3:10 to Yuma!!!

I am heading off to Yuma on or about the 28th of December. My wife got tired of me wining and sniveling about winters, so she is kicking me out for a couple of months while she stays home and having the bathroom gutted and re-built and doesn't want me in the way.

As I like to ride my bike and play in the pool, I am right in my glory. I reactivated my TracFone which will kick in once I cross the border and this plan works for me.

I bought my medical insurance this morning and for anyone from Canada who want a great deal on insurance, then give Travel Medical Plan 1-800-790-7018 a call. I am getting a plan for 68 days plus if I cross the border at any other time of the year up to 30 days, which cost me 279 bucks. I have high blood pressure which is normal under medication but there is only a 10% surcharge. There is a 200 buck deductible on this policy.

I also bought the Good Sam road assistance plan which cost 79 bucks. I just don't want to sit at the side of the highway if I do have problem.

I still have to find a place in Yuma but I made a couple of calls and it looks like finding a spot will not be a problem.

One year in the 90's when we had a truck/camper set-up, Don had a small window of time to join me on a cross country trek where I had most of the summer. We decided that I would take off on my own for three weeks and he would fly to join me in St Louis. Did a lot of morning bicycle riding, and reading. By the end of the three weeks on my own and no one to really converse with, I got pretty good at having long conversations with myself! LOL

Have a great trip!

It sounds like you are good to go. From the looks of things here your wife will be the only person in Alberta by Christmas.

I will hopefully be in Yuma by the first of Jan. I am looking for a spot right now and have a couple of folks in Yuma giving me a hand. I bring my meds with me but may have to make a run to Algodones for some spare glasses and maybe some Kahlua for my wife as she is being such a good sport about my going. I will post when I have a definite location.

Full price for the same meds in Algodones is less than my co-pay at home so I stock up on a years worth at a time....my copay is $45/100 and in Algo full price is $15/100

I pay $25.00 for a 3 month supply on my Blue Cross Plan, and I get to write it off on taxes (well some).

I have found a place in Yuma. I will be renting a lot in the Los Amigoes neighbourhood just off North Frontage Road. The lady who owns the property cannot use it anymore for health reasons and was happy to let me rent it for two months. It used to have a Park Model on it and was one if not the largest lot in this community, so I feel real lucky. My spot backs onto the community hall with pool and hot tub.
