It’s finally here.

At 1800 Pacific time tomorrow, we have to be on our freighter. We’ve had a great time on our road trip and time in California and are sad to see it come to a close.

Yesterday we had a fantastic time playing in the ocean and drinking around the fire. Today we went to Ensenada (nearby town in Mexico) and played board games. I spent the majority of the day recovering from a slight hangover (Tequila never again) and the ladies are almost entirely better from their respiratory illnesses, thanks to the Z-Packs we purchased here. Our trip to town was interesting, as we ran into many people wearing facemasks due to this swine flu issue that has cropped up. We’ve not known anyone that is sick, and doubt we will. We also got stopped at a military checkpoint to have the Suburban searched. Indi asked for a picture, but was denied. Good times all around, though. No hassles or issues at all.

The food has been great, the company better. We met this wonderful neighbor Kathleen (hello, our newest reader!) and were given the lay of the land by the most hospitable host. I got a lot of pictures and we all gained many new memories.

Tomorrow is going to be a rush back to America (hopefully no problems at the border) and gatherings of our last stuff before boarding. I hope to get one more post in before we get on the ship but, if not, we’ll see you all again in 15 days and will be writing from the other side of the Earth.

Much love to you all!

About rhysfunk

Rhys Martin was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1981. In 2009, he sold everything he owned and left the country, living out of a backpack for ten months. He discovered a passion for photography while traveling throughout Southeast Asia and Europe. After returning home, he looked at his home town and Oklahoma heritage with fresh eyes. When he began to explore his home state, Rhys turned his attention to historic Route 66. As he became familiar with the iconic highway, he began to truly appreciate Oklahoma’s place along the Mother Road. He has traveled all 2,400 miles of Route 66, from Chicago to Los Angeles. He has also driven many miles on rural Oklahoma highways to explore the fading Main Streets of our small towns. Rhys has a desire to find and share the unique qualities of the Sooner State with the rest of the world. Cloudless Lens Photography has been featured in several publications including This Land, Route 66 Magazine, Nimrod Journal, Inbound Asia Magazine, The Oklahoman, and the Tulsa World. In 2018 he published his first book, Lost Restaurants of Tulsa. Rhys loves to connect with people and share his experiences; ask him about enjoyable day trips from Tulsa, locations along Route 66, and good diners or burger joints along the way.
