What do you do when you're an adventurous homebody? This.

Hi all. Remember me? I'm the one that has taken a week to figure out how to put a handle on my new-to-me 2005 17' Escape trailer. Thanks to the help I received here, I will be tackling this first mod soon. But that's not why I'm here today.

I've started a blog for sharing my full-timing life on the road. It should be good for some laughs since I have no idea what I'm doing. But, that's part of the fun for me. To learn along the way, and share the excitement and bloopers with others.

Thank you for sharing your blog spot. I know there are many of us who will be following you and waiting to hear how it is being on the road full time in an Escape. Safe travels!

Oh, almost forgot to mention that Australian friends of ours used this app http://trackmytour.com/ to track their five month journey around the States last year. Maybe there's something like it you can use for your blog.

Thanks for the kind words, and especially for the trackmytour link! I was thinking about how I could show my journey in map form for my "The Where" tab. I'll definitely check it out and see if I can add it to my blog. Yay!

And we have very good friends in Tucson whom we are planning on visiting while we're camping in the Spring. If you're around, I'll send you a private message and perhaps we can meet up .... unless you're camping in the hinterlands.

Please do message me when you come to town. It would be great to meet up. Not sure if I will have left on my adventure yet. I'm looking at the end of March, but that could change.

I thought the next update I’d make to my blog would be to share all the wonderful modifications and renovations being made to “Sarandipity”, my tiny rv.

Then last month life put a huge speed-bump in my way called leukemia. My best laid plans have been postponed for a while as cancer and I have a little talk. In order for me to get on the road, I need to send him on his way first.

So, for a little while, I’ll use my blog to share the unexpected cancer journey I’m on; the detour that life has presented. I have not given up on my goal to hit the road and share my experiences, so sprinkled in among my leukemia story, will be updates on my “Sarandipity” travel preparations.

And so the story begins:

“I’m back.” | Sarandipity Travels

If you'd like to follow along you can hit the "Follow" button on the lower right hand side of the blog and it'll send you an email when I've made a new post.

I'll see my fellow Escapee's on the road soon.

So sorry you are having to deal with this 'bump' as you call it. Keep up your spirits and your hope...there are great treatments out there and many cancers are now more like chronic conditions to be dealt with and lived with. As a survivor of Non Hodgkins Lymphoma I can tell you that the path can be tough at times but just hang in there and keep you great adventure plans as your goal to get you through it. Best wishes.

Keep your plans and dreams and continue to move forward. Your mental attitude will be the best weapon you have against this. You bought a trailer and you are going to use it a lot. Loren

Sara I'm sitting here just don't know what to say. Hopefully I won't say the wrong thing. It's heartbreaking to to hear of this development. I only know you through this forum and now your blog but I feel that connection. Please know that I am sending positive thoughts and energy your way. I love what you've written so far and very much want to see a happy ending to this story. Stay strong, my friend.
