Fontana, California

Yesterday I drove the motorhome 85 miles from Palm Desert to Fontana, California. The drive was made on the dangerous Interstate Highway 10…made more dangerous yesterday by strong winds. While the speed limit is 70, some of yesterday’s journey was made at 40 miles per hour. In the below photo we pass through a huge wind generation wind farm just west of Palm Springs. The farm attests to the nearly constant winds in this area…

We are parked at the rear of American legion Post #262 in Fontana where they were kind enough to provide an electrical hookup for us which makes life more convenient…


Here’s the usual dinette window photo. While not spectacular…it’s a convenient location. This morning Mary will fly home from Ontario Airport about 10 miles from here. Pressing matters there are requiring her personal attention. I’ll be traveling alone for about the next three months. This part-time arrangement was part of our agreement when we met in 2008…


The strong wind advisory remains in effect through today. I’ll spend at least one more day here.

Yesterday was a sunny day at 75 degrees. Forecast for today is sunny and 78 degrees.


Enjoying nice weather 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!
