I Begin My Fourth Quarter-Century…

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,500+ 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 Thousand Trails Palm Springs RV Resort in Palm Desert, California. I’m scheduled to depart here December 21st.



Today is my 76th birthday. I thought it would be fun looking at how I’ve changed through the years…

Mary took this photo of me about two weeks ago…almost 76…





What a difference 75 years makes! Thankfully I’m a very happy and healthy guy as I step into my 76th year.


Being an ex-engineer, I just cannot help myself… 27,760 days!


I guess now, I’m officially a genuine old man.  🙂



I Hope You Enjoyed The Photos.

Yesterday was a sunny and 74 degrees.  Forecast for today is sunny and 73 degrees.

The red dot on the below map shows my approximate location in the State of California. 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!
