Laura and I send our love and prayers for you both.

Words alone can not express the devastation we feel at hearing of your wife's diagnosis. Please let us know if there is anything we can do.

Life throws us a curve sometimes. I would hate to be without Dee Deebut I'd have to go on living, and to me that means camping, flying, fishing, and being a grandfather. You are both in our thoughts and prayers.

Don, very sad to hear this.
Lost my mother to cancer a year. "67"
Was very excited when I was able to meet you and Mary this summer!
You two participated in all of our activities and had a ball!
Our thoughts are with you!

A very close friend lost her husband 3 years ago and she is still camping with us. She loves camping. We have a pretty close knit group of family and friends who supported her and everything is OK. She does tow her trailer.

After all the tests we were informed that it was stage four and had advanced to the liver/ one kidney/ pelvis bones and various other parts. The initial shock that there is no way to stop or cure this has sunk in now, she was offered chemo and radiation and being older we have seen what that does so she said no.
Go do your bucket list in the next few weeks the Dr said but the pain meds kind of stopped that. We had just bought a new truck and were shopping around for a new fifth-wheel, we had even settled on a silverback 33IK, she is now telling me that she wants me to keep this going and to get what we decided on, I am wondering how many people keep camping on their own ( dog included) after losing their loved one.
I am sorry to hear this news. You are on target about doing stuff on the budget list sooner than later.

I found that some will go on and continue camping after losing a loved one while others do not. After losing my brother to cancer my sister-in-law wanted to keep camping but due to financial reasons she had to sell their 5th wheel. Someday she hopes to borrow a RV from family friends and camp again.

My sister mother-in-law continues to camp and drives the MH across country just like when her husband was alive.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
