Glad the new venture has been working out so well. Safe travels! Glad to hear the new job is working out so well for you. Last time we met you were still wondering. I just signed a 3 month contract to go back to Durant, OK, where we were last winter so hopefully we can get together again, possibly when you go from KS to TX.
Loved the summary and pictures. Glad the new venture is working and looking forward to those upcoming baby pics! Great recap and fun to revisit people and places.
Great friendships, beautiful locations and family. You have it balanced quite nicely. Anxious to see what the next year has in store. Congratulations on your 4 years, so many memories created, so many interesting places and so many great friends! Looking forward to your arrival in Kansas and will do my best to see you in Topeka if you all are still up for it. Thanks Mark! We are on our way — looking forward to meeting up with you and Karen! Wonderful post and I loved loved the pictures. If you judge your life by the images …as I often do…what a huge success.
I also love how much time you spent with friends and lots of different ones! Wow, what a great summary. Very encouraging to anyone considering travelling full time. As your photos show, it turns out that a huge enjoyable of travelling is the people you meet. We have surely felt that way. We are especially amazed at the number of folks that you run into multiple times. Wishing you continued success. Part of the time spent with friends was completely coincidental — some was by design — either way — we love our RV family!

McKinley, whose brother William would that year be elected governor of Ohio and, four years afterward, president of the United -States. In Independence, Missouri, her grandfather John B. Williams had purchased a Conestoga wagon and then set out in on the Oregon Trail with his wife, Lucinda, a son, and three daughters.
Each of John B. Lizzie was born in in Bodega Township, near the Russian River, in redwood country. Five years later, her parents were dead. Lizzie was raised by an aunt and sent to school; as an adult, she journeyed south to San Francisco. Another aunt moved north, settling in Oregon, then journeyed farther still, not stopping until her family reached the salmon fisheries in Homer, Alaska, where they started a -cannery. Lizzie described what happened one fall afternoon at the Fernandez warehouse.
I looked up at the cowboy and met a pair of pale blue eyes under a battered broad-brimmed hat. He pulled off the hat and held it in his -hand. Four hundred bushels of wheat, two hundred hay. I handed him the money, then asked him to sign his name to the -receipt. Within minutes, he was back inside. For Coyote, Lizzie, who read -En-glish novels purely for enjoyment, represented a sophistication he had never before encountered.
After their marriage, the couple moved to the El Sobrante ranch that Coyote was now running for his mother. When Lizzie became pregnant, Rita refused to even discuss hiring a midwife to help with the delivery. Lizzie would give birth alone, as Rita had seven times before -her.

So in solitude Lizzie delivered her child, a son, whom she and Coyote named Earl. Lizzie cut and knotted the umbilical cord herself, then tended to the newborn without help, as Rita had done. Lizzie birthed Milfred alone as -well. A third child, Albert, was born on Christmas Eve, , while Coyote was in Nevada selling horses at a saddle stock auction. Albert was a month premature and there were immediate problems. The baby had entered the birth canal feetfirst, and midway through the delivery his arms and head became trapped.
After the baby was out, Lizzie began to bleed profusely.
The curse of durability
She feared she might faint from loss of blood. Lizzie flailed about for something she could use to tie off the umbilical cord. All that was available was a white bib lying on the table, which Milfred had worn when Lizzie fed him breakfast that morning. She ripped off the strings, used them to tie off the cord, then stanched her own -bleeding.
Days later, Albert grew ill. Rita had refused to call a doctor. Albert, it was later determined, had contracted an infection from the contaminated bib strings. Lizzie had carried her child for nine months, and now he was dead by her own hand. Lizzie met him at the door. She told him his son had already been born and was already buried. Then she issued an ultimatum.
They stopped at Rodeo, a dusty backwater about three miles up the coast where land was cheap. Rita remained in Pinole on her acres of ranchland, stubborn and uncompromising. In , the state of California appropriated all but fifteen acres of her land under eminent domain to make way for the San Pablo Dam Reservoir. Rita fought the order in court, but the state prevailed. She kept that vow until the day she -died. A doctor helped with each delivery. Then, on November 26, , the last of their children was born. They named him Vernon -Louis.
