6AM - Gasoline
The price of gasoline here in the City of El Centro, California is $4.15/gallon.  MsTioga gets about 8 miles/gallon.  So right now, it costs about 52 cents in gasoline to drive one mile.

In Mexico gasoline is selling for 9 pesos per liter which converts to $2.80/gallon.  So, MsTioga travels a mile in Mexico for only 35 cents.

We on the TiogaRV Team are not going to concern ourselves about gasoline cost.  Besides, MsTioga says, "I'm worth it!"

11AM - John & Mimi
MsTioga has made a Camp in the neighborhood of our friends, John and Mimi who live in the San Diego area. We first met John and Mimi during 2003. That was during our very first winter on-the-road. It seems to me that we have returned here every year since then. Several very nice Thanksgiving dinner celebrations were spent here!

During the evening, the three of us went out to eat at John and Mimi's favorite Italian restaurant. Later on, I spent the nite at this camp.  The climate here is very mild.  I am comfortable outside wearing a T-shirt and short pants.  No heater needed during the nite time either!
