A Change of Plans, September 25

John.  And, yes, he does play Santa!
I just found out that John has cancer.  It's a slow growing tumor so the surgery to remove one of his kidneys is not scheduled for another 3 to 4 weeks.  So, I've canceled our hotel and airline reservations to meet in New England, and canceled future rendezvous with friends on the east coast ... hopefully all to be rescheduled for a later date.  Thank you all for being so understanding and gracious.

I've started heading west, going home.  I'm taking the scenic route, but remaining close to the Interstates in case I need to be back quicker than expected.  I'll continue to catch up on my blog of traveling adventures ... thanks for your patience.

I've also just started a blog for John and I.  So, if you want to know the latest details of our lives and, specifically on John's health right now, go to

... still following my heart ...

  1. When I came across your blog searching female solo rv, I thought, "Ah, a woman lucky enough with a perfect life to be able to hit the road!" I was stunned into silence when I read of you losing your daughter and your husband's health challenge. You are an inspiration to define your healing, plan your healing and move forward on your healing. Our beautiful country nourishes us and has this gift available for everyone. I did a roadtrip in 08 with a boyfriend. Now I want to pick up my remaining 10 states alone. But I thought, jeez, can I do this? HELL YES!! (because of you) going when total collapse would be expected. I am stronger than I thought and my apology for envying you for the wrong reason -- I envy your fortitude. I AM WOMAN, HEAR ME ROAR! Regards, Gayle

  2. Thanks for your comments Gayle. I'm glad you found encouragement ... it's a wonderful country out here! Happy trails to you.

  3. Rereading your posts and enjoying your experiences, it looks that your friend Pat has a silver Town and Country minivan just like mine! I'd love to hear details of her interiors mods for the MYWEERV! I call mine "The Coop," and I'd love to have an ex. of a good interior mod. Do you have any pix you could e-mail me or description of what she shared? Where are we all going next?

  4. You are in my thoughts as you make your way home--New York is a raincheck!! Take care, my friend, and I'll see you when you get back. Sunny

  5. Thanks for all of your support and understanding Sunny. I made it home last night. NYC's on a raincheck!


Please make a comment. I'd love to hear from you ...
