. . . if it wasn't attached! I misplaced cell phone chargers to both phones, and also my old Minolta camera. I've searched high and low in every box and bag I've brought with me to Jeannie's, plus every time I go to the storage unit I check the boxes there. Fortunately I taped the contents on all the boxes, although at the last I may have neglected to write down an item I tossed in. I am nearly 100% sure I didn't put them in storage, so they have to be here somewhere. Now I've misplaced Lady's flea and tick meds, which I will definitely need to apply very soon in preparation for our trip.
I even tried a form of self-hypnosis I have used to help me remember where I might have put all these lost items, but I merely succeeded in putting myself to sleep. It's a very good way of bringing on sleep, by the way.
I just checked the weather for the next 10 days out, for Elko NV and Idaho Falls ID. Not that the forecast is all that reliable for 10 days out, but it gives me an idea of what to expect. I figure on camping at Elko, which will be clear and overnight temps down to about 42, but when I noted that showers are expected at Idaho Falls the day/night I should be in that area, I think I will plan on a motel stop. What I'm really hoping to find out is the expected weather for northwestern Wyoming, but I'll have to wait until sometime next week to check that.
There are many places I'd like to see on my trip, but I won't set my heart on any of them, knowing how quickly things can change. Bad weather could affect my plans, and the price of fuel has already impacted the trip I wanted to make - that and not having a camper. I don't regret getting rid of the camper though. The time comes when a person realizes that what had worked before isn't going to work now. Various factors, mainly health and eyesight, have drastically changed my wants and required me to consider my needs.
Pidge, of the Frugal Travelers, is going through much the same dilemma right now, only maybe more so, and my heart goes out to her and Don. One thing that is certain in life is that nothing is certain. I wish them the best, and the courage to make whatever decision they need to live with.
RAIN, LOTS OF RAIN!!!
