My records show it was nearly six weeks ago when I last posted, and at that time we were in Kansas finishing up our visit with Margaret (Alice's sister) and Ralph Baringer. Since then it is been another 3,561 miles.
We drove to Memphis to visit with Jim Wilkinson at CUSEQ and talk about doing my third book on the Memphis earthquake (plan to do the book but change the tenor to one of recovery). Jim said he would help with some sample recovery plans.
Then we went to Collinsville, IL to see son David and his family, Krista and Faythe Anne. We joined them for a stay at Lake Sangchris up near Springfield. I did not realize I was spending so much time in the sun, and got a reaction to one of my meds that made my skin extra photosensitive -- I had some real burn problems for the next week as we worked our way through WI and into ND.
In Montana we spent time at the Teddy Roosevelt Nat Park and saw some buffalo. Then we went on to Great Falls and had the brakes replaced on the truck. From there we stopped over in West Glacier and took a tour bus trip up to the pass. It was an awesome view, and the tour bus was the way to go.
We then headed on into WA and are now staying at the Chehalis TTN Resort for a week and seeing Ashlea (our adoptive grand-daughter) and her family. I have been fighting with trees trying to find a satellite TV signal (unsuccessfully) for the past couple of days.One of the big events on this trip is our decision to replace our smart phones with really smart phone. We bought Samsun Galaxy SIII phones and an upgrade of out 5spot WiFi router with a JetPack router at the Best Buy in Olympia. The difference in lifestyle is awesome.
Both dogs are doing pretty well. Wolf is still having trouble breathing, and the lasix is increasing the urination rate, but he seems to be happy. Teddy is enjoying the travels and is settling in to our life style.
Next Monday we head for Oregon to start our leisurely trip back to Jojoba. We expect to be there on 9/24.
So that summarizes our current status here is Washington. I hope to be more prompt in my next update.
