A Smaller Thanksgiving!

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 Mary’s home in Murphys, California. I am scheduled to depart November 28th. While here, I’ll do cleaning, routine maintenance and minor repairs to both vehicles.



Today’s Subject…A Smaller Thanksgiving….


Yesterday Mary, her brother Norman and I drove 92 miles in her Prius to her youngest daughter’s home for Thanksgiving in Davis, California..


The family crowd this year was smaller than usual. Missing were her oldest son and his family (4), her oldest daughter and family (4) and Mary’s grandson Owen aged 15, who was in Greece with his other Grandmother.


Since the crowd was smaller, a smaller turkey was cooked butterfly style to reduce cooking time. It was still very tasty…

The smaller crowd…






Another thing getting smaller is myself. I’ve not yet mentioned it in my blogs, but I’m in the process of losing some weight. I’ve put myself on what I’m calling a modified Atkins Diet…restricting myself to under 25 grams of carbohydrates a day and have lost 20 pounds since Labor day. Yesterday being Thanksgiving I set a goal of not exceeding 50 grams of carbs. You can see by my plate I used a teaspoon to portion out the trimmings. Hopefully, I kept the day’s intake to under 100 grams of carbs… 🙂 …dsc04673


I’ll be keeping on my restricted eating habits as I’ve got more weight to lose. More on that topic as time goes by.


It was a very nice and enjoyable day, as I hope was yours.

I hope you enjoyed the photos!

Yesterday was mostly sunny and 60 degrees. Forecast for today is mostly sunny and 59 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…
