NOVEMBER 2003The Journal will start the week of the 24th. New maps at map will also be running shortly after that. NOVEMBER 2004The Expenses page has not been updated this year because of a couple of anomalies. Firstly we drove home for Christmas and then went on a 7-Day cruise to the Mexican Riviera in January. Our expenses went up accordingly and messed up our averages for the Daily, Weekly and Monthly reports. DECEMBER 2004The Journal is up and running after having some prob lems getting connected to publish. We apologize for the tardiness. MARCH 2005Journals are being discontinued to make room for new ones. The years of 1998 and 1999 will no longer be available MARCH 2005ATTENTION READERS OF THE JOURNAL: I have been having difficulty publishing the JOURNAL this year because I've reached my limit in the number of pages I may have on this website. Consequently, if you're reading the Journal and wish to continue, send me your e-mail address and I will send it to you as an attachment. You can be assured that I will NOT give, sell or distribute your e-mail address to any other entity. I will use it to send you the certified virus free attachment containing the weekly Journal. At the present time I have figured out a way to publish. But how long this will last OCTOBER 2005We are soon to be on the road again for this year. As usual, we will publish the "Journal" whenever it's possible, on Sunday nights or Monday mornings, or soon thereafter. With the maps now accompanying the Journals on the site, you'll notice that our routes out west are considerably different than our routes home. The reason for this is our visits to the National Parks. We'll keep you posted on our travels through the website. Check out the Where are we now map for our location this hesitated to post last year's sheets because of our 14 day absence from our schedule, but compared to this year's schedule it is now a fair representation. As of this point we are 8 days from being back on the road again. (November 28th) Our JOURNAL will be up and running in a couple of weeks. MAY 2006All the pages on the site have been updated.

We're leaving on the Saturday after Thanksgiving (Nov 26) instead of the Monday after. The first Journal entry should be published FEBRUARY 2007Our winter effectively ended today with our decision to return home to Michigan. My Mother is having some problems at home and we need to return to get her settled. It will take the rest of the winter to get things straightened out. We will take a couple of weeks to get there since we need to wait down south for the frigid weather to break before we head north. We will wait in Louisiana for that to happen and then we'll just sneak north and try to avoid OCTOBER 2007We will return to the road this year on November 25th, on the Sunday after Thanksgiving. Our Winter last year was shortened by some difficulties at home in Michigan. Having been taken care of in the Spring we will be off and running for our usual West Coast winter. Journals will follow shortly afterward. NOVEMBER 2007The expense sheet will not be posted for this past year because of the abbreviated year. We'll post 2007-08 at DECEMBER 2, 2007One week on the road and I fell and broke my leg. posted. I hesitated Publishing 2007 because it was an abbreviated year, but now it has been put in NOVEMBER 2008 We hit the road at our usual time this year and the Journal is up and running for another year. NOVEMBER 2009 We were on the road and rolling on the 29th of November this year and the Journal will be up and running by the 7th of December. We are also sending out the Newsletter in e-mails as a .pdf this year. We are hoping this will work for anyone who wants the "letter." We've already sent out a summer letter that worked quite well. DECEMBER 2009The LINKS page has been updated also. Although websites come and go quite regularly. JULY 2010 The opportunity to attend the Calgary Stampede pres- ented itself and we left on the 5th for Alberta, Canada. Friends we had met in California (Terry and Jo-Anne Bertamini) had offered to show us around while we were We also took the opportunity to visit other Canadian friends Henry and Arlene LeDuc of Rocky Mountain House while we were there.

At this point we're leaning toward California again. We will be hitting the road on the 25th and the Journal should be posted a week later on Monday the 3rd of December. DECEMBER 2012We're having all kinds of trouble with pages on this site and we're hoping that we can straighten them out. Of particular note is the "Where are we now" Map. So far it's so bad that I've just deleted it. SEPTEMBER 2013Since last January I've had a very difficult time keeping this site up to date. I was in the Hospital for 64 days with a "Flesh Eating Bacteria" that consumed most of the top of my foot. After that, we were just concerned with getting ourselves back to Michigan. Sharon had to drive the entire 2600 miles. While we were traveling the site was all messed up and I couldn't log into it. In the next few days I'll publish the rest of last year's Journal and possibly add a couple of new pages for the upcoming year. I apologize for the delay. Some of the pages have been reformulated for widescreen computers. Some pages could not be reformulated.
Our regular readers will have already noticed the changes.
Next year the Journal will also reflect these changes. Those of you who haven't upgraded to widescreen, I apologize, but I can't OCTOBER 2013 The rest of the 2013 Journal from week 10 to May has now been published and online. Sorry for the delay but when you read it you'll see why I wasn't able to finish it until now. APRIL 2014The Trip Map is now up and running. Sorry for DECEMBER 2014The Trip Map is now up and running. We are stranded in Springfield, MO getting our motorhome fixed. We will soon move on to Branson. SEPTEMBER 2016The Journal from our trip home last year is finally up and running. My entire website was inoperable for the last few months and I finally got it working again. With a "little" help from Tech Support I got the Journal up anyway. NOVEMBER 2017The Journal will be up and running on December 4th and the Trip Map has already been updated. Happy reading.
