This vacation had a bit of abrupt ending as today we decided to head for home.
Yesterday Tom did the Ruby Falls Cavern tour on his own – I wasn’t ready to venture underground again. He says it was the most beautiful cavern he has ever been in . . . and he took a few pictures to prove it.
I stayed put at the camper and did a few housecleaning chores and rested. It had been 8 days since my cave accident/injury, and I was beginning to feel that I was not coping physically as well as I should. The biggest problem was muscle spasms making it hard to relax or sleep at night, and lasting into the late morning.
This morning we made the decision to head for home (easy, 9-hour drive), and I called and made an appointment for tomorrow with my doctor. I am assuming that some physical therapy will help speed up the healing – I am convinced that nothing is seriously hurt or broken.
This decision means that we will be home for Labor Day Weekend, and for the first Ohio State Buckeye game. We’ve already made plans with Caleb and Halie to come over for a game-day huddle, which adds a very positive note to going home early!
We have plenty of fall camping left to enjoy, and I want to get in good shape for every minute of it!
We don’t go camping any more . . . we go ‘streamin’ ! The “SIlvermine and His” is our 2016 23' Airstream, and ‘streamin’ is the name we use to describe our adventures. Stream along as we document everything from weekend trips to longer summer excursions and full-blown vacations. You know what they say: if you’re not in an Airstream – you’re just camping!
