Lou, it's time for an update on how everything is going health wise and 5er prep wise.

Some of us are concerned about our friends.

Sorry folks, been busy as you can imagine.

She has been on home PD since Friday and is doing GREAT.
We even went out to my 45th high school reunion Saturday night and she had a good time (even ate some of that awful food). She refused to dance on the table this year. Maybe next time.

Here is a photo of her "setup" (including her CPAP and PD machine) and the "closet storage" for her 30 day supply of goodies.

Note the "pilot required" checklists stapled to the drapes

Guess I am past due for an update (thanks for the reminder OC).

She is doing better, but we hit another snag. She is getting some sharp pains from the catheter during drains and we are working on what might be causing it. CT Scan on Friday and will get results on Monday.

Completely emptied the camper and will get a good empty weight of the truck and camper. Then we plan to load 10 days of supplies and equipment and weigh it again. If there is enough payload left for us, we will keep our Flagstaff; if not, we will be shopping for a Wildcat at the rally.

We will be bringing the title, just in case!

Thank you for the kind offer. As in any operation with a "Logistics Tail" we solved our issue with a special ops team repositioning a cache of supplies.

F.R.O.G. Bob agreed to take a drop shipment so we could "resupply while underway" (navy term for "hitting the cache")

Just the Title? How about the check book.

Happy to here your DW is making progress and I hope the pain problem will be corrected quickly. Looking forward to meeting you and the better half at Goshen.
