Some of you may remember: I purchased a used Escape (17b) in the summer with the plan to go full time in March of 2016. Well, best laid plans... I was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of leukemia in October and I've been fighting this new battle since then.

The good news is: I'm now in REMISSION!

I'll need to continue my chemo for another 8 months, to keep the cancer from coming back, but oh, what a glorious word "remission" is. My prognosis for a full cure is excellent.

Even though my launch date for going full-time has been pushed back, I'm still working on the egg to get it ready. It gives me something wonderful to look forward to.

I started a blog back in Aug. called Sarandipity Travels to document the process of getting ready to go on the road, and then to share my travels and photography. It's morphed into a platform for also sharing my cancer story. If anyone would like to read about my travel plans, or my journey through leukemia, here's the link:

I hope to meet many of you down the road. Late 2016 looks like a good time to start attending rallies. Until then...
We are so happy for you! God bless.

Great news, I'm sure you will be sleeping better- hope you have great Holidays. Once you start full timing, if you make it up this way ( we live in Nova Scotia) you'll have to look us up.
