We are back!!

Hello! It's so wonderful to be back... I've so missed my friends..... Hello to all of you!

Lets see where to begin?
Well, I'll start the day before Jorge started his job with CLM and go from there. We stayed at June Lake - Oh Ridge campground and then headed to the visitor center to weigh ourselves in. Well I got on the scale and it said I weighed 146 lbs and that just couldn't be. So Jorge hopped on in hopes I was right. Well for gosh sakes it was and I went into a full blown break down with about 30 people watching me - I so kid you not. I was crying and freaking out. So then off we went with me not happy. Well I had 2 months to get rid of the shame. And you must be asking did I - I SURE DID. I now weigh 132..... Hope you like the before and after pics...... At Saddlebag Campground the elevation is over 10,000 and nothing but hills and mountains so getting the exercise was not a problem. Jorge lost 7 lbs but he didn't need to so you can imagine how happy he is to be on flat land again. I did not change my eating patterns because that was not the problem. I think from being in Mount Shasta and sad as can be and major depressed because of what went on there it was no brainer where the weight stemmed from.

And so I had to share that first with all my family and friends....

I had the best time up in Saddlebag Campground and meet a lot of great wonderful people that I will forever hold in my heart.... I do need to thank so wonderful people for taking great care of Jorge and I and if it weren't for these people we would of gone nuts.

Carmen and Richard the owner of the Saddlebag Resort who have the best workers of any business I've ever encountered. They adopted us and took the best care of us and step in to help me when a certain camper got in my face and the police needed to be brought in. These wonderful people really stepped up to help us. They where great to Jorge in helping Jorge understand the area and how things worked. I will miss our dinners and drives with them - hope the year fly by so we can see them once again..... Thank you guys!!

Kristin the 19 year old who worked at the resort. This little girl took us on some great hikes - hikes I never dreamed of Jorge and I going on in a life time. This 19 year old set a standard for us and we so look forward seeing where this young lady goes in life. She is amazing person who we have so much respect for....

Jim Q - Jorge's supervisor/boss. The one person who was most concerned about how I was doing when this awful camper got in my face and the other crap he pulled on me. He has been one super great guy - always the leader but also with a caring ear and eager to help Jorge do a better job. Because of him Jorge will stay with CLM....

I have so many adventures to tell you about during our stay at Saddlebag and about certain wonderful camper that will be our life friends..... But you'll have to check back to get these stories because we just got down the hill and still trying to catch up on things....

I was asked who I missed the most. And you'd think it was family (which they are fine so there was no need to worry) but it wasn't. It was Jill and Harry and their family (OMG Ruth is following this blog - I'm most honored). I so wanted to call or scream out to them during our good times and bad at Saddlebag.... So glad to have contact again with this most wonderful family.....

Chat soon!
