NEXT DESTINATION? Migrating North soon
Once we got here and settled in I did a little research on what may have triggered (no pun intended) the searches we were subjected to yesterday. We were in no way accused of anything nor was there any sort of verbal interrogation at any time. Everyone just wanted to see in the nooks and crannies of our motorhome and they were very cautious in doing it. There were lots of M16's around and everyone was super cautious. After reading the Brownsville Harold, it seems that some cartel big wheel is on the loose and some marines have been kidnapped and there has been a jail break of some sort, and some grenade throwing at a navy base just south of the border. Apparently this has brought on a bigger military presence and increased attention to searching vehicles in this part of Mexico. Although these are all unsettling things, the chances of us being involved in any of it is about the same as us winning the lottery. I figure one is pretty safe if you just mind your own business and go on your way and thats what we did and we are fine.
So this morning when I came out of the Ponderosa I noticed a cord hanging down by the bedroom slide. Oh oh silly me. I had forgotten about the temporary fix I did which involved one of the bays on the slide and when we put out the bedroom slide last night it stretched the extension cord until it broke!! Woops!! Lucky I didn't grab the broke end of the cord because it was still hot!! And I did look at that slide for obstructions before putting it out but didn't clue into what would happen to the cord.
