Lacey, Washington – Day 1

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 90 miles from Monroe to Lacey, Washington…in the down-pouring rain.

Interstate Highway 405 which bypasses Seattle is always crowded, but add some rain and it becomes a real bear…

South of Seattle, I drove Interstate Highway 5 in a heavy down-pour. The idiots never slow down and drive like madmen. It’s really dangerous, stressful and tiring driving. But, I managed to arrive safely at American Legion Post #94 in Lacey where they provided me with an electrical hookup so I could run my electric heater. High temperature yesterday was only 48 degrees with a real feel of 44. I’m back off of the road by about 300 feet, so it is nice and quiet…


Here’s the usual dinette window shot…


I unhooked the Bronco and drove the two miles to the Hawks Prairie Restaurant and met my ex-neighbor Ted Price of 16 years and enjoyed a nice meal together. His wife Judy, didn’t make it as she was watching grand-kids. Ted is 77 and stays in real good shape by being active. One of his favorite chores is splitting firewood…


Being really tired from the drive I returned to the motorhome and took a nap. About 4:30 I had some visitors…


About 7:00 PM the sun poked out from under the cloud cover. I haven’t seen the sun in a week! It also appeared to be the end of the storm front…


A little while later I saw the flags over the roof-line of the American Legion Post in the evening twilight…


Today I’ll visit some other friends in the area. High temperature is forecast at 58 degrees and sunny. I’ll depart from here continuing south tomorrow morning.

Last night I watched another old movie from the 1930’s. This time it was 1931- Little Caesar starring Edward G. Robinson. Another classic!

Enjoying friendly American Legion Posts 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!
