We originally planned to explore St. Simons Island today but I slept late and the morning was foggy.  We were very slow getting mobile and ended up using today as a 'chore day' - the next two weeks promise to be a very busy time.  Don solved the TV cable issue today - the satellite and cable hook-ups were reversed.  The Wifi was working so I got some work done on the blog.  Not having reliable internet connectivity is proving to be a hassle and limiting our ability to stay in touch with people.
This year's blog is going to be a little different from last year's, in that we are experiencing a need to document 'days', not just highlights.  We find that, while on the road, we are frequently checking to see what day of the week it is and documenting the days helps us keep track of time!  It is also a way for us to maintain an electronic scrapbook of our travels.  Moving from place to place frequently results in memories of places running together and the hard copy books that I prepared last year would just be too heavy to carry with us!   For our readers who find this too much detail, please bear with us and just check in periodically when you can scan for what interest you.
Friday marked our first two weeks travelling and we have to say that we are settling into the routines rather easily although we are both still experiencing some 'withdrawal' from the busyness and demands of our lives back in Almonte.  At one point Don got caught trying to build an itinerary in his calendar - something that we almost immediately upset with plans to stay longer in the next stop!  Diane is still moving things around, trying to find the most convenient place to store things and seeking things that we don't need to carry with us.  So far we are concentrating on the coach interior - and the things we use every day.  With the weather staying so cool we can't even pack our heavier clothing away!  The layout of our living space is proving to be quite good and the routines of set-up and knock-down go smoothly.  We are both concerned with the rapid decline in the condition of our Mothers and other family members and are staying in frequent contact with our families.  Being away raises mixed emotions about some of the trade-offs we are making but does not change our need to start this journey now.
