The Latest News…

 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

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort at La Connor, Washington. I’ll depart here August 23rd.


First the bad news…

The smoke-gray hazy skies continue in western Washington due to wildfires in British Columbia, Canada. The sun is really a fiery orange/red color. Here’s last evening’s sunset…

Other bad news…

Yesterday, my cousin Diane’s husband, Bob, died at age 81. He was neat guy!



Verizon so called customer service. I remain with very slow, very intermittent service. The reps are all very courteous and respectful. However, when you have a technical problem, they make out a work ticket and tell you to get in line. My latest phone call an hour ago told me … they hope to have it resolved by next Tuesday or Wednesday. By then it will be over one week … and they call that customer service! Grrrr!




Back on Labor Day. 2016, I began my weight loss program. Yesterday, after 48 weeks and 4 days, I finally achieved the 50 pound mark…which means I’m still averaging slightly over one pound per week. My ultimate goal is only 5.5 pounds away at which time I’ll weigh 157 pounds…the same weight I was at age 21, 55 years ago! Not many folks my age can make that claim! With the weight loss, I’m feeling absolutely terrific!






 Forecast for today is partly sunny and 73 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!

    Getting caught up on some reading of past posts. WOW congratulations!!! That is a great success story and it is exactly what the doctors always advise – slow and steady wins the race! You have great perseverance and will power I must say. I can usually keep myself on track for 2 or 3 months and then not only fall off the wagon, but throw myself under the wheels!!! Please pass along any tips you have discovered on this successful journey!!
    Happy Labor Day Weekend!

      Hi Sue,
      Three tips…
      1- eat three times a day. Don’t worry about the calories, it’s the carbs that make us fat!
      2- Restrict to a MAXIMUM of 25 grams of carbs total daily (this is the hard part!)
      3- Graph your weight loss so you can see it visually and this will give you the resolve to continue with the program.
      Good luck! You can do it!
      Happy Labor Day weekend to you!
