Since we've been on the road, my consumption of news has been cut way back. I think I feel better for it. My Internet time has been limited so I've concentrated on taking care of business and keeping in touch with friends. The news sites are clicked on just long enough to see if we are in the middle of a nuclear war or something.
One thing caught my attention: it's a really bad flu year. People are dying and not just the old and infirm either. However, there are bad years every decade or two. This doesn't look like a Spanish Flu type disaster.
With a limited news diet, my state of mind has improved. There things that concern me, but there is also a much smaller subset of those things I can actually affect.
We'll be leaving the Keys on Thursday. My lovely wife and I have been trying to schedule some campground time. A number of reservations have been made -enough to get us started. Our camping rig can work in everything from full facility sites to more primitive campgrounds. That gives us a lot of flexibility. Always nice to have options.
