A One Night Visit With The Bedingers – Southworth, Washington

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.
I’m currently in my 21st year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Fort Townsend State Park in Port Townsend, Washington. I’ll be departing from here this coming Sunday.


(Note: I’m currently a little discombobulated right now. My normal mode is to blog what I experienced yesterday. Right now, I’m several blogs behind my experiences. I expect to be back in my normal mode within a couple of weeks.)


A week ago Sunday I enjoyed a one night visit with the Bedingers in Southworth, Washington. Who are the Bedingers, you ask? The are the family that bought my famous motorhome in which I made my 2004 Mexico/Central America trip. They bought the motorhome in 2009 with the admonition…if you are ever in our area, give us a call and stop by. That’s just what I did.

Back on this past June 16th, I unexpectedly came across Ned with his new motorhome at Ocean Shores, Washington. You can read about that encounter and about the ultimate fate of the motorhome they bought from me in 2009, by clicking this link…



Here are some of the photos that I took…

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 parked my motorhome and Bronco in the driveway. A Peek-A-Boo through the trees gives only a small hint of what awaits…







Perched atop a hill crest, their home affords a dynamic view of Puget Sound…






Directly above the ferry landing at Southworth. Uninhabited Blake Island is prominent in the background…






The view continues from inside their home…






Jane, Ned and Miles Bedinger are great hosts…






Ned and Miles love to cook. I was treated to a great baked salmon, broccoli, corn and yogurt fruit salad meal…






Also visible from their home is the Seattle Space Needle which Google earth puts at 10.15 miles…

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!
