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
(Note: for whatever reason, I’m currently struggling with a very slow, intermittent Internet Signal. Verizon says it’s working on the problem, but big co-operations have a tendency to move slowly. I’ve been told 3-5 days. Funny how they can instantly take your money when it’s payment time! Some irregularities may result. )
The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort at La Connor, Washington. I’ll depart here August 23rd.
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.

We arrived here the day before yesterday.
We are here for two reasons. The first being that it is only about 35 miles from Farmington, New Mexico and this is from where Mary will take the Albuquerque Airport Shuttle to catch a flight back home next Tuesday. The second reason is that we can have an electrical connection here for only $4 a day to run our air conditioner to help deal with the 90 degree temperatures.
Here’s a photo of the two-mile very washboardy road we had to take to get here…

The view from our dinette window…
This state park has two campgrounds…Pine on the lake shore and Cottonwood along the river shore.. we’re in Cottonwood.
While here Mary will be digging out all of the stuff she wants to take home and start her packing process. I’m trying to rest and recuperate from our recent accident 20 days ago. I’m still wrapping my chest with an elastic bandage. I took the last of my codine-based pain medication this morning.
We expect to leave here Monday morning, go to Farmington to do laundry and get Mary on her shuttle Tuesday morning.

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!
