I am dying

I just signed up to the IRV2 site recently and now am announcing that I won't be realizing my wife and I's bucket list dream of buying and driving an rv across the wonderful country we live in.
So many people wait too long to enjoy their lifelong dream then wind up like me, I am dying with esophageal cancer.
I am, goodbye folks .........................

I first watched the Bucket List a few months ago. I hadn't seen it, but noticed it on my movie hard drive, so watched it. It's about a couple of guys who get cancer, then do all the things they've been wanting to do because they don't have long left. If you've actually admitted defeat and are just waiting for the grim reaper, you're in the same place they were in. They took care of their bucket list. Why can't you?


Have you seen the movie? It's actually pretty good. Might want to give it a watch.

Dave, be assured of our prayers for you and your family. Enjoy each day as if its the last.

Friend of mine at church was diagnosed with same condition - stage 4 - last year. Had surgery and is doing fine though he now is learning to use the hand held voice box.

RECOMMENDATION: Why not look at renting a MH and taking your wife on an extended trip. Not the same as owning your own but its cheaper and you can see a lot of country.

Best wishes - Richard

I'm sorry to hear this, take a car trip, stay in cabins in campgrounds and state parks. Much easier to drive a car when your not 100% than a 40 foot Rv. Or rent a Class C when you recover.

Best wishes !!
