So cool, Mexico is on the other shore! Thea has a new seat belt harness, works great! And can leave windows down without worring about her jumping out. I would add now to my mantra that there is pros and cons to any situation in life that we have different needs at different times, and different locations meet them to varying degrees. Big bend is a really long haul to get here,to me it would be best to plan on spending a week at least unless one just wanted to drive around:). It is beautiful and solitutude can be found outside the campgrounds. Inside it is very busy. The hookup sites are on black top and only a few feet away from each other. In the non hookup part I found a very nice site on the edge with distance from people. If you want to socialize this is a great place to do it! Showers are two dollors for 5 min and I am opposed to that in principle so I am supplementing at the dump station:) no cell phone but wifi. It is a great place to walk Thea as they are very strict about dogs being on leashes. Good place to read and cook, beautiful!
