Olympia, Washington – Day 2

The motorhom3 is parked in the parking lot of Podiatrist Dr. Donald G. Hovancsek who kindly allowed me to park for two nights across the street from the VFW Post #318. I’ll depart here later this morning.

I’m expecting to arrive at Mary’s home in central California, October 15th. While there, I’ll do minor repairs and major cleaning of the Bronco and motorhome.

Yesterday, I visited more friends…

The first stop was at my long-time hairdresser Keri Kaufmann when I lived in Olympia a long time ago. I always stop in unannounced just to surprise her. This year she surprised me by not being there. She’s currently on vacation in Barcelona, Spain. This photo was taken in 2014…

Then to the studios of TCTV, Thurston County Community Television, where I visited my friend Deb Vinsel, Manager for the last 25 years. She proudly shows their new digital control room which was all torn apart for the remodel when I visited her last year. From 1992-95, I produced and hosted 95 programs on TCTV at their old location on Limited Lane…




Then an enjoyable late afternoon meal with my long-time friend Shawn Newman. Shawn is a full-time Attorney and also is currently teaching five evening classes at St. Martin’s College. He’s a very funny guy, also very knowledgeable and interesting. That’s for a great visit Shawn!




I missed seeing my good friend’s Larry and Jan Seaberg as they are currently visiting Germany…




It does my heart good to visit with old friends. That’s the major problem with growing older…they start to disappear in death.  I’ve lost several good friends in recent years.  😦

Then an enjoyable happy-hour visit with the friendly folks at VFW Post #318.


I hope you enjoyed the photos.

 Yesterday was a mostly cloudy and 66 degrees. Forecast for today is mostly cloudy/rain and 63 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!

My current travel rig is a 2006 Fleetwood 26′ Class A Motorhome and a towed 1986 Ford Bronco II, Eddie Bauer Model. This photo was taken in the desert at Slab City near Niland, California…



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!
