All of our Impatien flowers and other growing things from Guava Gardens balcony, now must go into Twayler for the ride north to Lone Wolf Colony RV Park. This was not a hard nor difficult job for Tioga George when he and Little Mavicita [camera] produced the video:
"Mr. Sunny Tilts His panels."
The year that video was produced, Tioga George was able to stand on MsTioga's roof without any trouble at all. He was not concerned about the danger from being up high. That was then. Now is now.
Tioga George, now at this time of his life, is in real danger just walking around on flat pavement. Close attention must be paid, all the time. This is NO joke! Just yesterday afternoon, Tioga fell down while attempting to move some Impatien flowers. Two of Bobby Combs mechanics came rushing over to help Tioga. The two were very worried. "Maybe this old guy is having a heart attack", they may have been wondering.
But no. Tioga just fell down. Was not hurt a bit. One of the helping mechanics offered a hand to Tioga in order for him to get on his feet again. But Tioga knows from experience, that he must get up from the ground by rolling over in a hands-and-legs on the ground position. Then rise up. Only way.
8am - Everything properly stowed
Finished stowing everything inside Twayler, or inside her gigantic pass thru cabinet. One whole hour before Joshua our towing man arrives with his truck.
George, Twayler & Honda just after stowing everything
We bought 20 Office Depot packing boxes for the giant move
This is all that's left after unpacking
9am - This morning The Tioga RV Team is
heading out. First time since the fateful day of March 15, 2014 that we all RVeed together!
Our towing driver is Joshua who was recommended by our Bobby Combs RV Center sales person, Darryl. Joshua phoned us yesterday to confirm that he would arrive at Bobby Combs at 9am. He will hook up Twayler to his truck. Then, we all will be on our way north to Lone Wolf Colony Health Ranch.
Lone Wolf is an RV park on the eastern side of the Town of Apple Valley, California [link]. We found this Lone Wolf RV Park with the help of the Escapee California RV Park directory. A lot of good help in that book too!
Miss Twayler - On the road!
2pm - Arrived at Lone Wolf
Joshua towing Miss Twayler and myself driving Little Honda FIT drove non-stop to Lone Wolf. This 5-hour trip is a record for me.
Maybe you are aware, that I've had a bad sleeping problem since I was about 13-years old. Lack of sleep has plagued me all of my life. Stopped my college plans. How does a student go to classes and be successful being asleep?
I have fallen asleep leaning against a wall standing up. I fell asleep while driving a very small Harley-Davideson, 125cc motor cycle. Yes! I did! Just before the entrance to Death Valley. That was 1953. I was 16 years old.
Now, here's the thing. Somehow, the challenges that I faced turned into a miracle for me. The sleep problems. My getting along with people problems [Do you know about my people problems?]. I would write about those. But only if Readers seem interested. The Team does not a bunch bored Readers!
I'm labeling these challenges as miracles for me, because I was forced to address them in a unique method of self-therapy. A psychiatrist who I was seeing during the late 1990s told me:
"I've read about successful self-psychiatric therapy. But it is extremely rare. Nobody in my profession that I know, has ever met one."
Pretty cool, huh?
Setting up our garden. Tiny waterfall too!
