+ my Route 66 trip, September 2009

 

 

This year ... I'm finally heading "solo" to the northwest US, starting with stops in PA and along parts of Route 66 ... a LONG haul in ~2 weeks!

 

If you're interested in meeting up along the way, please let me know ... it is always cool to meet new people and see old friends.

 

 

My regrets include...

...no time to stop at RT 66 places in Arizona & southern California, and

...not enough time to spend in the northwest US.

 

HOWEVER:

I can always return to those and other areas in future years ... and I have great memories of the northwest US during family road trips in 1985 and 1991 (3 pics below)....

After a frustrating/nerve-wracking week (death of a good friend and dealing with my primary care doctor and cardiologist), this road trip IS A GO!

 

The CT Scan (heart/chest) ordered by my cardiologist CAN wait until July, AFTER my road trip! The test (for which I have to take pre-meds due to my kidney issues) was originally scheduled for October, but after my EGD on June 3, this was moved to "ASAP" status..... My May 2011 cardiology checkup revealed I have an enlarged heart and am now pacemaker dependent...along with issues starting to develop with my pig's valve (installed January 6, 2003)....

 

 

 

I hope to see MANY of you along the way. The best way to reach me now (since I do not know when I'll have online access during the trip) is my cell phone ... call or text (preferably CALL)...:

847-

337-

9897

 

 

My rental is a black 2011 DODGE CHARGER!!!
