It's So Hard to Change the Journey....

The whole point of this blog and the adventure behind it was to take control of our life and not be a bystander while family, finances, and jobs direct what happens every day. We currently face an example of why it is so hard to do. When we sold our property in Maine and moved back to New Hampshire, we had to leave our old doctors behind and find new ones locally. With that accomplished, we had our physicals and took care of prescriptions. Unfortunately, this has turned up a couple of significant medical issues for Pam.

These issues are significant enough that we have suspended our travel plans. As I write this, we were supposed to be enjoying the Gettysburg battlefields and surrounding area and then head west. Instead the RV is in storage. We hope to visit a couple of local campgrounds. But this is a perfect example of how we often have little control over our own journey. And it shows why it is so important to take control (when you can) and enjoy your journey now! I am not going to go into any detail, but commit that we will keep folks updated as we address these medical issues.

And you might have noticed that our web site and blog look a little different. After almost a year, I have learned a lot about the WiX tools and how best to build a website. So I used one of their templates and rebuilt the site in a more structured way. This should improve viewing from a mobile device. All of the existing content has been migrated from the old site to the new one. I have updated a few things like the About Us page and moved the first blog post onto the About This Blog page. Unfortunately, the subscription list was not migrated from the old site to the new site. I will take the liberty of entering those by hand

We are currently planning to return to Silver Springs, Florida for winter. This will depend on some upcoming doctor appointments. But we did reserve a site before we left there. We had a significant amount of routine maintenance done on the RV and she is almost ready for the journey south. One last issue is the engine misfire that started during our return north in May. Fortunately, the local Ford deal services commercial trucks and they should be able to remedy the issue. And we need to decide whether it is time for new tires or not. The existing ones are five years old. The common rule of thumb is replace them at this age.

Lastly, we trust that this update find you all healthy and enjoying your journey. While we are all tired of COVID, it is a reality that must be faced. Stay safe!
