Drum roll please!  I finally made it to 170's!  woo hooooooo!  Turns out my glucose was too low!  I have permission to add carbs. LOL  I did and the weight started dropping again.  Who knew?!?  I've lost 5 lbs in 8 days.

I can't believe it's been so long since my last update.  We've been busy with the Coast Guard and did a county wide emergency drill with our ham radios, relaying messages from the medical center to the county emergency operations center.  We have another drill in July trying to get everyone prepared in case of an emergency. 

We did our first racewalk race and Chris took the bronze in his age group.  We continue to enjoy racewalking.  I did a PR but I'm still pretty slow compared to others.  At least I didn't come in last this time.

I’ve been having fun learning chain maille.  I’ve even had someone request a bracelet in gold.  I’m ordering the links tomorrow to be delivered to my folks so they’ll be there when we get there. 

I’ve also been planning our trip in the RV.  We’re heading for Tombstone, AZ to have a new photo done (hopefully in the same costume as my original one here) then to Carlsbad Caverns to see the bats flying out of the caves at night (I’ve always wanted to see that).  We’ll head north east to Kansas and Nebraska to see friends then on to South Dakots to see Mount Rushmore, the Crazy Horse monument, a wild mustang ranch, a mammoth dig, Toadstool Park in the badlands (where rocks look like mushrooms from erosion), Fort Robinson Park to see buffalo, then wind our way home.

Have a great spring!  I probably won’t have internet very often until June.
