Change in plans

Change in plans

One of things you have to be flexible on is your plans, things are going to happen around you with family and friends that you want to try and help out.  Since we are retired, it is a little easier to say, let’s go here and see what we can do to help out when things happen.  This year we have mostly stuck to our main plans with some minor tweaks as we traveled up the west coast into Canada….
