The motorhome is parked at American Legion Post #262 in Fontana, California. Mary is home attending to personal matters. I expect to depart here tomorrow.
I’ve had a change of plans. Last September during my eye exam at the Seattle, Washington VA Hospital I was told I have a large cataract in my right eye that should be attended to in the next year. It’s always been difficult getting to that VA Hospital, so I’ve arrangements to change to a local VA Clinic in Sonora, California…about 25 miles from Mary’s home. I now have a March 7th appointment to meet my new primary care doctor there. He will get me to the eye people and I hoping that I might have my eye surgery before Mary leaves for her three-week trip with her grandson to Turkey on April 18th. I now have plans to arrive Mary’s home on March 5th.
Yesterday I drove the Bronco about eight miles to spend an enjoyable two hours at the San Bernardino History and Railroad Museum. You can read about this museum by clicking this link… http://www.sbdepotmuseum.com/museum-history/

The museum is rather dimly lit and most of their old and great black and while photographs are mounted behind glass making for difficult photography conditions, nonetheless…
Here are some of the photos that I took…

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!

Yesterday I drove the about 75 miles from Thousand Palms, California to arrive at Slab City. It’s located about three miles out into the desert from the small city of Niland, CA on the southeastern shore of the Salton Sea which is about 35 miles long.
The Slab City area in Southeastern California as see by Google Earth.
Known as Camp Dunlap during World War II, RVers found it in the 1960’s. I’ve been stopping here for the last 16 years.
Here’s a couple of links to help you get a better understanding of this most unusual place!
Here’s everything you could want to know about the Salton Sea…
The afternoon temperature was 65 degrees under partly sunny skies!
