Back to Blogging



I had someone approach me a few weeks ago on Isla and tell me they use to always read my blog. It was nice to know that someone recognized me from my blog. Their memory must be much better than mine because my last post was over a year ago!!

So this morning, I thought I would go to my blog and see if I can still even log in. Wahla!! Here I am.

So what have I been doing this past year? Mostly the same, with the exception of the fact that I am now a full time truck driver for our trucking company. Not the vocation of choice, but with the economic times I did what I had to do. The benefits.....I'm sitting on Isla, since December 22nd, writing this blog!! Our trucking season lasts about 7 months of the year. I'm working up to full time winters on Isla, but this year will have to go back to Minnesota a few weeks on and off to take care of business and family.

Today, Biggy B and I are going to plan a trip to Merida for a few days. Have to get our game plan together to leave tomorrow. The weather hasn't been the best on Isla and is suppose to stay the same...cloudy, windy, probably rain, so a road trip is in the making.

So, fellow bloggers, followers and friends. I am back, for now. I will start posting some Isla and Merida thoughts when we get back from Merida. Until then....great to be back!!

Road trip: If you have a extra three days. Go the southern route and take a look at Calakmul, Xpuil has a few trucker type places that are clean and have good food. It is an easy one day run from where you are, I drove down from Merida with time to spare in one day of driving. Calakmul is in the same class as Tikal but no one goes there.

Great to see you back blogging! Funny, I had just deleted the bookmark I had for your blog since you hadn't posted in so long. I will add it back! Hope to run into you in the next 2 weeks.

Welcome back to Blogland. We have missed your special brand of insight. I thought of you the other day while editing my blog roll. For some reason, I knew I should leave it there -- until you returned. I look forward to your posts. I am about to go through some changes myself.

Nice to have you back to blogging. I'll be adding you back to my blog roll!!! Enjoy Merida and if possible, take the Lujo ticket! Cocoon!

Enjoy your time in Merida. We have a place in Progreso about 30 minutes from Merida and the city is the best in this hemisphere. The Paris of Latin America so see as much as you can!

Bravo for that person who spoke to you on Isla! I never deleted your bookmark either, but I was bummed way back then when you stopped blogging right in the middle of a trip report. How surprised and pleased I was this morning to see a new post.

It seems a lot of the Islaholics are visiting more of the Yucatan and Merida lately. We also are going there in March before heading to Isla.
