I'm really sorry for the total silence of late folks, and appreciate the growing stream of concerned emails that are coming in. I'm still in New Jersey, and have been very busy helping out my Mom in her protracted battle with cancer. Not much else is happening, and I'm not sure that she'd want any more detail than that hanging out for the entire planet to read, so I'll leave it at that. She's hanging tough though.
The photo is from a recent two-day respite along the Cheat River over in eastern West Virginia. Sure, boondocking in the east is nothing compared to what lies out west, but with a little effort, one can still do okay.
