I have been enjoying visiting blogs and decided to start my own, even though I don't know what I am doing or if anyone will even be interested in reading what I have to say. I am a 50 year old management consultant who has been married to the the love of my life for 30 years and have two grown daughters and a son-in-law who we are very proud of. We are blessed to live in Scottsdale Arizona and are enjoying getting out and experiencing it in our RV! Thanks for stopping by our blog and please consider joining us, who knows where we will go...Kevin & Tracy.

The Big C!

Well as many of you know, I treated myself to a physical exam shortly after my 50th Birthday.  Many of you who are reading this blog  know that when you reach half a century, they reward you with a Colonoscopy to recognize your great accomplishment.

Mine is scheduled for this Friday and I will start the process of preparing for my exam tomorrow evening.  The gallon of wonderful prescription liquid is chilling in the refrigerator like a fine wine, along with my jello and Vitamin Water, which will be my meal replacements along with chicken broth for the next two days.

Scheduling of this wonderful event could not have been better since March was National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month and as a result, every other commercial on the radio had to do with the importance of going through this process.

I'm sure that I will be rather busy starting at 6:00pm tomorrow night, but will certainly let you know how things went Friday evening.

With that, I will wish you all well and hope that your weekend will be more enjoyable than mine! Take care and be safe out there.


  1. I procrastinated but finally had my first C last year at the age of 63. As I'm sure you've heard, the prep is the worse part, but I survived as I'm sure you will too:o)

  2. The benefits of this procedure out weigh the discomfort of the prep. The actual event will last only about 15 min. The best part is that you won't remember it. Good Luck

  3. Hope all went well with your colonoscopy. Just found your blog after you commented on ours. We really like the area around Phoenix, in fact it's on our list of one of the places we might settle down at if we ever stop fulltiming, at least during the winter! My advice for you about the future and fulltime RVing is retire as early as you possibly can, and just do it. You never know what the future holds, and we figure the worst thing that could happen is we have to go back to work one day.

  4. Thanks for all of the well wishes...everything went well and I am glad that it is done!
