Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ 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 Thousand Trails Thunderbird RV Resort in Monroe, Washington. I’ll depart here June 25th.
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.

Yesterday we drove the Bronco the about 15 miles from our parking spot at VFW Post #8248 to downtown Galveston, Texas.
Note: Our Internet account starts a new cycle on February 5th, We are currently approaching our maximum allowable usage. Consequently we’ll be on a “photo diet”…posting fewer pictures than usual until then.
Yesterday we went to visit the tall ship Elissa and then wandered around the area known as The Strand. Lunch at the Gumbo Bar where Mary had the Seafood Gumbo and I had the Chicken and Sausage Gumbo. Galveston has numerous attractions which fall into the “Touristy” category for which there is no appeal for Mary or myself. So…later this morning we’ll be moving on.
About one week ago the electric window on the passenger side of the Bronco quit working. I bought a replacement motor at Napa and first thing yesterday morning I had it installed by a body shop next to the VFW.
Here are some of the photos that I took…

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!
