Beginning my 72nd year!
Just about the time of my 65th birthday in 2002, I was dreaming up my future as a Vagabonder-Supreme. I was sure then, that I would not live past 70. My doctor told me that I would need a heart valve replacement by age 68 because of a congenital heart defect. Drugs used to fight cancer had taken a toll. I had reduced kidney function. My muscles were degenerated by chemotherapy. I fell down a lot because my sense of balance was bad.

It was a big surprise to me that my health returned. Last week I celebrated my 71st birthday. I feel great! And as I may have mentioned to you, I have no aches, no pains. Take no medication. There are no symptoms from my heart problem. My muscles have returned to normal size. My balance is not perfect, but causes no problems.

All of this blows me away!

3PM - Mr. Datastorm having problems.
We are way out west near Punta Mita. Perhaps we may have moved outside of the SatMex5 satellite footprint. Or, there may be bad weather near the Hughes Operation Center. We have tried three times today to get online, and only succeeded once.

If you look at one of the Google Maps, you may notice that MsTioga is not close to the Pacific Ocean. The reason for this is that the real estate development along the coast in this region prevents us driving and/or parking near the water.

We did bike down to the Ocean using Mr. Trek. In the pic below you may see beach for yourself.
