An Unexpected Meeting…

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.

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Oceana RV Resort in Ocean City, Washington. I’ll be here until July 2nd.


In 2009, Ned Bedinger bought my last motorhome…the one I owned for ten years and that went to Central America. Ned lives in South Port, Washington. Expecting to be in his area in about a month, I called his home a few days ago only to be told by his wife that he was in Ocean Shores, Washington…just three miles down the road from my current location.

A couple of phone calls later Ned and I agreed to meet for breakfast at a casino where he spent several nights with his motorhome. We spent a couple of hours reminiscing about the past. He informed me that my last motorhome met its demise in Santa Cruz, California, the victim of a fuel-leak fire. It wasn’t totally destroyed, so they managed to salvage their possessions. Shortly thereafter they bought a replacement as seen in the below photo…
