Don't bother Mike. I can lead with my good leg, and lift the other one up, not weight bearing.

This was the last morning of my trip, waking up in the van. Thanks to the foam mattres Confused donated for the van, the bed in it can easy compete with any bed in a brick and mortar house.
My trip lasted almost two months, and I enjoyed every day of it.
When I was planning for it, people called me crazy to do something like this in an old van and as an old woman, considering all the dangers etc.
As you might know, because of my mental condition inside part of the Asperger's syndromes, I do not feel certain emotions, or do not have strong feelings for them. Fear is one of the emotions I do not really have.
I have to say, that with all the nights I slept on Walmart parking lots, truck stops or rest stops, I never had a single event that was critical. Maybe that the old and cheap looking van kept possible thugs away, but I never wss bothered by anybody.

Would I do such a trip again? In a heart beat, yes, yes, yes.

In fact, if my health and Van-Gina play along, I will do a similar trip along the West Coast as soon a possible, and later on a trip along the East Coast.

These trips are wonderful adventures, and not only a conformation that I can do it, but that an old woman can do it!

Hugs

I am sorry,but I don't take photos, I am just not used to taking pictures.

But finances for s trip like that are not a real big thing. I bought the van for $1200, and invedted another $1000 into it to get Android Auto and new front wheel bearings, and my toilett and sink.
The main trip costs were gas for the vehicle.
I stayed ovrrnight either at Walmarts, truck stoops, or supervised freeway rest areas. Food cost are not much different from home.

I will be back home in latest 6 hours now, and feel a little sad that the trip is over.
If my health will continue to be good, I for sure will do a next trip similar to this one.

If you feel like doing something like this, do it and become a van dweller for a little time.
I will modify my van more, to make my van life easier.

Alice, my trip is over now. I never had any problem. I parked whenever and whenever I felt tired, nobody bothered me ever. I was not scared at all.
This absolute freedom was one of the things that made the trip feel great.

Well, it is time for another trip up north with Van-Gina. She is a little more modified now, and has some real furniture installed to be able to put stuff away in an orderly fashion. This trip Amber (my adopted daughter) will come along, because she will be my caretaker. We will leave tonight to do some lo traffic night driving, and hopefully get through Atlanta before the city wakes up.
The purpose of tis trip is to go to the Mayo clinic and have them do my SRS. I will be laying on the cutting table on Jan 21st. I have to stay up north for 3 weeks after the release from the hospital, and we will be with my friend Sandy for this time. Sandy told me, she never would have allowed me to stay at her house when I was still a man (we know each other for 32 years now), but now that I am a woman, she has no problem with having me there, actually, she enjoys it to have company. I think women bond way better than men do.

I hope that my surgery is as easy sailing as it was for Tonya and Allie. The surgeon told me he needs about 30 mins less with me, because I have a very well healed orchi already.

As you might know, I am currently in the cold tundra of Minnesota, to get a new designer vagina installed. It will be ZERO degrees tomorrow night, and accordingly, I had to change my avatar picture to show how beautiful and feminine I currently present myself to the world.
Everyone passes around here at this time of the year, because men and women look alike, and one is afraid to talk to not freeze the teeth off!

@Linde I know that you will stay warm, because the hospital has those pre-warmed blankets. I wish I could have the opportunity to drive up that way and visit with you, but I don't think I will be traveling anywhere for at least a few weeks while my wife recovers. Keep us updated.

Thank you Katie, Amber will be with me, and they allow one visitor only anyway. I hope I will be able to go online with my phone, as soon as i can start to think clear again. They told me they will keep me kind of sedated for the first 3 days, until the major pain is over. They increase my hospital stay because I decided to have the full depth procedure.
I will let you guys know.

Hugs

The Mayo Clinic has big setups in northern Florid, in Arizona, and the headquarters are in Rochester, Minnesota, pretty much up north as one can go in the lower 48 states.
The Mayo Clinic is so large, it is almost a city by itself, it has 3,800 physicians and scientists and 50,900 allied health staff.
I used to do research cooperation with some of the scientists there, and know the system pretty well.

I loved that hot air blanket. I'm sure you will be warm in the hospital Linde. Ask them if they can pump some of that warm air through the leg massagers. You'll be nice and toasty.

Hugs!
