Wow, your post almost made me cry.

It just reminded me of the day my dad told me he was not going to drive his truck or trailer anymore.

The firefly story reminded me of my daughter seeing them for the very first time. Her eyes were huge when she saw them for the fist time. She thought it was some trick I was pulling on her.

Two more comments:

#1. Gettng old sucks.
#2. Seeing this beautiful county makes for great memories and I need more!

You'll certainly be missed around the campfire. Don't be a stranger here, tho...

The trail is like a maze sometimes you can't get through the way you figure but have to back track and take a new path. You will still arrive in the same place only by a different route.Your family is lucky to have such a positive spirit to go through life with. May whichever path you choose be as rewarding for you as the one you've been on. Stop by and visit us once in a while. The campfire will be lit and the coffee brewing......Mike

You have a great outlook on life, so I am sure that you enjoyed your 9 years camping to the fullest! At least you have the luxury of having all those good memories, and the luxury of being able to remember both of them. I hope your health improves and you still have a lot of memories left to make.

Craigslist is a really good place to advertise while it is still free. Things usually go quickly on Craigslist. Another option that was offered and is a great one if you don't need the money... give it to your kid or grandkid so they can experience all the wonderful memories that you have experienced. Make a stipulation be that you be invited out every once in a while.

I was fortunate enough that my wife's uncle bought a new trailer and gave us a pretty good deal on his old one. If it wasn't for that, the wife may have never gotten into it as much as she has. Give the gift along!

All the best.


Please don't be sad. I am a very, very, lucky man to still be here. I am still able to enjoy much of life for whatever time I have left. I feel very blessed to be given another chance to hold those I love and laugh and cry with them over whatever life brings. As I told my cardiologist, "if this is as good as it gets, It's still beats the alternative". Yes I had to give up some things that I loved but when one door closes. another opens. I am really looking forward to enjoying every day God gives me and living it the fullest of my abilities.



To me that says it all…

You have been blessed my friend, you have learned what is the most important lessons, but so are your loved ones blessed for having the chance to ride with you through this journey we call life…

You folks are terrific, but I already knew that. I experienced my "unfortunate incident" a little more than a year ago just prior to my 57th birthday. I will miss the experience of meeting great people around the campfire but I still hold out hope that we can either rent an RV or go with the kids if they decide to try RVing at some point. I'd give our stuff to the kids but they just don't have an interest in camping. I am trying to find a way to buy a cabin in Grayland which is our favorite ocean destination.

My new favorite quote is, "The difference between agony and adventure is attitude". I'm sorry that I don't know who to attribute it to. I discovered this after my "unfortunate incident". Prior to this I was not as near a positive person that I have grown to be. The realization of the fragility of life and what is truly important in life sometimes needs a jolt to get get your attention.

I choose to embrace what I can do, not mourn over what I can't. It makes for a much better quality of life. Your comments here have touched my deeply flawed heart in a way that you can't imagine. Thank you one and all.

Man that makes me think, I'm 64. Well good luck with your health and you don't have to totally leave, check in once in a while and let us know how you're doing. After nine years I'm sure that you have some good advice to help the rest of us on occasion.
