I was diagnosed with a terminal illness three years ago (more on that in other stories).
I decided to buy a motor home and go on some adventures. Last year I went to California (where I live), Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Utah, and Nevada. This year I have gone or am going to Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, Kentucky, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming.
I am going to keep it up as long as possible. Next year plans are to go to Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa, South Dakota, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada.
In 2011 I plan on completing the remainder of the 50 states. Hopefully I can do it! I was given a five year window of good health.
