Anyway, it's my one time to travel over the year, tho I can hardly say it's relaxing. It's a 750 mile drive, each way, which I do not do at leisure. Then motels and crappy food. So with my arthritis, it usually takes me several days to recover when I return.
Having said that, I do enjoy seeing several folks there that I've gotten to know over the years, and usually learn something new and interesting from Dolores.
