March 29, 2017 (Stockton, CA) - I am now 4,600 miles into an 8,000 mile loop to California. This is the longest planned trip since my last entanglement with surgery, radiation and chemo. Physically I am almost fit and able, but there are some deficits that probably would keep others close to home. For me the obsession calls me and drives me into a leap of faith. It makes me ignore the practical considerations. I think I really do meet the definition of obsessed, could that be the basis for a service connected claim of disability?
