The motorhome is parked at Mary’s home in Murphys, California. She is busy with personal matters. She departs with her 14-year-old grandson for a trip to Turkey on April 17th.
In other news…
Three days ago I got my Ford Bronco II back after a transmission rebuild. It seems to run fine. However as part of the 3 year, 50,000 mile warranty, they require to re-inspect the vehicle after two weeks. So I’ll return to the transmission shop on Monday, April 21st. During the next few days, I’ll be busy with routine maintenance and cleaning on both the Bronco and motorhome. My actual departure date will be determined by the receipt of the telephone call discussed below.
Last September during my eye exam at the Seattle, Washington VA Hospital I was told I have a large cataract in my right eye that should be attended to in the next year.
On March 24th, we drove the Bronco 104 miles (one way) to the VA Medical Center at Livermore, California for my new eye exam which confirmed my cataract in my right eye. I was told I’m a candidate for surgery. I now await a phone call to establish an appointment for a consultation with an eye surgeon.
During my eye exam I was told that the surgery would be performed at the large Palo Alto facility near San Francisco. Just like being in the military, I am now standing in line and waiting! 🙂
A more relaxed mode..
After our 682 day on-the-go 2011-2013 circumnavigation of the United States, we have decided to slip into a more relaxed mode. In the next few months we will be traveling through areas previously explored. Unless we do something unusual, this Blog will feature a photo album from the circumnavigation and will change daily.
