Replacement Mode

We have been in replacement mode since we retired. I foolishly thought that since we had everything we needed and it was in good repair, we would not have many major purchases after we retired. Not so, we have replaced everything in the last 10 years.

Our bodies are also in need of replacement. Dorothy continues downhill with her legs. It will end where she will not be able to walk. Her doctor told her that well over 10 years back. I started using a CPAP in April and it was a miracle. My energy level was reset back a decade. I no longer was falling asleep at 5PM. I could exercise, hike, etc. After four months the miracle went away. While my sleep apea is under control, I am back to struggling to stay awake after 7PM. I have had all sorts of tests. Three doctors have no clue what the problem could be.

After over two years, I have changed the masthead picture. Still like the old one, but this one taken in the Bighorns Mountains interests me also.

Some 2016 campsites in review. Ones where we had the place to ourselves. Nothing but horizon.
