More Memories of Los Barriles and East Cape RV Park ... Day 14-16 ...

Checking in ...

A leisurely stroll around the campground ...

... finds Shar dumping (This is a little chore that RVers engage in every few days.)

And the rest goes in here.

A favorite mode of transportation locally, down the arroyos, up in the hills, over hill and dale ...

Our last night found us all at Tio Pablo's for a fabulous dinner (each one seems to top the last). This is a good beginning.

It's fun to watch Happy's changing wardrobe.

My table ... me, Pat, Betsy, Marilyn, Louise, Thelma Val and Linda C.

Okay, it's time to tell the story of Thelma and Louise.

You've heard of those two.

In October 2003 some of us were together on another Fantasy Tour to the Copper Canyon of Mexico, over on the mainland. So the story goes as our Wagonmasters (same on both of these trips) were getting acquainted with their new trippers, as Portia tells the story, when she was introduced to Rosalie Wood and Julie Lawyer, Rosalie purportedly said, "We are your Thelma and Louise." They didn't even own an RV, had never driven one. They rented one! They wanted to go on that trip. So a seasoned RVer or not, I'll let you imagine the sorts of antics those two got into.

But I'm here to tell you they insisted, persisted, existed, and resisted nothing ... bought their own rig after that trip and have never stopped ... I don't think. Now a priceless, seasoned pair of RVing Women par excellance!

And to finish this little piece, Baja California Sur has come of age. No third world country here.

My little inspiration for today:

If you don't like something, change it.
If you can't change it, change your
attitude. -- Maya Angelou
