Wimer, Oregon To Anderson, California

Yesterday I drove the motorhome 188 miles from Wimer, Oregon to Anderson California.

I’m expecting to arrive at Mary’s home in central California, tomorrow and depart November 30th. While there, I’ll do routine maintenance, minor repairs and major cleaning of the Bronco and motorhome.

Today’s Subject…Anderson, California…

Along the way yesterday, I stopped at Medford, Oregon. About two weeks ago, my power step stopped working. Yeah, I was already planning to get a new step mat. For the time being, I was able to push/pull it by hand…

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…






I got on the phone to Fleetwood (motorhome manufacturer) and ordered the new step from them. I had it delivered to Mike’s RV Service in Medford as I knew I would be passing through there on my way to Mary’s place. I arrived at 8 AM yesterday morning and they were ready for the install…






This is what the underside of the step looks like in case you were wondering. After 10 years, the gearbox gave up…






After one hour, the new step and mat had been installed and I was on the road again…





Along the way I passed Lake Shasta. According to a local the newspaper is saying it’s down 135 feet due to the drought…




Arriving at Anderson, I parked in the back of VFW Post #9650 where they have a 30 amp electrical outlet so I could run my air-conditioning…




The usual dinette window photo…




Yesterday was 97 degrees! YUK! Normally I would not be this far south, this early in the fall season. On October 4th, Mary turned 75 years old and her family is having a 75th birthday party for her this Saturday…and I told her I would be there. So, here I am in this horrible heat which is supposed to break in the next couple of days. I’ll spend tonight at Nicolaus, California and arrive at Mary’s home on Thursday.


I hope you enjoyed the photos.

 Yesterday was a mostly sunny and 97 degrees. Forecast for destination today is sunny and 92 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!
