Gearing up for the trip back

All vacations must come to an end.  And so does this one. HP had to leave yesterday.  Today, Saturday, the rest of the “crew” left to return to San Francisco and New York City.

And I began the return drive from Cabo to the States.  The same road that I got here on.  1,000 miles. Same cautions in effect.  No driving at night. I have my bear spray and my satellite phone.

I made it to Loreto tonight. Then maybe to Ensenada on Sunday night.  Sadly I have to be in Newport Beach at 11am Tuesday morning for a funeral service for a dear friend Merritt Van Zant.  Merritt and his wonderful wife Marilyn served as surrogate grandparents for the kids when I first moved to Southern California in the late 1990’s.
