Maggie, there is another (free) app called ilife 360. When my brother moved here, we loaded it onto all our phones, so we can make sure we are where we should be. It's probably more important with people that may get lost easily, as the app lets you pinpoint location within 50 feet or so. You can check in as often as you like, and the app will update, and let everybody else know where you are. For example, right now my brother is 255 feet West of me, sitting in his house, or at least at his house.

Testing the new app.


These are my GPS coordinates:
Latitude = 41 51' 34.3855"

Longitude = -87 50' 3.3065"

This message was sent from the app Here I am.


There is a link to locate on Google Maps, but it didn't copy.

Very Belated Note of Sympathy

Hi Maggie,

I'm sorry for such a belated note of condolence on Doug's passing. I hadn't seen your earlier posts until now. Really sad to know that you lost your traveling partner on the road and in life. Although I have never met you or Doug, you were so kind in welcoming me to this forum a year ago when I bought my Airstream Interstate. Since then, I've always enjoyed coming across your posts. There was something about your RV logo picture and posts that felt so homey, and made me feel your warmth even though I have never met you.

I think it's just terrific that you and Doug were able to travel the road together the last 5 years. That is a real present that you gave to each other. Although my husband and I are too busy with 3 tween/teens and work, I too hope that we can tool about as you and Doug had. You're an inspiration to all. I think you know that Doug is still traveling with you, maybe not physically but in spirit. Thanks for allowing us to be part of your life. God bless you. Keep us posted with your new journey in life.

Thank you so much.

Up at 2am yesterday and out the door 45 minutes later for amazing sister-in-law's surgery in the Chicago burbs. Went well, thank goodness, and what they found when they got in was not as bad as feared.

Her equally amazing eldest daughter stayed the night with her. I gathered up Lily from my son and was asleep by 8pm. Sleep is good.

Good for me to be solely and completely other-focused. Another first. It felt surprisingly liberating, and gave me another of those slight shifts in a forward direction.

Going to pick up the Interstate from Peterbilt today and start getting it ready to head to Iowa for Memorial Day. I have been in and out of there this past week, and it has been okay. Like our little house, it is full of good memories and mementos of our travel. I will feel very close to Doug in there.

Warm and humid here, the new plants are thriving and the grass seed is growing. Life renewed.

Have a good day.

XO Maggie

Readying the Interstate for the first solo trip, Iowa and the gravesite over Memorial Day.

It is okay, and I'm actually looking forward to it. Son close by will check on the house and water the new plantings.

Did a little cleaning out there, moved the comforter from its former cubbie beneath one of the benches into the overhead cabinet that Doug kept his clothes in, checked the supply of toilet paper, got coffee in, etc., etc.

Will dump tomorrow the winterizing fluid flushed into the tanks today. My first solo trip to a dump station.

Picked out one of those super-hardy and drought resistant rose bushes at our favorite nursery yesterday, with blooms in deep red, to plant on his grave. Just a few tears. I will get it planted on Sunday and water again well before I leave Monday evening, then his kids/family in that area will tend to it a bit in between my visits.

Going to spend Monday night at Doug's Mom's.....96 1/2 years old, still living by herself, has now outlived two husbands and her son..... then Tuesday night with the kids and grand in Iowa City.

Lily is closely watching my attention to the Interstate, wagging her tail every time I come back inside, like "is it time to go?".

It will be strange for her, minus Grandpa. She will want to ride in the passenger seat, where I used to sit, so she can look out the front window.

I hope you have a good weekend and that getting back into the Interstate will be a healing hurdle. Glad that Lily will be there as your co-pilot. Safe travels!

Thank you.

A "healing hurdle". I like that.

It's feeling okay, and I think it will be.

As the saying goes, "You Go Girl"
Be Strong and have fun.
It seems right that your first big Interstate Outting is over Memorial Day weekend and it's doing exactly what you are doing.
It just all...fits. It just seems...right.

The "flowers" is one of the emoticons. For some reason, it does not show up all of the time.
