     The cold weather in Oregon drove us to spend winters RVing in México for many years until one day we realized we didn’t want to return to the United States. The warm weather, beautiful colors and textures, and the simple life make us happy here. Read more at

Our First Evening Out in San Miguel de Allende During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Dinner at Hank's New Orlean's Cafe and Oyster Bar

Masked Up and Ready to Enter Hank's
     Masks are just one of the strict requirements for going into public in San Miguel de Allende during the COVID-19 pandemic. We noticed that most people wear them here, though it appears that it’s acceptable to slide your mask down around your neck if you’re walking down the street eating an ice cream cone. Good idea!

OUR CATAMARAN TRIP TO MARIETAS ISLANDS WITH VALLARTA ADVENTURES

A Wonderful Adventure When Family Comes to Visit 

     Jon and I splurged on a week of fun tourist activities when my sister, Cindy and her husband, Al came to visit us in Puerto Vallarta and Sayulita this month! Usually, we live pretty much like the locals in Sayulita. But this was a perfect time to take a catamaran trip to the Marietas Islands where we were looking forward to snorkeling. Vallarta Adventures Eco Discovery Tour included even more enjoyable activities than we expected.

HOW WE DEAL WITH OUR BILLS & OTHER U.S. MAIL WHILE LIVING IN MEXICO

Traveling Mailbox LLC Simplifies Mail Forwarding
           We are frequently asked how we deal with our bills and mail now that we live in México most of the year. So, I decided it was high time I described the process we use. Hopefully this information will help others solve one of the technical difficulties of escaping the rat race north of the border.
Traveling Mailbox LLC is a mail forwarding service that simplifies our lives while living and traveling in Mexico and the United States. Our method of using this handy service has evolved over the years to further simplify receiving mail and packages no matter where we are in our travels. But before I get into explaining how it works for us, let me tell you the first, most important step in simplifying mail issues while living and traveling in México.
Sold Our Home & Became Full-Time RVers, Minimizing Mailed Bills
          Most Important Step: Eliminate Bills! We sold our cars, sold our home in the U.S., paid cash for our motorhome, and stopped using credit cards. That took care of all mortgage and loan payment bills as well as all of the property tax bills, utility bills, and other high expenses that go along with property ownership in the U.S. (You might like to read more about that process in my article MONEYAIN'T EVERYTHING!: Our Road to a Simpler, Healthier Life”.) We even cancelled our U.S. cell phone contracts with Sprint and Verizon—no more bills. We bought an inexpensive Nokia 2 phone and use it with a month-to-month, pay-as-you-go H20 plan in the U.S. and Telcel in Mexico, making payments online.
