We have packed up the necessaries and the dog and are departing on our Winter 2017 cross country trip to see the Grandson who will be one January 17th. Much has happened in the past year with lots of travel but these are my favorite trips. Camping types in the RV sites are almost always happy, rarely irritated with life, and no one ever discusses politics. This will be a respite from the tiresome media drone and seeing friends and relatives who are in either deep mourning or giddy about the prospects of a new President and who in their boastful and obnoxious manner erroneously claim some foreknowledge of what will be happening.
I will be blissfully absorbing the visuals and interacting with the real America where most folks mind their own business, go to work, and attempt to enjoy life.
