So sorry, Dave. Please make a big effort to be good to yourself in this rough time. Grief just has a way of taking over and you sometimes just have to follow along with it.

-Steve

Dave,

Dana let me know to look up this thread since I haven't been following things like I used to. So, first, thanks Dana for letting me know.

In such times, we look for something significant to say, but are usually unable to come up with much. I've experienced a lot of losses in my life, but the one I never have experienced is losing a spouse like you have. I think I'd be completely lost in my feelings for a while because I'd lost my best friend ever; you seem to be doing better than I would.

My thoughts are with you. I think the new Airstream MH may not be ready for a while, but if you can get on the road, go for it. Sometimes a change of scene is good for you.

If you can post on this thread your trip (road trip and personal trip), so much the better. Keeping connected is a good thing in such times.

Gene

Picture of Heather and youngest GD Caylee. This was the last time Heather was able to be with Caylee alone without her MOM. Heather was is a lot of pain but always a smile for the camera. Caylee is going to Jammi Day at school and this shot is at MD's around 8AM.

Heather has her favourite AIRSTREAM pullover on that she got at JC in 2009.

My thoughts and prayers are with you. I have some understanding of your pain as I lost my oldest son less than a year ago. While I do not understand much about life, I do try to be grateful to the God of my understanding, for every day I am given of this most precious gift.

Heather and I had planned to be in Legal, Alberta, for our good friends 50th wedding anniversary celebration on July 4th-5th-6th. All those plans we had to be together and enjoying the retirement that we worked so hard for.
Now, I am at a loss to find any direction for the future??? The Alberta trip is cancelled, next years planned Yukon, and the Newfoundland trip in 2016 are all now a wash. Maybe its time to change course and give up this beautiful road machine????????????????

Our Clipper had not been started since Nov. 19th last year. With all that has happened, I expected more grief late this afternoon when I decided to de-winterize the unit and test drive it for, what will be now, a summer of local camping with my Granddaughter Caylee and other extended family.

As each step was taken to de-winterize and pretrip the CLIPPER, I could not find one thing that needed attention. It was like I had just parked it yesterday. The Cummins started on the first turn, the Genset, the same. Tonight was the first time I felt rewarded for my efforts for some time now. It was a therapy day for sure!

Only went for LPG and fuel, stopped for supper, and took a few pictures, and got home about 10:30PM, but it sure felt good. Not as good as when my NAVIGATOR was with me, but better than sitting around the house doing paper work.

Dave

Hi, I can't think, for you, or feel your feelings, but that is one beautiful motorhome.

Thanks everyone. And Robert, I would trade as many as needed of these to get my Navigator back!

You know she'd want you to keep traveling, my wife and I have had conversations about this (shudder) topic.You're now a "sailor of the asphalt sea". See you down the road. M & J

Dave, I think perhaps you have answered your own question when you state:

"......what will be now, a summer of local camping with my Granddaughter Caylee and other extended family."

Dave, deepest condolences on the loss of Heather.

"Maybe its time to change course and give up this beautiful road machine????????????????"
I know how disconnecting it is without your navigator beside you. Please take sometime to re-evaluate that road in life.

The Clipper looks so welcoming with its lights aglow. It sounds like your outing was indeed therapeutic; maybe those lights represent beacons of light and hope - to just keep going!

"......what will be now, a summer of local camping with my Granddaughter Caylee and other extended family."
Let this lead your way.....

Big hug,
FaN

You answered my question in the PM—I wrote before I checked the thread.

Dave, don't make any decisions like selling the MH (or any other major ones) right now. When in the first (and maybe more) stages of grief it is not a good time to make such decisions. Hanging around the island, a wonderful and beautiful place, can be as good a summer as any.

We are waiting to sell our house before we make any major trips, but I'm sure wanting to go to Newfoundland and keep thinking about Alaska. If we can sell our house in the next few months, maybe we can get in a trip to the northwest though I think I'm looking at back surgery this year sometime too. I hope we can meet on the road someday.

The MH looks great.

Gene

I'm really sorry to hear of your loss.

I don't know how I would cope without my "Nagivator"!!! (a name she took for herself from a Pickles cartoon;-)) But I know for sure she would want me to keep on Stream'n and enjoying life.

I hope you find your way soon!
