I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.


Thank you for stopping by. Just to let you know, I'm still blogging but have moved to Geogypsytraveler. Hope you'll follow my adventures. Just click here.

MWT – Welcome Home

01 Welcome Home sign from Mike Yarnell AZ

After a long and arduous journey back to Arizona with Mom this is what greeted me. Mike hung this sign before leaving for work almost two weeks ago.

02 Happy Birthday sign and earings from Mike Yarnell AZ

Ain’t he sweet!

I could probably write a book about the last month spent trying to help Mom and Friday moved her into a safe, comfortable private home caretaking facility. Maybe someday I’ll get around to writing more about this experience. But it will undoubtedly take me quite a while to even process it all. Plus it’s not over yet.

I fly back to South Texas Wednesday morning and have a yard sale over the weekend. Then sometime the following week begin the drive back to Arizona and ultimately return to work at Grand Canyon.

I’ll be around the cyberworld again, soon I hope.

Dealing with aging parents is rarely easy but now at least you've seen your way through much stress and come out on the other side. You are right, though - the story isn't over yet - just another page turned.

Have some fun with the yard sale!

What a nice homecoming. Wishing you all the best as you bring closure to this difficult transition for you and your mother.

Oh but that guy is a keeper, nice welcome even though he couldn't be there himself.
I'm glad that you've gotten your mom settled; hopefully the hardest part is behind you. I was fortunate, my mom cooperated with my attempts to help her, I know that that is not always the case.

How sweet and thoughtful of Mike to welcome you so warmly, Gaelyn. You have been through a traumatic time and still have to wind it all up with the sale. I pray for a safe journey for you and a peaceful result. Blessings and (((hugs))) Jo

Gaelyn, how nice of Mike to welcome you home. I hope things settle down for you soon, I can just imagine all the stress. I wish you and your Mom all the best.

You have been through a lot, to say the least. I don't think I know 1% of it.

Ageing parents are not easy to deal with. Nigel's father turns 90 next month and still lives alone. He does not want Nigel to move to France. All very difficult as we have our own life to lead also !!!!! Even more difficult as Nigel has health problems which his father (or sister in Ozz) will not even accept. Diane
