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 22nd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here
The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in La Connor, Washington. I’ll depart here July 24th.
Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.
In 2011-2013, Mary and I did a 682 day, 12,679 miles in the motorhome and 8,000 miles in the Bronco, circumnavigation of the United States, which I called The Great Adventure. I called it so because other than my oldest granddaughter’s high school graduation in June in Connecticut, I didn’t know where we would be going or when we would be there!
So, unless I do something really different and unusual warranting a new blog entry, I’ll be posting entries from that trip.

That’s because you are walking upon the wooden floors of the Hubbell Trading Post at Ganado, Arizona. Deep in the Navajo Nation, since 1876, this is the oldest continually operated trading post in the United States.
Yesterday Mary and I drove the about 75 miles from Window Rock to Chinle, Arizona, the location of Canyon de Chelly (d’SHAY). Along the way we took a two-hour stop at the historic Hubbell Trading Post at Ganado, Arizona.
NOTE: Technical difficulties today! WE ARE UNABLE TO CONNECT TO OUR VERIZON INTERNET SIGNAL. WE ARE CONNECTED TO THE INTERNET SIGNAL HERE IN THE COTTONWOOD CAMPGROUND. THEY HAVE SOME KIND OF A FILTER THAT DOES NOT ALLOW THE UPLOADING OF PICTURES, SO YOU WILL NOT SEE ANY OF THE 126 PHOTOS THAT I TOOK.
Note: Today (7/16/17) I added the Google Photos link and now you can see the 126 photos. Here’s the link…
THE BEST I CAN DO AT THIS TIME IS TO GIVE YOU THESE TWO WEBSITE LINKS…
When you step through the small entrance door of this trading post, you truly step back in time! It was really neat to experience this place. Even by today’s standards it’s still out in the middle of nowhere! It truly was out in the middle of nowhere back in 1876!
Visiting old National Historic Sites is another joy of the full-time RVing lifestyle!
