What if something happens out on the road?

We love being in the mountains, wandering down those old country roads. Seeing the small towns and the folks that live in them. We love the dark night that lives in the country with all the stars shining down on us and that moon just really amazes me.

There is only one downside to being out in the world, just the two of us. That is, we just have only ourselves to rely on. One day we were traveling from Blairsville, Ga. To Murphy, NC. when an ambulance came blaring past us. Lights and siren going.

It made me wonder how we could help ourselves in a medical emergency. I (Laura) worked in a hospital setting, so I know that if something happened to Al, I could do something until help got there. But could he do the same for me?

So, think about this. Do you know how to do CPR? Do you know what a stroke looks like? Can you do something until help gets there? What if you’re boondocking in the middle of nowhere? What if it takes a while for help to get there? So, do yourself a favor.

“Bad Case of Loving’ you” by Robert Palmer. “Doctor, Doctor, give me the news. I’ve got a bad case of loving you. No pills gonna cure my ill, I’ve got a bad case of loving you…”

If you answered “NO” to my questions, then get signed up for a class. Call the local hospital or The American Heart Association. Get into a class. Take one day out of your week. The American Heart Association has an online class. Check out “Online AHA.org | American Heart Association.”

You need to make sure that you can take care of each other and enjoy the ride down those old country roads.

Safe Travels!
