It's hard to believe that just a little over a year ago I was on an awesome retirement journey from Arizona to Wisconsin to Lake Tahoe and many, many places in between. I was camping, triking, hiking, and touristing. And now I'm preparing for an unwanted journey to an unknown land with an unknown outcome. I've often, throughout my life, ventured to envision what my life would be like a year in advance. I never had the vision right and my vision a year prior to this date was no different. The next several months will prove to be at the minimum, interesting and I intend to log this challenging trip on this website. God, please give me the strength to endure the challenges I am about to face.
