Murphys To Bakersfield, Califronia

 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

Yesterday I drove the motorhome 239 miles from Murphys to Bakersfield, California.



I departed Mary’s home in Murphys, CA yesterday morning shortly after 8:00 AM. The temperature was only 37 degrees…


After 2 hours and 75 miles later,, I finally got on U.S. Highway 99 at Merced which I traveled another 214 miles and arrived in Bakersfield, CA. I’m parked at Moose Lodge #2178 where it’s relatively quiet and I have an electrical hookup. It was also Taco Tuesday evening at the Moose Lodge where I enjoyed a HUGE AND DELICIOUS taco salad for only $3…  🙂

As usual, the view from the dinette window…






Along the way, my new recent installs worked just fine. My new tire pressure monitoring system…





And my new smartphone which fit very nicely into driver’s side cup holder. I used the GPS system which was very accurate on my first ever GPS assisted drive…


At elevation 408 feet in elevation here in Bakersfield, CA, it’s only a little bit warmer than Murphys, CA. It was 60 degrees when I arrived late afternoon yesterday and it was 44 degrees when I awoke at 5:00 AM this morning. Fortunately with an electrical hookup I can use my electric heater to keep warm. The motorhome has a gas furnace but it’s not terribly efficient and just gobbles the expensive propane gas.


I’ll head out once again later this morning.



I hope you enjoyed the photos!

Forecast for today is partly sunny and 60 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!

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 at Rogue River, Oregon in October, 2017…

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French.
