Ready or not...

On December 23, 2010 we headed out for our maiden journey, a 2000 mile trip from Denver, all the way down to the Nayarit Riviera Mexico, just north of Peurto Vallarta. We planned on exploring some of the smaller coastal towns, deciding which town we like best, and purchasing some land. We would then park the RV, and fly home. Perfect right? Here we are on our first night in a Trinada CO Walmart parking lot.

So for 2 more days and nights we worked our way down to the Mexico boarder. We spent one last night in  Nogales, AZ before crossing into Mexico. The boarder crossing is a piece of cake. We showed our papers, paid a small fee, and bam! the RV is legal in Mexico for 10 years. Here we are in Hermosillo, MX with my wife's parents. 

Next stop Alamos Mexico, a beautiful colonial town that shouldn't be missed. 

Then to Celestino and the wonderful beach-front Celestino RV park. Here I am with Zahida's mom and dad.

Next stop: the appropriately named, Playa Amor. Sorry, I know I'm going fast. This blog is supposed to be about building a tiny house. I think a little backstory is important, plus, it was a fun trip!

We stayed here for 5 days until Zahida's parents left on a bus trip to Guadalajara. We then worked our way further down the coast, settling in sleepy Lo De Marcos for the next 10 days.

For the next couple weeks we were busy. Hitting the streets early and staying out all day searching for just the right lot to buy. At first, we focused our search in San Pancho, but after we found ourselves spending our evenings at Sayulita cafe's, we decided to look there.
