It’s amazing how fast life hurdles into high gear and reality sets in. Sunday we got home from our trip up the Oregon coast and Monday found me at the dermatologist getting several “spots” cut and burned off…because they were precancerous. I’d gotten a small burn on my neck while driving last week but these were from years of past damage. I always a wear a high SPF sunscreen, hats or use sun umbrellas. Yet precancerous lesions keep showing up…regularly. These visits are simply part of my regular maintenance now. Like going to the dentist every 6 months. I should have worn a wider brimmed hat while driving 🙁
My skin is fragile. So having things cut or burned off usually leaves permanent scars or depigmented, white spots. So fun. My misspent youth (lack of sunscreen) doesn’t make it more palatable.
Seeing Mt Shasta always signals home to us. We were happy to see lots of snow on it this year.
Our trip up the Oregon coast last week was glorious! So picturesque. We checked out trailers, 5th wheels and Class A motor home options for “life on the road”. I’d want to live in something that’s roomy enough to hold my stuff and not feel like a sardine can. Our goal is to find a way to test the lifestyle, without a huge commitment. The truth is we didn’t find anything that fit what we needed. I know me, and a trailer with a 6″ closet pole won’t cut it. Storage space is critical, but weight and length matter too.
We’re at the point where a big decision must be taken in small steps. The last thing I want to do is regret our choice. Traveling the country with our little home on our back, like a turtle, is very appealing. Buy we have much more research to do and aren’t ready to pull the trigger yet.
Have you had your skin cancer check this year? Please do it!
Have a great week!
