Curse of the Black Pearl.....

Updated: Apr 10, 2019

I spoke too soon on the eye thing..... At our scheduled appointment with the Retinal doctor he found a new tear in the right eye. After discussion we all agreed that the best course considering how my eyes have acted is a full retinal buckle like we did on the left eye. Surgery scheduled for tomorrow. Problem is, I will be without useable sight in the right eye for 8 weeks and the gas bubble prohibits any altitude changes until then. Then a few weeks before cataract surgery. Then follow ups. So our travels are going to suffer likely through April.

God never laughs harder than when he hears about "your plans".

UPDATE - Cataract surgery went well on April 8. I now have 2 good eyes again. The right eye is likely in the 20/20 area and should get better in the next few weeks. We are very close to truly launching our adventures.

UPDATE - My doctor check up went well. Not problems so far. The bubble is down to about 30% and shrinking. I can at least drive now with vision in the right eye soft but useable. Plans are for cataract surgery in early April.

The Pirate sails again....

Welcome to our site.  We are Paul & Karen Depperschmidt.  In 2018 we decided that in retirement we would downsize, purge, get a Motor Coach and see North America.  In itself that is not unique.  So we complicated things a bit by including Paul's passion, aviation.  We will be pulling a custom trailer that includes our Kitfox Series 7 airplane.  Follow us as we travel the country and report on what we find.
