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 at La Connor, Washington. I’ll depart here August 23rd.
(Note: My slow,intermittent Verizon signal continues awaiting attention. Some irregularities may occur.)
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 are still parked here. Thank goodness we have air-conditioning!
Mary continues busy in packing for her trip back home. She’ll begin her trip by catching the Albuquerque Airport Shuttle in Farmington…about 35 miles from here on Tuesday. She has collected/purchased an amazing amount of stuff and is trying to figure out how to get it all back home. The motorhome is not scheduled to arrive back there until November 2013.
I’m staying busy here by trying to rest and recoup from my injuries of the terrible accident that occurred three weeks ago today. Lot’s of reading. some computer time and playing with my new camera. Here’s an example of the zoom capacity…
As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…
Looking out the dinette window…look at just about center at the top of the ridge and you’ll see a small squarish rock outcropping…
A little closer view…
and a closer view…
Pretty neat, huh? These photos do not use the full extent of the 30x optical zoom. Another 30x zoom is also available in digital zoom. All photos are hand-held…no tripod was used.
Here is a panorama looking southeast along the nearby river…
We plan to drive the motorhome to Farmington tomorrow where we’ll do laundry in preparation for Mary’s 7:00 AM departure Tuesday morning. Temperatures here are in the low to 90’s…to danged hot for me! As soon as Mary departs, I’ll head for higher ground.

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…
