Florence To Newport, Oregon

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.


Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 50 miles from Florence to Newport, Oregon. I’m parked at Thousand Trails Whalers Rest RV Resort a few miles south of Newport. I’ve stayed here a number of times in past years.

I moved to the west coast in 1979 and over the years have driven the coast road numerous times and quite thoroughly explored the area. I plan to depart from here later this morning.


The photos in today’s blog are from some of those past years…



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…



























The below Google Earth image shows the campground location about six miles south of Newport. In case you are wondering about my codes…A tells me the location of the American Legion Post, E tells me the location of the Eagles Club and MU tells me the location of a museum…

 Yesterday was mostly sunny and 65 degrees. Forecast for today is mostly sunny and 63 degrees.

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

The red dot on the below map shows my approximate location in the State of Oregon. You may double left-click the map to make it larger…


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!
