Back at the RV park spent the rest of the afternoon and evening getting Ramona ready, packed up Bonita, cleaned and dusted and sorted things out for the border crossing at Nogales tomorrow.

The plan from here is the 6 hour drive to the Border then go another 35 miles to a town called Tubac in Arizona.  My friends Ruth and Kevin put me onto a website club called Couch Surfers…it is a world wide organization for travellers….you can register and offer your home up for overnights guests to sleep on your couch, no money changes hands and it is a chance to meet like minded people…so I figured out where I might be tomorrow late afternoon and searched the Tubac area and found a family and e mailed them and I am invited to stay the night the difference for me is that I do not need to sleep in the house just a level parking spot for Ramona…so my first experience tomorrow..will keep you posted.

From there I travel to Phoenix where I shall spend the day with my poker buddy friend from Nanaimo, Eric, who is wintering down there so it will be fun to see him and catch up.  I then start the long journey north and home.  I have to be in Springfield, near Eugene, Oregon on Wednesday the 20th I have an appointment at a solar dealership to finally I hope get the clicking problem in Ramona solved.

From there it is back to my family on the Bank in Nanaimo in time for Easter dinner!!!!

Good luck with the border crossing. Enjoy you're night with your couchsurfing hosts. We love this site. Kevin is actually couchsurfing Thursday night in Bangor, Maine on his drive back to Nova Scotia.
