TODAY IS THE LAST full day I will spend in Laredo because I will be at the border before sunrise tomorrow, the twenty-fifth day of this month. However, today, I spend most of it in final preparation before my crossing.
I have been boxing up much of what I have in my van and so as to not carry it across the border into Mexico with me, I send it to the home of my mother in Pasadena who will keep it for me until I return to Texas next year. After going to the post office one more time today and mailing the final set of boxes, I then prepare something to eat for my mid day meal.
Later, I go to Casa Blanca State Park, pay the four dollar for the day pass fee and then drive to the shower house to take a hot shower. Afterwards, I do laundry and finally go to the WiFi hot spot.
