Going Home

Salinas, CA

Things are progressing nicely here in California.

My Mom is getting stronger and we think she
is well enough to be by herself again.
I've made airline reservations to go back to Custer
on Friday August 5th.
We'll finish off the summer working there.

Unfortunately, I'm not finding anything
available in September for us to return to.
We cannot afford to stay in parks in this area
unless we workamp.

I'm looking into us doing gate guarding
again until January or February, 
and then see what we can find in California.
I feel that my Mom will be fine.
She's got a big support system
with my son, and friends from church.

I've had some social time while I've been here.
Last week I drove up to Coyote in Morgan Hill,
and spent some time with our friends Connie & Greg.
They recently sold their condo in Ohio,
and are full time!
They workamp at Coyote now,
so they can be near their daughter's house,
and their two granddaughters.

I sat by the pool in the 100 degree temperature :-(
Unfortunately I didn't have my suit with me!

I've gotten to do lunch with my son,
and yesterday my Mom and I went to
our favorite place, Phil's
with a friend from church.

Mom has a few more doctor appointments this week,
and I'm making sure she's remembering things.
It's been nice taking care of her :-)

However, I'm going to be so happy not to have to sleep on this anymore:


  1. Yeah for mom and whoopee we get to Custer on Aug 4th so we get to meet.) We'll contact ya after we get settled in.
    Safe travels R&W

  2. We are so happy to hear your mom is doing travels and hope you find some great work camping job!

  3. Glad to hear your mom is doing so well. Really a shame you cannot find something out there. Boy it must be a popular volunteer spot. Nice to see your son I know. Safe trip home. I know you'll be happy to see George and your own bed.

  4. So happy to hear your mm is doing better. It has to be comforting knowing she has a great support network. Safe travels back 'home', I am sure George needs some TLC! Good luck on the job search....there is always Amazon:)

  5. I'm glad to hear she's doing better. I'm sure George will be happy to see you.

  6. I'm glad to hear she's doing better. I'm sure George will be happy to see you.

  7. Good news all around (except no swim suit by the pool). I'm with you, that bed doesn't look too comfortable, however your toes look pretty with that color on your nails. ;c)

  8. So glad your mom is doing much better and you'll soon be back home with George. Yay!!
