On The Road - Outside Torreon

Got off to a good start this morning.  Still wet and muddy at home.   We drove right through Monterrey and had no issues.  We took the route to Santa Catarina and then on to the libre to Saltillo.  Started to get a bit foggy but then the sun came out the rest of the day.  

We took the autopista from Saltillo to Torreon, very very good highway and then we hooked up to the autopista towards Durango.  We are parked outside of Torreon about one hour at a parador.  The military have a small encampment across the road from us.  Not the quietest place but I am sure it will settle down a bit tonight.  

I am expecting cold weather so we have the Mr. Heater as well as the furnace.   No issues to report other than we are having fun listening to Christmas music and watching the paisanos drive by with all their used stuff!

Tomorrow we may not take the autopista on to Mazatlan.  We'll see what happens.  Another 400 kms to go!
