Thanks for the add

Me and my family have been camper camping for 5 years now. We started with a 1999 Forest River Cardinal pulled by a 1999 F-350 dually diesal. Our youngest daughter is graduating this spring from high school and will be attending college on a softball scholarship. Camping isn't her thing unless it's at the beach. So this past January we were at the RV show and we decided to down size to a tag along. We bought a golf cart to put in our truck bed and we are all set.
Then in June I found out at 45 I was legally blind. I had to quit my job, turn in my driver license, and now I'm still waiting on disability. I knew one day this day would come, just not this soon. I have Retinitis Pigmentosa. I inherited from my father. So me and my husband is trying to enjoy camping every chance we can while I can still see to do so. He works 2 jobs right now to pay the bills till my disability gets started. What a blessed wife I am. But we don't take for granted the simple little get aways.
I would love to visit out west before I lose my sight. Iv never seen nothing more than 300 miles past my home, lol. But at least i'v been that far, and we have enjoyed every second of the journey.

Welcome. Bummer on the eye issue. Looks like you are dealing with this in a very upbeat way and not allowing it to shadow what sight you do have left. I'm in CA so if you do make it this way wave as you pass.
