Flint, Michigan

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 132 miles from Grosse Ile to Flint, Michigan.

In yesterday’s Blog entry I discussed an electrical problem I was having keeping the Bronco battery charged while driving down the highway. After further consideration I decided not to take it to an electrical shop because I’ve experienced occasional problems with a connector in the past…usually rectified by jiggling it. So, first stop yesterday was at an auto parts store where I bought a new connector. It’s kind of pain in the butt type of job, so I’ll replace it when the moment is right.

Second stop of the day was at America’s Discount Tires where I had the tires rotated and balanced on the Bronco. They accommodated me by doing the job without my having to unhook the Bronco from the motorhome…

Third stop of the day was to have an oil change done on the motorhome.

Fourth stop of the day was in Fraser to meet with an old friend Ray Ferullo whom I had not seen since I was 17 years old. We enjoyed a nice reunion at an Outback Steakhouse…



Continuing down the road we finally ended up at VFW Post #3027 in Flint, Michigan. We parked in the back of this friendly post where they even provided a 30 amp service electrical hookup…

Since it was away from the road we enjoyed a restful night’s sleep. We’ll continue our northward journey later this morning.

Enjoying visiting with old friends is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity 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!
