Lo Siento, So Sorry for no blogs lately.
I headed out to San Carlos, Mexico for Labor Day holiday early Thursday am, Sept 3rd and ran into the hurricane outside Hermosillo, Mexico. Our party of 6 with 2 vehicles got to within 30 miles of San Carlos and had to turn back because highway 15 the coastal road to San Carlos, Matzalan and Puerto Vallarta was washed completely out due to Hurricane Jimena.
In Hermosillo we picked up 6 more vehicles to caravan with, all 4 wheel drives and took the back way into Bahia de Kino, there were 3 helicopters on the flooded back road and we had to have the federales get them moved. After 2 days of drinking Cabo Wabo and coronas in Hermosillo and in the vehicle while waiting we were the first to arrive in San Carlos at 4:00pm Friday. Luckily, we have CDs of Sammy Hagar, Jimmy Buffett and Kenny Chesney to help ease the pain along with our great friend Don Julio and good ol' sidekick Cabo Wabo.
This is the first day that we have had internet or phone service so you are receiving the first outside communication from the San Carlos and Guaymas area.
Devastation everywhere, check out youtubes hurricane jimena and jimena for pictures of what happened.
I need to celebrate life with mi amigos in San Carlos and help clean up the town. Saludos,
