Tomorrow we leave our site at Comlara County Park and move to Bo Wood COE to begin our travel to Arizona for the winter. Dad continues to be stable and actually ate a bit more tonight. He still has some confusion but told me not to worry about him. Of course I told that I DO worry about him and he said he worries about me. He told me he is going to give "this place" a try for a while and he can close the book when he wants to. So difficult to see him like this but I have to let things work them selves out. Like my brother told me the other night. There's nothing that we or I can do. So off we go tomorrow afternoon to begin our adventure. A somewhat bittersweet beginning but a beginning all the same. We have 2 weeks to make our way to AZ and the RV park for our reservation on Nov 1.
Looking forward to seeing our son in Mesa and his house. Looking forward to warmer weather and new surroundings. My brother will keep me posted on Dad's health and we will be returning in a couple of months for the holidays.

That gives us a couple of nights at each location. Of course, like with all fulltime RV plans our itinerary is made in "Jell-O".
We will miss our family, our friends but not so much Illinois. :-)
