The Possible Conclusion of Our Travels.

Filed under: 2015 — admin @ 18:12

Well, Larry and Phyllis made it to our new home, at least for this winter. We arrived Monday, Sept. 21. I apologize for not posting sooner, but I have been busy getting us set up (including reliable internet access) for a long stay. Our truck now has been unloaded. I have also been trying to take help with some of Phyllis’ tasks.

Our travels from Indiana to the San Antonio area were very hard on Phyllis. In spite of long stops at Memphis TN, Tyler TX, and Franklin TX, Phyllis was very weak when we arrived and suffered from digestive issues as well as the pain that has become a constant companion.

We also had 2 issues arise with our truck (which we nursed through and will get repaired now).

Our Travel Trailer had a major issue in Buffalo TX. The shackles for the springs and axles on the right rear broke for the second time. We also found one other that was cracked. A welder happened to be at the filling station, and three hours later we were on our way. His fee was reasonable and he had us make out the check to his church.

Now that we are in the San Antonio area, we will get Phyllis started with medical help that lets her see the same professionals over a period of time. One of the disadvantages of being in a different site in the summer and often working winters as well is you are always seeing new medical professionals, or doing without medical support.

Larry will also see if he can find clients for technical support or find other work.

As for TravelingMorgans.Com, there are at least two years worth of work ahead to get all of our material loaded on it. Then Larry will begin to get it optimized for search engines and make it more friendly to phones and tablets.

Right now Larry is getting the BADLANDS section updated from our time in South Dakota last year.
He will send out a newsletter when this is updated for production.

If you want to follow along, use this link:
This will be the new introductory page for an 8 page section. The links to the other pages are on the left for now.
I have elected not to mention this in the PREVIEW tab, but may do this later.

Will we begin traveling again and working our way around the country? Unless the quality of life improves considerably for Phyllis, this will not be feasible. Hopefully, her quality of life will improve. Since our travels were financed by our working, we will have to find some other funding to travel, even if Phyllis improves enough to travel. The web site is one way.

Larry will also be uploading our AMAZON connection, and we may see some funding from Amazon “finders fees”.
There is an AMAZON tab on most pages of our web site, including
For those that want to go straight to Amazon, try
We have pages of personally tested recommendations for products in several categories
There is also an Amazon Category Search page
We will certainly listen to any suggestions from our friends on how to make our Amazon connection easier and more useful to our friends and visitors.

Larry could get some internet based technical work to fund travels, but has not found any yet.

If this is the end of our travels, we have had a marvelous run and seen many things we had not expected to be able to see.
We plan to enjoy ourselves whatever happens.

Please let us know how things are going in your life. We love to get together with old friends and communicate with them if we cannot get together.

Greetings from Memphis

The Traveling Morgans have started their trip back to Texas.
Since the summer job did not work out, we will start Winter early this year and
try to get some medical help for Phyllis. Our stay is at Bulverde, just North of San Antonio.

We are presently at Memphis, and celebrated our 47 th wedding anniversary a few day late by visiting
Marlowe’s BBQ, which is a favorite for both of us. We stay at the Graceland RV Park, and Marlowes
will send a Pink Cadillac Limousine to pick us up or deliver very good food. Graceland RV Park is just behind
the Heartbreak Hotel at the very end of Lonely Street.

We will leave the visits to Graceland to true Elvis fans. Elvis had possibly more influence on American Culture than any other person in the
20th century, but we have not felt any need to idolize or visit his home.

There are many reasons to visit Memphis.
Many involve music such as blues and how it evolved to rock ‘n roll.
Good food tops the list, including two schools of barbecue.

From Memphis, we will head to Tyler TX for a few days, then on to Bulverde.
