Coming Back to Life

Well, it has been a while since the last post. We are now in the process of packing for our next adventure back in Sedona. I've had such positive feedback on the blog that I'll do it again. I had no idea so many friends and relatives were following our adventures and antics.
This year we have rented a place from 2/15 to 5/15 so we can skip a bit of the Sedona "winter" and be there for a bit of the warmer weather in May. We leave Walpole on the day after the Super Bowl. We would have liked to watch the Patriots play but, alas, wait til next year. We'll stop in NJ to visit Judy's cousin Jim and family. Last year we saw them in Scranton where young Jim goes to college. From NJ we head back to Charlotte to visit the Hathaways, Curt, Terry, Kaleigh and Kelsey. We'll only spend one night there as we are anxious to get to our final destination. Curt will come with us for a week and share the driving. That will allow us to go a little further each day and keep it to 3 nights.
This year we've made a couple of changes/additions to augment our adventures. First, we upgraded the Jeep. We bought our 3rd "last" Jeep. Our off-roading may not be as harrowing as we upgraded to the Rubicon, the ultimate Jeep off-road vehicle. Also, this year we will finally try Geo-caching. Geo-caching is from the Greek for Geo (compact car) and caching (exchange something for money). So we bought a hand held GPS and will look for stuff as we abandon our vehicle and walk in the wilderness. We were set to try this before Judy broke her leg a few years ago. Should be fun. Check it out at www.geocaching.com.

Well, that's it for now. Stay tuned for upcoming posts.
