Wooohooo! We made it to El Rosario, Mexico. We woke up at 5:15am, said our goodbyes to the Simkos, and then headed to get gas before making our way to the border. Our odometer read 70,682 miles- the start of our 30,000 mile journey to the tip of South America! As luck would have it though, when we were pulling out of the station, Tree noticed one of our headlights was dead. After some impassioned fist shakes by Tree we made a quick detour to the Sprinter dealership to have the bulb replaced.
On a final note, when we got to our hotel where we’ve had reservations set for a regular room since September, they told us that they’d lost the record of our reservation and had sold out of standard rooms so, instead, they’d have to upgrade us to the bi-level, family-size room for no extra charge.
