Thanks for posting the update. There's been several RV-Dreamers with loss and health problems this year. Thanks to you we're following our dream, sometimes money isn't everything if you want it bad enough, it will work out.

Our prayers go out to Robyn and Tim.

What a sad story about Tim and Robyn. Our hearts go out to them. Equally sad and unfortunate stories related to people I knew are what got us to go for our dream. So I couldn't agree more. Find a way. Do it now.

Howard, Thank you for sharing Tim's story and his words. We will keep them in our thoughts and prayers. Tim's advice is so very important and even though we know it, this makes it so very real. Each day is a gift and we don't know what tomorrow will bring. I hope that they have friends and family nearby to support them.

Our hearts go out to Tim & Robyn,and we say "keep fighting".

Heard Tim's message back in 2003, just after my husband went thru physical therapy for the second time to learn to walk and talk again after surviving a 3rd stroke.

We had talked about fulltiming in the past, so a few months after he was done with his physical therapy, I contacted a realtor and we sold the house in 32 days.

My husband was nervous about traveling far away from his doctors, but I arranged with them to consult with any doctors we may need to see on the road. We carry copies his full medical history with us including MRI's. Over the last couple of years, we have made a couple of trips back to NC to tweak a few medical issues that came up. It has all worked out well and we found a doctor in Arizona that will collaborate with our east coast doctors. My husband feels at ease that if he needs treatment, he will find the resources.

We are so glad that we decided to follow our dreams of fulltiming. Some of our friends thought we were nuts to sell our new house. My answer to our friends was that I chose my husband over the house. I wanted us to be able to enjoy the beauty of our wonderful country, and spend quality time together. We are doing just that, living every day to its fullest. We feel so much at peace, and are closer to each other than ever before.

I have been following your blog for quite a while, and had to comment on Tim's story. I am an elder law attorney and know the author of the elderlawanswers site well. Tim must consult an elder law attorney in his home state. There is a national organization, www.naela.org, which provides a nation-wide listing. My thoughts and prayers are with them.

As an FYI, the waybackmachine on http://www.archive.org has been crawling websites since 1996 and often has duplicate versions of websites long since gone.

I did check there for your "lost boys and girls" content but, unfortunately, only a few of your earlier website pages were saved. The rest since then have been skipped, perhaps because someone put a robot.txt file on the site to block crawlers.

I have found this a very useful site on occasions when someone has an "oops" moment and loses web pages or content.
