Zacatecas we knew that we were in for a treat.  Narrow streets, tight curves and low hanging tree branches set the tone for a colonial...
La Ferriera- the first pyramid of the trip

La Ferriera- the first pyramid of the trip

As we left Durango we felt the burgeoning city melt away.  We were headed about 7 kilometers away to an archeological dig site known as La Ferriera.  This is located next to a small, dusty village with dirt streets.  We pulled in to the village and let the dogs run on...
A different look at Mazatlan (electrifying)

A different look at Mazatlan (electrifying)

Mazatlan is probably viewed by most people as a resort town, a tourist destination and a cruise ship stopover.  But we managed to experience Mazatlan very differently.   We arrived on a busy Sunday and quickly located a boon docking location using iOverlander.  This...
The journey begins, again.

The journey begins, again.

The journey has begun with a stop at a familiar location.  We lived in Bahia de Kino (Kino Bay) Mexico for a few years, so we love returning to say hello to old friends and scenery.   We parked at Islandia RV Park in “Old Kino” and enjoyed a few nights of...
Parting words…. the back of the camper!

Parting words…. the back of the camper!

The fact that you are reading this post means that you probably know the name of our blog.  “It’s not a slow car, it’s a fast house” has been our tagline for several years. This traveled well with us all around North America.  Now as we head...
Water systems on the camper

Water systems on the camper

One of the features we added to the camper was a secondary water system. We have the original Northstar water tank which holds 30 gallons of water.  The fill location is on the side of the camper.  This water flows through the water heater, the kitchen faucet and the...
Backseat box OR the backseat goes to the dogs!

Backseat box OR the backseat goes to the dogs!

One of the custom features we had developed in the truck cab is the back seat storage box. When we sold the bed of the truck, we also sold the back seat.  (yes, there really was a person that wanted to buy our stock GMC rear seat!)  With the back seat removed, we...
Sand ladders and screen door

Sand ladders and screen door

We added a couple of interesting things to the camper recently.  Both of them add something to the appearance, but also have important functional roles.  There are many interesting modifications to our Northstar Arrow.  You can read the list on the main page, or...
First border crossing in new rig!

First border crossing in new rig!

The initial test runs went smoothly throughout the Arizona desert.  So we were ready to cross the border and head to Puerto Penasco (Rocky Point), Mexico.  This is a crossing that we have used hundreds of times in the past 30+ years.  Rocky Point has fallen into and...
Beginning to roll, again.

Beginning to roll, again.

With my mothers house sold and all our belongings distributed again, we were ready to roll.  It seems that it was harder to get rid of it all the second time around.  But it’s gone and we are ready to go.   We began with stops to see the kids.  And we spent some...
Who is AT Overland?

Who is AT Overland?

This name has been mentioned in our blog a few times.  Some of you have asked who they are, where they are and what they do.  A few of our readers have told us that they have been to AT Overland for products or called in with questions. On their website  AT...
