Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,500+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 23rd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here
The motorhome is parked at American Legion Post #19 in Yuma, Arizona. I expect to be here for a while.

Mary remains at home in California tending to medical issues.
The motorhome is currently parked at Santa Rosa Lake State Park, about 125 miles east of Albuquerque. I expect to depart here on Thursday.
The Great Adventure Dinette Window Photos…Update #2…
Back on November 29, 2011, I began what is my 6th circumnavigation of the United States. It will be Mary’s 2nd.
I’m calling it The Great Adventure, because it’s different from my other five circumnavigations…in which the routes were kinda-sorta pre-planned. This time…with the exceptions of attending my oldest grand-daughter’s high school graduation in June 2013 in southeastern Connecticut…I don’t know where we will be going or when we will be there! Hence…The Great Adventure.
The only plan is to live a day-to-day lifestyle and let the wind blow us where it may!
Another thing different about this circumnavigation…in addition to our daily Blog entries documenting our experiences…is in every overnight parking spot I’ve decided to take a photo out of our dinette window.
For instance here’s the view out of our dinette window when we parked at the Dancing Eagle Casino RV Park, Casa Blanca, New Mexico…
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…
During the course of this two-year circumnavigation I’m expecting that we will park overnight in somewhere between 250 and 500 locations. In addition you need to know that when I park the motorhome…I do not say to myself…where’s the best view? It is strictly by chance what view ends up outside of our window.
You need also to remember that we overnight a lot at free locations such as Eagles and Moose Clubs, the American Legion and VFW. Free is good but the views are not always spectacular…but usually somewhat interesting.
Finally I started taking these photos once we departed Yuma, Arizona. Prior to that time all the previous overnight parking locations are repeats from previous times since I travel those routes somewhat regularly.
With that said, I’ve got 47 out-of-the-dinette-windows collected so far. You can see them all by clicking the below link. Once there, click the slide show button…
After viewing the 47 photos I think you’ll agree that the full-time RVing lifestyle exemplifies the saying of “Variety Is The Spice Of Life”! The constant changing of scenery, people, local foods and music is most stimulating. I never tire of it!
I intend to post this Blog entry periodically as The Great Adventure rolls along..
It will be fun to look at the 250 to 500 photos that will finally end up in this collection when the circumnavigation has been completed!
Enjoying a variety of people, places and experiences 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, 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. 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!
