San Jose.....

There is not much to do here but rent our SUV and get some shut-eye before we head for the  hills :) Just 20 minutes away, it's a different world....

You're Invited....

Please join us virtually....for Bert's "Never-A-Dull-Moment" tour of Costa Rica's Central Valley area.

Here you/we will visit two volcanoes (one erupts daily) a waterfall, a lake/German area, an orphanage, a Greek city (the cleanest in all of Latin America) an artisan village, and then back to the orphanage to spend Sunday morning services.....After which we will return our rental car and head home.....

Our Travel Journal.....

Our travel-journal is the preferred choice of communication as phone calls are approx. $7.00 per minute, & entering personal passwords into hotel, or Internet cafe computers is NOT advised.

Jake has his hand=held i Pod, so he's typing messages to his friends and family (texting?) Wow, how convenient is that ? The next time we travel, I think it will be my choice, too....

Talk To Us.....

How are you dong???? How's the weather where you are??

Feel free to leave comments, and send messages.

f you are into texting....Send it to

A personal message for Jerry or Mary Lou? Be sure to leave the person's name in the subject line and I will deliver it to them unopened....

Local contact or emergency-
We have someone at our house to care for the chickens, etc....Please! do not disturb them there....
In case of an emergency contact us or locally you can cal Jim or Joe Smith or Jeff Bert or Suzi Paul. or Dave and Ruby Scott....

Shimmy? He's with Jim and Jen....:P they won't let dogs into CR without sending them to quarantine jail first :( We wish he could see the Chihuahuas that are bigger than him here...No little Chi's see yet!!!

That's all for now....Hope to hear from  you soon :) WE miss you!!!

Vaya Con Dios~

So glad to see you all made it safely to CR. I can't wait to follow along and see all the pixs you post. Thanks for including us in your adventures.
Love you all and may Christ keep you safe. Give all the kids hugs from us.

Thank you for following along :] and for prayers...we were blessed to find the orphanage yesterday! Tell Taryn that I met Genesis, and took many pix of her, she blew a bubble for T....Morgan's pix are now on display :) and their gifts will be saved for Christmas presents. The children found Dad (Jeremy) most facinating, and listened intently as he told his story of being a sailor, and how the Lord saved him...I'll be posting the pix soon...:) Helen is a lovely woman/director, and was an encouragement to Jacob's desire to join medical missionaries. We met a "tia" from Vancouver Canada :) one from Switzerland, and the local women who have mucho-grande hearts for serving the home, hogar de vida...Their biggest prayer request is that the broken-families will be restored, and the children will be reunited with their parents...If not, that they will be adopted by loving parents who love and serve our Lord Jesus Christ ...

God Bless You, thank you for all your help....How is Shim?
We miss everyone!

From Roxanne, To Jake on

HI ~ and Welcome and THANKS for following our "Trip/Travel-Log"....
This is a totally cool site...and a great way to communicate and share pix with family and friends, especially with International travel...
The hard part is being able to add all we see and do....
Once we get home, we'll get to do more...Jake has helped me a lot take pix and upload far we have taken approx.300 total ....
Another cool feature is that you can make a book/type thingy-and unlike other travel-logs, this one does not erase your pix after 30 use to cost money to create one, this site is free....
Glad I checked comments ~ HELLO ~ to you and everyone who visits :)
