Bev Beam is a follower of Cascade Ramblings. She lives in Sherwood Oregon and has communicated with me several times over the past years by e-mail and with comments to my blog, but I have never seen or talked to her in person. Imagine my surprise when she showed up at my campsite at Buckskin Mountain State Park yesterday! She had been to Lake Havasu for her yearly pilgrimage to Buses By the Bridge, and just wanted to stop by and thank me in person for all the work I do with Cascade Ramblings. I can tell you, it certainly made my day. At 76 years of age, she is a brave soul with a free spirit that travels where she pleases in this VW van with 225,000 miles. Thanks again Bev, you are a real inspiration for me to keep on Rambling.
