Starting in the Middle

The following is a Public Service Announcement:

“Due to technical, personal and miscellaneous difficulties, this blog will be starting somewhere in the middle.

Based on the theory that “if it can happen, it will happen to Mick and Patti”, I don’t find this PSA the least bit surprising.

The original intent of this blog was to keep concerned family and friends in contact with us as we RV’d for the first time to Arizona, towing a vehicle and traveling with pets. Now that doesn’t sound like anything unusual. After all,  thousands of couples and families have been doing this forever, but because of the above theory your concerns were validated.

The technical difficulties resulted in having to write the trip experiences by hand and transfer it to posts here. My goal is to post at least twice a day under the title “Phase or Folly-The Beginning”, stories and pictures from the when the RV idea was born through the trip and arrival in Arizona, and “Phase or Folly-Going Forward”  starting with today’s activities as we prepare to travel back to Michigan.

In the meanime, we both want to thank our loving and supportive family and friends who followed us along the path of our newest misadventure, this crazy roadtrip. We’re grateful for your concerns, your hand wringing, your asking begging us to cancel and stay home, finally your acceptance as you shook your heads and chalked it up to “it’s just another Mick and Patti”.  We love you!

So, let’s not delay any further – allow me a few minutes to gather my notes and thoughts so I can “get this blog on the road”!!

Well, it might take just a teensie, weensie, tiny bit longer……
