Ch Ch Ch Changes

Well forget the northern road right now. That has been moved to the trip back. Right now it looks like we are taking the middle road, or as the rest of the country calls it, 70. All this is still very tentative with a CT scan scheduled for the end of next week but we are starting to plan the map. Looks like a visit to our friend in Missouri (or misery as we like to call it) is first up. Hoping to include a night out to hear  The Morleys  http://themorleysmusic.com a great St Louis area band. We will have to see how the scheduling goes. After that it is westward to The Arches National Park. This is one on my bucket list. My husband has outlived the average life span of someone with this disease by at least  4 times. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining but  we have been to many of his stops 2 or 3 times. That doesn't count Vegas ,which I think has been 10. I decided this spring that its time for us to travel to some of my bucket list items. This park is one of them. Then of course its off to Vegas hopefully for the 4th of July. That should be crazy but fun. We will eventually end up at Lake Almanor in California and then see what happens from there. Hoping for Napa and Sonoma but we will see how long the bed and breakfast (AKA my husband's niece and fam) can handle us. The ride out should be part of the adventure because we have never taken 70 across the country. Some of it will be retracing Clark (not Lewis and) Griswald's path which will be entertaining. Can't wait to be on the road! As we are telling family and friends " if the CT scan is good, we will be leaving end of June and if the CT scan is bad, we will be leaving the end of June.
