That doesn't mean we won't be on the road, however. Tuesday morning, if all goes well, we'll be heading out Interstate 10 bound for Carson City Nevada. We had hoped to be there for grandson Sam's 18th birthday May 4. Time is too tight for us, considering the way we travel. But we will be there in time for Mother's Day.
On Mother's Day, May 12, daughters Kathie and Deb, along with granddaughter Renee, will be participating in a 5K run or walk in Reno, but we'll all be together for the afternoon. We'll stay in Carson City until just after grandson Sam's high school graduation June 1.

Oh by the way, we'll meet our newest great grandson Mason Kendall Plain while we are there. You can bet GeeGee (that's Suzy's name as a great grandmother) will get plenty of baby holding time!

Never heard of Westfir? Neither had we until Russ and Donna of Travels in Therapy told us about it. The park is right on the Willamette River about 25 miles from Eugene, where Russ and Donna live. We'll be meeting up with these intrepid members of Oregon's Admirers Club and hope to explore some of their state with them.
That's the point where we will depart from our planned trip up through Washington, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado and New Mexico. Instead, we'll wind our gradual way back home to Benson.
Oh, the new bugaboo? Suzy had an echocardiogram Wednesday, and the cardiologist announced Friday that she has the worst possible situation related to atrial fibrillation: she also has pulmonary hypertension, which makes it very difficult for the heart to pump blood through the lungs to be oxygenated. So when the A-Fib kicks in (thank God it is paroxysmal A-Fib, not chronic) the oxygen reaching her brain is minimal -- that's what caused her to pass out two weeks ago.
Once we get back to Benson, we'll locate a pulmonologist who has special interest in pulmonary hypertension (PH) and get started working on that condition. We have learned that PH is quite rare and specialists are nearly as rare. There are some in Phoenix, so we'll get some more motorhome trips over there to take part in whatever we have to take part in.
We are certainly not bored in ... Our Life on Wheels
