Friday 4th November 2016....last day in the good old US of A!!!!!!!

I did not have to check out till noon so took my time this morning over breakfast and some e mails and route planning and then carefully packed Little Bluey...everything fitted perfectly and at noon in the hot morning sun I was on my way!!!

Really enjoyed my short time in Tucson thanks Linda for everything hugs to you!!!

Interstate driving almost to Tombstone..

 I have visited the town before and seen the tacky tourist gun fights before so just cruised through this time...


Soon onto the open one lane and quiet roads!!
 In Bisbee this was a major industry!!







By 3.00 I reached the border town of Douglas and my airbnb place...I had been in touch with the owner and he informed me that all was ready for me he would not be around as he was in Canada but told me where the key was in the back garden....
I knew from the site and the photos that this was not going to be a 5 star experience and it was small and basic but first of all the key was not where  he said it was but the door was open...it took me all of 30 seconds to decide that there was no way I was staying here.....it was filthy, dust and grime on the counters, the floor disgusting and the bathroom I would not rather talk about...how he received 8 previous good ratings is beyond me.......
I drove into town and found this old historis Hotel, it is basic but clean and has a fridge in my room so I am happy...
I did send an e mail to the airbnb owner explaining what i found and told him I would not stay there I shall contact airbnb when i get to SMA and i feel sure they will refund the money to me this place does not do their reputation any good at all.....funny 18 months of travel and my last airbnb is a bust!!!

My room is basic but clean
 I bet is was a great place to stay in the hey day!!!
I am in McDonald's having supper and using their WiFi..

Today's drive...


I plan to cross the border at sunlight and I have about an 8 hour drive to the hotel I always stay at in Jimenez, Mexico!!!

Not sure if I will have Internet tomorrow....if not plan to be in SMA Sunday around supper time!!!

Have a great safe and happy weekend ...
Yashi Kochi!!

I guess that while being in Canada the owner is not in control of the coeanliness of the place, still it's no excuse really. It will be interesting to see how quickly your money will be refunded. Safe travels in Mexico.
