6,941 Days Ago…

The motorhome is parked at the Paradise Casino in Winterhaven, California. Less than 1/2 mile away is the Colorado River and on the other side is Yuma, Arizona. I’m expecting Mary to rejoin me here in later January.

6,941 days ago was December 22, 1995…the day I departed Olympia, Washington to begin my full-time RVing lifestyle. Today therefore marks the beginning of my 20th year.

Back in 1995 I was driving a Chevy Suburban and towing an 18 foot travel trailer. Here’s a photo taken while in Baja, California, Mexico in 1998. The film was developed in Mexico hence the spotty photo.

In 1999 I bought a 1983, 23 foot Class A Suncrest Motorhome and a 1984 Ford Bronco II specifically to take to Central America. This photo was taken in 2004 during that 343 day, 16,000+ mile trip…

I met Mary in 2008 and in 2009 we acquired our current motorhome and Ford Bronco II…

The last 19 years have been delightful. Here’s hoping I’ve got another 20 years of full-time RVing. It’s a lousy job…but someone’s got to do it!  🙂

Now…you may be wondering how I came up with the number of days. Did I find an old bunch of calendars and count them all? Nope. If you want to know the number of days between two events, all you have to do is click this link…

Isn’t the Internet wonderful?

Here are yesterday morning’s sunrise photos…




And under cloudless skies, the Indian Mission Church atop Fort Yuma Hill is silhouetted shortly after sunset…


I hope you enjoyed the photos.

Yesterday was a sunny day at 76 degrees.  Forecast for today is sunny with and 76 degrees.

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!
