Greenville, Mississippi

Note: I’m now expecting to arrive in Memphis tomorrow.  Mary has made her flight reservations. She’ll meet me in Memphis on April 16th.


Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 100 miles from Vicksburg to Greenville, Mississippi.

Most of the travel was on Mississippi Highway 1…also called the Great River Road…

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…


The scenery (or lack thereof) was disappointing with little other than sameness. Little caught my attention to photograph along the way…

This old church with the levee behind it. Behind the levee is the Mississippi River…







More sameness…


After grocery shopping I pulled into the parking lot of VFW Post #4438 and waited for someone to arrive…


The view from the dinette window…


It’s now Saturday morning and I’m still waiting. I’ll depart later this morning.

Enjoying sameness is not another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

The red dot on the below map shows my approximate location in the State of Mississippi. You may double left-click the map to make it larger…


Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

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!

  1. I thought the “sameness” images you presented were quite nice. I’ve come to enjoy the view from the dinette window- looking forward to what you’ll find in Memphis.

      Hi Kathi,
      Thanks for your comment. By sameness, I guess I mean lack of uniqueness. The scenes were pretty enough…but nothing unusual. If you’ve been following my Blog for a while, you know I like uniqueness,,,especially where I can get “creative” with my photography. In all my years of travel, I’ve managed to miss Memphis. I’m sure I’ll find some unique stuff there. Follow along…

      • I’ve come to appreciate your photography. You bring artistry to ordinary things. I think you will LOVE Memphis. No pressure, but I look forward to what you will post…photography wise. !

    Your entry today made me laugh, especially the pictures. Yes, every day in the life of an RVer is NOT chock-a-block with excitement. Some days are just ordinary. But you know that old saying, “the worst day as an RVer is better than the best day as ___________ (fill in the blank, your choice) hahaha

    After 7 years on the road, I’ve come to appreciate the ordinary days as much as the exciting days. I envy you your energy after 10 years!

      Thanks for your comment. The reason I wrote that way is because I seldom see an ordinary day on the road. However, instead of 10 years, I’ve been full-time RVing for 18 years. Jim

    P.S. In Memphis, don’t miss Sun Studio, the birthplace of Rock ‘n Roll.

      Once again, thanks for your comment. It was already on my agenda!
