Sixes, Oregon

Mary has safely returned home from a trip to Turkey with her 14-year-old grandson. I spoke with her on the phone yesterday. She was pleasantly exhausted and will spend the next several days resting, catching up on emails and unloading and editing the many photos she took on the trip. I expect her to catch up with me sometime in mid-May somewhere in Oregon.

Three days ago I drove the 168 miles from Blue Lake, California to Sixes, Oregon. The entire drive was on U.S. Highway 101, a road I have driven several times before. I’m parked in the yard of a friend. I’m planning to leave here tomorrow. Now that I’ve arrived here, I’m planning to slow my pace and spend the rest of May along the Oregon Coast.

Mary and I last visited Aaron and Cheryl here on October 3, 2011…


We last saw them on October 8, 2012 in Apache Junction, Arizona…


I first met Aaron and Cheryl in February, 1997 and we had been fast friends since that time. Sadly, Aaron passed away on February 26, 2013 doing what he really loved…dancing. He was truly a unique man…very funny and interesting. I miss his friendship greatly. Since that time Cheryl has had to carry on trying to adjust to widowhood. My visit with her here has been both trying and beneficial. The first day she cried a lot. The second day not quite as much. She has told me more than once…I’m living with my memories.

They were married 23 years. She has created a “memorial shelf” containing his ashes and other articles he liked…


She now lives alone with her two cats. Here she is with Charlie…Lucky was out and about when I took this photo…


She has finally gotten around to selling their 1996 36′ Elite motorcoach…


If you or someone you know might be interested in it, It’s on a consignment lot in Mesa, Arizona. You can read all about it by clicking this link…

It’s in excellent condition and she’s only asking $9,900 for it. It you have an interest, you can email her at

Yesterday was cloudy/sunny at 59 degrees. Today’s forecast is cloudy with an occasional shower and 63 degrees. A bit cool, but delightful compared to the three days of mid-90’s I was in four days ago!

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!
