Allentown, Pennsylvania Day 2 (GA506)

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 Mary’s home in Murphys, California. I’m planning to depart November 26th.

 

 

 

 

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.

This entry was posted May 30, 2013…

 

 

 

 

The motorhome is parked at American Legion Post #367 in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Uncertain of our plans at this moment…we may stay another day.

 

 

Yesterday morning, because our coach batteries were getting low, I turned on the motorhome engine to charge them. Shortly thereafter, the Check Engine Light came on…Grrr!

Have I ever told you the road of life is a dusty one?…

So, off we went to a local Workhorse Chassis repair shop…

Where they went to work on the problem. Three hours and slightly less than $300 we were on our way back to American Legion Post #367. Considering we’ve had the motorhome for almost four years and 25,000 miles…this is the first time it needed any attention. Not bad…

After parking the motorhome we took the Bronco and went to town, First stop was the apartment that I lived in 36 years ago. I lived in the lower unit…

I went back into my 1977 pictures file to pull this photo of me in front of my apartment half my lifetime ago. What a difference 36 years makes! Where have the years gone?…

Then to the church where the Liberty Bell was hidden September 1777 to August 1778. You can read about this event by clicking this Wikipedia link…

On the way home we passed these row houses which are plentiful in this area…

This morning at 5:30 AM I took the below two photos. Portent for the next coming three days where the forecast is for 90, 91, and 90 degrees. The Weather Wimp is what Mary calls me and I hereby declare…YUK, YUK and YUK!!!

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!
