Alzheimer's Trippin'

The Journey Continues

Alzheimer's Trippin' with George

Click on the video to hear a sample of the audio book.  In this sample, George and I are on a last-hurrah road-trip following his diagnosis. 

George keeps leaving the door open.

It wouldn't be a big problem except we are house & cat sitting and I don't want the cat to get out on my watch!

 George, however, is living with dementia. He used to be the one to make sure all the cupboards and doors and drawers were shut, I was the one that would neglect them and leave them open. Dementia has changed all that.

Listen in at this sample.

I am excited to have this book released in Audio book! Robin Siegerman does an excellent job reading with the light and adventurous mood I tried to create while telling our story.

Narrated by Voice Actor Robin Seigerman.

Available on Amazon/Audible and itunes.

 "If you think life is over after an Alzheimer's diagnosis, then you should read Susan Straley's Alzheimer's Trippin' with George: Diagnosis to Discovery in 10,000 Miles.  Susan and George clearly love the outdoors, exploring and riding their three-wheeled recumbent "trikes" on various trails. In journal form and with lots of photos, Susan shares their story of traveling across the country and the day-by-day experience of watching George's decline. It's an inspirational journey, despite the losses, and I was uplifted by reading it!" Amazon Reader 

 “A courageous journey with many twist and turns as two people grasp the challenges of Alzheimer’s This is a true story of two people taking a cross country trip to celebrate 40 years of marriage with an unwelcome guest known as Alzheimer’s. The writer shares their story in a most candid way. Not only does she share the geographical trip but the many nuances of the disease and how it impacts the mundane and extraordinary events of each day. A brave journey that one will benefit from reading.” Amazon Reader 

"Beautiful, moving, heart wrenching. A challenging situation to be in is an understatement. This was a unique perspective." Amazon Reader 

"I enjoyed vicariously tagging along with Susan and George on their quite lengthy road trip adventure. Despite his medical and behavioral challenges, they were able to keep on exploring, biking, and hiking more than most people would even without such impediments." Amazon Reader 

"Others dealing with dementia and their loved ones and caregivers might well benefit from reading about Susan’s and George’s ways of coping and continuing to live each day to its fullest." Amazon Reader

 "I loved the way the author tells the story of her journey with George with empathy and humor, with an easy to read style that makes the pages fly by. What a wonderful approach to Alzheimer's Disease!" Amazon reader

Slooowly making my way to Wisconsin, but first this, and this, and this.

Greetings!  I am back in the lovely state of New York. This will be a long post with a lot of pictures.  So skim if you want.  I just wanted you to know I am still thinking of you and wanting to share the sites with you. I am on my way to Wisconsin.  I have been on my way, kind of, since I left Florida in late April.  But I took a few side trips.  I wanted to see New York and Vermont and see friends in Canada.  I wanted to spend time with Steve, I wanted to see Steve's New York home, and I wanted to meet his extended family. Right now I am near Niagara Falls on the American side. My friends, Jean and Keith are in a motel near my campground to visit me.  I had planned on writing to you today. It will be my last chance to connect with you until after Steve and I return to his home to prepare for the Gap and C&O ride. In between, there will be lots of days of driving, a full week of riding in Wisconsin as Steve and I do a little tour,   and lots of site-seeing and visiting friends

The Lovely Finger Lakes Region, NY

Greetings from the Watkins Glen Public Library. The library is in the same building as  the  International Motor Racing Research Center .   Watkins Glen, NY has a 6.6 mile racing route. Watkins Glen State Park Watkins Glen State Park, where I am camped, is on a hill above town.   When I drove in to get to my camping spot I saw a lot of the same brand of campers throught the campground.  Altos were having a gathering.  I had researched these campers when I was dreaming of driving the country.  They are made in Canada and currently there is a two year wait to receive one once you order it. The first morning I was in the park, I drove part-way down the hill and then walked the Gorge, which is a big feature of this park. The instructions on the campground map was to stay to the right of a pond and then go down "Coaches Staircase". While I walked the Gorge trail, I kept saying "WOW!".  The CCC's had created the stone stairs and walkways. Then I remembered Steve compa
