  • Stopped by to tske a look. I had a plan once to retire and see the U.S. from an RV with my dogs. The first problem was that one of my dogs had terrible motion sickness. Next, I lost so much of my vision that I can’t drive any more. Lastly, both of my dogs died, and I’m still working. Time to go to Plan B.

  • Hi Dot,

    I hope that’ll you’ll find a plan B that will work for you.

    There are certainly a lot of neat places in the US and we’ve only been able to scratch the surface.
