Wanted to see how, if, camping would work as Alan continues treatment for APL (acute promyelocytic leukemia) for months and months. And it’s doable. We probably have to stay close to home “just in case” but in those cycles where he has no IV arsenic infusions, only oral ATRA for 2 weeks, and for those cycles with 2 weeks off, yes, it’s doable!

Sadie was so happy to be in the woods. She LOVES camping, especially because we’re not exactly roughing it.

The Wawona 6 was too big for the tent site, so had to set up in the “driveway,” but that’s good as it was next to electricity. This was NOT roughing it!

And more good news, the new showerhouse/bathroom building is DONE, and it’s BEAUTIFUL, and includes a sink for dishes, so no worries about soap and collecting grey water.

Yes, this is doable. Now, to find a park and site in the next cycle with off time!

On the shore of Lake Michigan, right next to the beach! Yeah, in the next “time off” cycle, that’ll work…
