This is the public park, where I camped last night. I had permission from local police and was across the street from a hospital so I felt pretty good about sleeping there.

I hung my hammock in a dark corner where people passing couldn't see me and half an hour later the only lights in the park came on...right above my head. Everybody could see me all night long. I didn't bother moving my hammock and just slept through the night with a spotlight on me.

I packed up and left as quickly as possible this morning, stopping only long enough to take this picture.

Difficult is not the same thing as impossible.

I have a hard time believing that... but what do I know anyway. Seems once they figure it out, it's a constant source of entertainment and inspiration.

I think you're the only one looking at TrackMyTour! But it's still fun updating each day.

Looking very good Debbie.. Mexico seems to be treating you well and coming along quite nicely.
Good on ya !

off course ?

I can see Mexico from there... nice going Debbie!

Little world seeking cats don't weigh or eat so much, he can come can't he ?

Sweet !
May I be the first to say....
