Cancun Birthday Trip #4: Xplor: Amphibious Vehicles and Karma in Action!

THE AMPHIBIOUS VEHICLE ROUTE AND KARMA - These gas powered vehicles were
Amphibious Vehicle going through a cave
somewhat hard to steer, so I (Rob) let Tom drive first (we did go back to the locker and get my glasses so I could see to drive, too). The route went about 2 miles through jungle, with some tight turns on narrow roads and then through two underground caves!   Tom drove flawlessly through one cave and I drove through the other.
  In the entrance of both cave areas was a pool of mud, which we carefully drove through so as not to get soaked with it. It was a fun ride.

KARMA IN ACTION - Before we took the amphibious vehicle adventure, we had lunch. During lunch Tom was near the ice cream machine that he had just tried and it was out. He was still standing there when a kid walked up and also couldn't get ice cream out of it. The kid's father came up behind Tom and said to the boy "did you break it?" Tom told him that that spigot was out of ice cream and the man ignored Tom and gave him attitude. So, Tom walked away. During the Amphibious Vehicle ride, guess who was broken down on the side of the road with a flat tire?  YUP, the idiot father that gave Tom attitude. Karma in Action!


Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
