Out of Order



I had a medical emergency Monday and drove to the nearest hospital in Blythe, California that evening.  This is not COVID related.  Let me tell you I am so glad I made that decision to seek help.  I am better now but don’t know what lies in store for me.  With that uncertainty I am worried about Beans so for her safety and care I have decided to make the drive back to Northern California where I know she will be comfortable and safe.  Just the three hours I was in the emergency room she was so happy to see me come back to the RV at 10:30 PM.  They know when things aren’t right.  

Normally I wouldn’t be posting about this but I felt a responsibility to my followers and it just wouldn’t be right to go silent on you.  So I guess the blog will be inactive for awhile.  I hope I can get back on track and not lose those of you who have followed along all these years.
Thank you for being there.
John and Beans

    1. Thank you John. I sure do not want to leave here. I spent today putting away everything I just threw in yesterday afternoon. Done. Now ready for the long drive over the next few days.

    1. Yes, I appreciate you signing on for the journey only for it to go down in flames right away. You can always go back in time, but better still if you hadn’t noticed, over on the right hand side of the page are links to free kindle books. They have details left out from the blog posts.

    1. Yeah, I have been thinking about it and will try to post something every once in awhile. No doubt we’ll come across some weird person or instance on the long drive back.

  4. A medical emergency sounds frightening, and you are so good to care for Beans, and head north, thinking of her care and safety. Be well.

    1. Yes and it could have gone really bad. I am just glad I made the decision to break camp during the day “just in case” that night. Well even before night came I knew I had to do this. One reason why I delayed was because of very high winds all day and it not being safe to drive. Fortunately the hospital was only 25 miles away, all Interstate and I tucked in behind a big rig to block the wind.
