Our travels in July taught us we packed too much into r-Destiny. The overall weight was good, but we just had too much stuff. August was focused on storing the rest of our stuff from the house and adding the “extras” from our pod. Needless to say, a week at Dash Point for the Western WA TBI Camp and a couple more weeks at Longbranch were just what we needed to see how little we really have to have with us.
September was a wonderful adventure across WA for the People First Conference and the TBI Symposium with stops along the way to visit with brain injury facilitators in Cle Elum, Ellensburg, Yakima, Moses Lake, and Spokane. We spent time sharing ideas, learning a lot, and simply enjoying the company of great friends.By the way, if you’re passing through Cle Elum we recommend the Cle Elum Bakery and Owen Meats (the candy store for carnivores).
We rounded off the trip back to Tacoma with Penny’s participation in the CDSME Technical Assistance Conference and sharing time and information with our BEST partner HeadStrong at the Pediatric TBI Conference in Seattle. Wow!
What did we do when we weren’t presenting, talking, or attending conferences? Penny went fishing and Gloria read Rosamond Piltcher’s The Shell Seekers.
