    Hi Gerard and Laura:

    We know well that getting-nothing-done phenomenon. We are hoping the vaccines will allow a return to normalcy but are concerned virus mutations may reduce vaccine efficacy, leaving us in a perma-mask keep-your-distance state.

    For 2021 we have planned one big trip--to Yellowstone National Park mid-August--and one small trip--to Suttle Lake, Oregon for July 4th--both with extended family. Beyond that who knows. Our middle son and his family were unable to visit us this past holiday season, so we are thinking we might skip part of next winter with an extended trip to visit them in Southern California and to tour the extreme south desert SW Jan and Feb 2022. This would be our first foray into something resembling snowbirding.

    If you make it out our way stop by.

    Dave and Susan

    Wow. When there’s nothing to do you can be sure that nothing gets done. I haven’t been on the forum in so long i only now saw your reply to my message from last Sept. we’re so glad the Susan is out of the rat race. We could tell that she was not enjoying it back in ‘17. I have not wet a line in 2020. Last fish caught was in Wyoming in 2019 on Grey’s River. That spot has put a hook in my mouth too. I will be back. Just don’t know when. We’re in lockdown here with no unnecessary travel allowed. Trouble is that non compliance is not being discouraged enough. When that clears up and if Y’all don’t spiral down into a civil war we will be back.
    Love and Happy New year to you from Laura and me.

    Hi Gerard and Laura:

    We are good. The creek at the back of our lot is the county line separating Marion County and Clackamas County, so we were pretty confused by conflicting evac orders from the two counties.

    After arriving at our evac location--Susan's sister's small farm, I realized Marion County had us as a Level 2, so the next morning we went back home despite our power being out.

    The smoke was horrendous and persisted for 8 days. With no sunlight reaching the ground, each day was colder than the previous--a 'nuclear winter'. Weather is nice now, but the maple trees are like it is 25 Oct.

    The kids did finish the trailer and we celebrated with a trailer trip to our mutual favorite campground.

    Susan did re-retire. She is so thankful to not be practicing. The surgical/trauma ICU she worked in became a Covid unit because they had Ecmo and vents.

    Other than the one little camping trip, we've gone nowhere.

    Thanks for thinking of us.

    Dave and Susan

    Hi, we have been thinking about you and Susan with all of the fires out there. How are you getting along? Are you okay? Has the added stress of covid pushed Sue into retirement? We have spent the summer close to home as travel restrictions limited our options.
    Our son got married in July and we could not attend except over ZOOM. Cecilia’s parents were also unable to attend. There were only 6 persons present, the minister and his wife, the bridal pair and 2 witnesses. Plans are to do it over with more pomp and circumstance when the pandemic is over. We’ve been doing home improvements and gardening to pass the time. The Argosy has a new paint job, done professionally this time. She’s all dressed up and nowhere to go. Did your kids finish the restoration job on your old trailer?
    Gotta go
    Stay healthy
    Gerard and Laura
