July - October, 2008 - Karen and Lee stayed in the Orlando area awhile, While taking care of Brian's business and his dog, China. Plus Karen needed time to heal from her blood clots. They did not continue their RV travels for 10 months, having a lot of details to handle.

And of course, they had no choice but to continue with their day-to-day lives. And although there were some good days when they participated in a few local activities as shown below, just to keep themselves from going crazy, but their hearts never healed.

Of course, during this trying time, family came to help out. Karen and Lee enjoyed having their grandson Alex at the campground for awhile.

Then the detective told Karen and Lee that they should be near their family in Broward County because it will be quite awhile before there is any new information in Brian's case. So with heavy hearts, they returned to Broward County just in time for Halloween. Karen went to a line dance party and none of her line dance friends knew she had returned. They kept trying to guess who was in the costume shown below. Karen also had a "voice changer" under her costume to disguise her voice. She won 2nd place.

go to the next adventure of the two RV GypsiesSo, they parked their RV at Markham Park, and spent time with family. In November 2008, Karen's friend Monica Ekedahl and her daughter Titti, who live in Sweden, came to Florida for a visit. Monica and Titti wanted to go to Butterfly World in Coconut Creek, so they did.
