I forgot to post a picture of Joe and I on our ride to California.
so here it is. It was a fun ride Joe.
As any of our friends that have an RV know, that when you drive a home on wheels there is always something that needs to be fixed, no mater if it's new or older. Anyway in July we went to the factory in Nappanee, IN to have some things fixed. While there we made some new friends that we went to breakfast with one day. One of the things we love best about RVing is the people we meet and get to know.
Gary, Nancy, Dietmer, Holly, Sandy and Dave.
In August Joe, Glen and I went to Canada to fish with friends, Bob, Bruce and Russ. We had a good time fishing and caught lots to eat and bring home.

Now for some bad news. On Wednesday of the week I (Dave) went in for an MRI and found that I have a Brain Tumor. On Friday I went to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN to get an opinion.
It was determined that the tumor is glioblastoma, high grade and is not curable. Th good thing is that it's in the right Temporal lobe. This is an area that if you have seizures they can remove a large portion of the brain with minimum of effect. So that turns out to be a good thing.
I will be having surgery on Thursday at the Mayo Clinic. I feel real good about the doctors doing the surgery and the follow up care I will be receiving, which will be radiation and chemotherapy. The procedure will take 5 to 6 hours so my family will be having a tough time waiting to hear how things are going. We know that we are going to have a good outcome. The only thing that might be affected is some memory. So if there is anyone out there I owe money too, GOOD LUCK.
We hope to see you all down the road.
Until next time,
Dave and Sandy
