Blanch Blanchard and her Travel CLog
The bloom has begun. Carpets of flowers covering the desert landscape. Some as tiny as an eraser head, most smaller than a quarter. What they lack in size they certainly make up for in quantity.

It is breathtaking.
Today,as I was photographing flowers, I ended up in an area with dozens of butterflies. They didn’t cooperate with me as the dogs kept chasing them off. It sure was a delightful experience!

My last day at the LTVA in Quartzite. It’s been a lovely season although we had some crummy weather. I threw an end of season pot luck, with the few folks left out here, a little over a week ago.

We even had a birthday cake for Pam and Blaine, my camp neighbors.

I spent most of the winter looking at real estate and my friends did buy a place, so it was a productive winter.

I started my journey towards moving my medical care to Arizona. I saw my new doctor in Phoenix and I liked her. I’m getting referrals to a couple of specialists and I have a complete physical in a few weeks. After 15 years of rural healthcare I’m ready for some big city care. Rural healthcare in much of this country is broken, no specialists, no doctors taking new patients, sub par care, etc. I’m looking forward to getting some quality care and advice.

Windy today, another desert blow job, but it isn’t too hot so it’s all good.

Tomorrow a new chapter begins as I move to Salome Arizona.

In May I am traveling with friends to a military base in SoCal to view some ancient petroglyphs. I’ve been trying for a few years to get on one of the tours. I finally got accepted with a friends help, passed a military background test, and have approval to tour and photograph the ancient writing. I’m beyond thrilled! I’ll be sharing those photos when they happen.

All is good and fine and groovy here. Thanks to all I camped with or visited this winter. Life is good.

I sure enjoyed camping with you Blanch, several locations this year! Please continue to keep us posted about your travels. I'm temporarily stuck in Kernville again this month but it's a pretty place to get stuck at, I guess. I got the parts to install my tiny A/C unit last month but my lazy self has yet to start the project. Maybe some fear of trying to remove a back window?

Hi Steve!
I’ve had fun camping with you and your horse as well! I’ll be traveling up the 395 corridor around June so maybe you’ll be able to visit with me again. And you and Spotty are welcome at Pam and Ed’s new place in Salome next winter, the entire two acres is fenced so Spotty can run around to his hearts delight.

Removing windows? Can’t you just install Linux? Sorry, old computer humor.

I hope you are doing well Steve, see you sooner or later trudging the road to happy destiny.

Well.....
Life on life’s terms. I’m out of the nomad business for however long this takes. I’m the new “live in help” and caregiver to my mom. She is on hospice now, after pneumonia and a collapsed lung and internal bleeding and two days ago she had a heart attack.

My trailer is parked at a friend’s property. I’m here with a small herd of dogs, at the independent living facility. I’m thankful I am available to care for her, although the neighbors are already pissed off about the dogs. -sigh- You can’t keep everyone happy.

I’ll be back to my nomad lifestyle whenever this chapter closes. For now I am a caregiver.
