Getting Ready for Texas

Aloha Everyone,

We are staying in Tucson to prepare Honu for our Texas road trip. The sink faucet is broken. We need a good repairman to fix It.

Lee, the owner of Arizona Roadrunner RV Repairs told J.J. to come in at 9:00 am. J.J. and I arrived at 8:30 am! We prepared a list of additional repairs, but J.J. decided to focus on the kitchen faucet. Honu’s Mercedes Benz engine and chassis is imported from Germany. Works on cabinetry, electrical and plumbing were done in Canada by Roadtrek. This means replacement parts must be ordered and shipped. We will return to Tucson in a few weeks for the repair.

Spent nearly an hour at a cost of about $100 to replenish Honu’s camping supplies. J.J. and I also purchased a pair of comfortable slippers and discarded the old ones.

Since coming back to the USA, we have been looking for restaurants that serve authentic Mexican food. We drove around Tucson taking in some interesting sights.

Lunch at Guadalajara Grill.  The service was excellent and we enjoyed conversing in Spanish with our server. The food was typical TEX-MEX with enormous portions compared to México.

Aloha -- Cathi
