Swankie is back in the house...

Hello Friends,

 I began this blog over 10 years ago.  Somehow last year... I got locked out of it... and with everything that was going on, I just could not find a way to get back in to edit or post new material.  Today, Oct 8 2020... I did it... I managed to gain access once again.

I have just gone through and deleted all the SPAM comments.  Now, there are some missing photo on some post.  Need to fix that.

Will be creating a new HOME page that will be like an outline to the entire blog.  And I have a new domain name I will be attaching to it once the updates and corrections are made.

Please forgive me for my absence.  Ten plus years... lots can happen.  Unexpected things can happen... things you never had on your bucket list.  Along with Covid, 2020 has surprised me in ways that are nothing short of astrounding... I became an Actress... and am even being put up for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress to Frances McDormand????   WHAT???   Well, I can tell you that was never on my Bucket List.  The day I met her on set, to begin filming with her the next day, was the first day I even knew her name.  Having been on the road for  a decade... I wasn't seeing a lot of movies and didn't know any of her's.   I never saw any of her movies until after we wrapped filming Nomadland.

Since I began this blog I have lost track of some folk, a few have even passed away.  But some are still in touch and in fact many of my nomad friends are in the movie with me.  Linda May and Bob Wells and I were the main supporting non-actor actors in the movie.  It will be out in a limited release on Dec 4, 2020.

Teaser Trailer... new longer trailer will be out soon.

Now that I am back in my blog, I will try to do a better job of keeping you all updated.


P.S.  Please note that my new domain name will be well, why not??  LOL

Who is Swankie?

Anywhere, USA, Full-Time USA traveler, United States
In 2006, I was shopping for a wheelchair. By 2007, I had new knees, better health and by 2008 a kayak. In Aug 2013, I kayaked my 49th state, Alaska, at the Holgate Glacier and in May 2014, I kayaked Hawaii, my 50th state, to celebrate my 70th Birthday and the finale to the wonderful adventure of Kayaking America? Next up... Solo Hiking the Arizona Trail, 820 miles? Maybe. Still healing from shoulder and trying to decide.
